Keeping Up with Walmart’s Family Mobile Unlimited Plan!


I have a pretty darn busy lifestyle, and for years I have been trying to find the best wireless plan that will keep up with the demands of a city girl like me – without breaking the bank. As a blogger and NYC’er I’m constantly taking pictures and interacting on social media, and remaining in contact is crucial. Plus, I have a large family and with all of us spread out over the city doing different things (work, school, play) being able to check on each other and share our day is as vital as being able to do it in a cost-effective manner – which is why I’m completely excited about the Walmart Family Mobile Unlimited Pan!

With Walmart’s Family Mobile Plan I’ll be able to have access to unlimited talk, text, and web at $40 a month – no contracts, no stupid extra “surprise fees” (more on that later). Also you can add an extra line (up to five lines) for an additional $35 a month. The great thing is that suppose you really love your phone – well in some cases you can keep your old phone, buy a starter kit (only $25) and use it with Walmart’s Family Mobile service. There was no love lost between me and my former phone, so I was more than happy to get my hands on the LG Optimus L9 smartphone, lol!

Now about those “surprise fees” I was talking about, in the past three years I’ve went from being on contract to trying out MetroPCS’s unlimited plan, to using a prepaid cellphone. And let me tell you none of them were good – and until now I’ve been desperate to find a plan that can keep up with me. When I was on another unlimited plan I was told I had to pay a substantial fee (about half my bill then) for having a payment that was a day late (my only late payment, ever), and when I was on contract I had to pay a fee for canceling from my service providers sub-par service. For me, fees like this are the worst waste of money – which is why I decided to move to prepaid service, only prepaid service is just as expensive (minus the commitment of being on contract) and the actual service is awful, I mean reception is terrible and you are charged for everything. Once I had my phone in my pocket and I had accidentally somehow pressed the browser on, I didn’t notice until for about an hour – which had managed to deduct about $20 of airtime from my phone.

That’s why Walmart’s Family Mobile unlimited plan is like a breath of fresh air – Walmart is upfront about what you’re being charged for and why. My family’s monthly bill for using limited prepaid service runs us about $500-600 right now. With Walmart Family Mobile we could be paying only $180, which is at least a $320 savings! And with access to unlimited talk, text, and web! Now that’s a plan that can keep up with a bunch of chatty NY’ers like us!

The LG L9 Android has 4G & WiFi capability, a gorgeous 4.5″ qHD touchscreen – which is great for taking/viewing all those pictures I take, along with it’s 5 MP camera with flash. It’s definitely a model perfect for a person on the go, with connection needs like mine! I’m really excited about giving Walmart Family Mobile a try, and am in L-O-V-E with my new playa phone, lol! But seriously, the LG L9 is an excellent phone with a sleek exterior, and equally impressive speed – very professional and I definitely recommend it.

    Wow – that’s great savings! Sounds like the Walmart Family Mobile plan would be a great fit for your family. Mine, too, actually – I’ve been looking around for something more affordable, especially now that both kids are on smart phones. Unlimited and affordable sounds great!
