A few weeks ago I shared will you all that I would be testing out Walmart Family Mobile and I promised to let you know what I thought about it. Did it keep up with my busy Orlando vacation/work trip? You’re about to find out! 🙂
To recap, I’m pretty over paying $125 per month to Verizon for my limited single line service. My contract with them ended earlier this year so I’m looking for a new, more affordable option that still allows me to stay connected.
I am really excited about the pricing of the service that Walmart Family Mobile offers and I love the fact that it is contract free. I think that these are two great features to help families to save. I also think it makes the service perfect if you have a teen or a pre-teen that you’ve been wanting to get a phone for.
Walmart currently offers two types of plans on Rollback:
$39.88 for unlimited talk, text and web
$29.88 unlimited talk and text
Again, neither of these plans require a contract so there is no commitment! They also offer online account management on the My Family Mobile website,
The phone prices are not bad either with Concord phones on Rollback for $79.88 (was $99.88) and MyTouch devices for $129.88 (was $149.88).
One of my biggest priorities for the new phone and service was for it to keep up with my need to stay connected with the Bargain Blessings team back in Colorado while I was away. I’m happy to report that it totally did! The service worked great and I loved that it offered me a variety of ways to connect – talk, text, web. Not only that but it was really nice to not have to worry about going over my allowed usage since everything is unlimited.
I did notice that the download speed was sometimes a little on the slow side, but for the over $85 per month savings I think that is something I’d be willing to deal with.
I also used the phone to snap some pictures to remember the trip by and as you can see from above they turned out great! It was super easy to upload my photos to Facebook and also to text them to family and friends. Hey, it isn’t every day that I get a view like this out my window – I had to share while I could. 😉
Overall, I am super happy with my new phone and the new service. If it can keep up with me on a busy vacation, I know it will allow me to stay connect while back home in Colorado!
