I have been arguing with the stupid foreign people that don't know crap they cut my data off before my minutes ran out I added another 50 dollar phone card and still a week later they haven't turned it back on and every time I call they send me to a recording and refuse to let me speak to a supervisor they are such liars and they are false advertising a lot of crap I regret ever dealing with this piece of crap company.JohnMitchum 5/21/13 5:05PMOfficial company reply

This company has the worst customer service that I have ever dealt with. I was on phone over and hour on hold and never got to a customer service rep. On a previous call I chose the option to have them call me back, they did, told me they could not help me, transferred me to another department, was on hold 20 minutes then gave up. I tried to handle my own problem online but their website is so screwed up that I could not help myself. I am going to switch companies.

Net 10 deactivated my phone service stating they had done this due to my phone supposedly being reported "stolen", which it never was. Even though I have account information on file with them, including my e-mail address no one in their organazation ever bothered to contact me to confirm whether or not my phone had actually been stolen. If they had e-mailed me concerning this issue and had given me ample time to respond I would have confirmed this was not the case and any report of my phone being stolen had been done so in error on their part. Instead they deactivated my phone and minutes and I have a new phone which I cannot use and no service even though my phone still shows over 400 minutes and 102 service days I have already paid for. I tried calling the service phone number provided in hopes of talking to a representative to reactivate my phone but only got their automated system directing me to either provide a pin number from a pre-puchased minutes card or provide a credit card number to purchase additional minutes in order to reactivate my phone service! I firmly believe that this is nothing but a big rip off scam to coearse a person into buying more air time!! Net10 should be investigated for illegal business practices and for interstate wire fraud by the FCC and Attorney General for what they are perpetrating on their customers! This is the third posting I have submitted on this website and Net10 responds by direting me to e-mail them with required serial numbers and or phone number to resolve this issue but as yet nothing has been done to correct the problem they created and I feel that entering any further posts here is just a big waste of time!!!mrclaude 5/14/13 7:22AMOfficial company reply

They are the consumate in unproffesionalism and lack any knowledge in the products or services they provide and are totally incompetent in their entire operating system!! If you post a comment here and receive a response from Net10 don't waste your time responding to the directions telling you to e-mail them at the address they give you. All you will receive is a link to another dead end to resolving your problem and become even more irrate and frustrated!!

My iphone with T-Mobile SIM no longer has data. I only get the run around. This is the most frustrating company to deal with. Run.
I called, I posted on their forum...all dead ends.
They just forward you to this voice mail that tells you that you've been cut off due to data overage. There is a 1.5 G limit on ATT SIM.
Well, did anyone ever check that I do not have an ATT SIM. It is a T-Mobile SIM.

My old Net10 phone quit working so I bought a new one. I went on line to activate it and trasfer my exsisting phone number. It activated but with a different phone number! After calling customer service and waiting over 40 minutes on hold for a customer service rep who barely spoke or understood english they told me my new phone would require a new sim card and would arrive in 3-5 days. The new card arrived over the weekend. I had to use my freinds phone to actvate it via their customer service line and activated my phone with my old number and new sim and it seemed to be fine, in fact I used the phone to call my mother for mother's day. This morning I went use my phone and got a recorded message saying my phone was de-activated and to call a service center for assitance!! Is this some kind of perverse joke on the part of Net10?!! How in the world can you call them with a de-activated phone??!! I am more than fed up and frustrated with all the nonsense and inconvenience I have been put through with Net10!!!

I purchased a Net10 data smartphone from Dollar General Store on April 12, 2013. I also purchased the $50.00 Unlimited data plan. Now here I am at the end of the first month and I am having probles with my data plan. What was suppose to be UNLIMITED is really very limited. At 1.5GB my data service was cut off and the reps are saying I was abusing the data services. All I have done was download games from the android market and/or programs to download music to my phone. With it being less than 30 days I have asked for a refund on my phone, I was told to go back tothe store that I purchased the phone at well becauseI dd no keep my receipt I can not return the phone to the store. I have spent sevral horson h phone wit net10 reps and I haveeven called he corporate office. After now 30 minutes o being on hold waiting for a suppevisor my battery is about dead and te phone isnt wantig to charge. I a at te point ofputing this all over facebook, Myspace, twitter and any other website I can. Untill this is resolved I will run this company in the ground.

