Getting Kids Their First Phone

Tax time is coming! This year we are filing early so we can get a special gift for Zane for his birthday. We are so excited to get Zane his first phone! I’m so amazed we are already getting our kid his first phone! We were thrilled to connect with Walmart Family Mobile to try the ZTE ZMax with their unlimited talk, text, and data/web plans.

Zane’s Talent

Zane has been struggling finding his “talent” and it was heartbreaking for him to not know what he was good at. What is his talent you might ask? His personality! He has such a fun and joyful personality. He is amazing on camera when we do videos (or when he pretends to make videos).

Zane’s First Phone

We considered getting him just a camera but after some research we decided that a phone with a good camera would be much better for him. We wanted him to be able to upload videos to my computer or directly to YouTube for editing.

Video is one reason we were interested in a 4G LTE service and the Walmart Family Mobile were a good way for us to try out a full talk, text, and data/web plan with no contract. Plus Walmart Family Mobile has the lowest priced unlimited plans at only $29.88/month(for the first line) including Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data.

Get the Max out of Tax Time

We just were not able to fit a phone into the budget for Christmas time so we decided that a phone would be a great birthday present. We could file our taxes before his birthday and use our tax return to get his present. We were very excited to see the ZTE ZMax was one of the phones on the Walmart Family Mobile as it has 4 star reviews on many sites.

Getting Zane’s First Phone

We got up early and drove to our local Walmart store to pick up the ZTE ZMax and a Walmart Family Mobile Starter Kit. The trip was a complete surprise and I love that I got to capture the surprise on video! The car ride home was filled with joy and vlogging his first vlog!
