For a surprise Father’s Day gift, along with a late birthday present, we surprised Brett with a new smart phone from Walmart Family Mobile.

In his job as a real estate investor, it’s important for him to stay connected to his email. I was concerned about getting the best wireless plan for our budget.

By using the unlimited plan from Walmart Family Mobile, we were able to try out a smart phone and wireless plan without breaking the bank.

Getting started was a snap – just check out my Google + album for all the details.

Brett works from home, and by forwarding his work number to his new MyTouch phone, he’s able to quickly decide if he’s able to take the call, or let it go to voice mail.

Turning down the ringer means that his work calls don’t disturb the baby during a much needed nap.

While we’re spending time at the pool, he’s able to check his email and set up real estate appointments, in between teaching the children how to swim.


At the gym, he can bring his phone along to access Pandora or Spotify to enjoy tunes while working out.

I had him take a look at his cell phone budget before and after signing up with Walmart Family Mobile.

Using the online account management panel is simple. You can see data plan usage, minutes and more. (This would be great to monitor a teen’s web usage!)

Before we gifted him with the MyTouch phone and the Walmart Family Mobile plan, he was using a Tracfone on a pre-paid account. He was spending around $50 per month, with no Web access.

With the Walmart Family Mobile plan, we’re saving money while adding options! $40 per month gets us the lowest price rate plan with unlimited talk and text along with 1G of web access — perfect for our family lifestyle and budgets!

Brett prefers a simple phone, but there are loads of options with the Walmart Family Mobile Plan, even a Samsung Galaxy like I use!
