The Walmart Family Mobile Plan and Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G have joined together to provide a cool phone, fun built-in applications and money-saving options in the best wireless plan. My husband, teenie bopper, and I all use cell phones and enjoy them a great deal. We all need unlimited talk, text and data plans to do the things we do on a regular basis. As you can imagine, this can be quite costly. So, I am in the market for the best wireless plan for our family. Recently during a trip to our local Walmart store I came across a display for a cheap wireless plan with the Walmart Family Mobile phone service that grabbed my attention.
This sign indicated that the Walmart Family Mobile program had two different plans available. The first was a $29.88 per month plan that gave unlimited talk and texts. The second plan was a $39.88 per month plan that provided unlimited talk, text, and web service. The plan we are using now costs $60.00 per month for unlimited talk, text, and web service. Obviously this payment plan stopped me in my tracks and made me want to investigate further. I went to the electronics department and looked at the display rack for the Walmart Family Mobile phones and plans. I wanted to see if this plan was better than my current plan. As a responsible wife and mother, of course I want the best wireless plan for my family.
The display rack made it seem pretty simple, there were only four steps to go from looking at a great new phone and saving money on a phone plan:
- Choose a plan
- Choose a phone or bring your own
- Take a starter pack
- Pay at the register and activate at home
Sounds easy right? I decided to try it out with my teenie bopper first because she is pickier and more demanding than my husband and I. If the Walmart Family Mobile plan can make her happy, the rest of us will be fine. The first step in finding the best wireless plan for my family meant picking out a phone. There were three different phones in stock and available at my Walmart store. The first was the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit that was selling for 99.98. It seemed to be a good phone with a camera and good apps pre-loaded. The specs on the phone were pretty impressive, check them out:
- 5 mp camera
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 1 GB internal memory, 4 GB ROM
- Resolution 800 x 480
- Display 3.8″
- Battery talk time up to 9 hours
- Standby time up to 240 hours
The next phone on the shelves was the One Touch Fierce which was selling for $149.88. This was another Android phone that had a good camera, built-in apps, and nice features. I admit, the name was catchy also. When I looked at the box I saw the phone had some nice specs including:
- Vivid 4.5″ color display
- VGA camera, multimedia games, screen saver and wallpaper
- Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
- Battery talk time up to 8 h
- Standby time up to 450 h
The final phone available at my local Walmart store was the LG Optimus L9 which also had a camera and some really great features. It retailed for $199.88. It was designed for power users.
- Android 4.0
- 5 megapixel camera with 18 full HD video capture
- 4 GB internal storage
- 7 hours talk time
- 336 hours standby time
The features of the various phones were very similar. One of the big differences was screen size. A larger screen size means a bigger phone. I looked at all the phones on the display, picked them up, touched them, and tried to determine which one my teenie bopper would like best. I decided to go with the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit. It had all the great features I wanted in an Android phone and the size of the phone itself was nice. It was big enough to see things clearly, but small enough to fit into my teenie boppers hands, purses and backpacks with ease. I also liked the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit because it had everything I thought my teenie bopper would enjoy in a phone and at only $99.88 it was a great price. So I did what the sign told me to do. I grabbed the box containing the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, I picked up the Starter Kit package that contained the SIM card I needed to work the phone and went to the cashier to make the purchase. I was confident this would be the best wireless plan for our family.
I am giving my teenie bopper the phone as a gift so I decided to crochet a phone case for her to make it easier for her to carry it around. This green phone case is meant to be worn messenger style. In conclusion, the Walmart Family Mobile Plan and Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G have joined together to provide a cool phone, fun built-in applications, and money-saving options in the best wireless plan. I am looking forward to seeing my teenie bopper’s face when she gets the phone!
