FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE: Walmart #FamilyMobile is great for frugal budgets for Father's Day #shop

My Dad with my son, circa 2000...two total cuties :)
Walmart Family Mobile has the perfect no-contract unlimited talk, text, data/web mobile plan and smartphone for Father's Day gift giving...

Every year, I never know what to get my Dad for Father's Day. I hate to just give him cash - although, like me, he does love money :)

So each year, I sit down and think about the things he loves to do and try to match his gift to his personality, which is hard because this is the man that says that he has everything that he needs. And at ninety years old, my Dad probably does feel like he has seen and done it all.

One of the things that my Dad has always loved is technology, especially mobile phones. Even at his age, my Dad is always on the go. He is a people person and loves to be where the action is so he is usually out and about from early morning to night fall 7 days a week.

To keep in contact while on the go, my Dad has owned a mobile phone for well over 15 years, well before they became popular. But his current flip phone has seen better days. I think he would find it exciting to try out a new smartphone, but I know that the phone would need to be simple to use so that he does not get frustrated. And even though I want to buy him a very nice smartphone, I would need to find him one that is not be too expensive since he would not be happy if a spent a lot of money.

Look for the Walmart Family Mobile display in the electronics section of Walmart
Walmart Family Mobile - Simple to use and Frugal!!!
Last year I had the pleasure of reviewing the Walmart Family Mobile Plan so I know that Walmart sells smartphones that go along with their low priced mobile plan that range in price from only $50 to just under $500.

Since I review a lot of smartphones, when a co-worker asked me for advice as to which smartphone I thought he should get his retirement age mom who had never used a smartphone, I suggested that he buy her the no-contract Nokia Lumia 521 smartphone.  He later thanked me because his mother L-O-V-E-S her Nokia Lumia and uses it all the time.

The Nokia Lumia 521 is a Windows OS smartphone with a tile interface that makes learning how to use it a breeze and it retails for the low, low price of only $99.98 at Walmart. So I think you know which smartphone a think would be perfect for my Dad for Father's Day :)

The Nokia Lumia 521 has some awesome features for a device that retails for under $100, including -

- 8GB of internal memory, expanded to 64GB with its memory card slot

- 5MP rear auto focus camera and a front camera so that you can take photos and Skype

- Removable 1430mAh battery, which means you can buy a 2nd battery for less that $5 so this smartphone will keep you connected all day while on the go

- easy integration with Xbox, Windows 8 and SkyDrive so you can play games and access your photos and videos while on the go

The Walmart Family Mobile Plan is a low cost plan option worth checking out...
The Nokia Lumia 521 is a great smartphone to use with the Walmart Family Mobile Plan, which is a postpaid no contract mobile phone plan powered by T-Mobile that has all the best features the big name plans, including unlimited talk, text and data/web (2.5GB 3G web with 2G data for the rest of the month) for only $39.88 a month with additional lines for only $34.88, all with month to month payments and no long-term commitment.

If you want to save even more money, the Walmart Family Mobile Plan also comes in a 2nd flavor with Unlimited Talk and Text (no data) for $24.88 a month with up to 5 additional lines for $19.88 each a month.  This is the plan to get for those who can connect their smartphone to WIFI most of the time and don't need a data plan while on the go.

Activation of the Walmart Family Mobile Plan service is easy with the purchase a SIM Starter Kit for $25.  The plan can be activated in-store at customer service or on-line at the Walmart Family Mobile website. And the Walmart Family Mobile Plan has lots of ways for customers to pay their bill, including in store, by phone, and online at the Walmart Family Plan Account Management website.

So if like me, you live in an area where T-mobile 3G service is good, and you want to check out the well priced Nokia Lumia 521 and the frugal Walmart Family Mobile Plan for your dad or the man in your life for Father's Day, you can find all the information on the plan and the available smartphones over on the Walmart Family Mobile website.

It's a frugal no-contract mobile plan and smartphone that can make the perfect tech gift for Father's Day.
