Just5 is a Safe Cell Phone for Children
With Just5 cell phone and its SOS Emergency Response button you can protect not only your seniors, but also any member of your family, including your children. Just5 phones are inexpensive and very easy to use, so a child can learn how to use it very quickly. Our phone has all necessary features that a phone needs to have, including voice mail, speed dial and texting capability. It also has a flashlight. At the same time you can have an added peace of mind knowing about the phone’s SOS Emergency Response function – and it will not even cost you extra.
Our world is not a safe place, especially for the vulnerable, and as much as no parent would want to think the unthinkable, unfortunately emergency situations can happen to children, and they do. According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, approximately 800,000 children under 18 are reported missing yearly. Some of their other statistics are very disturbing as well, just read this:
“One in 25 children ages 10 to 17 received an online sexual solicitation where the solicitor tried to make offline contact. Four percent of cell phone owning teens ages 12 to 17 say they have sent sexually suggestive nude/semi-nude messages to others via text message. 15 percent of cell phone owning teens ages 12 to 17 say they have received sexually suggestive nude/semi-nude images of someone they know via text.”
Just5 phone is very simple in operation, has only basic features, and it does not have Internet and picture taking/sending capability. It was created to be an essential device, easy to use and without the complexities commonly present in modern cell phones. This means that if you also want to restrict your child’s ability to access content of the Internet while you are not there to control it – this is the perfect solution for you.
Most importantly, you can program up to five phone numbers into the SOS Emergency Response button located on the back of the phone, and when the button is pressed during an emergency, these numbers will be dialed continuously until answered. You can program any numbers that you deem suitable for your child: yours, 911, and anyone else that you think of. The phone will also send out a text message to these five numbers, notifying them that there is an emergency, and the phone will sound a loud alarm siren to attract attention.
Just5 cell phone can be connected to a wireless provider of your choice, with either monthly or prepaid plan options, or can use your existing provider’s SIM card in it.
