This year marks my son’s 10th year on this Earth and he is so into technology that it hurts. He loves to learn online, he loves to play games like Minecraft and he loves to watch game-play videos on YouTube. We keep pretty strict rules about his internet use and what he can look at, so he has always used the desktop PC. However, as he gets older, leaves home more and possibly, gets left at home alone, we decided that it was time to give him a trial on a phone and the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan is perfect!
With our extra tax money and a Walmart Family Mobile plan in mind, we headed out to our local Walmart to get more information. We found all of the phones and plans in the electronics section. We were immediately drawn to the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime because my husband and I are both Samsung fans. We were excited to see that the phone was on rollback from $99.88 to $89.88!
The Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan includes unlimited talk, text, data (up to 10GB) and a FREE movie on VUDU (a $7 value) for only $49.88 per month! We can’t wait to check out the VUDU movies on our Roku!
Activating the phone and plan was super simple. You can do it online or, like I did, you can call on the phone. It only takes a couple of minutes to set it up.
Once our Samsung Galaxy Core Prime was activated, I set it up for our son. I downloaded a wallpaper that I thought he would love, added some contacts like my husband, myself and his grandparents and I also downloaded a couple of apps that I knew he would want.
We have set a few ground rules for our son with his new phone.
- He may not answer phone numbers that he does not know.
- He cannot watch YouTube videos without our permission/supervision.
- He cannot download any apps without getting our permission first.
- He must leave his phone with us at night. He cannot have it in his room.
Of course, as he gets older and matures, he will be allowed to use it more freely. However, for now, we prefer to supervise him on this trial run and expect him to show appropriate behavior.
We know that with the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan, we are getting the best value with our tax dollars this year! How could you not like having unlimited talk, text and data (up to 10GB) with 4G LTE coverage and a FREE movie on VUDU (a $7 value) for only $49.88 per month!
