A Phone for International Calling Moms

There are a few things that are staples in our bags. Keys, a credit card and our phones are always on hand. We rely on our phones for so much. Along with being the leading camera for our families, I’m sharing 4 aspects of cell phone use moms should consider when selecting a phone for themselves and their families, particularly those with friends and family living internationally.

  1. Emergency! That moment may strike when you’re in the car, at soccer practice or even just in the backyard with the kids. As a mom, you need to have a reliable cell phone with you at all times so you can make that quick emergency call when needed. I always have my phone in my back pocket. I can easily call Dad, the doctor or others at a moment’s notice.
  2. It never changes! It doesn’t matter how many addresses you have; your cell phone number can always be the same. Whether you move from a city to another state, or even to another part of the country, you can maintain that same phone number so those that need to get in contact with you can always find you. So whether it’s your Tia Abuela Mari in Guatemala or your cousin Francisco in Los Angeles, your family will always be able to connect with you no matter where you currently call home.
  3. What’s a house phone? With the reliability of cell phones, many families are finding it unnecessary to maintain a home number. With at least one, and often two or three family members maintaining a cell phone that is charged and ready to make calls, families feel protected and safe about making and receiving phone calls without the additional cost of a home line. Plus, you can get incredible fees calling internationally from your home phone. Yes, so many of us have gotten that bill and thought, “Oh my goodness, I had no idea it would cost that much to call my best friend Maria Luisa!”
  4. Your family may live in Havana, Cartagena, Tegucigalpa or Santo Domingo, and they want to talk to you just as often as if you were next-door neighbors. Cricket Wireless connects you to many countries, so you can connect with your loved ones. With Cricket Wireless, users can choose from 10 popular calling destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean, including the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Costa Rica, and more. With their international calling feature with the Smart or Pro plan, customers get unlimited talk and text to keep in close contact with their friends and family living out of the country.

Yes, there are many cell phone plans available to consumers. Picking the right one seems like such a challenging task. I am really impressed with what Cricket Wireless is offering families who want to keep the best contact, at the most affordable price, with their friends and family living out of the country. I highly recommend that each of you consider Cricket Wireless when you’re making your next decision and selecting a phone that’s going to work best for your phone- calling lifestyle.
