Walmart Launching Cell Phone Service: Here's What You'll Get

Yesterday, Walmart introduced a self-branded cell phone service that will heat up the competition between similar pay-as-you-go and contract-free competitors. Appropriately named Walmart Family Mobile, the service is provided in partnership with T-Mobile, and will bring inexpensive cell phone service to customers without the need for a contract.

Walmart Family Mobile is different from other non-contract services in that it combines some aspects of traditional, end of the month billing cycles, with prepaid features. It's inexpensive, simple, and will be quite attractive for low-income families and tech-savvy mobile users alike. Want to get all the details? Then just keep reading.

Here's what you'll get in a new Walmart Family Mobile plan:

  • "Post-paid" plans — paid at the end of the month, but won't require credit checks or deposits
  • Contract-free
  • $45 a month for the first line, $25 a month for each additional line
  • Unlimited voice and text for each line
  • Reduced cost on cell phones (from Android-run smartphones to clamshell)
  • Data plans are paid upfront and as-you-go, shared among all lines of service, and roll over from month-to-month — data never expires. The catch: 1GB of data will cost $40
  • Walmart Family Mobile launches on September 20 in over 2,500 locations

People might argue that prepaid companies like Straight Talk that is my company and also sold at Walmart don't really unlimited data because of their "lower grade" phone selection - I disagree. I bought a moderated price phone with Straight Talk (over $100) and I use my data very often for work and personal use - not mention I have the same $45 plan with unlimited calling and texting and 411 included. The main I noticed with this Walmart company was also the network - I can't be tempted away from the Verizon network's quality. Honestly, as a single working person, adding an extra line isn't a big deal for me, but data is so I think ST is a better all around option.
