    Walmart T-Mobile (Family Mobile) Lifeline for low income $35/mo Unlimited everything?


    I'm a grad student with low income ($15k/yr) they approved me then told me buy a $25 family mobile at mobile then port my number to get the discount so end up with $35/mo unlimited talk/text/web

    Sound to good to be true? Well actually after you do all that and submit them your number, they tell you to go sign up with instead!

    Which means a different sim card than family mobile... So i did that, had to buy a new Tmobile sim card activation kit and internally..ported a 2nd time to Tmobile from Family mobile.....

    Only to find out from Customer Service theres a glitch on their site that prevents anymore customers from actually getting the discount. They won't fix it and they no longer have a phone number to even talk with someone...

    What's the better business bureau website or address local to their operation? I dont know what state Family Mobile Lifeline program is in since they swear they're only located 'online'

    data is throttled down with family mobile anyway. not worth the fuss.

    you get 250mb @ 1mbps "3g", then you're throttled down further to "2g" speeds
