Keeping in touch with family members that live out of the country is easier to do than it was many years ago. We now have long distance services for both our homes and our cell phones, but the cost is really high. I knew there had to be a cheap wireless plan. So, I have been on the lookout for the best wireless plan that allows me to reach my cousins who live in Germany. I have finally found it! While shopping at Walmart, I happened upon the Walmart Family Mobile plan.
My Mother was born and raised in Germany. She moved to England to go to school and then she met my Father who was in the military. I am sure you know the rest of the story. Shortly after they married, my father was re-stationed and was sent to Texas to further his Army career. My Mother happily went to start a new adventure with her young husband, but wondered if she would ever see home again. Back in the 50’s the main way to communicate with family was by letter. Calling some one was often a long process and involved getting the operator on the phone and making an appointment (remember operators – I know some of you won’t). Often, getting a phone call from an out of the country family member meant something was wrong!
Times sure have changed. I can easily dial the phone and reach my cousin in seconds. This is a great thing because we recently found out my cousin Werner, has cancer. My Mom and I have been calling him more often. It is just so expensive. My current phone plan has me tied to a contract and the international rates are crazy! I really can’t afford to speak to my family member for long. I needed the lowest price rate plan I could find.
Walmart’s Family Mobile Plan allows me to call my cousins in Germany without worrying about the money I am spending. With the Family Mobile Plan, I don’t have to worry about a contract and I can end the service when I want to. I purchased minutes for my international calls and I can check on my phone what my balance is. Of course, I get unlimited phone and text messaging that I can use with my local family and friends.
I highly recommend Walmart’s Family Mobile Plan. With the money we are saving with the Unlimited Plan we can afford to speak to family more often. That really makes me happy.
So if you are thinking about getting a new low price rate plan, think about going to Walmart and check out their Family Plan (#FamilyMobileSaves). If you want more information, check out the on-line account management and information page. I think the unlimited plan would be great for kids going back to school! No need to worry about how many calls they are making or how many texts they are sending! While we are talking about back to school drop by the Live SoFab Back to School Digital Magazine – there is a lot of great information there!

Although this is a paid #shop from #cbias, it really is helping my family. I have been able to speak to both of my cousins and will continue to do so with the #FamilyMobileSaves plan from Walmart.
