How Net10 Works‎ > ‎

Checking Your Net10 Voicemail

Checking your Net10 Voice mail without Using Minutes

Once you have set up your voicemail you can check it from any other phone you want. Call your phone number from a different phone and do not answer your Net10 phone. As it goes to the answering machine put in your password and your voice mail will pick up and allow you to check your voice mail. If you turn off your phone before you call it, the system will send you directly to voicemail where you can put in your code and access it. This is spin-nt10body5-10.

How to find the Best Deal on a Net10 Phone

I usually recommend getting your Net10 Phone online. You will almost always have the best variety of phones. I always check for Net10 Purchase Discount codes. Generally the discount codes will save you three to ten dollars on your Net10 phone purchase. Another option is Target and many convenience stores usually have the phones in stock but they normally only have the cheapest models.

Can I get a Smartphone for Net10 Prepaid?

No the Samsung CDMA R451c and the GSM T401G are as close as Net10 comes to a Smartphone.

How Net10 Pay as You Go Works

Net10 is a easy Cost Per Minute prepaid cell phone company. Net10 is owned by Tracfone and operates nearly the same way with different rates and better phones.

First you will purchase a Net10 and a Net10 Card. You can only use a Net10 for Net10 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.

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 type 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 minutes directly from the phone or from the Net10 website. You will add the 15 digit PIN code into your phone.

You always want to check for a Bonus code when you are adding a Net10 card. Bonus Codes are a five digit number that you enter while adding a card to your phone.. Check out the Net10 Bonus Codes.

Net10 Service Time

The $20, $30, $45, $60 and $100 Net10 Cards all give you 30 days of service per $15 spent along with the 10 cent minutes. 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.
