How Net10 Pay as You Go Works

How Net10 Pay as You Go Works

The Prepaid model that Net10 uses is the Cost per Minute structure. You purchase minutes and at the same time you will get a service period to use those minutes. .

To start with you will buy a Net10 and a Net10 Card. You can only use a Net10 for Net10 prepaid service, you cannot use a Verizon, At&t, T-Mobile, Alltel, Net10 or any other phone with Net10 Service. The Net10 SIM card will not work in any other phone either.

The New Straight Talk Samsung R451C from Walmart, Verizon and Tracfone is a Hit.

For comparison by 2005, just one out of every ten households had eliminated their lines. The move to cellular phones is expanding.

How to Activate your Net10 Prepaid Phone

You will Activate the phone by calling Net10 on a land line or by using the web.

You will have to key in some numbers into your phone and then it is active. It is really easy For the system to activate your phone can take 10 minute to a couple of hours.

Adding a Net10 Minute card is even easier. You can add Net10 cards directly from the phone or from the Net10 website. You will add the 15 digit PIN code into your phone.

I have gotten a lot of extra minutes on my Net10s by using Bonus Codes. Net10 Bonus codes are a five digit number that will increase the number of minutes you get when you are adding a card to your Net10 phone or buying a new phone.. Check out the Net10 Bonus Codes.

Net10 Prepaid Wireless Service Time

Most Net10 cards will put 30 service days onto your phone for each $15 you spend along with ten minutes per dollar spent. If you do not have service time left on your phone it will not work even if you have minutes left.. The End of Service Date normally flashes on the screen of your Net10 phone all the time. You can also check your service end date and the number of minutes you have left in the Prepaid Menu on your Net10 phone. hwnet10wrks

Net10 Service Time and Minutes Roll Over

Activation time and your Minute Balance will both be added to your current balance when you add a new card. Let's say you have 60 days and 20 units left on your phone. Add a 300 minute 60 day card and you will end up with 120 days(60+60) and 320 minutes (20+300).

I love Skye

I have had Skype Unlimited for a couple of months now. It is really sweet. I went to Phoenix for a week and took my computer. ---my desktop--
Once I was hooked up to the internet I hopped on Skype and called. It was great, the place I was staying did not have a land line but it did not matter to me.

When I got home it was the same story. As soon as I was hooked up to DSL I was making calls.

I paid $30 for one years access to outgoing calls with Skype Unlimited.

That is less than one month for a land line.

TracfoneTips - Voip 911 Calls

Voip 911 calls can be an Issue

Voip uses your high speed internet access to make phone calls. Talking through your computer. Your computer, laptop may be hooked up to the internet almost anywhere. The Voip phone system may not be able to hook you up with your local 911. Skype is not set up to hook you up to your local 911 exchange. There have been reports of people not being able to get ahold of 911 with a regular phone hooked up to their computer. This could be dangerous.??

The Voip 911 Calls Solution

If you are using a normal landline type of phone for Voip in your home put the 911 information on your handset.
Write the phone number of the local police department and the address of the phone. Tape this to the back of the handset. In an emergency if a visitor has to call for an ambulance that information on the handset will be really handy.
Dialing 911 will not work on a lot of the Voip phone systems.
Here is a picture of the Voip 911 Calls Solution.

TracfoneTips - Skype Unlimited

Skype Unlimited allows calling to phone numbers in the United States. You can also receive a regular phone number that can be called by anyone with a phone in the US.

The coolest part about Skype is the ability to call skype to skype without using any minutes for free.

TracfoneTips - Skype Free

Skype has a lot of different levels of Voip Programs. Voip uses high speed internet access to make phone calls. Talking through your computer.


This is the basic free service. Download the Skype software and install it and you can talk through your computer with almost anyone in the world who has high speed access and Skype.

You can talk to anyone else who has Skype for free.

This works really well. Many people are able to keep in touch with their children, grandkids, girlfriends, whatever with high speed access and headphones.
To make mine work I bought the headphones shown below, downloaded Skype--less than a minute, installed the software, picked a name and password and was ready. Then I bought the $30 unlimited outgoing calls plan and I started calling. If you are calling other people who have Skype already you do not need to pay or put money on your account.
