Total Wireless Now Available at Target, Dollar General

Total Wireless was launched in 2015 by America Movil brand Tracfone as a Walmart-exclusive brand. The MVNO, which uses Verizon, had a bit of a rocky start and was plagued with the issues that tend to follow America Movil brands. However, despite still bearing the “Only at Walmart” brand on its site, the service has been spotted at Target and Dollar General stores nationwide. The first spotting of these devices and plans was last week, and from what I can gather, it looks like it’s available in multiple states. Both Dollar General and Target stores are offering devices and plan refill cards. The expansion to Dollar General and Target makes Total Wireless the fourth America Movil brand to make the jump from exclusivity to nationwide offerings. Total Wireless offers the following plans, all on a monthly basis:

  • $25 – unlimited talk and text
  • $35 – unlimited talk and text, 5 GB data
  • $60 – unlimited talk and text, 8 GB data
  • $85 – unlimited talk and text, 12 GB data
  • $100 – unlimited talk and text, 15 GB data
There are also family plans available. However, unlike other America Movil brands, Total Wireless doesn’t have a pay-as-you-go option for consumers and instead focuses on unlimited talk and text plans with data buckets, similar to many other modern MVNOs. Total Wireless does allow customers to activate devices, although it has a range of devices for sale as well.
