kajeet announces BYOD program, WiMax agreement with Clearwire

We haven’t heard much from kajeet, the cell phone service aimed at tweens, lately. This past week, however, they have made two significant announcements. The first is something we’ve seen from other Sprint MVNOs: a bring your own device deal. These must be inactive phones locked to the Sprint network, yet they can take advantage of kajeet’s unique features such as parental controls, GPS phone locator, and filtered web. Customers can even bring in 4G WiMax handsets thanks to a near wholesale deal between Clearwire and kajeet. This could also lead to kajeet offering more of its own 4G WiMax handsets in the future.
