How many people do you know that don’t have a cell phone. Better yet, don’t have a smart phone? I know one, my DAD!?!

My dad had a cell phone for a long time and before that a beeper. EEK! He could be reached anytime and anywhere. Now that he is retired, he could care less about being available on demand so he cut off the cell phone. Yep, no cell phone for Dad. He will be the first to tell you that if you want to reach him you can call the house phone or call my mom’s cell.

Now, he may think that is great, but I don’t. See, we live in Connecticut and he lives in Rhode Island. I am his only child and therefore my children are his only grandchildren. I take a least a bazillion photographs of them daily and always text them to my mom. You can imagine my frustration when I need to complete a different task to get the same photos and videos to him. I have to email them. And then, my Dad will call me and say, “hey, I haven’t seen any pictures in a while but your Mom showed me some on her phone.” And then I think to myself, “well you could see them too if you didn’t have to wait until you are in front of the computer at home.” **Roll my eyes** Annoying. I mean, it would be so much easier if I could shoot a quick text to all the grandparents at once rather than having to send them all a la cart.

So, today I went to Walmart to check out their family mobile plan. I figure a smart phone with this plan is the perfect gift for dear Dad this Christmas because there is no contract. If I get my Dad a cell phone and after a few months he decides that he wants “off the grid” he or I won’t be tied down paying a monthly bill for something no one is using. Perfect!

I walked right to the electronics department and was greeted by a wonderful sales associate who was able to answer all my questions. I grabbed the Concord Smartphone, which is on a Rollback price of only $49.88, a Starter Kit (SIM card and activation instructions) $25.00, and insurance for the phone $5.00. I mean, this is a deal! The Walmart Family Mobile plan, you truly get a great smartphone at a low cost with affordable, unlimited service without signing up for a contract.

There are two plans to choose from.

  1. $39.88/month unlimited talk, text, and web  OR
  2. $29.88/month unlimited talk and text

Billing is 16-18 days after activation {which you can do online} via text message and you can pay your bill online, in-store at customer service or by phone. You can also set up your bill to AutoPay  each month using a credit or debit card. Your first bill is prorated (you’ll only pay for the days of service you’ve already used) and will be due approximately 30 to 35 days from the day you activated. Your bill will include applicable taxes every month. You can also easily manage your account online.

Now, all I have to do is wrap it all up and wait for Christmas to come so Dad can open it up! Feeling excited! I’ll be back with a follow up post right after the Christmas holiday to tell you about Dad’s reaction. Fingers crossed its a happy holiday! 🙂

  1. Haha, I love that this is the perfect gift for your dad so he can still go “Off the grid” if he wants! I LOVE that this is a no-contract plan – it’s what I use myself. Like your dad, I want to be able to sever all ties with my phone if I need to. LOL!!
