Remember awhile back when I talked about exploring some cheap wireless plans with the Walmart Family Mobile plan? Well, it’s been about a month now, and I thought I’d add an update about how it’s been going. Truthfully, I can’t say the service is any better or worse than what I have going already with Verizon, only the price is – Way less!
My service with Verizon costs me 74.99$ a month, multiply that by 2 – for both myself and my husband, and that’s 150$/per month. With Walmart’s family mobile program, it costs me way less – coming in at 40$ per month. It was super-easy to sign up – all I needed was a driver’s license and no credit check, so that mean anyone can apply! The bill is all taken care of online – everything is paperless! So I decided to try it out for a month to see if the service is worth the trouble to switch to – and I thought the service provided by Walmart Family Mobile was great!
I love that my service was pro-rated for what I had used for the month… No unpleasant surprises here – everything was as upfront as it had claimed, right from the beginning. See all the phones and options that I saw when I went shopping for cheap wireless plans at Walmart.
The nicest thing about this whole experience, was not noticing a big difference in service provided. I can still make all the phonecalls I want with minimal call drops, and check my email as often as I like. It was abit of a learning curve to get used to the android, after years of loyal iPhone use, which is why I think I will need the special iPhone starter kit when I finally switch to the Walmart Family Mobile plan.
Overall, I thought the service offered by Walmart family mobile to be superior quality for the price. It’s defiantly going to be a go-to plan I will look at when I can get out of my Verizon contract without too much penalty.
