Sprint today revealed a new handset meant for children called WeGo, which is paired with location tracking and parental controls for Mom and Dad's peace of mind. The WeGo has a simple LCD screen, a single button on the front, and volume buttons on the side that double as scrolling tools for the user interface. The device is rugged and water resistant. Using the online portal, parents have full control over the device and its use. The service plan for WeGo costs $10 per month and it includes 1,000 voice minutes and 1,000 text messages. The WeGo can store up to 20 contacts and parents can determine when those contacts can call or message the WeGo, as well as when the child can make outgoing calls or send one of several pre-determined text messages to those contacts. The WeGo service offers notifications that can be sent to parents if the phone has low battery, is powered down, if the panic button is activated, or if the device exceeds a certain speed. Parents are able to pinpoint the WeGo on a map and track its location at scheduled intervals or continuously. The phone offers easy access to 911 emergency services and a loud alarm that sounds when the ripcord is pulled. WeGo costs $120 with a contract or $5 per month via installment plan. It cannot be added to Framily plans and must be paired with at least one regular line/account. It is available starting today.
