Someone fraudulently ordered a prepaid T-Mobile cell phone and a prepaid minutes on my walmart.com account and used my debit card. Walmart won't do anything about it and since it was on my debit card instead of credit card, I can't dispute it. I'm just out the money.

Do minutes come with it?
Can I buy minutes and use this phone -- even if it's 6 months down the road?

THANKS
