    On our trek to the absolute CHEAPEST wireless service, I have stumbled across WalMart Family Mobile which has the Lifeline Discount Program which both my partner and I should qualify for....This would put our wireless bill down to $29.98 instead of the $39.98. However, Will my AT&T Q10 work with it? Will it get the 3G speed or will it be on EDGE? In the SIM settings of the phone it does say Unlocked on the network

    I think that has to do with the frequencies the Q10 is compatible runs on and the one that the service provides. I use a TMO Q10 on ATT (unlocked) and get LTE, but not sure if it works the other way around. Which Q10 model is it? SQN100-1?

    Mine is the SQN100-1 so it should get 3G on WalMart Family Mobile?

    Yes, what does your family mobile plan include?

    It depends whose network they use as an MVNO. If it's AT&T's, you'll get 3G everywhere, no problem. If it's TMO's, you'll get 3G only in the refarmed areas (EDGE everywhere else.)

    I know it is TMO but I rarely go anywhere so I should be good.

    It's not a matter of going anywhere, it's a matter of whether or not you're in a refarmed TMO market. If you're not, you won't get 3G.
