Let's Talk Cell Phones

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

These days, everyone has a cell phone.  My daughter is nine, and a bunch of her friends in the neighborhood run around with cell phones in their pockets.  In my opinion, that is a little young to have their own cell phones.  I am going to make Brandi wait until she is a teenager before she gets her own phone.  Kasi, however, has been bugging me for a while now for a phone, and at 14, I think she is old enough for one.

I plan on getting her a Straight Talk phone like mine.  I have had mine for months now, and I love it.  It has everything you need to call a friend, send texts, and even get online.  I pay $45 every month for unlimited talk, text, and web.  I go to Walmart and buy a refill card, and it so easy to load it into my phone.  The best thing is that I am not getting a phone bill every month with hidden charges and overages.  II had to pay per text, my phone bill would probably be a few hundred dollars every month.  Yes, I do text that much. 

I believe in this instance. mom knows best about cell phones.  I wouldn't change mine for anything.

Affordable Cell Phones

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I became a single mom a few months ago, and one of the first things I did was get myself a cell phone.  Up until then, I stayed at home all the time so I never had the need for one.  Now that I am working, I use mine all the time. 

The problem I had getting a phone was my credit.  They wanted so much money down as a deposit, and I just couldn't afford it.  My only option was getting a pre-paid phone, and I love it.  I pay as I go, and I didn't have to sign a contract, which means there are no surprise charges every month. 

TracFone's are a great way to go if you are looking for an inexpensive way to stay in touch.  These phones have so many features, and you can get really simple phones that just make phone calls, or you can get a smart phone.  Hearing what real TracFone customers say about their experiences can help you decide if this is the way to go.  They have many options when it comes to putting minutes on the phone, from doing it online or buying a card at the store.  You can even buy a years worth of service, which wouldn't be a bad idea if you have the money.  You can even make international calls for the same price as a regular call. 

I know that I am satisfied with my pre-paid phone, as are other real TracFone customers.  If you want a phone that won't bring you a surprise bill every month, check out TracFone.

Straight Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

That phone they are talking about is awesome.  I know this because I have one. I got it right after Bob left, and I needed a way to keep in touch with the kids while I was working.  I went into Walmart not knowing exactly which cell phone company I wanted to go with, and ended up with my phone simply because I could not afford the deposits on the "regular" cell phone plans. 

You have no idea how happy I am with the way things worked out.  My phone did not come with contract.  I simply buy a phone card every month for $45 and add it to my phone.  That $45 buys me unlimited talk, text, and web.  I mean, these phones have everything you need to stay connected.  I can check Facebook whenever I want, or I can simply call a friend.  There are no overage charges, which drew me in hook, line and sinker.  I mean, with three kids who love to text and talk on the phone, I know I would be paying much more with a "regular" cell phone plan. 

I would recommend Straight Talk phones to everyone.  I wouldn't trade mine for anything.  Well, maybe for one that has a full keyboard so texting is a little easier.
