Right on the heels of its Parental Controls announcement, Alltel's tackling another side of the love-hate relationship parents share with their kids' cellphones with "Axcess Family Finder." As the name implies, Family Finder allows the parental units to pop up interactive maps online (either through a PC or their own phone) to determine where their children are and can also be configured to keep track of areas that kids frequent most. The whole setup costs $9.99 per month per child when used with a compatible handset -- and yes, Alltel is very specific about the "per child" part here, so we suspect you can't go strapping a Samsung Wafer to your dog.
