Making sure that my daughter has a new phone that works well is a priority for me. Heading off to middle school is a milestone of independence that will take for some adjusting for me. However, if she has a phone, it will give the me the comfort of knowing that we can be connected. I wanted the best wireless that was also a cheap wireless plan or should I say one that wouldn’t break the bank. This, to me, is the perfect gift for back to school.
With just a few short weeks before school starts, we headed to Walmart to get a phone for school. My oldest is now of an age where having a phone can help for safety and the ability to get in touch when plans after school change.
When we got to the the Electronics department, we found the Walmart Family Mobile display on the header or end cap of the aisle.
We purchased the WFM Alcatel One Touch Fierce ($99.88) – great smartphone under $100 (On Rollback from $129.88). The was the perfect price for this present and a perfect time of year for a rollback on a needed phone. Don’t forget the starter kit for only $25 so you will be ready to set up service right away. And the present for me was that it was only going to be $34.88/month for Unlimited Talk, Text, and Web!
My current cell phone service is through AT & T and we are currently in a contract. I didn’t want to start a contract for my daughter but I wanted to see what an affordable new cell phone service would be able to offer. I didn’t want to put her on my plan until I had gone to Walmart and became savvy on the savings and what exactly it had to offer. Spending more money for cell phone service is not something I want to be doing right about now so I wanted to explore different options that are available out there. Having used Walmart Family Mobile in the past, I knew this was going to be the best choice for us.
The WFM Alcatel One Touch Fierce is going to help with after school activities because every day after school has a different plan and it can be challenging to keep track of it all. Between CCD, sports and friends, it is necessary for my middle schooler to be able to stay connected with me or my husband. This way, she has independence and we know where she is.
I love this plan because it is affordable and it enables parent and child to be in touch without the burden of an expensive contract. The calendar helps her remember her schedule and we will be able to text or call to stay in touch.
On the first day of middle school, her backpack will be packed, supplies will be inside and her WFM Alcatel One Touch Fierce will be charged and ready to go. I know it will be emotional for me and exciting for her. I will be at ease because I know that we will be connected at all times.
