What is Family Mobile, anyway?
Family Mobile is a cell phone service offered by the Walmart corporation. While it is not really that big of a name in the cellular or telecommunications industry, their service actually just runs through T-Mobile, which means than anyone who is using a Family Mobile plan from Walmart is actually just using a relabeled T-Mobile plan. For more information, visit the What is Family Mobile? page.
So it is basically T-Mobile service under the Walmart brand?
Yes, but as you will see from the following questions, it’s still going to all be handled by Walmart. You will just be tapping into T-Mobile’s cellular network – that’s about as far as that connection goes.
How can I create an online log in for my Family Mobile account?
