Is Net10 Prepaid Plan a Good Phone Plan

For the past few months a lot of fantastic news and things had happened in the country. Some of those reports are just news and some could be used for our future references. We do need to learn from history so that we won’t be repeating the same mistake again and again. Unless you think that you are a genius person and you have your own instincts and senses not to try stupid things, you need to remember mistakes done by others so that you won’t be doing the same thing. Unfortunately, people tend to forget things easily as time passes by and therefore the history is repeated endlessly.

We see all these things everyday in our life. For instance, we have learned that we have to ensure that there is no coming traffic prior to crossing the street. Yet, accidents where pedestrians hit by motorists still happened. People are just ignorant. Yes, ignorance is bliss but miseries do happened because of it. We disregard few little things in our life so that we can catch up with the big ones. Regrettably, little things are like small pixels; accumulated to millions to pull together an image. They are of great importance as the big things.

Why am I so serious this time? Well, I have read on news here and there and to be honest, I am really disappointed at how people take things for granted. You were told to pay your due taxes before time, yet you decided to postpone the payment till the very last day. And when the time comes, you just don’t have the time to rush and make the payments. Later, when problem arises, you would claim that you have been discriminated by the authorities and start to blame other people. Dumb.

These scenarios are not something new to me. People created chaos not because they really are in trouble. It is because they asked for it. Let’s recall one of the biggest mistakes in history and see whether we can learn something from it. The Japanese attacked the Pearl Harbor in 1941 by surprise and killed thousands. The defenders at Pearl Harbor were unprepared, ammunition locks were locked, and aircrafts were parked wingtip to wingtip in the open. It was actually an evitable disaster if only everyone were prepared. The attack was a lesson to the US Army to be ready at all times.

Ok, I know that this post seemingly becoming a history lesson. I have no intention to do so actually. My intention was to let you know that there are many things about prepaid cell plans that are yet to be discovered by us. If we only look closely at each of the prepaid plans, we will be able to identify which plans have the most advantages so that you can subscribe to the best prepaid plan.

Today we are going to take a really long walk and this time Net10 has grabbed my attention. I lurked around in net10 cell phone forums only to find out some interesting information about net10. Now be very careful when I say “interesting phone plan” because I don’t mean that the cell phone plan is a great one neither a worst one. I also went to some other mobile forums to gather relevant information about net10 prepaid phone plans. Guess what, I found out many undiscovered things before about Net10 and this time around I will not let this great information buried just in threads in net10 forums or net10 blogs.

First of all I would like to remind you all once again that this discussion is not a promotional one neither a boycott one. My only intention is only to get you all to understand that people deserve to have good information and useful knowledge. Knowledge enriches your mind and once your mind is enriched with this net10 prpaid information, you will be a wiser person to decide on your own; would you buy net10 prepaid cell phone plan or would you start looking for other networks. In other words, it is all up to you and I am here just to show you few doors that could be leading to the right destination.

Relax yourself and move on to the next line.

Let’s get into the preliminary first on who is Net10. Net10 is actually owned by Tracfone, a reputable cell phone service provider in the United States and the company is based in Miami Florida. Now what actually amused me is the fact that net10 is offering a very cheap charge for minutes; all net10 minutes are net ten cents. That is why the company is delicately named Net10 in the first place and that is so wicked in my opinion. When Net10 was first introduced, it was simply evident that no other prepaid phone plans can beat that remarkable price and it didn’t take long for Net10 to penetrate the prepaid cell phone plan market in the United States.

As we all know, there are two different set of phone plans; contract-based phone plans and prepaid phone plans. As for Net10, it solely markets the benefits of using prepaid phone plans compared to using regular phone plans. One of the best things about using net10 prepaid phone plan is the easiness to buy the net10 prepaid refill phone cards. You can buy the net10 prepaid refill either via online or through the phone or you can also get the cards from any authorized net10 dealers. You can buy the prepaid phone cards as many as you want and you can keep them as the expiration date for the prepaid cards are only counted from the very first day you refill your net10 prepaid minutes.

