Mobile phone safety features 'coming to Motorola soon'
7 April 2010 — 12:00 PM
Selling an old mobile phone may soon be an option worth considering for parents looking to keep their child's safety at the top of their agenda.
A new partnership announced by Motorola, set to be launched in Europe later this year, will help parents to manage their children's approved number list and monitor how the handset is used through an "easy-to-use" portal website.
Silje Vallestad, mother-of-three and founder and chief executive officer of Bipper Communications, stated she had a wish to create a web-based interface where it was possible to make the settings for her child's mobile phone.
"This vision led to the creation of Bipper Communication and Motorolas iSIM platform is the key to realising our vision," she said.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "Parents want to ensure the safety of their children at all times. Trading in an old mobile phone for cash is an ideal way to afford a secure handset for your child and put your mind at ease."
She added that Motorola's long-term position in delivering mobile services worldwide means she has complete confidence in their ability to deliver the service.
Recent research from Ovum found that around eight million mobiles were recycled in the UK last year - double the number that was recycled two years ago.
