    Walmart New Family Mobile Phones and Plans

    The new Walmart Family Mobile will cost $45 for the first line (which includes unlimited calling and texting), and $25 for each additional line.  You can add up to five lines. The web portion of the plan will be a shared plan that rolls over from month to month. If you have a 200 MB allowance, and only use 50 MB in the first month, your 150 MB of leftover data are still available. Data allowances will be purchased on pre-paid data cards called WebPakTM cards. Calling to 14 major international cities (including cities in Canada, Mexico, and Japan) will be billed at 5-cents per minute (the $0.05 is billed against the value of your WebPakTM card). You will be allowed to activate any unlocked U.S. GSM cell phone on Family Mobile for a $25 activation fee and you can pre-pay your bill with a credit or debit card at any Walmart store nationwide.
    The Walmart Family Mobile includes phones like the Nokia 1661 for $35, Samsung t139 for $50, Samsung t749 for $150, and the Motorola Cliq XT for $250. There is also a Samsung slider-device, similar to the Gravity, available for $100. The Walmart Family Mobile allows you to bring your own phone for service as well.
