*I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Virgin Mobile USA which is one ofSprint’s prepaid brands.
I received two Virgin Mobile smartphones to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.*
Love being a #SprintMom! Today I want to share with you all about Virgin Mobile’s Walmart exclusive plans, Data Done Right! For starters there is no contract. There is also no additional monthly line fees if you have more than one line of service. If you are traveling, they even have flexible international calling/texting options! Ok, so more on the Virgin Mobile Data Done Right plans which are exclusively at Walmart:
Awesome deals, right?! We opted for the 2 line,6GB plan and it’s been working great for us! Affordable and great service! Not to mention it’s on the Sprint® Nationwide Network! This #SprintMom is very happy!
Setting Up Service:
Setting up Virgin Mobile Data Done Right plans is extremely easy! All phones come pre-loaded with the Virgin Mobile application, just follow the prompts and you’ll be using your new device in no time! You can manage data sharing directly from the device and allocate a specific amount of data to each line. I especially love the Parental control features with device curfew and app restrictions!
Using A Chore Chart:
I love the family chore chart! The Chore Chart will help you organize your families data sharing allotment. You can divvy up the gigs easily and reward family members for doing chores and good deeds. I also love the visual aspect of being able to see how you are doing with trying to collect data! Check out this interesting info-graphic below. Do you have a data hog in your family? Luckily for an extra $5 a month, you can have unlimited usage on popular social media and music streaming apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pandora without counting against your data allotment!
I never thought I’d give my 7 year old a phone (she’ll be 8 in March). But it’s been great! Everyone’s family dynamics are different and this has been great for all of us. For starters Gabby knows that she is being given a huge responsibility by being given a phone. Only immediate family members and close friends are on her contact list. She knows she has to earn her data by continuously doing well in school and working on the chore chart. Her father and I co-parent so having her own phone is just easier for us. She has her own phone to download apps on! Yes! More space on my phone! haha And speaking of apps, I can control what she can download and keep an eye on her account. Her account is disabled during school hours and data is limited so she doesn’t blow through it. Though my boyfriend seems to be the data hog at the moment, perhaps I should restrict his account more? lol
Overall, I am very happy with the Virgin Mobile Data Done Right plans! The phones we have weren’t expensive and work great! The service is awesome! I love being able to control and manage the data for the accounts. Best of all it’s affordable!
