Walmart today announced it will launch Walmart Family Mobile powered by T-Mobile, a new brand of post-paid cell phone service that offers the best value for unlimited talk and text.
Walmart Family Mobile is a monthly post-paid plan available without a contract or multi-year commitment. The 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.
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.
Data plans are also available. Activated accounts come with a free preloaded 100MB WebPak -- which provides access to the internet -- for every line of service. The WebPak is shared among all lines on an account and unused data never expires. Additional WebPak refill cards are purchased upfront in stores or online at www.walmart.com/familymobile, ensuring there are no overage fees or monthly data fees. The WebPak can also be used to make international calls to several countries for as low as 5 cents per minute, as well as download ringtones, games and other apps.
This news follows several rumors which suggest that T-Mobile will be the next US carrier to get the iPhone.
