[alert style=”white”] I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Virgin Mobile USA which is one of Sprint’s prepaid brands. I received two Virgin Mobile smartphones to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. [/alert]
There are lots of things families fuss over. Some fuss about chores. “Okay…. who was supposed to replace the toilet paper?….there is NO toilet paper….I KNOW I told SOMEONE to replace it!!!” And other families fuss about things like “How the heck did we go OVER our data by 8 gigs?! …. That’s it! I’m taking the phones away!!”
Wouldn’t it be great if you could solve BOTH of these problems at the same time? I know what you’re thinking, “Are you nuts or just magic?” Neither. But, I do know about a great data plan from Virgin Mobile (available exclusively at Walmart – find your store) that will help you tackle both of these issues at one time. It’s called Data Done Right…. and you’re going to love what it can do.
There’s always that one family member that uses up all the data each month (sometimes more than one!), but with Data Done Right you can control the data flow and use the restriction methods to divvy out the gigs in a way that helps everyone learn to be more responsible for the data they use. With the device management you can restrict usage limits by device and feature (data, talk and text), set date and time restrictions (maybe homework will be done on time for once!), restrict specific apps, and even pay for your next month of service right from your phone.
- All phones come pre-loaded with the custom Virgin Mobile app so that you can enjoy all the features and control your data again.
- Every Multi-line plan also offers free mobile hotspot. Did Dad go over and he really needs to send an email? Let him borrow some of yours on any Wi-Fi enabled device.
Virgin Mobile’s Data Done Right Multi-line Data Sharing plans feature:
- Preloaded app: Manage data sharing directly from designated devices (you pick who can change data limits), and allocate a specific amount of data to each device.
- Parental control features: Set usage curfews, app restrictions, timed blackouts and even turn on and off basic options like talk, text and all data.
- Replenish your data with one-touch options
- Does your family love social media? For just $5 more per month, use popular streaming and social media apps WITHOUT data charges. Unlimited use of apps like Facebook, Twitter, Pandora and more without it counting against your data. Now that is a teenager’s dream come true!
- No Contract. No additional fee per line. And you’re access is through someone you are familiar with: the Sprint® Nationwide Network.
- Data Done Right Single Line and Multi-line Data Sharing plans are available exclusively at Walmart.
When the kids groan and complain after you first tell them about the data limits (because you know they will), slap one of these on the fridge and teach them the ways of EARNING. You can see our Data Chore Chart below. But, it’s easy to make one of your own at home. Mark how many gigs are up for grabs. Then assign chores to each child that they can complete to earn another gig. Next thing you know, your kids will be fighting to see who gets to do more chores!
