As a parent the ‘should my child have a mobile phone’ decision is a biggie!
Of course we want our kids to be in reach and easily able to contact us if they need, but what about the risk of a whopping great bill?
Here’s what you need to know (and how to win 1 of 2 pre-paid Boost Mobile packs!)
The world is a different place to when we grew up! Forget phone booths or calling cards, kids these days are tech-hungry and the majority of teens own mobiles! As a parent this can be both confronting to consider yet a real blessing. It’s a popular debate in many homes – what age is the right age to have a phone? And how is the responsibility of being a phone owner best managed?
We can’t help you with the former – that’s entirely up to you – but when it comes to making phone ownership something parents and kids can agree on look no further than Boost.
Boost makes mobiles & data for your kids affordable
Running on the ultra reliable Telstra 4G network, Boost Mobile offer a range of affordable handsets that come with a pre-paid Boost SIM and $10 credit. In return you’ll receive:
- New phone number (or you can bring across your existing number)
- Unlimited calls and texts
- 1GB data for 7-days
With handsets ranging in price and totally affordable at $60 to $200, parents can then choose from a range Boost Mobile SIM recharge offerings. This format introduces kids to the privilege and responsibility of owning a phone whilst lowering the risk of going over-budget in terms of calls, text or data usage.
Boost prepaid takes the worry out of jaw-dropping budget blow outs
Striving to reduce this constant worry of excessive bills, Boost combines the flexibility of a pre-paid service with the freedom for parents to monitor and recharge online via an easy-to-use app. That’s peace of mind for mums and dads and just enough independence for our kids – perfect!
There’s great relief as a parent in knowing your kids are just the push of a button away. For those that may live between two homes, catch public transport to school, are heading off on school camp or even just learnt to drive, knowing that you can reach them (or importantly they can reach you!) is reassuring as we show our children some age-appropriate independence.
Being able to allow them this privilege without the worry of re-mortgaging due to a Snap Chat filter addiction or an epic Candy Crush marathon is an even greater feeling.
There’s nothing fun about bill-shock!
It’s hard allowing our kids grow up sometimes but Boost has made one part of letting go a whole lot easier.
If you’re thinking about a mobile for your kids as school returns this year be sure to explore the options with Boost. Here’s some crunched numbers to show you just how family-friendly a mobile phone can actually be…for example;
The $30 UNLTD+ SIM recharge offers unlimited calls and texts to standard Australian numbers plus 3GB standard data to use anytime and 1GB bonus data every weekend, amounting to 7GB of total data for 28 days.
When you do the sums, that’s seriously impressive value for just $30 month and up to 7GB of data, you really can’t complain (nor can the kids!)
Recharge packs range in value from $10 to $50, with data allowances increasing as the value does.
Boost’s UNLTD+ SIM recharge packs also work in any unlocked phone, such as the iPhone or Samsung they may already own.
