The Kids Connect Phone is a parent's "all-in-one security solution". It is the best way for parents to obtain peace of mind while their children are away from home.

The Kids Connect Phone is GPS equipped, which allows real-time tracking of the phone via the Android or iOS app, or on any web enabled device. Parents can also see where their children have been with the location history feature.

The SOS feature, when activated, will send a text message with the GPS location to up to 4 cell phone numbers and then it will auto-dial the numbers on the SOS list until one is answered. The SOS feature can also be programmed to call a help center where a live operator will answer the phone and assist the child at an additional cost.

The geo fencing feature allows parents to set a predetermined area and receive an alert if the phone enters or leaves the area.

The voice monitoring feature allows parents to send a text message to the phone and within a minute the phone will call back without activating the screen allowing them the ability to monitor the child's surroundings.

The Kids Connect Phone is equipped with 4 speed dial numbers as well as a 20 number phone book. These pre-programmed numbers are the only numbers that the child can call as well as being the only numbers that can call the phone. There are many more details and limitations of the phone and GPS at the company website, so check them out before ordering.

The Kids Connect Phone costs $79.95, and phone plans range from about $13 to $17 a month. Their plans use the T-Mobile Network.
