I have never been a T-mobile customer, however I learned about some great tools at their Safe Summer event a few months ago that are definitely worth checking. Different services and tools they offer all accounts along with their great family packages make their offerings good for summer safety… all year round.
The most impressive aspect of the T-mobile accounts is the customer's ability to control just about every aspect of their usage and all the options to control access and use assigned to phones your kids use. The customer admin interface includes features to restrict or set limites on various types of usage for each device in the account (or member of the family if that's how your devices are dispursed). There's also a neat feature that allows you to see where your kids are – assuming they have their phone with them. Or you can even control your phone and block out use if it's stolen. Check out this great recap from Aimee Geise about kids and cell phones for more information about what we learned at this event.
The staff at this event was more than helpful. They were informative and super friendly. I had a great time chatting with them and learning what T-mobile has to offer. Plus, at the end of the night I walked away with a great doorprize – I haven't been home long enough to use it yet.. but mini cupcakes are soon to appear in my home thanks to Aimee Geise from GreebleMonkey and the T-mobile gang!
