You need to buy 2 activation kits, which are just envelopes with sim cards and instructions on how to activate those sim cards. Right now they are $25 per kit. It's the same as an activation cost through another carrier.

Yes... in a way.. Family Mobile has a feature to call any of these *14 countries: Mexico, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Columbia, Costa Rica, Argentina, Bermuda, and Belgium. BUT you HAVE to get a Webpak for you to use it. the charge to use it:
$0.05/minute to landlines
$0.05/minute to mobile phones
(internationaly calling)
... In other words, you just pay a nickel out of the webpak.

- I hope this helps.

*Important Note: Rates vary for all other countries. Go to myfamilymobile.com for complete details.

Question

Now that it's activated, when will it work?

It's been five hours. I was with T-Mobile w-no contract. Took my phone to walmart and got on family mobile. Now I can't make calls. When I try to make a call, it goes to Cust Serv and it's automated, doesn't recognize my account, and am unable to reach a live CSR. I tried to sign up on www.myfamilymobile.com and it also does not recognize my account. How long does it typically take to get functional?

typically it's right away active for at least out going calls. I would find a number for their customer service and call from another phone and keep dialing zero until you get a real person. Worst case, go into the store.

You pay for the activation kits that come with the card. You then have 30 days to pay for the minutes your given after you pay for activation. Yes, I would recommend getting the cards too. Because the kits come with the activation of the phone, but unless that $30 is paid for, per line, the phones will be shut off.

No. Walmart Family Mobile don't use prepaid cards. It is postpaid service. You would check your bill @ myfamilymobile.com to make payments (or 611) and to check your statements.

Yes you will. When you call to activate the two phones, you will need to give them a 5 digit zipcode (also knows as PPU = Primary Place of Usage). That will give you your area code for the phone.

No. It's more like an activation fee from other providers.
answered 2 years, 10 months ago

No. That is the activation fee for add-lines. The primary's activation fee is $45. The first month of service is depending on how many lines your adding. Then at the end of the month, you get billed. They dont send you the bill, they would email, txt saying you can pay. The examples of payment are : 1. Automatic payments(AutoPay)- You have the option to pay using a checking account, an ATM/Debit card or a credit card.

2. One-time payment – You can make an individual, one-time payment at myfamilymobile.com or through the automated phone system using a checking account, ATM/debit card, or credit card.

3. Pay at a Walmart location – You can make a payment at any Walmart location in the US. Use the Store Locator, to find a location near you. Please note: There is a processing fee of $0.88 for this payment option.

4. Pay over the phone – You can make a one-time payment or set up AutoPay through our automated phone system, or by speaking to a Customer Service representative by calling 1-877-440-9758 or dialing 611 from your Family Mobile phone. Please note: All payments made with a Customer Service representative require a $5.00 processing fee.

- I hope this helps.
