This guy? Deserves the world for Father’s Day.
He kept all three girls and gave E a bottle (even though she’s not a fan of a bottle), he got up with our oldest at 5:30am on vacation to help her catch a fish and he’s just an awesome dad (even when it’s time for discipline).
And yet, I have absolutely no idea what to help the girls get/give him. Like zero ideas. He pretty much never says things that he wants (except work clothes…lame!), so I can’t come up with anything. And, since we are all home, they won’t be making any crafts at school for Father’s Day (note to self: Friday needs to be an intense craft for daddy day).
If we were on the search for a new phone with a set-priced plan, we’d definitely be going the metroPCS route.
They’ve put together a great list of options for the different dads/men in your life.
For The Tech-Savvy Dad: The tech know-it-all, this dad browses retailers’ electronic sections like a kid in a candy store. His vice: Bragging about being the first to buy the latest gadget.
Our Pick: The LG Connect 4G. It’s a multi-tasking powerhouse that (tech speak alert) is powered by Android 2.3 with 4G LTE speeds and is packed with a 1.2-gigahertz dual-core processer and a front-facing camera. I tested this phone out and it’s very nice. You can see my LG Connect 4G review and sample pictures previously posted.
Bragging Rights: Lots of geek speak. And, for his less-tekkie friends, he can spout off score-by-score game plays or stream last night’s basketball game highlights with the ESPN app. Mom need not worry: cell plans start at $40 a month.
For The Music-Loving Man: He’s (unfortunately) not embarrassed to sing in the shower, or while cooking breakfast in the kitchen, or, ahem, while driving the fam around. He’d be lost without a beat – music gets him through the day. He’s the life of the party.
Our Pick: The slim and stylish LG Optimus M+. It’s a user-friendly phone, also with Android 2.3, that allows quick and easy sharing of photos, videos and songs with MetroPCS’ Rhapsody Unlimited Music.
Bragging Rights: With Rhapsody, on-the-go users get unlimited access to millions of songs, which means dad can brag about knowing the latest artist or band – and show off his savvy – with the click of a button. And it’s $60 a month for unlimited use.
The Text-Happy Husband: He’s all about simplicity – keeping things short and sweet. Why call when you can text? He wants to get right to the point – and slash seconds off his conversations.
Our Pick: The Huawei Pinnacle. With an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard, it makes easy, quick work of texting. Bonuses: A 1.3 megapixel camera with video capture, GPS technology and Bluetooth connectivity (in case he dares to make a call).
Bragging Rights: Conversations that last 30 seconds instead of 30 minutes. This quick-chatter option (unlimited talk text) costs just $25 a month.
