Prepaid Cell Phones: A Cheap Solution For Parents

Communication,Family & Parenting,Science & Technology
Being a father of three teenagers, one of the challenges that I face daily is worrying about my children; their whereabouts and most especially their safety. More often than not, I worry that in case an emergency happens, they would be unable to reach me immediately. Since my eldest son is also driving a second hand car, I constantly worry that the car might break down at any time or a road accident may happen. To address my worries, I realized that the only way for my children to contact me immediately in case of any emergency is through the use of a cell phone.

Cellular phones are a fantastic way to get in touch with one another especially in emergency cases, however, they aren't cheap, especially contract (or postpaid plans). It would be quite unrealistic and expensive for me to add three teenagers to my phone plan, just for emergency cases only. Another downside is that there is always the possibility of one of my kids racking up expensive non-emergency related phone calls or text messages, in which case, I'd have to pay all those outrageous over the minute charges and possibly suffer having a blow on my credit score. Being teenagers, well, let's just say that it is kind of hard to entirely trust their judgment.

Thankfully, I realized that there was a way to get my teenage kids a phone without having to risk paying huge fees. The answer is prepaid cell phones. Prepaid phones are a cheap alternative to traditional and expensive contract plans. The difference between prepaid plans and traditional contract plans is that you purchase the minutes before you use them which allows you to set a limit on the amount of minutes your kids will use. When the minutes are used up for the month the phone shuts off. There’s no chance of your kids going over on their minutes and causing you to pay huge over minute charges.

With the use of prepaid cell phones, I can get each of my three children cell phones with corresponding prepaid minutes. That way, my son can simply leave the cell phone in his glove compartment and forget about it until an emergency situation arises.

My other two kids can each have the phone handy in their backpacks also for emergency cases or situations where they need to contact me or their dad immediately. It's a fantastic solution to my problem because not only will I be able to control the minutes that I buy for them, but I won't have to pay anything except for the monthly reload of the cell phones. How convenient is that? No hidden fees, no hidden charges and no connection whatsoever on my credit score. My kids can use up the minutes when they need to and I just reload the minutes every month.

Prepaid phone plans are a sure fire way to make sure that my kids can contact me in an emergency without having to worry about any bills or fees. Indeed, prepaid cell phones are the way to go if you want a no frills, easy access cell phone without paying outrageous amounts of money.
