Family Mobile is a virtual network that runs on the T-Mobile network. You can check the Family Mobile coverage map to find out about the signal strength in your local area. As T-Mobile is now owned by EE along with Orange, now you can also use Orange signal on your Family Mobile SIM giving you even stronger coverage no matter where you are.
Family Mobile runs as a PAYG-only virtual network. It is operated and run by IKEA – in the UK, all staff were issued with a free mobile phone and a Family Mobile SIM card including £5 of starter credit. It’s main selling point is incredibly low prices and the ability for families to group together SIM cards so that they can all be controlled from a single account. Another key benefit and selling point of IKEA’s Family Mobile is the ability to choose your own phone number. Many people have used this facility to get a gold phone number free of charge.
