I have been looking for the lowest priced rate plan for wireless service for my family. My main objective was to find an unlimited plan that offered the best wireless service for our needs. My quest for a cheap wireless plan brought me to Walmart. Great news! I believe that I have succeeded in securing the lowest priced rate plan! I'm thrilled to have found an affordable service and smartphone at great price without a contract.
I'll be honest - we already have a competitively priced plan for our existing service. My husband gets a discount through his employer. Our cost is comparable to the Walmart Family Mobile Unlimited Talk + Text: $29.88/mo. for primary phone,$24.88/mo. for each additional phone. We do pay a little bit more than that. So we could save a little (because every little bit counts) with Walmart by switching over and staying with talk and text OR we could save ALOT and go with talk, text and web. We have 3 lines of service on our plan. At this time we are no longer under contract. We have been avoiding upgrading to smartphones because of the increased costs and having to renew another contract. The cost alone to move to talk,text, and web with our current provider would be (at least) an additional $40 per phone per month. Unlimited web is NOT an option - so it is possible that our bill could get way out of hand. To get our family up to speed on a smartphone program the Walmart Family Mobile plan could easily save us at least $120 a month with their 39.88/mo. plan!
The Walmart Family Mobile myTouch 4G Cell Phone phone is competitively priced at $149.88. Thanks to Rollback pricing we purchased one for $129.88. We also purchased a $25 Walmart Family Mobile Starter Kit. We opted to set up service from home since we had a little one who wasn't feeling too well as well as a tired mommy and daddy who put in a full day of work at the office. Activating the phone from home was quick and easy! To activate my phone and for online account management all I had to do was visit: myfamilymobile.com. If you are more comfortable having it set up for you at the store that is also an option.
We have stayed with the same carrier for YEARS and would toss around the idea of upgrading. Being the practical couple that we are - we have been able to make do with "regular" cell phones. I am pleased that we can easily add data WITHOUT increasing our monthly expenses! We can still be practical! I will be testing out the phone and service - we just might break up with our current carrier for good!

I'd love to know about your experiences! Since we have never been on a data plan we can only go by what friends and family have shared. I have heard horror stories about their monthly cell phone bills! If you are willing to share the MOST that you've ever paid for you phone service I'd like to hear it! How much is your smartphone & service worth to you? So far I had been living without one but have heard that it can become a necessity. Do you think that I'll become addicted? In an upcoming post I'll definitely share my journey!
