I just switched my phone provider over from TracFone to Net10 because they had the phone that I'd been looking for. I've had prepaid phone service since the first phone I got, and I don't see any reason to pay the price for a contract phone. Prepaid phone services, like Net10 or TracFone, allow keeping your minutes until your minutes or days run out, and you can typically use your units/minutes for anything your phone is capable of. On my Net10 phone I can call, text, browse the web, and download graphics, ringtones, and more from the Net10 website.
You should consider their unlimited plan for $50 per month, if you talk and text a lot, especially if you are running a business. Oh, there will be no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks.
For the bare-minimum user, I'd definitely recommend going for the pay-as-you-go plan.
NET10 is part of a larger multinational wireless company, America Mobil which also runs Tracfone and Straight Talk. Apparently the company has a lot of experience in the prepaid arena. So, worry no more. But don't just take it from me, click here to hear a Real NET10 customer share their experience using this service.
