I decided last year to change wireless carrier after my current one announced it would no longer grandfather the unlimited data plan for existing customers. Any changes made to our plan, including new phones, would result in being bound to these new terms. Since then I’ve been researching all the unlimited plans out there and was excited to get a chance to try the Walmart Family Mobile plan.
The idea was my husband would use the myTouch Android phone we bought as his first smartphone. With the savings offered by this cheap wireless plan, we could get two smartphones for less than what we currently pay now for one smartphone and one regular phone.
After two weeks, he decided he just doesn’t use the features or apps available in a smart phone so I got to try the MyTouch phone out.
Using the myTouch Phone
Once I got a hold of the myTouch phone (powered by T-Mobile) I set up my email and started loading my favorite apps onto it. It was a very easy process to connect my gmail and Facebook accounts. I added apps as I needed them so it was a gradual process to get them all installed.
I switched from an Android phone to the iPhone 4S nearly two years ago and I was impressed with how much lighter this phone was than my iPhone. Although they are about the same size, the physical screen is bigger on the myTouch.
I took this photo in the back patio with the 5 MP camera on the phone and liked how easy it was to take and the result. I’m not a great photographer so I need all the help I can get. Of course the camera can be used in video mode as well.
Managing My Walmart Family Mobile Account
I appreciated the text reminder to pay my bill and took advantage of the online account management capability. As you can see from the messages in the photo, it where’s parental controls can also be set up if you have kids on the account.
Final Thoughts About Walmart Family Mobile
This cheap wireless plan would save us about $45 a month after switching both numbers when our contract plan is up in December. There are so many things I could do with an extra $540 a year starting with freshening up our master bedroom with new drapes, bedding and paint.
What I wouldn’t do is pick an Android phone, but that’s not a problem. iPhones are one of the many phone options for the Walmart Family Mobile plans.
How much could you save with the Walmart Family Mobile Plan and how would you use that extra money?
