The average age at which a child gets their first cell phone? Eight. (Don’t ask me to cite my source. I heard it on the radio a few days ago. But I’m sure it’s true. They can’t say anything on the radio that’s not true.) The number of children in the average family? Two. (And I totally Googled that. It’s more like 2.06…but we’re gonna assume that .06th of a kid doesn’t have his own phone.) Let’s say you cut your kids off at age 18. (Ha! Like anyone really does that.) That means you’re paying for 240 months of phone service for those kids. Now let’s use my phone bill. I pay $83 a month. 240 months at $83 a month? That’s a total of $19,920! Ouch!
But there’s good news. Wanna save over $10,000? Then it’s time to look at Walmart Family Mobile. For $39.88 a month you get unlimited talk, text and web. All without a contract.