"How to Check Your Prepaid Cell Phone Minutes"

I know that the most frequently asked question about prepaid cell phone plan is how to check the cell phone minutes. There are few ways to help you to check your net10 prepaid cell phone minutes apart from dialing a certain code. One of them is by visiting net10 website where you can login into your prepaid plan account and from there you are able to check many prepaid information about your phone. You can also check net10 prepaid minutes from there at the webpage. Having an online account to check your prepaid minuts is a bless and no one should have any trouble finding the information in the online prepaid account.

However there are few arguments on the net about the coverage provided by net10. I have seen many net10 complaints and almost all of those complaints are about net10 cell phone coverage and it seems like the company does not have a very good reputation in that area. As for me, that is a shame since when someone is thinking about getting a cell phone from a prepaid company, one of the first questions would be to know whether the cell phone company has the best coverage or not. If you are in Louisiana, you expect to be able to reach someone Texas or New York. You don’t want to have a good net10 coverage just in Louisiana and only be able to call someone in Louisiana only. You want the net10 prepaid coverage to be available at all states across the country. In this case, I believe that one of the most effective ways to know whether there are net10 coverage in particular areas is to have to be able check the net10 coverage map. With the net10 coverage map, you should be able to check out which areas have good coverage and which areas don’t.

Despite not having a good reputation in serving the best prepaid phone coverage all over the country, Net10 however has a great and sound reputation on its ability to serve the best call service. Many have agreed especially those who had change from another prepaid service to Net10 that they have never so far faced dropped calls issues. I see this as something good despite net10 is only a MNVO company and they bought prepaid minutes as a wholesale so that they can provide their own services to the people. I hope that net10 would keep up the good work in this and perhaps strive more to improve themselves in other critical areas.

Net10 Airtime

If you are just trying your luck to find on the net about net10 airtime codes, then I recommend you to forget that silly quest. What’s the point of looking for the net10 airtime codes when you can easily purchase the airtime refill prepaid cards at any authorized cell phone stores? You can either buy the net10 airtime cards at $30, $45, $60, or even a $100 net10 airtime code. As I have mentioned earlier, you can buy a few set of airtime refill cards and keep them till you really need it without having to rush to the prepaid stores whenever you run out of the prepaid minutes. The net10 airtime pin is on the prepaid refill card and you just have to enter the airtime pin on your cell phone and voila! Your cell phone airtime is refilled.

I am not sure about any discount on buying the net10 airtime because I have never encountered such information so far. There are few souls looking for the net10 airtime discount and they have emailed to me to give them some heads up but unfortunately, that kind of thing is out of my hands. However, I suggest that you check out the site regularly as sometimes there are some new announcements made from time to time and if there is any net10 airtime discount, the news should first be announce at their prepaid website.

Do you know why I really hate regular phone plan? Because I hate the idea that you have to pay a certain amount of fee to activate the plan before you can start using it. Think about it, the phone company is the one offering the service. They can easily activate your plan and vice versa. Why would you pay for activation fee then? Well, my only opinion is that the phone company is just going to steal away more money from you. That is not the case with net10. There is no net10 activation fee and once you subscribe to net10 service, you can just take the net10 sim card and install it to your cell phone (do I need to teach you how to install your sim card to your cell phone?) and then you are good to go. You can use the net10 service without paying any activation fee and till the day you feel that the net10 is not any good and you can just let the service expires on its own.

Another good thing about Net10 airtime is how you keep your cell phone minutes from not expiring on its own. As we all know, when you refill your prepaid phone with a $30 refill, the expiration date would be usually around 30 days from the day you activated the refill code. After that period, your service will be suspended and you won’t be able to make any calls though you still have some prepaid minutes left. If this happens, you can just refill your prepaid phone minutes with another net10 refill code and the previous net10 minutes balance will be rolled over to the new expiry date. This way you can keep the minutes from expiring for up to a year! Isn’t that fantastic?

