Keep your family safe online. Get great savings on Net Nanny products! The Family Protection Pass is a software bundle for families with Android devices and Mac and Windows computers.  In essence, you get the award-winning security of Net Nanny on all devices in your home—for one low price.

Customers may choose Net Nanny 7 for Windows, Net Nanny 3 for Mac, and/or Net Nanny for Android.

The Family Protection Pass is available in two options:

*    10-licenses for USD $79.99 *

*    15-licenses for USD $99.99 *

* This is an exclusive offer and can’t be combined with other offers.

And, with each Family Protection Pass, you’ll also get a free, one-year license of Net Nanny Social ($19.99 value).  With Net Nanny Social, parents can monitor a teen’s friends, pictures, and comments on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+ and LinkedIn.

In addition, users of Net Nanny Windows, Mac, and Android can use one web-based Net Nanny Admin console to control user settings and to view reports for all protected devices.  Management of three versions of Net Nanny is now integrated to make things simple for busy parents.

Existing customers that paid more than $79.99 for all existing licenses combined will get a free upgrade to the 10-license Pass (prorated for the time remaining on those current licenses).  Such Customers should call 1-800-485-4008 (Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mountain) for assistance with the free upgrade.

Existing customers that paid less than $79.99 for all existing licenses combined will get the value of the remainder of the license subscriptions as credit toward the purchase of the 10- or 15-license Pass subscription.  Such Customers may login to their Net Nanny account (My Account) to initiate the upgrade process.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus from Mobilicity

Contests By March 21, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , 2 Comments

Mobilicity Galaxy NexusI admit that I was petrified.  Seriously.  We all love our comfort zones, and I have established a reasonably efficient way of working on my phone, computer, tablets… ok.  Maybe not so efficient!  As an Apple user I haven’t been well-versed in Windows for eons and as a frequent traveler, I had never used a smaller phone carrier.   I knew that android had something to do with a robot, but could I get all of my favourite apps?  And as a dedicated Blackberry user, I grew pretty comfortable with a keyboard (though the carpal tunnel in my thumbs acts up quite a bit!)

When Mobilicity sent me a Galaxy Nexus, my kids squealed.  I had a hunch that they would be teaching me how to use it.. I immediately downloaded social networking apps and was shocked at the simplicity and extensiveness of the app store.  I gave myself a challenge: the Nexus would become the UrbanDaddies’ dedicated phone for tweets, instagram, pinterest, facebook and foursquare.  Let’s just say that the social media for UrbanDaddies has taken off, and I have no intention of giving up the service when my 6 month trial is done! The phone’s 1.2 GHz dual-core processor lets you switch quickly between apps, games and the web browser, and the phone is super-intuitive.

When I was able to wrestle the phone out of my sons’ and husband’s hands, I took videos, did awesome photography and surfed the net easily.

During the period of the test, I was in Africa, Belize, Sun Peaks, Whistler, Houston, Brussels, Frankfurt and Montreal.  Though I didn’t use the data plans overseas, the wireless connectivity  and texting were amazing and roaming throughout North America was easy.  I always knew what the roaming charges would be and the ‘My Wallet’ feature gave me complete control of my spending.  You deposit a certain amount of money for fees into your virtual ‘wallet’ and always know where you stand.

Price-wise, it is incredible.  The $45 Unlimited Value rate plan with Mobilicity gives unlimited local talk, North American Text + Picture Messaging, Canada & US Long Distance, Global Text, unlimited Data, Caller ID, Voicemail, Call-Forwarding, Three-Way Calling and Call Waiting, and 30 minutes North American Voice Roaming while you are in unlimited zones (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Ottawa).  The wallet feature covers the other edges of the world!

The only drawback?  Now we need to hire a programmer to convert the UrbanMommies iPhone app into android!

Disclosure: Mobilicity sent UrbanMommies a Galaxy Nexus phone and provided 6 months of service.  As always, our opinions are our own.
