Momma Told Me: Electronics should make life easier.
Exactly one month ago I made the big switch.
After one year of giving my current cheap wireless plan 'another chance,' I threw my arms in the air and proclaimed "Something has to change!" Month after month I was spending time calling in to customer service, even just to complete the simplest tasks. My automatic payments weren't going through 'automatically,' and the wait time to speak to a physical human was exorbitant. Then, when I found my way to a human assistant I was shuffled from department to department. The month before my big switch I spent 6 hours on the phone with customer service, and that wasn't even to address the 90% missed call rate on my phone line. I was fed up of spending my hard earned money on sub par service, and my family's time with me, on the phone.

We recently hit the local dollar store with our Family Mobile Savings and everyone got to pick out an affordable water toy. Since we live in a condominium complex without a pool we're forced to find creative ways to beat the heat. This means weekly water balloon, bubble, and water gun sessions. In the past I've often had to sit fun activities like this out because I've been strapped for time and on the phone solving service issues or trying to process non-recurring recurring payments. I'm happy to report, last month, we got in an entire Summer's worth of fun! (And the Summer's just beginning.) I'm thrilled to be able to bring back the tickle monster and arm myself in our family's water fights, and I think it's fair to say the entire family appreciates the extra time too. Okay, well, everyone except for Nora, who seems to be target practice :)
What Daughter Says: Stop chasing after your wireless company. Walmart Family Mobile works for you, while saving money.
