Exciting news! As most of you have probably already heard, T-Mobile is breaking into the residential phone market. Their new plan is called T-Mobile@Home and for $10/month you’ll get free nationwide calling, call waiting, caller ID & voicemail. You’l even be able to keep your same home phone number! Not a bad deal, huh?

To celebrate this exciting venture, T-Mobile is giving away a brand new home worth $300,000 to two unbelievably lucky people. One winner will be announced on ABC’s The View and the second on T-Mobile’s mirco-site. There are other prizes, too, including funds to pay your current mortgage for a month! You have until July 29th to get your entries in.

Now, how is An Island Life involved in all of this? Glad you asked.

The wonderful people at Digital Influence Group (DIG) have asked me to host a little giveaway of my own to help spread the word about this amazing venture. From now until July 28th, you may enter to win daily T-Mobile prizes such as t-shirts, candles, blankets, coffee mugs, and many other cool items. Then, once a week for the next 2 weeks, a random person will be selected to receive either a $100 T-Mobile gift card or $100 to Crate & Barrel. All these prizes have been reserved and will be awarded to An Island Life participants. How cool is that?

To enter, simply check out the widget at the end of this post and answer a simple question. You must submit your answer via the widget in order to be eligible. Don’t forget to enter your name and email address so I can contact you in case you win. **Your personal info will NOT be sold to third parties.**

And while you’re there, at the bottom of the widget is a link to the T-Mobile site where you can enter to win a brand new home. Hey, someone has to win it . . . it might as well be you! Oh yeah, and if you do win the home, I expect an invitation to the housewarming party!

    How cool!!! I answered with they pay their own bill;)

    Lori aka A Cowboy’s Wife’s last blog post..No, I’m not pregnant, just fat!

  2. Rhonda Mason says:

    Phone is an earned priviledge around here. If they do their chores and keep up grades then the phone is earned ( with minute restrictions), if not the priviledge is gone!

  3. Madonna says:

    Kids assume that we – the parents – owe them everything. WRONG. Everything in this house is earned. The cell phone is one tool used to get positive results from negative behaviors .

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    My children are teens so my answer was that I showed them how to check their monthly minute usage and switched to T-Mobile hot spot at home to help conserve minutes.

    What a great giveaway! I’m not a member of T-Mobile, and the home give away is only for customers… but I did give my phone tip :)

  7. Renee says:

    I wrote that she has to ask permission to use the phone and doesn’t have her own phone yet.

    she won’t be getting a cell phone from me…if she wants one, she can pay for it herself.

    she isn’t allowed to answer the phone unless she knows the person on the caller id…otherwise seeing as she can’t be trusted to take a decent message, leave it to the machine!

    What I need to do is teach her how to use my cell phone in case she needs to call from it (emergency or if I want her to call DH for me.)

    Renee’s last blog post..Off to the hills!

    I said that they always had to have permission,always to be polite and never give out personal info. Now I’m just waiting to move into that new home.

    This is a cool widget, I said first off with my supervision, secondly the phone is a privilege not a toy, and third with an alloted time frame!

    I didn’t even get to use the phone until I was 17.. so kids these days tend to have much more freedom.. it seems.

  14. Vickie Couturier says:

    My kids learned to write down messages an that we pay the bills an our phone calls take first priority over any other calls,an to be polite while on the phone

  15. Rimanda G. says:

    Children practice what they see an hear,if you show courtesy on your phone most likley your children will too!!

  16. ciara says:

    i entered…we limit phone usage, no internet or texting on the phones, no giving personal information to anyone they/we don’t know, and they have to clear who they give their phone #s to. we have a lot of phone rules, but you were limited to 140 characters! LOL

    I have a baby boy so I have not had to handle this situation yet, but I believe kids should have set hours to use a phone and watch tv.

  18. Amy L says:

  19. Stephen Albert says:

    Crate and Barrel is fun

  20. Kimberly @ AllAboutKimberly says:

    What a super contest. We would LOVE a home! I’m so impressed that they joined with you too. I’d love to know how to start getting sponsors for contests like you do. I’m VERY impressed. I know this one doesn’t earn extra entries, but I’m blogging about this one too. I’ve got it scheduled to post Saturday.

  21. BrendaLea says:

    What great prizes. I like to teach by example.

  22. Judy Zerbe says:

    I would instruct them on proper useage, monitor them for a while and remind them.

  23. amy b says:

    i liked the idea that they pay their own bill! I thin every kid on my street 7 and older has their own. Geez!

  24. Lisa M says:

    I went over the plan with me daughter. I showed her how to check her minutes. She know when her free mins start. Plus, unlimited text for teens is always a plus :>

  25. Tammy Kennedy says:

    wow, we pay over $40.00 per month and do not have long distance. All our older children, our parents, grandchildren live 1200 miles away so we buy phone cards since giving up the cell phones. I will be checking into this since I hate using phone cards. Thank you for giving all of us this useful information. Also thank you for having contest so that i have a chance to win some much wanted prizes.

  26. marybeth i. says:

    crate and barrel! we are moving into a new home and this would be so helpful.

    I am already a subscriber. I was receiving the feeds but have not received one in a while.

  27. Stephanie Bruce says:

    My boys are only 3 and five right now so they dont have their own cell phones, however they do know how to use mine. Instead of teaching my VERY talkative five year old to call 911, i taught him how to call grandma (hubbys mom)or grandpa (my dad) or daddy in case of an emergency. They are all listed on speed dial so he knows daddy is two, grandpa is three and grandma (his favorite) is four PLUS the green key.

  28. Shakeia Rieux says:

    i would like to win either one

  29. Rickey Moham Jr says:

    WIN WIN WIN!!!
