Unlimited Data = Unlimited Summer Fun

My mom was a work at home mom before being a work at home mom was a thing. My parents owned a towing business and she was at home to answer the calls and dispatch the drivers to the stranded drivers. She could not leave the house. If she needed to go grocery shopping she had to make sure my dad could be home to answer the phone and send out one of his employees.

With the invention of the cell phone gave my family a little more freedom. I remember my parents going to our softball games with a giant case that held a cell phone. Sometimes my mom would even bring it to the grocery store and she would have to stop in the middle of the aisle to answer the call and send someone out.

Fast forward about 20 years and I am now a work at home mom. But  I have a lot more freedom than than my mom had. She never had data on her phone and she probably had a limitation on the amount of minutes she could talk on her cell phone. She didn’t even have the ability to text people!

 

I love that I can set my own hours and I can spend time hanging out with my kids. My days are flexible so I can spend a few hours getting pedicures or lunch with my daughter. We can head to an amusement park or play in the creek, or we can go on road trips and stream music while we hang out at the park. But I still need to be available to answer emails, be on social media and more. All that requires lots of data on my cell phone.

In the past, I have had cell phone plans with very limited data. Once I passed my limit, they started to charge me crazy overage fees. So I would be afraid to leave my house and use my data. I have switched to a new plan! The $49.88 PLUS Plan from Walmart Family Mobile, powered by T-Mobile gives me Unlimited Talk, Text & Data Plan which Includes up to 15 GB of 4G LTE† data, then 2G*

The plan is super easy – there’s no contract, and you have clear monthly service plan prices.

I needed a new phone so I picked up a LG L59 Grace. It’s just $99. The screen is large so I can easily read everything I need to see, it’s light weight and very thin. (All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to this page or your local Walmart for current pricing.)

It’s easy! Head to Walmart and pick a phone. Then pick a plan, activate and go.

If you love your phone – you can keep it! Just switch out the SIM card and you can take advantage of this great deal from Walmart Family Mobile.

This plan not only helps me to go out and do fun things with my kids on summer vacation, but it saves me money. I don’t have to pay an activation fee, I don’t pay any late charges, and I get more data with coverage on T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G LTE† network than my previous plan. Walmart plans are the best because there is no contract – start and stop at anytime.

Another bonus of this plan is that you will receive a free VUDU◊ movie rental credit valued at $7.00 each time you renew your service. Summer vacation means late nights hanging out watching movies and this freebie is an awesome perk!

My kids understand what an awesome job I have and they know that sometimes I will have to stop and take a call, send an email, or post something on Instagram. With my $49.88 PLUS Plan from Walmart Family Mobile, powered by T-Mobile, I don’t have to worry about going over and having to pay some crazy overage fee with my plan. Try it out today and stop worrying about your cell phone plan and enjoy your summer vacation!

This sounds like a great option and I really like that you don’t have a contract. I will have to look into this for the family.

We have an unlimited data plan and it’s NICE not having to worry!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle July 17, 2017 at 9:50 am

I love this! With three kids and the fact that I’m an on the go blogger, I NEED unlimited data in the worst way. It’s amazing how fast you can blow through it.

Colleen Lanin July 17, 2017 at 9:55 am

Unlimited data is the best! When unlimited data plans came out, I was over the moon. Unfortunately, a lot of companies make you pay out the nose for it. I have to check this out.

Leave it to Walmart to have the best deals on cell phones and on the data plans. I have a carrier already but I am paying a lot more, i will look into the switch details.

Unlimited data can sure make summer season less stressful. I love having a plan with unlimited data options, I remember when I was first able to take advantage of such plan, it was brilliant! Glad you shared this plan option for others to take full advantage of it!

Not having to worry about going over the data limit sounds super nice. The overage fees can be pretty crazy!

Kelly Hutchinson July 17, 2017 at 6:14 pm

Unlimited date is something we have to have for our family. I love how affordable the Walmart Family Plan is.

Meagan July 17, 2017 at 7:44 pm

I can’t imagine life without unlimited data. I am on my phone too much for work to use limited data.

AnnMarie John July 18, 2017 at 2:13 am

That’s so important when you work at home. Staying connected wherever you are is definitely a must especially since the internet is a huge part of where we get our jobs from. This is awesome!

Wow! That sounds like an amazing plan! It’s great to have unlimited data especially when traveling. This is really amazing!

I used to have an LG phone before and it was really great. It took a lot of beating but still held up very well. I love that you can get an LG from Walmart now. The no contract deal is fantastic.

We just went over on our data today as a matter of fact. (It ended up costing us an extra 15 bucks!) I’ve tried to get the hubs to switch but he’s stuck in his ways.

Crystal July 18, 2017 at 5:01 pm

It certainly has been easier to work from home, and work from anywhere! I need to go chat with Walmart about unlimited data. I hate those overage charges.

Pam July 18, 2017 at 8:05 pm

Unlimited data sound sgreat. I use a lot of data on GPS routing when I travel.
