Many people don’t realize that a smart phone without a plan is still very useful and can connect to WiFi.
About a year and a half ago I switched to Straight Talk. They had a deal where if you bought a phone card, their version of a pre-paid plan, you could get a free phone. I didn’t like the free phone options so I chose a phone to purchase, but I accepted the free phone.
I put my daughter’s audio books and favorite music on the phone and intended to give it to her to use as an mp3 player. It turns out the video and camera features were even more exciting. I set her up with an email account and put it on the phone. I also set up the WiFi. She likes to watch videos on YouTube.
Maybe you readers are better off than I am and can purchase all these electronics for your kids. But for those of you on a budget this is a very valuable option.
I also set up Overdrive Media on Luna’s phone which is something you can probably access through your local library and she has a virtual library at her fingertips. The book automatically return themselves when then expire. No late fees, no lost books.
She has also learned that if you forget your charger you can’t finish your book which in this day and age is a good habit to learn.
Well the baby just woke up. I hope to fill you in more soon.
If you need specific help on how to do any of the things I mentioned and you can’t find the information on the internet ask a question in the comments and I’ll be happy to help.
