History

On one particularly crazy day, we mixed up our schedule and dropped off our oldest son late for his Parkour lesson. He didn’t feel comfortable asking one of the people who worked there if he could use the phone, so he had to wait until we arrived to pick him up. At this point, we realized that we need to get him a phone to contact us.

After some research and testing of a few products, including the Gizmo by Verizon, I decided to just give him one of my old phones. I locked down the apps on the phone. Still, a BIG mistake. He was getting slammed with calls and text messages he did not want. There were calls about an inheritance from an uncle in Africa, and texts from an irate person wondering where their money was,

Despite my son's attempts to stop the calls, they continued. This was a huge problem for me. I wanted the ability to block *everyone* except my wife and I, and other friends and family. Only a limited group of people should be allowed to call my son.

After a few weeks of looking, I realized such a phone plan did not exist. So I decided to make one myself. Being in the tech world, I was able to come up with a system that would do exactly what I was looking for. I programmed my son a new SIM card where I could use code to control who could call or text him. I wanted it to be super easy for my wife and I to add people to this “whitelist” as well, so I made that possible through text messages.

Thus, Holler’d was born.
