This is a sponsored post. I received either product or monetary compensation. However, all of the opinions about U.S. Cellular and these hot tech accessories for 2015 are mine. When it comes to buying holiday gifts, many of ours are tech related. As a blogger, my life is centered around all things in the technology arena. I cannot live without my iPhone 6, which I got from U.S. Cellular. I also have my DSLR camera, laptop and tablet. According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 38 percent of smartphone users play games on their phones daily, 49 percent check the latest news, 14 percent use GPS and 34 percent use their phone to help monitor their health.
My kids cannot go far without their iPhone, gaming systems or iPod. Because I have kids who are cellphone users, they have both signed the U.S. Cellular® Better Moments Parent-Child Agreement. This agreement is customizable and parents can use it to set certain parameters for phone use as well as driving responsibilities and limitations. Parents and teenagers can agree in writing that young drivers should not use their cellphones while driving. Be sure to read my post from last month, Safe Driving Phone Apps For Teen Drivers.
