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.

- I hope this helps.

A way to find out if it is unlocked is by installing a new SIM card in the phone. If the phone is locked, it will ask for a code to "unlock" the phone. If the phone does not ask for a code after installing the new SIM card, then the phone is already unlocked.

I suggest looking up YouTube videos on how that particular phone is unlocked. It give you ideas how a locked phone functions. Hope that hopes.

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.

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.

When you activate the activation card(s), the first line is the primary. You would get the unlimited talk and text right as soon you get the phone # to your new sim card. Or if you purchase a phone with the activation kit, you can use it right a way.. I hope this halps.

Ok I can give you advice to unlock the LG Optimus but it will NOT work with Walmart Family Mobile. Family Mobile uses a sim card and Sprint does not. the only carrier to use it with is Verizon or any other CDMA company.

I don't believe so, because you just buy the minutes and you use the minutes, then you buy more minutes. no need of a credit check.
