Verizon Wireless today said that it has dropped the price of its Family Locator service to a flat fee of $9.99 per month. Previously, the service had a base fee, plus a per-handset fee. Now, $9.99 covers all the phones on a family plan.
Family Locator is accessible from phones and PCs, and parents or account owners can set up alerts that let them know when their kids have taken their phones to different locations. With interactive maps and the integration of VZ Navigator, customers get turn-by-turn directions to the address where their kids are located, making pick up a breeze. A subscription to VZ Navigator is required for integrated use, and data charges may apply for download and use of the app.
