I had a problem. I live out in the middle of nowhere, and I had a no-contract smart phone that worked great everywhere but my house. But I didn’t want to give up my cheap wireless plan for the expensive monthly fees that come with a contract phone. So about a month ago I decided to try out Walmart Family Mobile’s no-contract unlimited plan to see if I could get better service at my house.
Well, I couldn’t believe it when I actually got one whole bar! I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s one more than I had with my old service provider. And of course the further I get away from my house and the closer I get to town and civilization the better the service gets.
I know this makes me sound really old-fashioned and archaic, but I do still have a land line telephone at my house. But I wanted a smart phone that I could make and receive calls on when I’m out in the backyard. It’s summer, and I have two little boys. We spend pretty much all day from June to September outside. So being able to go outside with them and not worrying about missing a phone call is important.
I’m also prone to locking myself out of the house. I did that once, and even though my cell phone was in my pocket I still couldn’t call my husband to come home and let me in, because my old phone couldn’t get a signal. I have not locked myself out yet this summer, but if I do at least I’ll be able to call someone!
I did not have to give up my cheap wireless plan because Walmart Family Mobile costs just 40 bucks a month. And that’s for unlimited talk, text and web. Walmart Family Mobile is powered by T-mobile. I’ve been using the T-mobile Concord which is a great, affordable, basic smart phone. But if you need something a little more robust they have a big selection of smart phones to choose from including the popular Samsung Galaxy.
Account management is simple. I can access my bill at myfamilymobile.com and pay it online. Automatic payments are available also. They sent me a text as well to remind me to pay my bill which is a good thing considering that I can’t even remember to not lock myself out of my house.
If you want to save money with a cheap wireless plan and not sacrifice service or quality, Walmart Family Mobile is the right choice.
