T-Mobile is launching more than 2,300 Walmart stores starting next month, boosting their ever-growing sales presence. The “Uncarrier” has confirmed that more than 2,300 Walmart stores across the country will soon be offering phones and services to T-Mobile and Metro to T-Mobile customers.
They had previously announced a commercial expansion back in March during their Virtual Analyst Day. New retail outlets will more than double their existing presence in national supermarkets, adding to their recently launched foot in Best Buy stores.
Consumers of the pre-paid magenta carrier product, Metro by T-Mobile, will be able to purchase calls and SIM cards from brick and mortar stores in Walmart and online starting October 18. and a choice between their three unlimited plans starting at $40/mo.
And the standard T-Mobile postpaid phones and service offerings will be available as early as November 1. This includes all of their currently available programs, such as Magenta MAX, and possibly all of their popular phone promotions such as a free 5G phone for any trade.
Walmart’s VP of Wireless Services, Mehrdad Akbar, had this to say in the announcement:
“T-Mobile is a top wireless provider and one that we know our customers are going to be excited to shop in our stores and on Walmart.com. We are thrilled to add T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile to our assortment and feel that it’s yet another way we are delivering the best products and services to our customers to help them save money and live better.”
Walmart has donated its prepaid “Family Mobile” products for many years, offering a wide range of applications from any 5GB of data to unlimited. That service uses the T-Mobile network. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