I've had this for a month now and while I've had a few issues with getting help, I've eventually had my problem solved by a rep who was patient. Despite the problems, I know I get what I'm paying for, as it is still $40 cheaper than verizon's cheapest plan for me and it was so much easier to reach a person with Net10 than it was with Straight Talk.caleewa 4/4/13 3:44PMOfficial company reply

I previously submitted a comment under the name "Steaming in Iowa." This is an update. I wrote to the e-mail address that April gave me and set up a time to talk with them on my home phone. I'm thrilled to say my remaining 7000 minutes were on my new phone before the call was completed. My representative treated me with 100% courtesy and competence. It couldn't have been a more satisfying interaction. I pray that those you experiencing ongoing problems will have peaceful resolution in the end.Steaming in Iowa 2/23/13 9:58AM
I have been with Net10 for years and they are great. I think sometimes you get an unknowledgeable person. If that happens just say thanks talk to you later, recall and get another tech. Its like any other place you will get techs that don't know a thing. I always call back and get better service during the day on work days. Also, Net10 is deactivating people if they use to much data, thats what my pals have told me. I have a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim, excellant phone. Works with Verizon towers only in my area. I imagine if I used to much data they would kick me to the curb. I hardly use data on my phone if I need to download from Google play I will through my wifi at home. So when it comes to choosing a smartphone with sim card that allows u to do anything, I think there is going to be problems with over usage. I bought my phone at Walmart, if it did not work, (u pretty much no right away) just take it back and get another one. The proclaim took a total of 1/2 hour to activate only because I keyed in the wrong progam number. If anything I would of been out of a phone for 1 hour because I kept my old phone from Net10 and could have reactivated it again through the phone. I hope this helps.Patunia 2/17/13 6:54PM
I want to thank Kalika with Net 10 Wireless for her kindness in helping me today. She was able to resolve the problem with my cell phone in reimbursing minutes lost due to my phone deleting them. I appreciate so much her help. Thank you God for her help.Anonymous 2/12/13 9:41AM
So, I called last month or so to get some time added on to my phone because it was deactivated for at least two months. I was having issues with the website because it wasn't liking my information. Called them up, spoke with a woman, she seemed a tad bored but she got done exactly what I wanted to do. Helped me get my phone reactivated plus also ensured that I didn't lose my phone number - I was totally expecting to have lost it by the time I finally got my phone turned back on. I was really nervous about calling them, expecting to be sharing a horror story but no, everything turned out fine. Got exactly what I wanted in about ten minutes or so. Or that's how it felt anyway. I've been telling myself I would leave a review because of the negative feedback and that's always what people say. Rarely do they proactively tell good experiences, it's always the bad ones that people want to talk about.Chev 2/6/13 9:53AM
I have a text plan. Every so often I receive a text message unsolicited. I do not read or answer it. Automatically 5 minutes are deducted from my account. If do not have a plan for text why does Net10 allow delivery especially incoming messages?. I am concerned that Net10 allows this to happen because of the increased useage cost for the customer. So far this has happened about 6 times and I have lost $3 in time.sketter 1/3/13 6:20PM

