As a new mom, I've worried about everything including whether or not W was gaining enough weight, if he was sleeping too much, if he wasn't sleeping enough, and how he would survive teething! I also worry about the future. How will we afford a car when he's 16? what about college? What will we do when he needs a cell phone?
The cell phone issue will definitely come sooner than I want it to and I worry about the cost with rising cell phone costs. Will we have to take out a 2nd mortgage to get him a phone? We're one of those families without a landline. We haven't had one in years so a cell phone will become a necessity when W is going from school to sports to who knows what else!
I recently learned about TracFone and it sounds like I don't have to worry about getting W a phone when the time comes. If he needed one right now, TracFone offers a number of affordable solutions! TracFone also offers a number of other great features:
- As real TracFone customers will tell you -- there are no hidden fees, no contracts, no surprises!
- real TracFone customers get reliability with nationwide cell coverage and good connectivity
- TracFone offers phones with all of the basic functionality you need for under $10
- For $29.99 you can get a phone that with web access, an mp3 player, or a QWERTY keyboard

TracFone also offers an amazingly affordable Pay-As-You-Go program which I think would be perfect for W when he's older. It's also convenient because I can pick up cards at one of the thousands of retails stores that carry them!
At least one of my worries can be put to rest because it looks like with companies like Tracfone there will be options when my son finally needs his own phone! I try not to think too much about that day even though I know it will be here before I know it!
