Yesterday, I ordered my free phone from Walmart. They are going to do away with the scanners (that’s supposed to happen sometime in the next year or two) and we will need cell phones to do things like check prices, see if an item is in stock, etc., etc. People who already have cell phones can use the Walmart app now to do all those things and much, much more. You can even clock in and out on the app. The free phones will be able to connect to our WiFi, but we won’t be able to use them for our own personal use, like making phone calls unless we sign up with a cell phone provider. Once we do that, we’re free to use the phones for phone calls and all the other apps we choose to put on. No word on WHEN the phones will arrive. I only have a pay-as-you-go cell phone now, but once I get my new cell phone from work, I won’t buy any more phone cards for it and I’ll have to choose a cell phone provider. By the way, the phone is a Samsung Galaxy.
