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

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.

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.

- I hope this helps.

AT&T and T-mobile are both GSM and they many times share towers to help each other for coverage. I would just check the coverage map on the walmart site, or T-mobile web site.

Paying the final bill will be your biggest challenge with this plan. You'd be better off using prepaid cards.
