It’s hard to remember the days before cell phones and the ability to call, email, or text any person at any time. Now, my 15-year-old can text me in between classes to ask me to check something in her room, my 17-year-old can email me from her college classes to have me look over a paper, and my 11-year-old can call me when she’s done with drama club after school and needs to be picked up. All from the convenience of a hand-held mobile phone. It’s hard to imagine being a mom of teens and tweens without cell phones.
It’s funny to think that I hesitated to get phones for my kids for YEARS (just ask my oldest daughter, who was the LAST of her friends to get a phone), and now I can’t imagine living without them.
My two middle school aged kids share a phone. It’s MY phone, but they have use of it, and it’s more for my benefit than for theirs (although they might argue that point). I am SO excited that their AT&T GoPhone now has a new rate plan available that offers even better prices for better service.
The new $45 GoPhone smartphone rate plan:
For $45 per month, the new plan offers:
- Nationwide unlimited talk, text and data – with 1GB of data at 4G/LTE high-speed
- Add an additional 500MB of high-speed data to this package for $10.*
*Data usage exceeding the high-speed allowance will result in reduced data speed of up to 128 Kbps for the rest of your 30-day term. Actual speeds vary by device and location.
Another GoPhone special: From now through February 28, 2015, AT&T offers savings on smartphones:
- Receive $30 off GoPhone smartphones over $99
- Receive $10 off GoPhone smartphones under $99
I love that there are so many GoPhone smartphones that are so affordable – that’s a huge plus when it comes to phones that kids have access to (I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to pay a bunch of cash for a phone that might be lost, dropped, and over-all abused by kids). But these aren’t “kid phones” – they’re smartphones that my husband and I like, too. But I also love that the GoPhone plans don’t require a lengthy commitment.

To celebrate the new rate plans, I’m giving away an awesome GoPhone Freedom kit (the perfect holiday gift, perhaps??), which includes:

I often have to take my father to medical appointments. Having a phone would help keep in contact with the family at home so I can make arrangements for starting dinner, picking up kids, etc when we end up running late.

This Would Help My Family By Saving Us Money And Keeping Us On Budget.
The prepaid service we have now is abysmal and I know the ATT GoPhone will be much better.

We could talk/text without any worries about going over data.
