Disappointed about 200 minutes

I was able until recently to purchase 200 prepaid minutes for my Net10 phone. Now it seems I have to buy 300 minutes, which I don't need nor want, since I use my phone seldom.

I don't want a PLAN. I would like to purchase only what I need, when I need it.


You can still get 200 minutes for $15 a month via the Easy Minutes option, but I think it does require you to sign up for auto-refill.


Calling Mart is where I go

There is no tax and also additional bonus savings,
and you can call them directly if you don't have internet access.

Too many minutes adding up

I don't use my Net 10 phone that much and my minutes are getting larger all the time. Why can't i buy just time and keep my minutes that i have?

Hi Barbara,

Only Tracfone has that kind of service protection plan. Unfortunately you can't convert your Net10 phone to a Tracfone even though both have the same parent company.

True, but ....

That's right, you don't want to get the $20 30-day 200 minute card. What you can do is sign up for the $15 a month Easy Minutes plan which gives you 200 minutes a month. So the monthly cost is the same as buying the $30 300 minute cards every 60 days, but you get a few more minutes per month.

Net10 200 minutes vs. 300 minutes
by: Anonymous

Buying the 300 minutes airtime cards gives you 60 service days. The 200 minutes airtime cards gives you 30 service days. It is actually cheaper to buy the $30 300 minutes with 60 service days airtime cards than buying the $20 200 minutes with 30 service days airtime cards.

You will be paying $180 per year for six $30 300 minutes airtime cards vs. $240 per year for 12 $20 200 minutes airtime cards.
