This seems to be a good deal, but with data and internet being such a huge part of cell phone usage these days... I'm not sure this will be as successful as they hope...
I don't know anyone who doesn't access the web/email, etc. via their phone...
But this might be a much better alternative for some of the elderly who want a phone for emergencies, but don't want all the frills. We all know Cricket, TracFone, etc. are well... rip-offs.
Get some veggies and buy a cell phone, all from Walmart in one stop...Not sure if this is a good thing or just plain scary!
I'd buy it if I was back home in the States. I like that it includes 100 mb of data, and I could use it in any phone I want cuz it is GSM. (well, you know what I mean)
As far as buying fruit alongside my phone, its only convience. I don't have a problem with it.
Actually not scary at all. A friend of mine just got "Family Mobile" through Walmart and it works pretty good. He's very happy with it so far. Since it used T-Mobile's network, coverage and phone selection is decent.
The straight talk plan at walmart is awesome! I have it for my business account and it gets wonderful service. I still cannot believe it is only 45$ for unlimited texts/minutes.
I like choice, but I always find some fault with something :loony:
WalMart: Runs on T-Mobile which fails in my apartment
Straight Talk: Loving my Verizon Droid and there is no such device on ST
Boost/Virgin: runs on Sprint only and it fails in my apartment
Metro/Cricket: no service within at least 150 miles of my location
Oh well, at least all places aren't like mine
This new service offered by Wal-Mart can be a great deal for those looking for multiple lines and aren't very much of data users. However for indivdual lines you would be better off with Straight Talk which uses Verizon or AT&T's Network, both offering superior coverage over T-Mobile's network.
