And while only one reader will win the tablet, we all can learn some important tech safety tips that apply to our families this summer.

Through a suite of custom mobile applications and services, T-Mobile helps let you know where your kids are and that they are using their cell phone responsibly.

  • FamilyWhere: Keep tabs on your kids by tracking the location of their phones. For your latchkey kid or teen, simply check in on your own phone as to the location of theirs.
  • Web Guard: More and more people use phones to access the Internet every day—and that may include your kids. Web Guard is a free optional add-on feature, which restricts access to websites on your phone when you use the T-Mobile network. There are Child, Teen and Young Adult settings so the content that is restricted can change as your children grow. There is no charge to turn this feature on or off. (It’s not foolproof, of course, but it is a great start!)
  • Family Allowances: Afraid that your child’s texting and minutes are going to go through the roof (and over budget) this summer? Family Allowances® makes it easy for parents to set up-front limits on family plan text messages, minutes and money spent on game and app downloads. Family Allowances keeps you in control and helps you avoid unexpected overage charges on your bill. 

And that’s just the beginning of T-Mobile’s awesome features for families! Next week I’ll announce the giveaway winner and share more great tips from T-Mobile.
