Question

Do you haveto purchase a plan with this sim or can you go month to month?

I spend most of the year overseas, and need a nice phone for maybe 2 months out of the year. Was going to buy a HTC G2 and put a sim card in it, but only if I can go month to month, no plan.

Walmart Family Mobile is a post-paid with no 2 year lock. So if you want Family Mobile service, you would pay $45 a month for unlimited talk and text. They DO NOT do month-to-month.

- 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 hope this helps.

It is called a "postpaid" account rather than prepaid. You can either buy a card in Walmart every month or just set it up through your bank so you never have to worry about losing your number. Minutes & text are unlimited.

Family Mobile does not use minute cards. Family Mobile is a post-paid service that does noty mail out the bill. There are several different payment options available:
"*1. Automatic payments(AutoPay)- You can set up AutoPay through your online account access at myfamilymobile.com With AutoPay, your monthly payments are automatically processed each month. 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."
For the bill in mail, "*No. All Family Mobile accounts automatically receive text message billing notifications. With this service, when your bill is prepared each month, you receive the total amount and date due via text message to your phone. If you require more detail, you can view your full bill online when you sign in to myfamilymobile.com. You can also choose to receive a bill reminder via email; you can select this option in your Profile on the myfamilymobile.com website"
The only one that is kinda like pre-paid is the webpak. You would use it when you need it and it does not expire!

- I hope this helps

Question

does the t mobile 4g system work off the web pack

i have an unlocked 4g phone and i was wondering if fulll use of the towers is allowed by t mobile so is it edge 2g 3g 4g

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.

The quickest way for you to transfer your contacts from the Verizon phone to Family Mobile is to Bluetooth it. Thats the fastest way. Otherwise you can manually enter each contact ;) ... but thats a pain.. But if the Verizon or Family Mobile or ether have the Bluetooth feature, then the manual way is the best option.

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.
