Total Wireless Now Available at Target and Dollar General

Total Wireless display at a Target Store

TracFone's Total Wireless brand has been a Walmart retail exclusive since its 2015 launch. But that's changed this month as Target and Dollar General have started carrying Total Wireless.  I snapped the photo above showing the new Total Wireless display at a Colma, California Target Store yesterday. As you can see Target is selling a full range of Target airtime cards along with four phones at full retail prices. Notably missing are Total Wireless SIMs.

I don't have a Dollar General store nearby but a current Dollar General sales circular (image below) advertises sale prices on two Total Wireless phones.

Total Wireless is the fourth TracFone brand to show up in national retail stores. TracFone pay as you go and Net10 have been in virtually every retail chain for many years. Last year TracFone's T-Mobile based Simple Mobile brand popped up in Target, Dollar General, Walmart and Best Buy stores nationwide.

Total Wireless is an MVNO on the Verizon network that specializes in aggressively priced unlimited monthly plans. The following Total Wireless plans are available:
  • $25/month: unlimited talk and messaging and no data.
  • $35/month: unlimited talk and messaging and 5 GB of data.
  • $60/month: Two line plan with unlimited talk, messaging and 8 GB of shared data
  • $85/month: Three line plan with unlimited talk and messaging and 12 GB of shared data
  • $100/month: Four line plan with unlimited talk and messaging and 15 GB of shared data
Data allotments on Total Wireless are hard capped meaning that when you use it all your data stops, unlike most of Total's competitors, unlimited throttled data is not available. However, you can add 3 GB of rollover data  to any plan for $10.

  1. Glad to see TW avaible in more places. I don't care for TF / AM but this is only VZW MVNO that offers family plans which make it attactive for some people. Also those plan rates do not include taxes and fees which can be very high in some locations.

    1. The taxes in CA are horrendous. I had total wireless but decided it wasn't for me. My data would mysteriously disappeared and pins would not be credited to my account. It was such a frustrating experience. I'm now with boom with unlimited talk and text and 1 GB data for 24.99 all taxes included. I'm a happy camper!

    1. Only Dollar General as far as I know. The Family Dollar reference was a typo.

  3. Using Total Wireless for 5 months made me frustrated. I switched back to Verizon mainly because of customer service and accurate data totals. Data remaining balance was erratic.
    Sure you could save a few bucks with TW but dealing with poor CS and account management was maddening.

      Unlikely since they are owned by the same company as TracFone, the biggest MVNO out there.

  5. America Mobile brand = NO.

    Carlos Slime and his customer disservice circus don't deserve your money or mine.

    1. "Mobile" above should be Movil

    2. It's not movil, it is 'movíl'.

    3. América Móvil owner Carlos Slim has lost $6B since DJT announced he was running for President. He dropped from #1 to #6 on the Forbes list of richest men. This should make all the Slim haters happy, for once in their lives.
      Unfortunately for them, Slim is more popular than ever in Mexico, and may run for President there.

    4. Oops' typo. Slim lost $16B, not $6B. But he is still worth 17X as much as DJT. If he becomes President of Mexico, we can really learn what it takes to make a deal.

  6. Looks good on paper, fails in real-life...

    1. True enough

      Movil brand always = FAIL in the end

  9. I have had Total Wireless for a year and a half and have never had any problems with customer service. I recommend it to all of my friends that want to save money.

  10. Currently on Virgin's $35 unlimited talk/text 5GB plan. Virgin & Boost are owned by Sprint but there's no Sprint cell tower close to me. Very slow 4G speeds. There is a Verizon tower in town. I've read too many bad reviews of TW. A little scared to jump networks. Same price, plan and better coverage. Still too many bad reviews.

    1. Take a look at boom! Mobile (boom.us) "V network" $30 & $35 plans. Less data, sorry, but at least you get a signal. The difference in the boom! plans is the $35 includes throttled slow data after high speed allotment.

    3. This Virgin plan is the lowest price on the Sprint network if you want a lot of data. It's only $30 with AutoPay for iPhones.
      They will sell you a new iPhone 5S for $99 +Tax, and it pays you back in 20-21 months. A new SE pays you back the $180 in 3 years. A good used 6 will also pay for itself in ~3 years.
      Even if you keep your old non-iPhone.
