Stay connected and capture the moments that matter.

Being a grandparent is a joyful experience, but one of the hurdles can be staying connected with family, especially as a first-time grandparent. With an affordable smartphone and reliable wireless network, grandparents can easily capture and share the special moments that matter, no matter the distance.

Tips to stay connected with family:

1. Embrace the emoji and acronyms: Today’s young adults do everything on their smartphones and the savvy grandparent stays connected by communicating with them on their level. If your grandchild sends you a text acronym that you don’t understand, simply Google it! And embrace emojis! Not many of your relatives are accustomed to communicating in this manner, so don’t be upset if your long-winded text garners a thumbs up or heart response. Instead, opt to have fun with emojis yourself.

2. Strike a pose: Encourage your children to share each and every moment they capture of your grands with a quick picture or video text. Let them know that too many pictures of your new grandbaby are never enough! You can easily create your own printable photos, or even photo albums, using a variety of services that flawlessly transfer digital memories to print.

3. Social media can be a lifesaver: To maximise your ability to stay connected with your grands, you have to make the extra effort and master the types of communication that your children are most comfortable with. They are likely to include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and even Snapchat. Just use your smartphone to stay connected to your kiddos’ favourite social media networks wherever you go! You can keep on adventuring while also adoring the newest addition to your family.

4. Stay connected and capture the moments that matter: Whether you’re across town or across the country from your grands, it is essential to find a reliable way to capture and share the moments that matter.
