Christmas Brought Communication :: Unlimited Plan for Papa!

Christmas Brought Communication :: Unlimited Plan for Papa!

Remember last month I mentioned how my Dad had no cell phone, but I was secretly planning on gifting him a smartphone?!

Well, Christmas came and the cell phone gift was a hit! Papa’s first smartphone! To say he was shocked is a bit of an understatement. I’m so glad Grandma was able to keep the secret. We never told our toddler as she would have told him long ago. 🙂

No more missed opportunities to give him a quick call or send him a photo text of the girls. He can text me now and he’ll never miss an email or update. His plan is awesome because its a contract without a contract. As I mentioned before, my Dad is retired so a long term cell phone contract isn’t something he is interested in. He has the old school mentality when it comes to being able to phone someone…call my house and leave a message.


After the the anticipation of Santa’s arrival was over, and wrapping paper was cleaned up I took to the Walmart Family Mobile site to get Dad’s phone activated. Activation was a cinch and I had the phone dialing out calls in a matter of minutes! I quickly showed him how to easily go online and manage his account anytime by visiting

The Concord Smartphone is very user friendly so my Dad was navigating around on it pretty well by the end of the day. He’s already called me a couple of times since being back to Rhode Island too so that is a good sign.

Remember, 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

Why we love this plan for Dad:

  • Billing is 16-18 days after activation {which you can do online} via text message
  • 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.

We are all very excited to be able to keep in touch with Papa now. I’m not too sure that he is excited that Grandma can easily phone him, but he was quick to ask her to help him navigate around the smartphone since she has become a pro at her own smartphone.

Lets give a hand for Grandparents who are on board with technology!
