There’s something to be said about having a dependent mobile service. Nowadays things are uncertain, and are always changing. As a student, the cost of everything from books to tuition (never mind those loan rates) are on the rise. Having had a chance to test out Walmart’s Family Mobile unlimited plan, I can say that the certainty of receiving reliable service at an affordable rate is, well, invaluable.
First off, my phone is pretty awesome – the LG Optimum L9 is easily my new favorite gadget. It’s super fast, and the screen resolution is on point. The camera has a 5 megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video capture – which I’ve already used to take tons of pictures. It had a microSD slot with up to 32GB expandable memory. It’s super thin – but doesn’t feel breakable, definitely has a solid make. I purchased a new case (black and pink) and a screen protector – but the shipper sent me one for the iphone instead, as you might have noticed. I’m using it for now, but it is significantly smaller.
Secondly, being able to know that at the end of the month my bill won’t exceed $40 gives me incredible peace of mind. The amount of money I’m saving means that I’ll be able to save for books next semester and possibly upgrading my camera!
My old phone was too slow for me to tweet while at events (it would take me literally 20 minutes to tweet once). So I would end up carrying around my tablet – which isn’t the easiest thing to do because I would often have to carry a larger bag to carry said tablet in, carry the actual tablet, shake hands, and exchange business cards while also tweeting and taking photos – never mind the whole drink holding, mini cheeseburger eating business (I know, we bloggers lead such hard, miserable lives, lol!). With the LG L9 I carry it around in the smallest clutch, can easily tuck it away or take it out. I can tweet, instagram, and update my facebook profile within seconds thanks to Walmart’s T-Mobile service. I don’t have to juggle everything – and now I can finally enjoy those mini cheeseburgers!
For my generation, having a presence on social media and being connected is essential. We’re also pretty demanding about the services and products we love – Walmart’s Family Mobile unlimited plan combined with the LG Optimus L9 phone is a perfect match of excellent service and impressive product.
