Net 10 prepaid wireless phone service is, in my opinion, the best prepaid wireless service available. The rates are simple and affordable, the coverage is great and the selection of available phones can't be beat.
Net 10's rates are a simple ten cents per minute, period! Unlike some prepaid companies who charge you a daily fee, in addition to a per minute charge, there's no additional fees with Net 10. It's a flat ten cents per minute, and five cents to send a text message. And they have a variety of phones to choose from, from the very basic to phones with cameras, flip phones and web access. No matter which phone you choose, the service is always ten cents per minute.
Long distance and roaming are included at the same low price. The coverage is great and I have never had a dropped or failed connection. Your minutes also carry over when you purchase a new airtime card.
As great as Net 10 is, I don't recommend it for those who use their wireless phones rarely or just for emergencies. You see, each time you buy an airtime card, you are only given so much time in order to use your minutes. For example, you are given one month to use a $30 card, or 300 minutes. If you run out of month before you run out of minutes, you must purchase a new airtime card. If you purchase a new card before your current card expires, your minutes will carry over. However, you will begin a cycle of having lots of minutes to use in a certain amount of time.
For those who use their wireless phones frequently, my opinion is that Net 10 is the best prepaid wireless service.
