Prepaid Cell Phones: A Cheaper Alternative to Tablets

As an autism mom, I'm grateful for prepaid cell phones, not for the reason they are intended for...but yes, oh so grateful.
My sister came to my house one day bearing a gift, a prepaid phone.  It was one of the phones that didn't have a contract, etc.  Anyway, she told me how I didn't even have to pay for monthly minutes because I didn't have to use the actual phone.  I could just turn on the wifi and download my kids games and youtube on there, and then they wouldn't try to steal my phone all day.  We also wouldn't have to dole out a hundred bucks every time one of them decided to throw a tablet or watch youtube in the bathtub.
So, when you are starting up these cell phones, just let them run their attempts to activate your phone. (They usually take 5 tries and then give up), and then go on your merry way with an affordable,  fun-filled distraction for your kids.
My latest purchase is my favorite.  I found a WATERPROOF prepaid phone (Kyocera Hydro Prepaid Android Phone) for $20.  So now, the only reason I will have to replace them is for cracked screens!

  1. Can I just laugh for a minute? You are so hilarious, with such experience as your's, you should have a weekly sitcom. The phone sounds great and I think I need one because I keep dropping mine in my dinner plate, but I'm all thumbs. Good advice. I will check into it.
