NET10 got its name from the fact that their nationwide call rate is 10 cents per minute. NET10 is a pay-as-you-go prepaid wireless phone service that offers the following:

  • no long term contracts
  • no credit checks
  • no activation fees
  • no monthly bills
  • no age limits

NET10 services their customers differently than other wireless companies. They use the other companies’ towers, has no stores, does it all online, sends no paper bills, buys their minutes and data in bulk from the major cell phone companies to pass the savings down. You can purchase a NET10 phone from Best Buy, RadioShack, Target, Walmart or any other one of the 90,000 locations across the United States. NOTE: please visit the site directly to verify the details and obtain more information. If you are a NET10 customer you will want to immediately activate your phone service online.
