Yes. Be sure the phone is unlocked. I purchased mine "unlocked" from Ebay and it works great on the Walmart Family Mobile. You can purchase the code from an honest business from Ebay and look up the instructions on how to unlock the phone on YouTube. Hope that helps!

No. Since it is a T-mobile phone it does not need to be unlocked. But however, if it is unlocked, the only benefit is that you could use AT&T service when you don't have coverage with Family Mobile... Neat aye?

- I hope this helps.

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.

After you make the purchase of the phone, you get to use unlimited and text messaging. If you get the activation that comes with a webpack, then you can receive picture text-messages, otherwise without the web-pack text only messages. You also have till the end of the month to pay an additional service fee of $30 for the unlimited minutes after activation. They send you a text notifying you of your bill, and this has to be paid as well as the next month's bill to keep the phone active.

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.

Canada, USA and Mexico mainly. But if you are outside the USA you will burn up about $1.50 a min. Don't even think of using it much out of country.

Yes, I did it and it was very easy. You may need a code from your existing provider in order to allow Walmart to transfer the number, but that's easy to get. Once transferred, the number can be used right away for outgoing calls but you wont receive calls at your cell phone number for about 24 hours. They'll send a text message to let you know when your number is fully active.

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.
