The wireless phone is the number-one tool teens use to communicate. With schools banning wireless-phone
use during class time and family dinners interrupted by texts, families are looking for solutions to help teens
use their phones responsibly. Sprint provides a suite of services to help parents stay connect to their children and help protect their physical and virtual safety.
These services include:
Sprint Mobile Controls
Powered by Safely, a division of Location Labs, Sprint Mobile Controls allows parents to see rich graphical representations of how their family calls, texts and uses applications, as well as lock phones remotely at specific times. Sprint Mobile Controls is available on many Sprint smartphones for $4.99 per month per line and includes a 15-day free trial. To learn more or sign up for service, visit www.sprint.com/mobilecontrols.
Sprint Family Locator
Sprint Family Locator is a location-based service that uses Sprint's state-of-the-art GPS technology to enable a parent to use a phone or PC to locate a child's phone on a map. The service also gives the address, surrounding landmarks and accuracy of the phone's location within a specified radius. Parents can also set up safety checks that alert them if their child is not at a designated location at a specific time. Sprint Family Locator costs $5 per month to locate up to four phones. For more information and to register, visit www.sprint.com/familylocator.
Sprint Drive First
Sprint Drive First is an application that automatically locks a mobile phone when a car is moving more than 10 mph, disabling phone functionality, directing incoming calls to voice mail and silencing distracting alerts for emails and text messages. Anyone texting the driver will receive an automated message indicating the person they texted is driving. A locked device displays a home screen with exit and emergency-911 buttons to override the app. Sprint Drive First can be overridden if the user is a passenger in a car, on a bus or train, but the parent or account holder can choose to receive notifications when the service is overridden. Sprint Drive First costs $2 per month. For more information and to register, visit www.sprint.com/drivefirst.
