Check your device’s compatibility

You can definitely get an amazing new phone for a budget-friendly price at Walmart Family Mobile, but you can also keep the device you already know and love. First, check to see if your existing phone falls under one of the following BYOP-friendly categories:

  • Unlocked GSM phones that operate on the 850 MHz or 1900 MHz band
  • T-Mobile-compatible phones

Then, visit our BYOP Activation page and click “Get Started,” where you’ll be walked through the process step-by-step.

Activate your phone

Prepare to reap the benefits of a contract-free wireless experience.

After you’ve determined that your phone is Walmart Family Mobile-friendly, you’ll need to purchase an activation kit, which is unlikely to break the bank at $0.99. You can also purchase a BYOP package at your local Walmart store. Included in each kit is a SIM card specifically catered to the type of phone you’re using, which enables you to activate the device with Walmart Family Mobile, and thus leads you to the next step: service plan selection.

Choosing your service plan might initially be overwhelming due to the sheer affordability offered by our array of options, but once you’ve settled upon something that meets your family’s usage requirements, you’ll be ready to switch.

After your SIM card is installed and your service plan is purchased, all that’s left is activation, so follow the relevant instructions on our activation page, and prepare to reap the benefits of a contract-free wireless experience.
