Family Mobile is a great value but you have to give serious thought to where you will be using this phone. I travel between the New York city area and Sarasota FL. Since this runs on T Mobile you need to find out how coverage is in your area. Although I had coverage in most areas, the issue was with data. Many areas in Sarasota I was on the slow Edge network. This is like dialup internet years ago. In 2013 that just isn't acceptable on a Smartphone. I actually could not believe the towers by Tmobile in many areas had not been updated yet in the Sarasota FL area. In the NY City area it was fine. Long story short, if you know Tmobile is good where you are this phone should be a good value. If you are thinking of traveling it might not be the best option. Have a look at Straight Talk instead and get a phone that works on Verizon. A few dollars more a month but far superior coverage.
I love this phone and would like to state that another reviewer said that iTunes and AppStore would not work with myfamilymobile. This is not true. This iPhone 5 works great with all apple services and have not had a problem. I'm waiting till nov. to get the new iPad 5th gen.
I was looking at upgrading from my older Iphone to an iPhone 5. So far I have not been disappointed. I have been with Family Mobile for around 3 years now, and when setting up this iPhone ended up with an american customer service rep. who was beyond helpful. Unlike Straight Talk's reviews I have had no trouble connecting to 4g networks. I haven't really gotten any 3g connection due to the fact I mainly pick up 4g or extended from time to time. Phone works great with Family Mobile.
What a welcome change This phone works flawless
