My son loves his new Samsung Galaxy Exhibit from Walmart Family Mobile! #Shop

    My husband and I have been considering getting a smartphone for our 10 year-old son for a while now.  Mainly it is because he is on the Junior Varsity basketball team and has practices and games many times per week.  In addition to his basketball schedule, he has recently been accepted into the Drama Club at school.  A few times, he had to go to the main office to call us to pick him up later due to practices lasting longer than usual.  Cheap wireless plans would be our only option in order to stay within our family’s budget.

Checking out the wide selection of smartphones that Walmart Family Mobile has to offer. #Shop

    We decided that he really needs his own phone to be able to call us whenever he needs to.  Unfortunately, many of the wireless plans that we have seen are too expensive so we set out to find the lowest priced unlimited plans.  Having unlimited talk text and data/web was definitely important because we did not want to get slammed with any unexpected charges at the end of the billing cycle because of our son going over his plan minutes, texts, or data.

The smartphones were flying off the shelf at Walmart! #Shop

    Walmart Family Mobile was the best choice for our son because they offer  unlimited talk, text and web for just $39.88 per month!  Hubby and I just couldn’t believe that cheap wireless plans like this one even existed.  Not only are we going to save money, but this plan will allow us to stay connected with our son at all times.

So many smartphones, so little time! #Shop

    The Walmart Family Mobile wireless plan allowed us to take advantage of a great deal and stretch our tax refund dollars to get a great smartphone for our son under $100.  We chose the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit because it had a lot of the features that we were looking for including a 5 MP camera with LED flash and a touchscreen.  It really is very modern and I couldn’t think of a better purchase to make with my tax money this year.

As you can see, we couldn’t separate our son from his new smartphone from Walmart Family Mobile! #Shop

    If you are in the market for a smartphone for your tween, pre-teen, or teenager, Walmart Family Mobile has the best plans that I have seen.  They have a wonderful variety of smartphones for you to choose from, especially if you are on a budget and don’t want to get bogged down with more expensive phones and wireless plans.

Walmart Family Mobile has a large selection of smartphones under $100 each! #Shop

    I will rest easier knowing that my son will be able to stay in touch with his father and I easily.  Make sure you check out Walmart Family Mobile and help your family stay in touch without breaking the bank!

  1. We have Verizon Wireless and we got in with them when they first got the iPhone and were offering unlimited data plans – so we’re not leaving them ever 🙂

  2. This sounds great and a great price though i really do not like having plans like this i like pay as you go otherwise i would be forever on the phone lol..our phones have free unlimited calls and texts to phones on the same network so we stick to that network and save alot of money.

  3. What a great price and I can understand why you need to get a phone for your son, what with his schedule. I wonder if my friends know about this plan from Walmart-they could definitely use the cost savings! As for me-I am impatiently awaiting my plan to expire so I can go pre paid–I barely if ever use my phone!

  4. Wow – your son is a busy kid! The Walmart Family Mobile plans sound awesome for families wishing to add a line for their children.

  5. these plans are amazingly good for a family budget
    your son looks so happy to be getting his phone! love it!
    he is a busy little man! sounds busier than me!

  6. Richard Hicks says

    I do not have a smart phone either. They have been too expensive for me but it looks like WalMart has some pretty good plans priced more reasonably!

  7. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    It really is a pretty unbeatable price for what it offers. Great way to add kids with new cell phones.

  8. I know a lot of people that have Walmart Family Mobile and love it! I think it’s a great deal and I love that you can get a new smart phone!

  9. Lawna Young says

    My son is also ten. After reading this review I may have to look into this. Sounds like a great plan and a great deal.

  10. I have heard that these are fantastic prices, and perfect for the teens. I’m happy to read about it again because I meant to check it out before and then forgot (that’s what happens when I don’t bookmark things). Bookmarking it now!

  11. JadeLouise Designs says

    The family Mobile plan is such a great choice when you have kids that are in need of cell phones. I would never get a full contract phone for my kids, they cost too much and I hate the contract. But I love the freedom of the Walmart family mobile plan that i can customize it for my kids usage.

  12. Great investment for the kiddo! Smart phones have become so integral, even for children. I know my mom would have loved to give me a cell phone when I was younger.. she could track me down 24-7. 🙂

  13. newyorkchica says

    Wow what an awesome deal! I may have to upgrade my phone too. Looks like your son has a much better phone than I do!

  14. It’s great that they offer such a good price. Smart phone plans can get expensive fast.

  15. We have just started to talk about gettnig a phone for our son, so lots of great info. We have Verizon and will probably just add him since we have unlimited everything 🙂

  16. This is such a great plan – I can imagine it being fantastic for people who need to get phones for kids :)x.

  17. TouristMeetsTraveler says

    What a great plan. I am a Canadian and US cell phones are so much more reasonable. I would so get this for my daughter.

  18. Ashley Wintters says

    We use straight talk & I thought their plans were good but this sounds better! Thanks for the info!

  19. That sounds like a good plan, especially for kids! I’m sure your son will take good care of it!

  20. Amanda Smith says

    My son has been DYING for a phone. Seriously. He said he is dying for one. We will see! 🙂 This is def. a place to keep in mind!

  21. Walmart really seems to be the place to go to get a smart phone with a reasonable plan for families. I am glad they have affordable plans because it is important to connect with your children during the day. I remember years ago getting my son a cell phone because he was playing after school sports and I never knew when to pick him up…and the pay phones were always out of order.

  22. We tried Walmart a long time ago for phones for my son. Then, we all got on my husbands A good program!

  23. Wow, that sounds like a great deal. Our 9yo will be getting her own phone in the fall because she’ll be at a different school than her brothers. Will have to check this deal out!

  24. Melanie Roberts says

    What a great way to stretch your Tax Refund.. you will love it.. we have this plan since May and have nothing but Happy time with it.. our wallet is giggling, too.. we just love it…

  25. Perfect idea – Walmart sure has got it thinking there – cool deals to check out!

  26. TheNewClassy says

    My husband is on the Family Mobile plan and he so loves it. The rest of us will most likely be switching over after we get out of our contract.

  27. Courtney Pies says

    I definitely agree with getting your son a cell phone since he’s in after school activities. That’s a great price for unlimited everything!

  28. Wow, now you know they are growing up with you HAVE to get them a smartphone. There’s no way around it. Glad you found a plan that fits your budget and keeps your son in the “IN” crowd LOL.

  29. Sounds like the perfect plan for your son. I love how affordable their smart phones are. #client

  30. Onica {MommyFactor} says

    I think it’s time more kids have a cellphone so parents can keep in contact with them. But some plans can be pricy. Nice to know Walmart has options for families

  31. I’ve heard about the plan but have not taken advantage of it… Will visit my local branch and check it out.
