Deana Mitchell featured Gabb Wireless on VOA on January 7, 2020 with the following story:

Alani Parker, a young mother of two girls, found out that one of her daughters was being inappropriately targeted by an adult man on a social media platform designed for kids. Because of this experience, Alani didn’t want her kids to own their own smartphones, but she still wanted to be able to stay in touch with them throughout the day. That’s when she found Gabb Wireless—a cellular network created just for kids. Their phone, the Gabb Z2, looks just like a smartphone, but doesn’t provide access to the internet. Kids can make phone calls, send texts, and use several other kid-friendly apps like a calendar, calculator, camera, and a clock.

Gabb founder, Stephen Dalby, said, “The average high school student is coming home [from school] with almost 5 hours of screen time consumption. [Gabb Wireless] has created devices that really are advocates for living life outside of the screen.”

Alani Parker’s daughters were so excited to get their Gabb Phones, but her daughters friends did not feel the same. When Leila (13) told some of her friends about her new phone, they responded, “Wow, that’s just really basic. Your mom must be mean!” Leila, however, knew that her mom got her a Gabb Phone to protect her.

Gabb has made it possible for Alani to stay connected with her kids while unplugging them from outside distractions and threats.

    Do you carry this type of non- internet phone for seniors who aren't internet savvy and don't want the possibility of pushing the wrong button...?

  • Gabb Wireless on Mar 21, 2022 11:35 AM

    Thanks for the question, Kathy. We don't have a phone specific to seniors--however, both of our devices are extremely user-friendly.

    Can I port over the same phone number I currently have?

  • Kelly on Apr 18, 2022 06:21 PM

    Can it use GPS to get places?

  • Gabb Wireless on Apr 20, 2022 09:47 AM

    Hi Judie! You can port another number that you had. You can do this by emailing

  • Gabb Wireless on Apr 20, 2022 09:55 AM

    Hi Kelly. The GPS tracking works with the phone to keep track of the child it belongs to, we do not currently have GPS maps on the phones but your feedback has been sent to our product team. Thank you for the support!

    Beautiful! This is what kids need to get back on track! Kids shouldn’t have all these internet gadgets , the important reason for a phone is to keep in touch with your family or in case of emergency you have help . We are destroying our own kids with all the internet freedom giving them. How Doyou order this?

  • Gabb Wireless on May 10, 2022 11:04 AM