Of course any company would always give some kind of rewards to their valued customers to ensure that the customers are loyal to their products. So does Net10 where it offers a lot of regular bonuses and rewards. Whenever you refill your net10 airtime, you will be rewarded with some points. These special points can be redeemed at the end of the day when they have reached certain levels. You can either redeem this points for an exchange in more free net10 bonus minutes or can you also exchange it with other net10 bonus codes. You can also use the points to download net10 free ringtones or other net10 multimedia downloads. If you are not that concern about net01 downloads, you can just stick with the basic redemptions by exchanging the points to have net10 easy minutes promo code.

Net10 International

What I like about net10 is its generosity when it comes to roaming your net10 prepaid cell phone. There will be no charges or fees on activating roaming service for your net10 phone whenever you want to go international. In short, net10 international callings will have no roaming activation and you will only be charged the normal rate for net10 international calls. Same goes to sending SMS from abroad to your family or to anyone using the net10 prepaid phone.

Net10 SMS Text Message

If a net10 call will cost you 10 cent per minute, what would you think about the SMS? It’s even lower than that haha. It’s only 5 cents per SMS sent. However, I still don’t condone to the idea of paying for the SMS received. I don’t find it logical since if some annoying people got your cell phone number, and decide to spam you with some text messages, you will be paying more than what you actually used which is just not fair. In my humble opinions, you should only be paying for net10 SMS whenever you are the sender, not someone else. If that is possible and Net10 eliminates that cost of receiving the SMS, then I am happy to promote net ten all the time in this blog lol.

Net10 Compatible Cell Phones

There are many cell phones offered by Net10 and they are Net10 LG 300, Net10 LG 600, Net10 600g, net10 lg300g, net10 motorola w375, Motorola V176, Motorola W370, W377, and few more other mobile phones. Those I have named are just amongst the cell phones from Net10 but I think you can easily see from that that there are no really stylish cell phones amongst them. But if you are not that savvy and your main concern is you can easily make and receive phone calls without much hassle and at a very low rate, then Net10 cell phone is really for you.

I guess it is about time for me to stop for now talking about Net10 prepaid cell phone plan. I will continue in the next post more about Net10 especially their cell phones and which cell phones from net10 are the best options for you and which cell phone has the best web browser. We will talk more on Net10 unlimited text plan as well as other net10 plans. Don’t worry, I will try my best to touch every single thing about Net10 in my next post. Note: be my guest to read my complaint at Tracfone Prepaid Phone Plan Review.

Have a good one guys!

Is T-Mobile the Worst Cell Phone Plan - Review

I have come across many sites and blogs that told us about the advantages of using T-Mobile and yet to find one that truly described how well the service is. The motive behind why I wanted to find such reviews about the phone plan is because I have been bombarded with some emails these few weeks (sorry, I don’t have the time to answer all of them, so I posted the answer here) asking me whether T-Mobile is beyond doubt the best prepaid cell phone plan in the United States. Well, I thought to myself that it is time to do a little research on this and there you go, a post for you to tell you whether T-Moible is the worst service plan ever.

I am sorry if my tenet here can only cater tmobile plan in the United States and not at other countries since I believe that the concern now is whether the company is providing the US citizens a competitive plan comparing to other prepaid cell phone plans in the US. Since US has the biggest market ever (IMHO) and so far I have never seen so many prepaid service providers in the country than any other countries in this world, I decided that I would do my research based on reviews about us t mobile. In the meantime, I will continue my research for other countries and when the time comes, I’ll post the bloody t mobile reveiw here.

As far as I am concerned T-Mobile is considered the largest prepaid cell phone service provider in the US and therefore people delicately named it as the best plan. Well, I don’t think that is true at all. Being the largest means the largest; and that’s it. Microsoft is the biggest IT company that is producing operating system for computers yet it is not the best. Being the best is another anecdote here. I am compelled to inform you that based on some researches I have done in the past about T-Mobile – it is not worth it.

