Thread Details

Here's the low-down on this deal:

New or existing Customers of Walmart's No-Contract Family Mobile service can get $100 of bill credits ($20 for 5 months) if they activate a Walmart Family Mobile smartphone from November 5th through January 6th of 2013. This has to be done in a Walmart and they will have to confirm the IMEI of the Walmart Family Mobile smartphone device in order for the bill credits to be issued.


Existing customers are apparently getting text messages regarding this. Can anyone confirm that part?

Anyhoo, here are the details:

Oh, one other thing, this is also compatible with the Galaxy S II deal for $299

Update: For new activations, the bill is pro-rated (as always), but the $20 a month discount will kick in within 45 days from the activation, so the second bill should have that discount applied.

For current users, it will still go into effect within 45 days of activating one of the FM Smartphones. After you put the SIM card in the new phone and register it on the network by making the phone call, I would probably call Family Mobile just to confirm that you are going to get the discount applied.

Either 611 from the phone or 1-877-440-9758

I JUST signed up this evening to get Family Mobile with this promo. However, their "Customer Service" number has apparently changed. When you dial 877-440-9758, you're told that the new number is 877-760-8760.

My service hasn't ported over yet at ALL. Althogh its been a few hours, the rep said they've never seen a customer leave the store WITHOUT it ported over before they leave. I, unfortunately am one who will apparently have to ride it out.

I'm worried, because I'm moving from Straight Talk, and have 3 "Service Days" left as of this evening. I hope my number moves before its too late! The customer service number for Walmart Family Mobile says they are "experiencing problems with our automated phone system" and disconnects me. I hope someone can help. Oh dear. .. what do I do??
