Net 10 Cellular has always charged 10 cents a minute, PAYG (pay as you go) for service. For the last couple of years you always got 300 minutes and 60 days of service for free when you activated your phone. They have changed their pricing for phones and for minutes. In addition they now offer you Monthly plans that offer more minutes per dollar spent. You can also continue to purchase with the inexpensive PAYG plan they have always had.

New Net10 Prepaid Phone Pricing
You are still able to get some phones with 300 free minutes. They Some of the phones now come with the thirty day Unlimited plan. All of the Net 10 phones do not come with 300 free minutes. Be sure to have a look at the fine print when getting a Net10 Wireless phone to be certain you are getting the addional free minutes. Almost all of the under $25 phones do not come with 300 free minutes.
Roll Over with Net10 Wireless
This is no longer as straight forward as it used to be. The $25 and $50 Monthly cards do not roll over time or minutes.
So if you purchase a Net 10 Prepaid “Monthly” Card you will get 30 days to use your 750 or Unlimited minutes. If you purchase a Pay as you Go minute card like the $30/60 day card then your service time and minutes will roll over but you must keep your service active.
The PAYG (pay as you go) cards do roll over minutes and service time.
Changing Plans with Net10
If you want to change from Pay as you go to Monthly service there is no extra charge. You can shift back to Pay As You Go (PAYG) simply by adding another pay as you go card. Remember the Monthly cards do not roll forward. As soon as you add a card with monthly service your previous card will become invalid.
Net10 Wireless Monthly Card Warning
If you are utilizing the Monthly service plan and you add an additional card your current balance will not carry forward. An example would be if you purchased a 750 minute/30 day card and you have 100 minutes and 12 days left and you add another 750 minute card you will end up with 750 minutes and 30 days, you will not end up with 850 minutes and 42 days.
You will spend at least $15 a month to keep your Net10 Cellular phone active.
