Our son has been begging us for a cell phone since he was eight. At that time, we figured he didn’t really need one, and decided to wait until he was a bit older, a bit more responsible and could actually benefit from having one

Fast forward a few years and now that we feel he is ready, we have a decision to make. While we could add him on to our existing plan, we are already faced with outrageous bills. Add a child who is just getting a new gadget and learning to use it responsibly, and the bills will skyrocket!

Then a friend of mine suggested looking into prepaid plans, more specifically the T-Mobile Simply Prepaid™.

Having had a prepaid plan myself several years ago, I was at first a bit hesitant. After all, prepaid plans are usually associated with spotty service, slow data, and well, let’s face it, a less-than-great selection of phones. Thankfully the times have changed!

Introducing Simply Prepaid™ from T-Mobile  – the best in wireless, now in prepaid! For just $40 dollars a month get 4G LTE data with unlimited talk and text! In addition, with a prepaid plan there are no overages, credit check or annual service contract required. What a perfect deal for a child’s first phone!

Wanting to keep it a surprise (his birthday is right around the corner!), my husband and I headed off to WalMart to check out their selection. Walking back to the Electronics department I immediately spotted the T-Mobile Simply Prepaid™ line with its bright pink and white packaging. There were several different phones from which to choose including flip phones and smartphones. There was literally a phone for every budget!

We finally decided on the Samsung Galaxy Avant which was not only affordable, but also has a 5 MP camera and a 4.5″ qHD touchscreen. In addition, it comes with plenty of apps, which I am sure he will take advantage of, especially since he’ll have access to high-speed data on T-Mobile’s Nationwide 4G LTE Network!

While I know our son is going to be excited to get a phone, his father and I are excited, too! Not only have we found an affordable cell phone service, but we now have peace of mind knowing we can easily get in touch with our son, and he with us!

I didn't have a cell phone until I was in college - they just weren't as common until then! Now, my son is starting to ask when he'll have his first phone. He's not even 6!!! We have told him he'll have to stick with his tablet for apps for QUITE a while! :) This is such a great deal - and I hope your son enjoys this fabulous birthday gift!

I have heard great things about T-Mobile's prepaid phones! I think these would be great for any preteen these days.

They really are! Not only do you save money, but you can use it to help teach your child how to use a cell phone responsibly.

You know, I haven't given my daughter a cellphone yet (she's 7) but have been wondering when is the right age. I remember getting my first (land line) phone at 13 and that was a big deal LOL.

I remember getting my first landline phone as well! It really was such a huge deal for me! LOL! Our main reason for waiting to get him a phone was that we wanted him to be old enough to be able to learn how to use a phone responsibly, and to know that it isnt a toy. Now that he is older, not only is he more actively involved in after school activities, but he is old enough to start learning and understanding the responsibility that comes with having his own phone.
