With guns, gang robs grocery store Around 15 robbers armed with rifles and machine guns stormed at dawn yesterday, the superstore Walmart Gaston Avenue Vidigal, Vila Leopoldina (west side of SP-Brazil). The site is opposite the 91 º DP (Ceagesp), who was on duty at the time of the robbery. No police noticed the action. In less than a month, at least three similar actions occurred in the capital. According to police, around 1:30 am yesterday, the gang approached the gate of the store in a cargo truck and other vehicles not reported. The guard was overpowered. Once you have access to the site, the group took hostage 28 employees. They used torches to pry open two ATM machines and even led flat-screen televisions and computers, among other electronics. There were no customers inside the supermarket. The action lasted about two hours. The alarm was triggered after the robbers fled. No one was injured. Until early last night, neither the banks nor the hypermarket in charge of ATMs had released the amount stolen by the gang. And I repeat now what they will do DISTRICT make their stupid questions and ask why not pressed the panic and then have all the LPs though ????? I've said and I repeat to invest in security because we are not trained and not registered as safe. Again where’s security?

Then, on a hunch, I bought a 12.00 phone at Walgreens that was an on-sale T-mobile prepay. Threw away the chip, bought the 25 additional sim for my daughter, and presto! works like a charm. There is an 'OTHER' selection you choose when adding a phone, and I don't think it matters what phone you have as long as it has a sim. So, since my kids lose their phones all the time, 12 bucks gone isn't gonna break me. And 25 a month for unlimited texting and phone is what any kid would kill for.

My contract will be up in one week with ATT. I would like to keep my phone. I wonder if that would work, or maybe not because its att. Does anyone know? I am tired of paying over $100 a month for 700 shared minutes and the 1500 message plan. I only use about 250, but there was no in between 200 -1500. also, is it true that you cannot transfer your current number? I am considering the family plan.

Actually my wife and I switched from T-Mobile plan to save money. Her phone ported over first day and mine wasn't working. We called customers service and they put in another request to port the number over and had it working with in an hour. This plan uses T-Mobiles cell towers so coverage is good. Only problem so far is their webpack doesn't seem to work with my t-mobile Dash phone. I'm sure there is a fix, but haven't had time to play around with finding one yet. Anyone had any similar issues not being able to access the web? I just signed up and “yes” Walmart employees do not know what they are doing.

He uses the phones for work and we noticed that if he went within 50 miles out of a major city, the phone simply would not work, all we could do was txt and since my husband uses the phone for work that just wouldn't do well. But since we got this Family mobile thing we have had no such problems, he gets service anywhere, he even went out of state, more than 100 miles out and he could still make calls. But here is my question...Does anyone know if the provider will work with tmobile phones?? The phones for the plan are a little overpriced, but we were told they can be since no contract was being signed. The cheaper ones had a good price, but the lowest priced phone does not have any features at all, no camera, no web, not even a bluetooth, but it does have a flashlight...WOW..anyways anyone know??

The phones are really good, and the plan includes unlimited everything- text, data, and minutes- for only $45. If you are a busy businessman or woman, it's super handy to have everything under one set price. I still think that Straight Talk is a much bette plan.

Much of excitement! "Walmart introduces a better, more affordable way to stay connected with your loved ones." I immediatly sat up a bit straighter. I had gotten my husband and myself tracfones more than two years ago, and I'm now getting rather restless with my old phone. The news of something better, and possibly cheaper certainly did get me going. And then, came the inevitable comparison. And the wave of enthusiasm subsided quickly. The only better thing walmart is offering me is a smarter, more expensive phone, for more expensive rates. I hope I don't have to wait another two years before a competitor to tracfone starts putting up a hand. Woooo!

Both of us have had our numbers for 10+ years, so they are different area codes. Family Mobile will *not* port numbers with different area codes on to the same family plan, so if they port my number then she has to lose hers, or vice-versa. That’s a deal breaker for us! For now I’ll just keep calling every day until they change this ridiculous policy… In case anyone else wants to complain, their number is: 877.308.9621 In case this impacts anyone else, I just got back from Walmart where I was going to sign my wife and I up for the family plan.

Unless t mobile network doesnt work as well as the others when it is available? is nationwide roaming included? one Q I have is even if a carrier (like Tmobile) doesnt have great coverage, does it really matter to the customer if roaming is included? in other words you are paying walmart prices but have access to the same network as everyone else.
