About The Wherifone
The Wherifone is the world's first GSM/GPS locator cell phone designed for children and seniors. The two-way cell phone has built-in Aided-GPS location and "managed dial" features that give on-the-go parents the peace of mind of being able to quickly locate and communicate with their young children and elderly relatives, while also controlling who they can call and how much it will cost. Wherify's Aided-GPS performance will vary, but often provides location results in places where conventional GPS solutions may have performance issues, such as in many types of wood frame buildings and vehicles, and under dense foliage. The Wherifone's patented Aided-GPS location solution is supported by the Wherify Global Location Service Center, which maintains information on all the GPS satellites in space through a series of GPS Reference Receivers, and applies location information into Wherify's mapping and location management system to let users see a device's position displayed on a map or aerial photograph.
The Wherifone GPS Locator Phone will retail for $99.95, and fixed-usage Wherify Family Locator Service plans that include both voice and location services start at just $19.95 per month. The competitively priced, all-inclusive service plans are straightforward and easy to understand, and there are no hidden costs for additional required services, so parents always know exactly what to expect. A Rate Protection Plan is also available to help save money when actual usage exceeds the current service plan's limit. Under the Rate Protection Plan, when a subscriber goes over their basic monthly limit their plan automatically adjusts itself to the most cost-effective service plan rather than blindly racking up overage charges. Their service plan then automatically resets back to the basic plan at the beginning of each month.
