You can use calling & text but not web. Just contacted T-Mobil and attempted to activate Blackberry 8320 and was told could not use web feature.

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.

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..

- I hope this helps.

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.

It should work with it. But all phones that are not Family Mobile will have different connectivity issues with the webpak ... Some phones will have connection issues with the internet and some wont. Hence, the Blackberries having connection problems with the webpak.

Probably not. The iPhone is usually locked. I guess you could jail break it and unlock it. You will have problems with MMS and you may have problems getting on the 4G network. Coverage will be spotty. I wouldn't do it if I were you.

Family Mobile's "Official" answer is that they do not support iphone 4 as it has a micro-SIM, not a standard size SIM, and that Family mobile doesn't have micro-SIMs. You can find SIM card cutters on amazon ($6 shipped) and other sites to convert the SIM. That would allow the phone itself to work for voice and txt. You will only be able to get EDGE (2G) data speed however as t-mob and AT&T use different frequencies on 3G. Here's a guide http://www.macworld.com/article/160588/2011/06/unlocked_iphone_4_tmobile.html
