It has probably been about a year since we started a ‘family cell phone’. I call it that because I don’t want my older boys thinking the phone is exclusively theirs, though I will say that it is my 12 year old who dominates it. We bought it for when they go on a bike ride or to a friends house, I can easily text them to come back. Also for sports leagues when they are away from home. I didn’t mean for it to be brought to school, but I have to admit that I like when C’Man keeps it in his bag if one of us has a message.

T-Mobile Walmart

The biggest issue I have found is our high wireless bill just keeps getting larger. ugh. This week we headed to Walmart to find the T-Mobile prepaid plan to see what it was all about. We found the the section right in the middle of other companies Walmart carries highlighted in the pink. We located the Samsung Galaxy Avant for $149. We were excited for this phone because Hubby has been a fan of the Galaxy before.

Introducing Simply Prepaid from T-Mobile. A plan that is just $40 dollars a month and you get 4G LTE data with unlimited talk and text. I love the No hassle of No overages, No credit check, and so important, No contract.

Simply Prepaid

Have you been a part of other wireless companies and prepaid plans before? Maybe experienced slow data, spotty networks, and a second rate phone? T-Mobile is proud of their new Simply Prepaid with great phone options like the Samsung Avant – everything you need on a smartphone, plus the 4G LTE network included.


We brought it home to test it out and C’Man immediately put on his top 8 fav apps. He wants to share them with you!

Candy Crush – he may watch his mama too much. ha!

Mine Craft – a building addiction.

Trivia Crack – the boys in this house like to see who is smarter.

Clash of Clans – a strategy game creating communities and defending them.

Netflix – watch his favorite shows.

Pandora – listen to a variety of music.

Google Earth – he LOVES this app and showing us what specific geographical points look like.

Weather – do we go outside to find out the day’s forecast? No, I ask C’Man my weather man.
