When I was a kid the last thing on my mind was the phone. I remember always asking my mom to make my calls for me because it made me nervous. I was a teenager before I cared about the phone. My son is competely different. He was begging for a cell phone when he was seven years old. I couldnt believe how many of his friends already had one. He eventually got one for emergencies when he was 10 so that if he got off the bus before I got off work he could call me and go over to the neighbors house. I dont want to pay alot of money for his phone though so I have been searching for a good plan for him to have. The Republic Wireless plan is a great one for a first smartphone for a child. It is only $19 a month with unlimited data, talk and text plan on the $199 Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone.
The Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone has some great features front-facing VGA Webcam. Its a great phone for kids and teenagers because its dustproof, water and scratch resistant. Its Android with a rear-facing camera with auto focus/LED Flash, 4x digital zoom. The Republic Wireless plan is so inexpensive because it uses Hybrid Wi-Fi Calling. The way it works is that it lets you harness the power of Wi-Fi for calls, texts and data while also having full cellular capabilities. Since most of the time my son wants to text is upstairs in his room, this is great for me! No contract, no overages, no limits are just music to my ears.
How much do you spend a month? How many times have you wished you had a waterproof phone?
