Conserve your data each month with help from these tips and tricks.

Walmart Family Mobile plans come with the 4G LTE† data you need, but it’s still a good idea to keep an eye on your usage. That’s because when your high-speed 4G LTE† data runs out, your phone switches over to slower 2G* data. To make sure you’re covered all month long, start practicing some of these tips.

Monitor your data

You can monitor your talk, text, and data usage from your Walmart Family Mobile account. Log in every once in a while to see how much you’ve used so far. That can help you gauge how much 4G LTE† data is left. For example, the $24.88/month no-contract service plan offers 2GB of high-speed 4G LTE† data, then transitions to unlimited 2G* data. If you find yourself needing faster speeds around the clock, upgrade to one of the other Walmart Family Mobile plans.

Reduce time spent streaming

By reducing how much you stream, you can stretch your data, and your dollar, further.

Every time you stream from your device, you’re using up data. This includes listening to music apps, watching YouTube videos, and watching Netflix. By reducing how much you stream, you can stretch your data, and your dollar, further.

Use the Walmart Family Wi-Fi app

Do you have the Walmart Family Wi-Fi app? You can download it for both Apple and Android devices. The app finds, manages, and connects automatically to nearby Wi-Fi hotspots. This is important, because using Wi-Fi helps save on cellular data. So anytime you’re out and about, look for the nearest hotspot to connect to.

Better data at better prices

Non-stop nationwide 4G LTE† coverage is just one of the many perks of being a Walmart Family Mobile customer. Ready to switch to Walmart Family Mobile? Start by selecting the phone you want to use, whether it’s a new phone or one you already have, then pair it with a no-contract service plan that works for your budget and lifestyle.

†To get 4G LTE speed, you must have a 4G LTE capable device and 4G LTE SIM Card. LTE is a trademark of ETSI. Actual availability, coverage and speed may vary. During periods of congestion, Walmart Family Mobile customers may notice reduced speeds versus carrier branded customers.
