This tax season, AT&T is offering some major deals on their GoPhone. What better way to use your tax refund than to help stay connected with friends and family?
I got my first cell phone back in 1999, when I was a senior in high school. I was a new driver, and in anticipation of my upcoming 45 minute commute to college, my parents wanted me to be able to contact them in case of an emergency.
I wasn't allowed to use my cell phone to call and chat with friends. My parents made it very clear that it was an emergency-only type of thing (although my parents called me often, just to check in on me).
My cell phone was bulky and awkward, had a tiny black and white screen, and couldn't text message or go on the internet. Still, it could make phone calls and it came with the game Snake, which I thought was just about the coolest thing ever.
Most of my friends didn't own cell phones yet, but within just a few short years everyone I knew had one.
In today's society, almost everyone, from adults to children, has a cell phone. More specifically, most people have smartphones. A smartphone has features like text messaging, access to the internet, e-mail, and a world of third-party apps that extend the phone’s capabilities.
Given the convenience of smartphones, it is no wonder that everyone owns one. Checking your e-mail is as simple as a swipe on your phone. You can check in with your babysitter with a quick phone call on the go. Out of paper towels? Just pull out your smartphone and order more.
Parents buy smartphones for their children so they can always contact them in case of an emergency. Parents like being able to check in on their children wherever they are, just as my parents did back in 1999.
If you’d like to be better connected to the ones you love, treat yourself and your family to new AT&T GoPhone smartphones this tax season. With great prices, more choices than ever, no annual contract. and no credit check, AT&T GoPhone gives you flexibility, reliability, and great service all on the nation's best data network.
