When you can’t be with the people you love, technology helps you stay connected. Here is how we stay connected with family using technology.
This summer my daughters and I are having quite the adventure visiting family in Connecticut. From trips to the aquarium to stops at the sea shore, from ice cream sundae parties to cousin play dates, we have a packed summer bucket list. Unfortunately, Brandon (Daddy) is missing out on the girl fun.
We want to stay connected, so we are taking lots of pictures and videos to document our vacation.
My current phone plan is terrible for data usage since I am a part of a shared plan. My sisters and I are always calling each other out on who’s using up all the juice. I feel like I’ve not been able to share as much of our trip with Brandon. I had this great idea to get a second phone this summer that we would use specifically for data driven activities – like sending Daddy pictures of our daily adventures.
When you can’t be with family, technology helps you stay connected.
There are plenty of family plans to stay connected. For example, the $49.88 PLUS Plan from Walmart Family Mobile, powered by T-Mobile, is great. I can buy a second phone, along with a contract-free plan, and pay for the monthly service I need. There are no activation fees, no late charges, and for just $49.88, I have unlimited talk, text & data for a month, with coverage on T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G LTE† network. It’s Walmart’s best pricing for no contract wireless plans (which are so easy to start or switch).
Annabelle loves to take photos and gets pretty snap happy when she is excited. With the Walmart Family Plan and my LG Grace LTE, she can take as many pictures as she wants to send her Daddy. My regular phone plan charges us an extra fee every 1GB over our data plan, which is small when divided among my four family members. I’ve run up quite the bill on my behalf. With Walmart’s Family Plan, I have a larger data bucket of 15GB of 4G LTE† data that seems to give us endless opportunities. We can easily stay connected to Brandon when we are out and about.
On one of our latest adventures to a hidden coastal town in Connecticut, Annabelle learned how to make a grass whistle. She was so excited to take a video of her blowing on the grass and immediately wanted to send it to her Daddy.
