Walmart Family Mobile is a new monthly post-paid plan available without a contract or multi-year commitment, and offers according to Walmart a family of three savings of up to $1,200 per year compared to AT&T and Verizon national unlimited talk and text plans.
The Walmart mobile phone service will be provided by T-Mobile over its nationwide network, and will be sold exclusively by Walmart in nearly 2,500 stores starting Sept. 20.
Walmart Family Mobile was designed with families in mind, and offers the easiest, most affordable way to enjoy high-quality post-paid service. Every line has Unlimited Talk & Text, so customers can be assured of no surprise overages when they receive their bill each month. The first line of service is just $45 per month, and each additional line is only $25 per month. In addition, Walmart Family Mobile has phones for the whole family from Samsung, Motorola and Nokia, including phones with the Android Operating System, QWERTY keyboard, touch screens and other features. Since there is no annual contract, customers can upgrade anytime by purchasing a new handset with no extra fees or contract commitment.
This new Walmart cell phone service is worth checking out if you need your whole family to have cell phones, but then AT&T and Verizon will not just sit there and watch Walmart take their business. Expect counter offers.
