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.

You can actually use an iphone4 on family mobile. BUT the process to do it difficult.. You NEED to CUT the sim card to do it. Since the iphone4 is a mini-sim and Family Mobile uses a standered size sim card. You can get the tools on ebay or you could be DARING and try to cut it-witch I would not recommend. Also, the iphone4 would need to be unlocked for you to use service..

- I hope this helps.

Question

what is this and how does it work?

I had to end our plan with Verizon. We couldn't afford it anymore. I have 3 phones. I looked everywhere to try and figure out what this card/activation kit does, what it is and how it works. If someone could tell me or direct me to a link that will explain it all, that would be great. The closest walmart to me is 45 minutes away (at least). I'd love to use my phones I have. I only want texting and calling for 3 people! THANKS MUCH.

This is unlimited minutes and texting. It's 45 for the first line, and 25 each after that. You don't need to go into a walmart store to get or activate the sim card or phone. You need however a GSM phone that is unlocked so it can work with another carrier's sim card. Many companies if you are out of contract will provide you an unlock code and tell you how to use it if you call them and tell them you are switching and taking your phone with you. When you get the sim card in the mail, just follow the instructions, it's really easy to activate.

Family Mobile is NOT pay as you go (that's Straight Talk). Family Mobile is postpaid. $45 for the first line then $25 for lines 2-5.

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.

It has unlimited talk and text but the web is another story. Even though they say unlimited, it is 2G speed, extremely slow. You have to purchase extra packs if you need decent internet speeds.

You t-mobile phone would work fine. You want to port your number when your open a new account with family mobile. You just give them some details about your tmobile account and they do the rest.

I wouldn't recommend this plan anymore though. Keep search there is other options that are better than this.

From what I have been reading online, the short answer is no, however, I've read and saw in multiple videos, forums, and Q/A sites that you can use a specially-designed whole punch or Sim puncher to turn a Regular Sim Card into a Micro-Sim card, and it has absolutely no effect on the chip itself. Now I'm not saying you should, but I'm saying you can give it a go. I hope that Answers your Question as I too am getting the Nexus 4. Best of Luck. :)
