I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Virgin Mobile. I received a sample device to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.
Is your tween or teen asking for a new cell phone this Holiday Season? I bet a lot of kids are. Kids younger and younger have cell phones now, and it’s normal! I am sure some people will say that kids shouldn’t have cell phones until they reach a certain age, but I don’t agree! With so many people ditching landline service like we used to have when growing up a cell phone is really the only option. That is if you don’t mind sharing yours and having kids calling and texting your cell phone all day…yes been there, done that! I mean let’s face it; we all know how popular my 4th grader Princess Jada is! SO, she has had her own cell phone since 2nd grade!
There are so many affordable options on the market now that almost everyone; every age has a cell phone! We have had our family plan for years! However, we are also locked into a contract! That doesn’t mean that I’m not checking out my options! If you follow me on instragram I’m sure that you have seen that I have been testing out the LG Pulse™ from Virgin Mobile Custom. I like the phone, but it’s the PLAN that I am in love with! I have been telling everyone I know about Virgin Mobile’s new custom plan! Trust me when I find a product or service that I really love I feel it’s my duty to tell EVERYONE!
What is Virgin Mobile Custom:
Virgin Mobile custom is a fully customizable cell phone plan that has great parental controls. This allows parents like myself to control how their children use their phones, allowing them to limit the time of day talk or text can be used, and even limit certain apps or data use during inopportune times like during school hours, or when it may be unsafe to do so, such as while driving. As a parent of teens, this is something that I NEED! I can’t tell you how many times I have looked over our phone bills and noticed that my kids are texting in class or late at night when they are supposed to be in bed!
This plan, offered by Virgin Mobile USA, also allows you to activate up to five lines at an affordable rate, and get this it’s as little as $6.98 per line per month! The best part you are able to control the exact amount of data and minutes provided for each line, any number of times, right from the device within the monthly billing cycle, allowing us to tailor our plan to our individual family needs! BEST PART Its NO CONTRACT!
I LOVE IT! The service and plan gets five stars! The phone needed updating so that did take a little time to but after that the set up was fast and simple. I was up and running in no time. I love the fact that I am in control of the amount of services I need. We are always around Wi-Fi so we rarely use data but of course, I am stuck paying for a large amount of data we don’t use each month with my current provider. So, being able to select no data was perfect with Virgin Mobile Custom! I also loved that I could pick the amount of minutes and text I wanted. I love being in control! However, I think my favorite part of the plan is I can now control my kid’s usage! Which has really come in handy. I had to take my oldest child’s phone from him due to being addicted to texting LATE at night and in class! But as a parent, I still wanted to be able to contact him if needed so I gave him this phone. Since I wanted to limit texting especially during certain hours, this works perfect! No more worrying or having to take the phone at certain times. Our provider has something similar to this where I can control the kid’s usage, but I am not adding 9.99 each LINE per month on top of my already outrageous bill!
The call quality is also great! I admit I was worried about the coverage area, but I was shocked that it works just as well as ours! So, parents if you love to control be sure to check out Virgin Mobile Custom today!
Virgin Mobile Custom currently has three devices to choose from starting at $79.99 available exclusively at select Walmart stores or walmart.com
