It seems like I'm writing a lot about cell phones lately...but almost everyone has one, and life today is such that almost everyone needs one to some degree or other. Teenagers are away from home more with increasing commitments, and the juggling act that many parents go through day after day, week after week makes it even harder to keep track of everyone. This is why I think family plans are genius and have a lot to offer to busy families. I honestly don't know that my kids will have their own phones as teenagers, but to have an extra phone they can take with them to activities or something is a great idea.
With TracFone, you can pay as you go, or choose from monthly plans with 200 minutes for under $30, or as low as $9.99 for 50 minutes. If your kids are only going to use that phone to call home and check in, this is a great deal, and a great way to limit how much they are calling people from cell phones.
Random, but you can also call internationally for the same price as local calls, or provide phones for relatives in other countries so they can call you.
Seniors can also have a cell phone at a price they can afford, providing them with the assurance that they can be connected to others. This is Senior Value
