This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Republic Wireless. All opinions are 100% mine.  I really believe that this is probably the best smartphone for kids!


You know how much I love to save money, right?  I have a family of six, so watching our money is important. I know that many of my friends have children at the age of getting their very first phone (especially with sports season starting and having your child at practices without you… needing to call when it is over.)  I wanted to share with you an option that I just found that won’t “break the bank”.   I found an unlimited-plan smartphone (camera, apps, texting, calling) that is only $19 a month!

Before I go on… read these words:  WATER PROFF, SCRATCH PROOF, DUST PROOF.  that get your attention? Haha!

OK- What do you get from your $19/month?  All the talking, texting and surfing that you want.  This comes without a contract, without limits and without overages. Pretty smart… for a smartphone!  (Did you know that the average American spends more on their monthly cellphone bill than they do on groceries or health insurance? )

So- look at this phone for their first phone.
Here are the features of The Motorola DEFY™ XT Smartphone:

Front-facing VGA Webcam
Rear-facing camera with auto focus/LED Flash, 4x digital zoom
Android operating system with wi-fi and Sprint® 3G Coverage with dual-band reception
Over 450,000 Apps through Google Play™
3.7 inch Corning® Gorilla® glass display
Dustproof, water and scratch resistant

I was really surprised that all of this comes with the low pricetag.   If our kids were at phone-age right now (it is not far away!), I would DEFINITLY get this!   It is cheaper than a shirt at their favorite store!

Ok- here is a video to show you what I’m talking about:  check it out here at Republic Wireless
