With just about everyone having a cell phone these days, I’m already struggling with the idea of what the appropriate age is to get my daughter one. She hasn’t even asked for one yet, but knowing I have a way of reaching her is definitely a way to keep peace of mind some days. Knowing theft rates are high amongst students and cell phones, I needed other options aside from a traditional cell phone. I also don’t want her to have the ability to call anyone other than her important contacts or have access to apps and internet.
FiLIP 2 is just what I was looking for. A simple way to stay connected with my daughter when she’s not with me, and the simplicity of having just what we need and nothing more. The way it works is easy- I downloaded the app to my cell phone from the iOS store, connected the phone number from my FiLIP account, and Voila! we are connected! FiLIP also features a locator, a safe zone, and an emergency call button. When the emergency button is pushed, FiLIP 2 will call the primary account holder and if there is no answer, it will continue to call the contacts listed in the account until someone is reached. If your child has left the safe zone you have set up, an alert will also be sent to your cell phone notifying you of the location.
Right now, FiLIP 2 is offering a free gift, a wristband accessory, with the purchase of a new device to the first 100 readers who make a purchase.
