    I am looking at getting my son a GPS watch. Unfortunately, everything out there is pretty much junk from companies I've never head of, or has some insane monthly fee. We use AT&T for phone service, and they don't offer anything for this anymore. Verizon has the GizmoPal 2 from LG, which should be pretty good. But it says you have to be on Verizon. Has anyone tried running one of these through a Straight Talk plan? I really don't want to switch carriers for our main phones, since we'd have to replace our (paid-off) phones, and end up with a higher monthly bill. Verizon only charges $5/mo access for one of these, but it HAS to be an add-on, they don't offer a stand-alone service for it. Even if I get a smartphone plan for one using a Verizon SIM through straight talk, I'll still save money every month.

    I don't want to be one of "those" helicopter parents, but I'd rather be safe than sorry! Please help!

    Okay, I may be incorrect when I said it had to be an add-on to a phone plan. When I was on their site before, it was tied to an unlimited plan. But I checked again, changed the plan to a 1 GB plan, and it isn't prompting me to add a smartphone. If it's possible, that'll be $15/mo, and well worth it over a Straight Talk plan. I'm going to stop into Verizon tonight and see what they say.

    Even if I don't get a response from anyone on here, I'll update it for anyone who may need this info in the future.

    I am curious about how this worked out for you... I know that this post is over a year ago, but we are on Sprint and looking at the New Gizmo watch for our daughter.... My dad has a Verizon plan that we could add it to if absolutely necessary... But how does it work with the parental controls if you the parent are on a different wireless network?