Let’s talk about the service itself. When we talk about phone service, what is the most important thing that we need to know first? Of course, the cell phone reception. According to what I read from what I can say a reliable resource, tmoblie doesn’t have a good reception and coverage in many areas especially in suburban areas. Therefore it is not useful if you the network coverage is only good at your own areas but at the same time it is bad at other areas. What good a phone is with that kind of bad reception? What you need from a good cell phone service is its recption and network coverage and when the provider provides great coverage across the country, then you can say the service is the best. I don’t see that in TMobile and yet it is still voted as the best cell phone service provder.

That’s not about it. I have also heard some news that t mbile does not provide a good customer service. Most of the representatives have bad manners and they are unable to provide excellent customer service. Furthermore, there are many amongst them who could only concern about making money out of any calls by offering extra services and features to be added to the original plans. When calls come in, they have all the details about the plan used by the caller and from there they cunningly asked few questions to lure the caller to what they actually wanted to tell which is to add more services. More services means more commissions. If the call is plainly a trouble call or pertaining to technical issues, you might just have to wait for hours to get your issues to be resolved, and that if you are lucky. If you are not that lucky, you might just end up whining about the service and have to be patient using the crappy plan till the contract ends.

Is that fair to you? Is that what you want from a good prepaid cell phone plan?

Well, that’s not exactly what I want from a cell phone company. What I want is a good service in every single matter. I don’t care if the coverage is so-so yet the company is offering me an overall good service. I shouldn’t have no problem contacting the customer careline and receive a good assistance. I shouldn’t have no problem to switch from one plan to another plan without having to pay silly amount of service charge. At least, that’s not what happen to me with my service provider.

Speaking about contract, I have long promoted the prepaid plan since I know for fact that contract-based plans will just sucking out money from your account. Unless you use your cell phone regularly or if you are stuck to cellphone most of the time, then the contract-based plans are not the ones for you. If you are not happy with the plan, you can’t get out from it unless you pay a bloody-hell expensive cancellation fee and you can’t keep your cell hpone! I don’t think that is a good idea at all and if you want to keep your money out from all this blood-sucking plans, use prepaid plans. You don’t have to worry about getting stupid plan since you can always swich to other plans easily without spending too much. Furthermore, it it easier to just get another refill card whenever you are out of credit at almost any cell phone stores; Target for instance.

Some people love T Mobile. Yet some don’t feel too good about the plan that they are using so they decided to change it when it is time to renew the contract. So they called up the customer service and guess what, they were told to renew the contract, they have to pay certain amount and then the line will be disconnected for few days to allow the transition. So within that few days, how the heck am I supposed to make calls with my cell phone? What’s the point of paying more when you can’t use the phone simply because you ask to switch to new phone plan? This is wehre you should think to switch from Pay-As-You-Go mindset to Pay-More?-Go-To-Hell! mindset lol.

I was told that when you signed up for a contract with T-Mobile, you have two weeks to decide whether the coverage is good enough or not. The problem is, how can you decide whether the coverage is good or not? If the company is selling the contract in Nevada, shouldn’t the company is the first to know how good the reception is in Nevada? Shouldn’t the sales rep inform that to you in the first place instead of asking you try it out for the first 14 days? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to decide whether the phone plan from T-Mobile is worst or not with that kind of marketing strategy.

You don’t sell a product unless you are certain that it works. If you know that the coverage is not good, then you don’t sell it unless you just want to take some money out from the poor farmer. That poor fellow might not have the time to figure out the scheme. He might also have no idea how to decide on that whether the coverage is good or not if what he does everyday is just wake up in the morning, eat some cereal and milk, go to grocery store and buy some potatoes and pomfret fish (and some pop corn perhaps), go back and ask his wife to cook while he go to feed his ducks, come back and take his lunch and watch tv all day long. I bet he would return the phone within 14 days and ask for refund from t mobile. He might found out the flaw when he goes out of the town to meet his ex schoolmate in Georgia and fails to call his wife’s cell phone. And by that time, it has been months and I don’t think that t mobilw would refund for such unfortunate circumstances.

There goes my two cents about T-Mobile. If you think that T-Mobile provides you the worst service ever, then you may be right. If worse comes to worst, I recommend you to just switch to another cell phone plan. Period.
