Verizon says it has just the plan for parents looking to give kids their first smartphone.
The new Just Kids plan is designed to give parents “peace of mind” when taking the plunge to give their kids their first smartphones. Angie Klein vice president of marketing for Verizon said it addresses a major pain point in deciding when to allow kids to get their first smartphone.
“Kids are wanting phones earlier and earlier,” she said. “But parents are leary and want to make sure they’re not exposed to things they aren’t ready for. And that’s where our plan comes in.”
