Walmart Family Mobile – Best Wireless Plan – A Reward for Teenie Bopper


It is sensational to be able to reward your children for accomplishing great things. My teenie bopper is graduating from high school this year and going off to college. She has insisted that she is not going to  a local school, but wants to go out-of-town to a university. Last month, I wrote an article about how I was looking for a good cell phone plan for her to take off to college with her. I wrote about the best wireless plan I found at my local Walmart store.  Today she finally got the phone.

This is the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit with the 5mp camera and some great pre-loaded software. Walmart Family Mobile #SoFab


I had been waiting for just the right occasion to give her the phone. Today was the day! She had been doing so many wonderful things, I did not think I could make her wait any longer. What wonderful things had she been doing you ask? I will tell you, she was getting accepted to colleges and universities. Over the past few weeks she received acceptances to the following:

  • Spelman College
  • Howard University
  • Xavier University
  • Clark Atlanta University


Of course my husband and I are so very proud of her. We decided not to wait any longer but to hand her the phone after she stopped celebrating her latest acceptance today.




When we handed her the phone she was so excited. After all, what teenaged girl would not want a new cell phone. The phone was so inexpensive at only $99.98. Because she is a smart girl, she immediately looked at the phone’s features and specs.   The specs really are quite impressive, check them out:

  • 5 mp camera
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • GB internal memory, 4 GB ROM
  • Resolution 800 x 480
  • Display 3.8″
  • Battery talk time up to 9  hours

She made me laugh when she started taking all her selfies (aka self portrait photos). You can tell she is young because she immediately started taking photos. She did not need time to redo her hair, put on makeup or change clothes. Perhaps one of the privileges of youth is that you always look camera ready!


Next she started downloading 101 apps on the phone. She used the Play Store app on the phone and had no problem getting all the cool apps she and her friends seem unable to live without.  She downloaded:

  • Snapchat
  • Skype
  • Tumblr
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • Kik
  • Vine
  • Pinterest
  • And a bunch more with amazing  speed


I showed her the messenger style case I made for the phone and she seemed to really like it which made me very happy. The next thing I knew she was on the phone texting her friends. She of course had to let everyone know about her latest college acceptance and her new phone.  Teenie bopper was happy to have a new phone and my husband and I were happy to have given her the best wireless plan. We decided to go with the $39.88 per month unlimited talk, text and web plan. We thought this plan would be good because although she doesn’t call us often now, I know she is going to want us to hear her voice on the phone as she begs for money from college.




I checked the coverage maps for the schools where she was  applying before I bought the phone so I know whether she is in Atlanta, Washington, D.C. or New Orleans, she will have good coverage talking, texting or surfing. Those things are important features and part of what makes this plan from Walmart Family Mobile the  best wireless plan for us to help prepare our teenie bopper for college.





While I am delighted that my teenie bopper got accepted to her first and second choices for college. I am a little nervous about sending my baby off in the world on her own. Having reliable phone service  as part of the Walmart Family Mobile network and a phone made by a quality company like Samsung  and the very affordable phone plan do make me feel a little better about it all. I am so very happy to be able to give my teenie bopper this gift to celebrate the wonderful things she is accomplishing. This is a great step in the journey to letting her go off to school in the fall. It is one of the small steps I need to take along the way.

In conclusion, it is sensational to be able to reward your children for accomplishing great things. So, the question for you this sensational day is, what is the best reward you have ever given one of your children?
