My family uses a lot of data. In fact, our past provider (think three letters) loved to send us fun text messages about how we were nearing our limit. That was code for, get ready for additional charges. I’m a bus rider. I enjoy riding the bus to and from work because it gives me some extra time to think and surf. Thus, with my old provider, I got charged…..often.
I finally switched to Walmart Family Mobile and I couldn’t be happier. My old bill for my wife and I was $227 a month. You read that right. That translated to over $110 PER LINE. I had had enough and am so happy to partner with Walmart Family Mobile. My wife wasn’t sure about the service at first. We live in the Cincinnati metro area and I care about two things, when I made a carrier switch:
- Can I make a reliable call? (good reception)
- Can I surf the internet at a fast speed? (ie don’t want dial up)
After making the switch, I decided to test out my internet connection. I didn’t notice any difference; in fact, I felt the internet was a little faster. As a food blogger, I surf food blogs and Pinterest A LOT. Watch my little test:
I love my new @FamilyMobile @samsung Galaxy phone!! Just as fast and HALF the price! #MyDataMyWay #ad pic.twitter.com/BZvaCrzHx3

With Spring in full swing and May just arriving, I get out of the house more frequently. Walmart Family Mobile and my new Samsung Galaxy S3 are fantastic. They are reliable, easy to use and most of all save me so much money. My cell phone bill has gone from $227 to roughly $60. (This $29.88/month, for the first line, with Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan includes up to a gig of 4G LTE data.)
With all of this extra money in our budget, my wife and I decided we want to go on vacation at the end of the year, so after reading the reviews of UAE online casinos, we are placing the $167 we save every month from switching into a vacation fund. A 5-day cruise to the Caribbean for both of us costs roughly $900. By October, we’ll have enough to go on another vacation simply because we switched carriers.
Trust me, cruising is fun. Private islands are great.
If you are thinking about making the switch, DO IT. Whether it’s surfing the Internet in the grocery store, trying to find ingredients for an interesting recipe or calling my wife to chat, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Walmart Family Mobile are exactly what I need and more. I couldn’t be happier.
Check out all the details on how you can make the switch (and keep your number like I did) here.

I saw this deal the last time I was at Walmart. I am thinking about changing from Verizon Wireless Prepaid. Good post!

At this point, I cannot figure out why more people don’t use the Walmart Family Plans. So affordable and the phones are a one-time charge. The selection is decent too.
Wendy Topper says
What a great deal. I am guess I should check to make sure the reception in my area is good enough before going too far with this deal. Thanks for sharing your experience!
Adam Deluca says
I switched to Verizon Wireless prepaid last year and thought they had the best deal at the time. After reading through this, I am thinking of switching as it would save me about $20 more per month for roughly the same data.

I wonder if this program has coverage in my area. I live in a very hilly part of a National Forest and most cellular systems can barely reach us. I am going to look into it, because the cost savings would be a bonus.
