AT&T FamilyMap Review & $100 Visa Gift Card Contest

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and AT&T FamilyMap

Our family are already AT&T subscribers of a Family wireless plan. I was thrilled when AT&T came out with a new feature: FamilyMap. What a wonderful tool to locate family members, check to see if they made it home on time and many other uses. I was especially pleased to see the Scheduling feature which allows you to set certain locations where a family member should be certain times of day which you can then receive a text or email notification for. As a busy mom of a toddler and a teenager, I’m not always home in the afternoon when Teenager arrives so it gives me great peace of mind to know that I’ll automatically be informed when he arrives home, to another destination or if he just hasn’t made it home by a certain time. The day we started using this tool also happened to be the first day of school for Teenager. When I set this up it automatically sends a text message to the family members you assign the program to locate, thus Teenager was informed of this new feature. He phoned on his way home from school just as we were plotting his journey online. I said: “Oh, by the way we are following you online with the new FamilyMap feature from A&T!” His reply was a less than enthusiastic [insert annoyed teen voice here] “Yeah, I know.” I told him at least we weren’t installing a chip in his head or anything.