I've had Net10 for 6 years. Works great ... everywhere.
Customer Service and computer system is dated ... so there WILL BE glitches.
If you want perfect instant customer service get Verizon and pay triple.
I DON'T WANT ANY CUSTOMER SERVICE. The phone just works.Jon 11/2/12 7:55PM
My daughter one month of service -- 750 minutes for $25. My bank statement showed a deduction of $680.64. This did not at all make me happy; I'm on Social Security and that's about half my monthly income.
I was afraid because I had seen negative comments about Net10. Rather than having to wait, they let me wait for them to call me back and they gave me an estimate of 4-9 minutes. They called back in 6 minutes. I had to go through a couple of people, of course, to figure out what was going on.
It turned out my daughter somehow ordered 24 months of service, not one month. Without questions, Net10 canceled 23 of those months of service. Each service person I talked to was friendly and efficient and spoke English extremely well.
So thank you,Net10.
Net10, Please give customer service training to cable people and Internet Service Providers, and utility people and repair people.WmF 10/19/12 6:04PM
I have had my Net10 service for two years and have had to contact customer service only twice. They were polite and quickly answered my questions. I am using the LG620g phone which is not problematic as some of the others might be. I am very pleased.TH'er 10/2/12 12:40PM
I think due to your feedback NET10 has improved his customer service. I got the guy on the line within 15 mins. Tried to help me diligently but still I wasn't able to connect to internet which my $50 plan provides - it could be a network congestion or something else but couldn't connect. However, the guys was cordial and helping.Farbman 8/31/12 1:30PM
"NET10" & "Straight Talk" do NOT offer hands-free Bluetooth, which is used while driving, etc. Even though it naturally comes with this version of Android, they've intentionally removed it from their version of the Android OS (aka "Gingerbread.") I found an app on "Google Play" (the site where you have to download android apps) that would have actually installed a hands-free app to use with Bluetooth. The app was blocked from installing on this brand new NET10 phone and I was kicked off of Goggle Play, by NET10. Goggle Play is now gone from my phone for just trying to download an app that would given me hands-free calling. I've done a complete factory reset. NO MORE GOOGLE PLAY. You see, with the "unlimited" plans they offer, the last thing they want you to do is talk on the phone while stuck in traffic. It would eat up too many minuets.
The app I tried to install is called "Voice Control."
Beware: Trying to install this commonly used app may disable some of the most important features of your "Tracfone" family of phones. They say that their 'refill' cards aren't refundable. Well, it's off to the bank in the morning to file a fraudulent charge to my checking account do to this serious violation of false advertising.
None of the Tracfone family of has a BBB Accreditation. I wonder why?
I found gold with this, their premium customer support number: 800-323-2366. Them foreigner's answered on the first ring, every time... and were very nice!JE56789 8/8/12 10:47PM
I purchased 3 Net10 phones on HSN. They cost $99 and included the first months service ($50).
I read all the negative feedback and decided "How bad can it be?".
I had a few questions while setting everything up. I tried e-mail and they answered within an hour. Good english and correct solutions.
I ported all 3 numbers over from Sprint one morning. While filling out the form to port I encountered a screen that did not apply to me and I could not get past it. I paused and e-mailed tech support. Ten minutes later they called me and a yound woman from the Phillipines, whose english was impecable, solved me problem in about 15 minutes.
There were issues with the other 2 phone ports (because I gave an incorrect ZIP code). Once again I was called by support and the problem solved.
All 3 of us love the phones and at $136.00/month for all 3 with unlimited everything and no contract, it is about $100 per month cheaper than Verizon.
Perhaps I am the exception, but I don't think so. In my experience unhappy customer jump right on negative feedback. Happy customers just go right along with their phones. I recommend them highly.ifixtvs 7/30/12 8:00AM
Well, after 2 days my Net10 Zte Merit smart phone stopped sneding/receiving texts and calls. I read all the negative comments here first, and was nearly resigned to going back to Walmart for an exchange or money back. Then I read the positive comments and attempted online support from the main webpage. It was EXTREMELY difficult to get a response that didn't feel canned, and after a while the person I was writing to did not respond at all. Then, I read somewhere that the Net10 Facebook page had a good support section, so I tried that. After submitting my ticket, I received a response within 2 minutes. After a brief exchange, the support guy (the name at the end of the emails was Kyle) had my phone up and running. All in all, about 10-15 minutes of emailing, 5 emails total. Barring any other problems, I have to say I like the Net10 service. I have bars everywhere I go, the phone itself runs most Android apps smoothly, and the customer support seems okay, as long as you use the Facebook page. DO NOT try to use the Net10 forums. - BrandonBrandontka 6/30/12 1:28PM
