kajeet may be based in Bethesda, Maryland, but kids are the center of their universe. That's why they made the only pay-as-you-go cell phone service that puts kids first.
Their story began with three dads figuring out how technology, kids and parents work best ("kajeet" is an anagram of the first letters of the names of the company's founders' children). Thinking of their own kids, they designed a service to provide them with everythingAbout kajeet! they need to safely explore the exciting new world of mobile tech.
They believe kids are smart. At kajeet, their entire philosophy springs from this simple core idea. They want kids to be agile with technology. They want kids to have fun. They want them to be empowered and safe, and they want to help them respond with confidence to what's happening in their world.
Not incidentally, they want their parents and guardians to be involved too. Because having a cell phone is not just fun, it's a responsibility - a shared responsibility. So they've designed kajeet to incorporate a full suite of tools to help families customize and manage every aspect of their kajeet experience.
Finally, they believe that their customers are as much a part of the kajeet brand as everyone who works here. That's why they encourage you to contact us and let us know what you think. They're really busy, and they may not get to reply to every e-mail individually, but rest assured: They read them all and they're listening.
