I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Sprint. I received a device to facilitate my review.
Having a smartphone is an obligation that often is accompanied with a high price tag. Just recently I was talking about wanting to buy an iPhone 6 plus and the $300-500 price tag associated with the phone enough is enough to make most look for a different option. Fortunately for those who are budget-conscious, yet still want a smartphone with all the bells and whistles, Virgin Mobile Custom has you covered.
Pre-Paid is a Smart Choice
I remember when I worked at Circuit City. We sold a ton of Virgin Mobile phones and at that time it usually wasn’t someone’s first choice to get a prepaid phone plan. Times have changed and pre-paid phones are seen as the smart solution to ditching contracts with high costs and over-the-top fees.
Virgin Mobile Custom Moms
I was excited to participate in the Virgin Mobile Custom Moms event because I had an opportunity to visit the Sprint Executive Briefing Center in Atlanta and meet up with several other Atlanta-area bloggers. It’s not every day you’re asked to a top technology company’s corporate office and get the company of fabulous social media talent.
It can be picked up at Walmart for $79.99 and has the following specifications:
- 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Processor
- Long-Lasting 2,100 mAh Battery With Up to 17 Hours Talk Time
- Up to 32GB microSD storage
- Vibrant 4.5″ display with Gorilla Glass 3
- 5 MP Camera with LED Flash
- VGA Front-Facing Camera with Light Frame
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Android 4.4 Kit Kat OS
It was immediately confiscated by my son who absolutely loves watching YouTube videos on it. I really like that I can my smartphone to customize the phone plan and set up parental controls on the device in the Virgin Custom Mobile app. You can never been too careful with kids and smartphones.
Customize Your Plan
I also really like that I can change the custom plan on the device throughout the month as many times as I like. So if I’m worried that we may exceed the limits of the current plan I can always up the service or I can decrease it if I’ve purchased too much. These changes are instant and are a life-saver when trying to stick to a budget. This is one of the features that helps to make your smartphone truly yours.
Unlimited Social Media for $15
Love social media? The Virgin Mobile Custom plans have you covered. For just $15 a month you can get UNLIMTED SOCIAL MEDIA! Yep. That’s definitely my favorite feature.
Have you ditched your contract in exchange for a pre-paid smartphone?
