Can I switch my current t- Mobile plan to this new family plan?

answer 1
No you cant switch your T-Mobile plan for Family Mobile's plan because Family Mobile is in competition with T-Mobile... However, you can drop T-Mobile to Family Mobile.. or vice-versa.

- I hope this helps.

Yes, assuming you are leaving T-Mobile for this, T-Mobile does not offer a competitive plan, I tried to get them to match before switching, they would not.

Only if you are already on a prepaid plan. Even then you still need the activation kit.

No. I called TMobile and tried myself. They said they are two separate things and that they are not part of the Walmart family plan. So you would have to cancel and then move to this plan. Your phones will work though

Yes you can BUT you need to be out of your two year service aggrement to AVOID the termination fee (if you still have X-ammount of months left from the two year upgrade). If its been a long time since you did upgrade from them, the number transfer will be a breez.

A conditional yes, my T-Mobile phones (Nokia) worked with it, as did my unlocked iPhones. No guarantees on this one. T-Mobile will however unlock any phone you own, assuming you met your contract obligations, within 24 hours of requesting them to do so, then it will work with any GSM carrier guaranteed.

Ypu can use any tmobile phone or any other phone that has been unlocked and takes a sim card. Example: Att phone that is unlocked and now can be used on the tmobile network. As long as it takes a sim card and is unlocked, it can be used.

You can, as long as it is unlocked. You can call T-Mobile and ask them for an unlock code.

Yes! Just purchase a activation kit and find/have an UNLOCKED gsm (att, tmobile, ect. But NOT verizon/sprint because they are CDMA) phone that takes a sim card. After that, have the sim activated with a number and put it in and then your all set.

Ok if you have a webpak, that is only for the phone to get access to the internet, pix messages, ect. Bluetooth is a TOTALY different feature of the PHONE not the webpak and/or wifi. Bluetooth is mostly used for connecting Bluetooth devices for sharing. i.e. pictures, music, ect. to another phone, pc, and so on.. The webpak will not interfear with wifi. Wifi (on a compatible phone/device) will give the phone/ipad internet if around a wifi hotspot. If your phone cant access a wifi router, it cant use wifi. Only then you have to use the webpak..
Bluetooth and wifi are totaly different technology. I have not heard of a way to transfer bluetooth in to wifi or vic-versa.

you can .. in a way. the phone has to be unlocked for it to accept the Family Mobile sim card. If you dont have a unlocked phone, you can get it unlocked. You can call the MANUFACTURER of the phone to get the unlock code for the phone or (the better option) you can find the phone unlocked on ebay/amazon.

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.

Yes you will. When you call to activate the two phones, you will need to give them a 5 digit zipcode (also knows as PPU = Primary Place of Usage). That will give you your area code for the phone.

When you activate the activation card(s), the first line is the primary. You would get the unlimited talk and text right as soon you get the phone # to your new sim card. Or if you purchase a phone with the activation kit, you can use it right a way.. I hope this halps.
