As a family on-the-go, having reliable phone service is important to us and the opportunity to test out Walmart Family Mobile came at the perfect time. Going from an Apple device to an Android phone, there was definitely a learning curve. A few of the features of the new phone that I loved were Swype, accessibility to apps, and the main format of the phone & background. The service is simple to set up as I explained in my last post. Walmart Family Mobile offers great services that give you the ability to customize for your needs. Managing your phone account can also be done simply from home online. Unlimited plans means you get the lowest price rate plan for cell phone service with great features.
With a thirteen-year-old niece, I opted to give her the phone to utilize for a few weeks in the month of July. She was excited to try out a smart phone and found her favorite feature to be the ability to use Instagram & unlimited texting with friends. Throughout this month, this phone has traveled to Soldier Field, Northerly Island, the Allstate Arena and throughout the Chicagoland area. Dependent upon the weather and the area, I found the service and accessibility to vary. Many times, I had success with the usability of the phone – be it looking up a website, uploading photos to Instagram or downloading applications. Making phone calls & texts rarely had problems and never experienced dropped calls. My niece was able to connect with friends & family when need be and having a phone with internet capabilities was definitely a bonus.
Paying my bill has been a breeze. Online statements that are just $40 per month means that I had more savings in my pocket for similar features. I like the reliability that there are no hidden fees and that as a family, we know what to expect when it comes to our budget. Looking ahead, with August just around the corner, having a phone that connects busy kids in our family means that less time is wasted driving and waiting and more time is spent hanging out together and using our time valuably.
Using the Walmart Family Mobile plan throughout this month means my phone has taken pictures of 98 degrees, NKOTB, Boyz II Men, Bon Jovi, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber and captured family life. I have been able to text friends or call family without worry about going over our limit and despite spotty service occasionally, I believe that over time with the creation of more towers and more accessibility, customers will continue to grow in their connection with this plan because of the price and value. #FamilyMobileSaves #cbias
