There comes a time in all our lives when we need to decide about wireless plans for our kids. Scary thought, huh? I am not too keen on the idea of my children wielding an expensive phone, with a matching plan to boot; they can’t even take care of their toys or clean their room without constant reminder. That’s when I started looking around for the lowest priced unlimited plans, and found Walmart Family Mobile.
Currently my littlest one doesn’t really need any sort of wireless plan, but her older sister, who is 8, going on 16, does. Not to sit and chit chat with her school friends, but as a portable device to connect with her dad. She’s only with us every other weekend, and half of the time during summer, so we don’t get to see her or hear from her as often as we’d like. Her having her own phone (and sharing it with her sister on weekends) let’s her have some of that freedom we’re so reluctant to give. Stop growing up!
These years are so important to connect with each other, and since he can’t be with her all the time, having a device to connect them is really great!
She can also use the unlimited data plan to look up information for her school projects, watch Rainbow Loom tutorial videos and listen to music. She wants to be a singer when she grows up, so she’s really into music. And with the unlimited talk and text, she can keep up with us, her mom, and have a way of communication when she heads to grandmas for the day. Plus I am often very hesitant to give up my phone (we’re attached at the hip) so it’s great that she can play games on her own Nokia Lumia.
The Nokia Lumia is a great little Windows Phone, very quick and responsive, plus it’s so user friendly that even a 2 year old can figure it out! And it’s got all kinds of fun games that the girls love to play together (taking turns is a learning curve in our home…)
Walmart Family Mobile is a great option for those looking for a great phone, without the contracts and high bills, making it the perfect phone for the girls. I love that I can easily cancel the service if I need to, and each month it’s only $29.88 for UNLIMITED talk, text and if you want to add web service, it’s just $10 more! And you can add up to 5 lines on each account!
Starting the service was really easy, and required no other personal information that a driver’s license or ID. You can set up your phone at home, or have them do it in the store for you, like I did!
And paying is so easy! The bills are sent to you via text, and you can easily pay online or in the store. It’s really an ideal and affordable way to use a wireless plan.
She’s so excited to be a “big girl” and have her own phone to call daddy at work! Isn’t she so cute? Ha!