Bought a Straight talk phone and card from WalMart yesterday Motorola W418G. Used ST website to activate, took over 1 hour (first clue). After the wait could make a phone call but couldn't contect to web. Called official
Straight Talk run around Center 1-877-430-2355 and was told it could talk up to 24 hours for everything to start working (second clue). Today phone still not working. Called ra Center again spoke to Straight Talk customer service rep, spend 53 minutes on phone entering strings of codes, removing battery, clearing cookies etc, nothing worked, was tranfered up? to super tech! he ran from same cue cards, same results. He stated he would send better codes over the phone to fix problem noting it may take up to 1 hour to get all the codes. After one hour I should remove and replace battery, clear cookies, etc and try again. Surprize surprize it still doesn't work. Called Straight Talk customer service again got new rep who started the same stall again. I asked for his supervisor and he hung up.Lessons learned. ST is cheap just pray you never have a problem. If you do save the run around and just throw it away go buy a better plan from another company. I'm sure April, May June some rep will say how sorry they are and just sent them the info and it starts over. Phone is going back to WalMart because this is really their problem and all should know how they work
The Fix - Bought a Net 10 LG800 phone with 750hr x 30 days. Tried to activate on web at last page was told I needed to call Rep at 1 877 836 2368 ofcourse I thought here we go again knowning how the two are tied together but didn't have that much to lose.
Called Net 10 got a very nice young lady that took all my info to port number and activate new phone. Total time on phone with rep 13 minutes. I don't know what more I could expect from anyone. Her english wasn't just like mine (texas) but she was still able to understand what I needed, very polite. Was told could it could take about 1-2 hrs but could b2 2 days. All told with porting and everything 3hrs. I'm very pleased, will never use Straight Talk or go into a WalMart again. Budbud 6/25/12 4:19PM
I earlier had left a negative comment about the slowness of getting my new phone activated. The next day it was done and I really like my phone!Joe W 6/1/12 6:46AM
whenever i call net10 customer service they are always very polite as well as helpful. they know their stuffAnonymous 4/20/12 12:56PM
I called NET10 4 times. I did not have a problem. They answered all my questions, and problems.sWEETIE 4/10/12 1:46PM
Based on all the negative reviews, I almost opted to buy a whole new phone rather than trying Net10 customer service when my phone stopped receiving text messages.
I was pleasantly surprised. I got connected with a customer service rep almost instantly- an American, who was polite and directed me to enter a few lines of code in my phone, then send myself a message to confirm that the problem was fixed. Voila.
All I can say is that's how it went for me.Michd 3/31/12 7:45PM
I guess some people just have bad luck or they expect too much. I have never had an issue that the Net10 reps could not and have not resolved. I have only had language barrier issues and I have learned to slow down and have them verify each one then service usually goes very well. I have always been treated friendly. I have used Net10 for several years and the only complaint I have is their phones have too many features disabled although I have seen some improvement recently. All in All I don't think you can beat Net10.rikitt 3/29/12 7:30AM
I have had to call them twice. They have answered my questions patiently.
After reading all these comments I was very anxious as I was changing phones and I was forced to call in. I had 4500 minutes saved and on-line system only wanted to give my new phone credit for 1100. He-whose-name-I-can't-pronounce didn't even argue with why I had so many minutes(clearly I like to type more than talk). He walked me thru the transfer and it was complete before we hung up -- although he warned me it could take up to 2 days.
BUT he chewed me out for "cussing". It was against the company policy. I used the word “stupid” to describe the red activation card with my original phone’s serial number on it -- the ink had vanished! Warning: write the serial number on the red card in real ink along with your new phone number and activation dates.kellyandkids 3/13/12 4:57PM

