Walmart Family Mobile Adds New $49.88/10GB Plan To Its Offerings
Walmart Family Mobile, a postpaid no-contract MVNO that operates on T-Mobile network, has improved its offerings with a new plan. Walmart Family Mobile has added a new $49.88 unlimited plan that includes unlimited talk, text and data with 10 GB at 4G LTE speeds.
In addition, the new $49.88 unlimited plan comes with one free Vudu movie per month, after each on-time bill payment. This Walmart’s video on-demand service is a limited time offer. The movie rental code comes in the form of $7.00 Vudu credit that must be used up in 30 days period or it will expire.
It also seems that Walmart Family Mobile
has discontinued the $24.88 plan that was offering unlimited talk and text only. Update July 3, 2016: the $24.88 unlimited talk and text plan is listed again on Walmart Family Mobile’s page.
After the latest change, Walmart Family Mobile’s plans include:
- $24.88 – includes unlimited talk and text
- $29.88 – includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 1 GB at 4G LTE speeds
- $39.88 – includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 5 GB at 4G LTE speeds
- $49.88 – includes unlimited talk, text and data with first 10 GB at 4G LTE speeds (new)
Data on Walmart Family Mobile plans are reduced to 2G after high speed data limit is reached in a month. Also, the plans come with Data Saver, well known T-Mobile feature (Binge On or Data Maximizer) that provides streaming videos at DVD quality (480p+). Data Saver makes data last three times longer than with normal video streaming. The feature can be turned off at any time if users want to watch video at higher quality. This offer is available for a limited time.
Customers can add up to five lines with a $5 discount per each line. They can activate service on their own phone, T-Mobile compatible or unlocked GSM phone, or they can purchase one from Walmart Family Mobile. Customers are required to purchase a $25 Starter Kit for each line of service. The monthly plans don’t include taxes and fees so additional cost of $0.97 Regulatory Programs Fee per line and taxes that range from 6% to 28% apply. In addition, off network voice and SMS roaming is included while data roaming is not.
