As a mom with a busy schedule, it is important to stay in touch. I want my kids and whoever is caring for them to know that I am available at all times. Much different from my childhood but smartphones are a necessity in this day and age. Being a blogger and social media influencer, I will admit that I am glued to my phone for emails, conference calls, taking photos, and of course social media. My phone is also our GPS and local way-finder. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to look up addresses on-the-go or get driving directions. It is a lifesaver.
My one gripe with mobile devices is finding the right carrier and plan. Phones are basically a utility and it can feel like carriers have our hands tied. My eyes glaze over when I hear about usage and data, overages, plans and it seems like the only way to avoid crazy charges is to agree to a complicated and expensive contract. In our family, we need all the data we can get because Jason and I pretty much use our phones for basically everything work related.
One company that is making the whole process easier for me is AT&T PREPAID, which gives me a variety of options that work for our needs. At first I was confused by the “Pre-Paid” aspect that I typically associate with a temporary phone that wouldn’t have any of the features or benefits you would get with traditional wireless service. But boy was I wrong! AT&T PREPAID gives me great monthly plan options with no annual contract and we can change our plan anytime!
They offer prepaid plans for different budgets that include data, unlimited talk, text AND they offer multi-line discounts so we can add phones. I like to have an extra home/mobile phone available in a pinch for babysitters or if mine or Jason’s phone is broken or lost. AT&T also offers a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) option, which is compatible with most devices so you can activate the device you already own! AT&T PREPAID is also on a great data network, reaching over 300 million people in North America and they have iPhones, Samsung and LG at affordable prices.
More than anything, it is important for me to make smart financial decisions for my family. I like the choices that AT&T PREPAID offers me and the flexibility, but most of all I like being financially responsible and keeping costs down so we can save money. It’s nice to know that if our needs change from month to month, we can change plans anytime we want!