Here is the root of the problem: Net10 launched 2 unlimited prepaid monthly plans; $50./mth for unlimited nationwide talk, text & web, and $65./mth for unlimited talk, text, web & ILD (International Long distance + Text) Now, in order for a customer to call internationally, they must first dial one of Net10’s Access #’s (1-404-698-4700, 1-800-706-3839) and after a brief greeting the customer is prompted to enter their destination number, but upon doing this they are getting an error message which says “This service is not included in your plan” So by using the access #’s the call is not going through, HOWEVER, if the customer dials the number directly, then the call will connect perfectly.
Now, as a cellular retailer, we have taken the steps to verify that the customer is calling landlines, and Net10 even has a link on their website where you can enter a tel# and it will let you know if that # is included in their ILD plan, https://www.net10.com/direct/UnlimitedInternational?lang=en&app=NET10 and ALL the numbers that my customers are calling are being VALIDATED in this link. So it is NOT a question of a customer dialing an unauthorized (cellular) number. They are 100% dialing landlines, to approved countries, and the #’s are actually validated on Net10’s own website. So the customers continue dialing internationally directly from their cell phones knowing that they PAID for 1 month of service w/ILD.
Once Net10’s system picks up that a customer is dialing directly instead of using one of their access #’s (which do NOT work), which is usually about 5-10 days after the customer has been using the service, they CANCEL the customer’s account. They do not even extend the customer the courtesy of a warning text or call, they just cancel the number.
Now I have irate customers returning to my stores, and my employees spending countless hours on the phone with Net10’s very unprofessional customer dis-service representatives. Speaking to a customer serv rep @ Net10 is like banging your head against a brick wall. These reps just keep repeating themselves and saying that the customer has misused the service by not using the Access #, so they have cancelled the account and now the customer needs to get a new sim card and a new $50. Or $65. Replenishment Refill Card to have their service turned back on.
As a retailer of ALL major prepaid carriers, I am very clear as to how I explain this issue with Net10. They are providing access #’s that do not allow calls to verified international telephones; their system ALLOWS the customers to dial the same ILD #’s directly, but then thecustomer is being penalized by having their service cancelled within just a few days of paying for a full month of service. And, even customers on the $50./mtly rate plan, which just works for US dialing are also ALLOWED to dial directly to ILD #’s, and they too are being cancelled.
With any other carrier, if a customer must use an access # to dial internationally (eg Simple Mobile, H20, Red Pocket) the access #’s provided actually DO work. Additionally if a customer on one of these competitive carriers tries to dial an international # directly the call simply will not be allowed to go through. This is not the case with Net10’s system. Net10 allows the call to connect, (even customers on a $50./mtly plan) and then once they realize the customer is dialing directly, they cancel the customer’s account.
Now imagine us advertising and selling the product, which is supposed to be one set price for 30 days of service, and then having customers return to our stores yelling and arguing because they are being told that their service was cancelled after only 10, 12 or 15 days of service, because they called ILD directly instead of using an access # which does not work. How can we possibly continue selling this product? The very small profit we make does not justify the numerous hours spent calling in to customer service, or gaining a bad reputation from angry customers who view this company as a rip off.
Net10 needs to significantly revise their system. If they do not want customers to be able to dial ILD #’s directly, then their system should be set up where access #’s actually do work, and where direct dial to ILD #’s would automatically be restricted. Upon explaining this to many MANY service reps, and even writing to Net10 customer service on their website, their only response is that we (the store owners) should “tell your customers not to dial directly and they would not have this problem and read the terms and conditions” What an uneducated and unprofessional response, for us who are pushing their product and raising their numbers. First of all, even for a person with 20/20 vision, its impossible to sit and read their “terms & conditions” which are printed so tiny on a piece of paper inserted with a sim card, and secondly, how can I tell a customer, GROWN ADULTS, “Hey do NOT dial the ILD # directly. Be sure to use the access # which will NOT permit your call, (even though we’ve just validated your ILD # on Net10’s website) or else, you’ll have your service cut off and have to pay again, within a few days, for yet another month of service, because that’s just how Net10 works.”
Well, its not worth it to me to sell or stand behind this product. I agree with my customers that Net10 is a rip off company. And from today, we shall sell H20 or Red Pocket or Simple Mobile, and hopefully the execs @ Net10 will eventually realize how much business they are losing and fix their system. Prepaid monthly unlimited plans are now dominating the telecom industry, and although some execs seem to think that these plans are geared towards a certain demographic of people, they should realize that consumers these days are very smart, and there are too many choices out there for them to have to deal with an awful service like this.
And I know for a fact that I am not the only business owner pulling Net10 Sim cards off my shelves. Many of my partners and associates are also doing the same thing. It is simply not worth the hassle, the aggravation, and definitely not worth having customers give my stores a bad reputation on the street.
Net10 needs to get their system corrected, and properly train their customer service representatives.
