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.

- 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.

Yes it will. I have the Mytouch 3g Fender edition and my wife has the Mytouch 3g. Since they are T-mobile phones they dont need to be unlocked!

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.

It will work with any UNLOCKED t-mobile phone. If you are still a t-mob subscriber call them up, tell them that you need the unlock code for the phone as you will be travelling abroad and want to use a prepaid SIM from there, and they will send you the unlock code by email in a day or so. Follow the instructions in that email to unlock the phone. Note that this is for postpaid not prepaid - dunno if they give out unlock codes for prepaid phones or not.

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.
