I need a price check in aisle 2 for a Walmart mobile phone plan, located in between adult diapers and video games. Just when you thought Walmart sold every fu*king item and product in the galaxy, now you can purchase a wireless plan under their very own Walmart brand. Walmart will be utilizing the T-mobile network but will be offering an unlimited calling and text plan for about $45 plus tax. You can look for this service in the upcoming weeks in your area.
Like most cellular plans you Walmart Mobile bill will be due at the end of the month and you can also add an additional line for $25 a month. I think 25 dollars a month is a bit steep , especially for Walmart where you are supposed to save money and spend less. The positive aspects of the Walmart mobile plan is that it is contract free, their arent any early termination fees, and no credit check requirements.
The smart-phones available for the Walmart plan are very limited right now but expect this to change as demand increases,( iPhones? – i highly doubt it).There is also a limitation in place when using or trying to unlock a Walmart Network phone with other providers, you’re pretty much lock in to their network only. Keep in mind with T-mobile and At&t service you can unlock your phone and use it on both networks and overseas, the limitations of the Walmart plan is another buyer beware depending on your needs. The overages and data fees are also another side effect to a good idea but the overall plan will definitely save you a nice chunk of cash in the end.
