Sprint Tries to Make Roads Safer with 'Drive First'

Sprint today announced Sprint Drive First, a new service for Android devices arriving later this year that will render some phone features unusable while in a moving car. Sprint Drive First, which will cost $2 per device, can be set up to: lock the driver's cell phone screen and redirect calls to voice mail and block text-message alerts and auto-respond to the message sender that the driver is currently unavailable. It also can allow access to three defined contacts and three defined mobile apps, such as GPS navigation. The service also has the corresponding web tools necessary to set up and use the service on devices registered to their account. Sprint Drive First is mean to provide parents or businesses with a measure of peace knowing that mobile devices can't be used by their children or employees when they are driving.
