Almost a month ago I wrote about my experience signing up for Walmart Family Mobile and finding freedom and great service with their unlimited talk, text and data with no contracts. Now that I've been using it for a while I can give you a little update on my experience with this cheap wireless plan.
While I intended to get this phone for my husband, I have to be honest. It hasn't left my side. He has a newer phone than me, and well, I just couldn't give up this awesome phone. Especially when my other phone hardly even works anymore. As a blogger, I feel the need to be connected. I even took it with me to a conference in Arkansas, and was able to get some great pictures using it.
A couple of weeks after activation, I received a text letting me know my bill was ready. When you get your bill, you have a couple of options. You can easily sign into your Walmart Family Mobile account online and pay with a credit/debit/atm card or checking account, you can pay over the phone (just dial 611), or you can go to your local Walmart and pay at the Customer Service desk if you prefer doing it in person. I like the convenience of paying online
While the data plan is unlimited, after you've used 1GB of data, your speed will be reduced. I managed not to get anywhere near 1GB, by using wi-fi as much as possible. If you're worried about your usage, you can always sign into your account and check on it easily.
So the burning question is, will I continue to use the Family Mobile service? Absolutely, positively, yes! It's the best wireless service I've tried. I still have a couple of months left with my current provider, but as soon as they cut me loose I plan on becoming a loyal Family Mobile customer. And my husband is planning on it as well, especially since a second line is only $35 a month. Of course we'll then have to share the 1GB of data, but I think we'll be okay since we're around wi-fi most of the time.
