My motivation to try an affordable cell phone service plan was to finally join the rest of the world and benefit from the use of a smartphone. I admit that we were hesitant on joining the masses. We simply didn't feel that we needed it. Cost was also a major factor. We have friends and family members paying anywhere from $120 to $300 per month for service. When presented with the option of a cheap wireless plan through Walmart Family Mobile I couldn't sign up fast enough! I am glad that I did and will be continuing service. The benefits of having a smartphone with reliable service at the lowest price rate plan made it a no-brainer.
In the time that I had been testing our my phone and service through Walmart Family Mobile my life had an unusual amount of ups and downs. My phone was with me every step of the way. I would not have managed as well without my smartphone. After having one for over a month - I now see how so many people that I know feel that they NEED one. From here on I cannot go back to basic talk and text! I still wouldn't pay as much as many that I know are paying! I'll take the money that I would save and spend it on something more tangible!
One of my "UP" moments....
During a Social Media Conference (Social Fresh West) my phone kept me connected! Thanks to the Bizzabo app I made hundreds of connections via linkedin, I was able to follow conference happenings, and keep in touch with my new friends!
One of my "DOWN" moments...
My dear Uncle passed away. We drove to the Bay Area to pay our respects. The navigator app that we used on the drive up was super helpful and truly reduced my stress level as far as getting there. It may seem like a small thing to some, but having one less thing to worry about was a comfort.
The cell phone that I purchased with the Walmart Family Mobile service has proven to be more beneficial to me in more ways than I expected. Peace of mind has been priceless. The savings over other plans is something that I have been sharing with my friends and family members.
The myTouch and Walmart Family Mobile unlimited, no contract plan makes it easy to expand my family plan. Getting connected is simple and should our needs change we are not stuck in a contract. The service has been reliable and the savings on our monthly cell phone budget can be put away for unexpected expenses.
Our son isn't at an age when he needs a cell phone yet but it's good to know that limits and controls can help kids and parents - especially during back to school season. Family Mobile has control features to manage the activity of users on the account. You can use Family Controls to assign limits to the minutes and messages allowed by the lines on your account, to manage allowed numbers, and to limit usage at certain times of day. Paying our monthly bill and monitoring our usage is a snap with myfamilymobile.com. Overall, we are pleased with the online management and information.
Check out Walmart for your family cell phone needs. You too can have unlimited talk, text, and data for less than $40 a month! For more on my personal shopping experience please visit my G+ album.
