You will get 4G service (total of all phones on your plan) of 2mg, then unlimited EDGE internet.

This will also depend on your service area, some areas get 4G while others get only EDGE while others may not get internet at all. I have had pretty good luck getting 4G most of the time.

You can but beware that if you want to transfer more than one phone number that they MUST be the same area code.

For some reason they say that their system is not updated enough to handle more than one area code per account.

I don' work for Walmart but I read in their product literature that when you buy the STarter Kit - You can call them or get online, and when you do your activation, just give them your OLD NUMBER and ask them to transfer it to your new phone.

Just MAKE CERTAIN the person answering your call speaks and Understands your ENGLISH. FAMILY MOBILE says it's powered by T-mobile MOBILITY but it isn't the same company as the T-Mobile here in the USA - MOBILITY was sold off a long time ago but they still keep the T-MOBILE name because they use the same cell Network & Towers.

It includes unlimited web data: the first 1GB will download at 3G speed but after that will slow to 2G, but you will continue to have data, but ata lower speed. You can buy data to have more GBs with more speed.

I was told that the phone either has to be a Family Mobile phone purchased from Walmart, or an unlocked phone that uses a SIM card. I've had my first gen Samsung Galaxy S I purchased through T-Mobile for a couple years now. I'm assuming it was before they started locking phones for specific providers. I got the Family Mobile SIM card and it worked fine. You should check and see if the phone is locked to be used specifically with T-Mobile, since Family Mobile is technically a different service provider, or make sure it's unlocked aka "jailbroken".

Question

So I just bought a new phone from walmart yesterday and also got the activation kit that came with the sim card, called the number...

And the phone is now activated and can receive and send calls and texts. The thing is, I haven't payed a bill yet for the service which I'm going to pay with cash in the store. I was just wondering how long I'm able to use the minutes/mms service that came with the activation kit before I need to go to the store to pay the $45.

You will be billed monthly, post-use, but there is no harm in paying for the service a little early if that fits your finances.

I found out that family mobile is post paid not prepaid and I got billed after my billing over. You get a text msg telling you the amount. But my bill was 53.55 for the $45 plan since it was post paid and not prepaid.

Yes, if you are leaving T-Mobile as I did and your contract is up (I had to buy mine out) then you can use your phones and put them on the service. It is MUCH more economical with Unlimited talk and text. It was still cheaper for us, even buying out the contract. The phones work fine they just have a new SIM card which you buy at the store in the activation kit for $25 a piece, you can port your number or get a new one.

You can port your telephone number in when you activate your SIM card using the activation kit you buy for $25. at the Walmart store. If you need or want a new number one would be given to you by the activations system or representative a the store or on the phone.

The phone must be unlocked and GSM, so that you can install the SIM card that comes with the started kit. I understand that you can't use Blackberry phones as they're not compatible with Family Mobile.
Cheers.
