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.

- I hope this helps.

you can .. in a way. the phone has to be unlocked for it to accept the Family Mobile sim card. If you dont have a unlocked phone, you can get it unlocked. You can call the MANUFACTURER of the phone to get the unlock code for the phone or (the better option) you can find the phone unlocked on ebay/amazon.

I have a factory unlocked HTC MyTouch 4g and I used to have a HTC Inspire 4g. I was really confused on the whole 2g, 3g, 4g debates and so I did my own research on the web as well as asking various people. Now, this is to the best of my knowledge, but I could be wrong. Family Mobile uses the T-Mobile towers but only has acces to the 3g networks. You receive 250 MB of 3g speeds each month included in the cost for 1 month, and after that it drops down to 2g speeds. Honestly, with most phones having wifi anymore, the network speed won't affect you that much unless you're on the road and are trying to find a hotel's number or something like that--even then it will still work, just a little slower. 2g speeds is plenty fast enough to stream music like from pandora, 3g is fast enough for movies, like from netflix, 4g is just the next step from there

Side note relating to the same issues:

I'm not sure where I heard this, or if there's any truth to it at all. I haven't even googled it to check it out, so take it with a grain of salt or google it to determine its validity. Here it is: I've heard that most providers with 4g don't actually have 4g because it's "not ready" for any network yet, Anytime you see/hear about a "4g phone" that just means its 4g "Capable" it does not automatically mean you have 4g speeds. It's like saying that your vehicle is a 200mph vehicle, that doesn't mean you always drive that fast, it depends on where you're at. Well, the "where your at" (or location) from that analogy represents the network operator (T-mobile, Family Mobile, At&T, Sprint and so on), depending on which one you choose will determine what speeds you can utilize.

For this question you might want to ask the Customer Care Reps (1-877-440-9758) and tell them the situation and the specs of the unit.. It sounds to me that it wont work..

Unfortumetly, you can not purchase the activation code seperate from the kit. You can try to activate them by calling Customer Service (1-877-440-9758) or also on the walmart.com.

Question

I went to purchase 3 activation kits in store and I was told I could only buy 2 at a time. Is this true?

I need three lines of service and wanted to buy all the activation kits together, but I was told I could not. This seems ridiculous to me. Has anyone bought more than two of the activation cards at one time? He said I would have to come back tomorrow and buy the third one separate.

That is SOMEWHAT true.. If the register did lock up after ringing up the second one, you can purchase the third phone/activation kit one after you pay for the first transaction. Then you can pay for the second transaction.. I guess the guy that helped you didn't quite know..

You call and setup your account to the sim card in the package and you will be able to use it right away. There is no $45 card, that is the monthly account price for service. It works as 1 person, 2 , 3, however many cards you purchase and activate.
