Back to School Cool with Walmart Family Mobile Lowest Price Unlimited Plans

I can’t believe it’s already that time again – summer has come and gone and it’s back to school time! No more leisurely evenings, or stress free mornings. No more lounging by the pool, or afternoon picnics at the park. Back to schedules, and bus stops, soccer practice and book club. I am constantly on the run going back and forth between the jr high and elementary school not to mention work.  Sometimes I drop one at practice to go pick up another, then to drop off another, and back to pick up the next one – my Mom taxi never stops! That’s why the Walmart Family Mobile lowest price unlimited plans were a necessity on our school shopping list this year.


I know kids think back to school is hard on them, but they really have no clue how hard it is on us parents – the stress of worry, money, and carpool! This year my youngest daughter is involved in quite a few after school activities. So I decided to pick up the Sparq II phone for her which is perfect for my little texting queen and perfect for #Phones4School.. She can call or text me when practice is over, if something is running behind (or early) and I love having the ability to check in with her and know that she can reach me anytime she might need to. The days of pay phones have ceased to exist and the need for our kids to have a way to get a hold of us a necessity. The phone is on rollback for just $24.88 and with a unlimited talk & text plan for $24.88 the price couldn’t be beat!

She didn’t waste anytime texting her friends – I am so thankful it’s unlimited. I felt she was a bit young for the unlimited data, but maybe next year sometime we can add it and the price is still reasonable. Definitely fits in our budget, and I love not having to worry about overages. 


These phones are great for any student on a budget – and any parent who wants peace of mind while their child is away. Be sure to check your local Walmart for the Sparq II or even purchase it online at

Who would you purchase the Sparq II phone and Unlimited Talk & Text plan for?

  1. I love that they have these plans, especially for young ones. My niece and nephew have phones and I LOVE that I can talk to them whenever.

  2. Jaime says:

    My son is still way too young for a phone. (He’s almost 3.) However, this would be great for a first phone for a teen (or younger.) I remember having a ridiculously low plan when I got my first phone. Not sure how I handled it as well as I did. 🙂

  3. I have yet to see this in our Canadian walmarts. My son got an iPhone and is on my plan, but this would be much cheaper!

  4. I am so glad to see Walmart getting more trendy items. I had a prepaid phone for the longest time and then went with contract. Went back to prepaid and now back with contract. It’s funny typing that out and seeing how I went back and forth. But it was more due to circumstances in life and the area I lived.

  5. Debra says:

    Glad to see that there are affordable phones & plans. I would get one for my mom – she really needs to have a cell phone.

  6. I use one of the prepaid phone plans, and I love it. You really do get more for your buck, than with a contract.

  7. This sounds like a really good family plan! We love Walmart!

  8. I need to get a good plan for my son. AT&T is totally killing me.

  9. Rachael says:

    These are some great rates. I’ll have to pass the info on to my daughter.

  10. Lisa says:

    Walmart Family Mobile has great service. Hubby uses them for his phone.

  11. Debbie Denny says:

    That sounds like a really good plan. Very handy for parents.

  12. I am glad you found a good deal at Wally World for you phones! I will have to check them out next time I need a phone!

  13. Dawn says:

    My husband has been on Family Mobile for a while, and a few weeks ago my daughter switched. They both love it, I am thinking about switching too. They have such great deals!

  14. Jennifer says:

    my oldest isn’t quite old enough for a phone yet but my husband and I have already discussed that the Walmart plan is definitely what we are going to get her. I love their affordable plans and phones.

  15. Chrysa says:

    This looks like a great way to provide an affordable phone for kids. Very reasonable plan!

  16. My boys are too young for a cell phone. But when they have a busier schedule and get older, I will definitely get him a cell phone.

  17. I love Walmart Family Mobile and how affordable they are! I would definitely buy my daughter this phone once she’s old enough – although, who knows what they will have once she’s old enough!

  18. Walmart’s family plan is amazing. It is so affordable and perfect for a family of texters 🙂

  19. When it is time to get my daughter a phone this will definitely be something we check out.

    Hard to think that our kids are getting cell phones for school now! These look very affordable!

  24. Dina says:

    I’ve been looking to reduce my cell bill. I’m going to check out walmarts plans.

  25. Erica says:

    This is something that we have been talking a lot about. Our cell phone bill is currently outrageous and I know we could save tons by switching!

  26. Theresa says:

    This sounds like a reasonably priced phone. We will be in the market to get our daughter a phone soon, so we will definitely keep this one in mind!

  27. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    I love Walmart’s wireless center. I have bought a few phones there. I like that there are so many family plans available.

  28. Very cool! I love Walmart’s wireless center. So many great options. And so much more convenient that having to go to an actual carrier store.

  29. Toni says:

    I have two kids who will be coming into phone age soon. I will definitely look into Walmart plans!

  30. Amanda says:

    So cool! I’ve never even thought about going to Walmart for cell phone options. I’m going to check it out!

  31. Kendra says:

    That price is great. I think this might where we head for our first cell phones. How has the coverage been?

  32. Incredibly thankful to have my boys both under five and not have to deal with cell phones and things yet. I’m just not ready!! A few more years of toy trucks and bubbles please!! 🙂

  33. Danielle says:

    I definitely think a talk/text plan is perfect for this age. Don’t have to worry about surfing the web without supervision. And you can’t beat that price! #client
