I’ve been using Walmart’s cheapest wireless plans for about a year now. Each of my kids has a phone and use it to stay connected to me and their dad, as well as to organize their school year.
My oldest will start this school year with the Alcatel One Touch Evolove with unlimited talk, text and web for $34.88. It was the cheapest option for us versus adding him to our current plan.
One of the best features is the calendar.
He uses it to stay on track with assignments, after school practice and other important dates.
With school starting in just a few weeks, all of the children’s calendars are filling up with important dates.
An important date you may want to jot down is October 31, 2015. That’s the day the Walmart Family Mobile prices will change on this phone and their unlimited plan.
Right now, the Alcatel is on rollback at for $29.88 — down from $79.88. Unlimited talk, text and web have also been discounted from $39.88 to $34.88 through October 31, 2015.
That’s a great price for a mobile phone, plus the good thing about these phones is they require no contract and no credit check. If I feel like my kids are not using their phone for its intended purpose, I can simply cancel their service.
So far, we haven’t had any issues. If anything, it’s made staying in contact with the kids easier and it’s made organizing their school year simpler.
We get to stay in touch with our kids, they get a cell phone and we don’t bust the budget doing it.
