I was a Net 10 customer for 9 years. They were ok as long as everything was running smoothly. Getting in touch with customer service is difficult should a problem need attention. I was on auto pay for my phone. I purchased a new phone with another carrier and cancelled service. The same day, as I was changing over service, I was debited for a month's service, nearly $50. They would not refund the money. Bad Policy folks.
Tried to transfer acct. to new phone. After hour and a half over two days with three techs I was told it would take 15-20 minutes. Nope. Called several times during day and robot said it would take several HOURS. Day later went back on chat. Tech tells me transfer cannot be effected because of phone incompatibility. They could not have told me this when I requested transfer?! Meanwhile old phone no longer works. Just a bunch of bozos.

I have been an Active Net 10 Customer since my 1st Cell Phone over 10 years so far, in the last week or so I have not been able to send or receive pictures or access my Browser. Net 10 Customer service is sad and worthless. It appears I must buy a new phone buy a new Data Plan. I have had same service as of day one but things changed without letting me know something first. After my Minutes are finished/used up I am going to another Provider and Phone. No Loyalty with these Net 10 Pirates, They could Care less about their Customers.
Ordered a new phone + plan from them almost 3 weeks ago, which was supposed to be sent with 2-day shipping, but received nothing. Now this was not their fault since mailing was up to the shipping company, but after talking to 7-8 different people over the past 3 weeks for a total on-air time of many hours, and not being able to get a refund, it has become a nightmare. I cannot sign up for a new plan or purchase a new phone from any other company until I get back the refund I paid to Net10.
Every time I call they say that they are working on it and it will be taken care of in 24-48 hours (initially they were telling me 3-5 days, but it became shorter as they kept "escalating" the call). Of course nothing happens during the specified time frame and when I call back it is another hour on hold as they "escalate" it from one person to another, and that person "keeps checking" on something. Then they say it will be resolved in 24-48 hours (the last time it was another 72 hours, but wasn't I told that every time I call?)
I think this is a fraudulent scam. Corporate is collecting people's money, but no one can contact them and they have armies of low-cost telephone customer support people to shield them so they can steal people's money and not have to deal with it. Will never use Net10 ever and I suggest you do not either, no matter what kind of promotion they offer. I did not investigate reviews enough before buying a phone from them (of course the sales people have no restrictions on what they can do, but after you've paid, impossible to get anything done). I thought that since I was buying a top-of-the-line brand new phone and they have access to the Verizon network, I would not have to deal with their customer service, but I never thought that I would not receive the phone. So anyone can have need to deal with their customer service at some point.
I've had NET10 and their LG phones for 10 years with great service. I was notified in August that I had to buy a new phone as they were migrating to a new system. I Bought a new Samsung Galaxy A10e from NET10 with their required 24 month plan. The phone will let me call out, but the touch screen will not let me answer incoming calls. I have to go to missed calls and return calls. I've talked to over a dozen tech reps and senior reps with the only result, that they want me to buy a second new phone and send the first back for them to check. They provide no warranty on the new phones they sell. If you need to buy a new phone buy it somewhere else and save the headache of dealing with NET10 NON Support.
I have had this service in different phones not only mine years. No discounts, no nothing and I pay high dollar cards. I am looking for better. $65 and you think it be fast service and not slow speed. Not Happy and with this virus the cards raise? Looking for better places. Now $70 cards really??
If you're looking for a phone service please do not waste your time with this company! Their customer service is terrible. I have been with this company for close to 10 years mainly because it was affordable and the only service that would work in my rural area. However they have not once offered me a discount on service or even acknowledge me as a loyal customer for this long. Whenever I have an issue it takes a large amount of patience to just deal with their representative which are never easy to comprehend. This company is definitely only looking for profit not to please its customer's. I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau.
The speed of the data when not on wifi is absolutely terrible. I did a speed test. The results for the download speed is 0.06Mps. When I am not on wifi, I can not even get internet at all. Net10 is a bad company in my opinion. Back in the day, dial up internet over a land line phone was a lot better than net10. I would give 0 stars if I was able to. The service is very bad and the phones they sell are absolutely junk. The CPU on the phone over heats as well. Net10 should be ashamed of having terrible data speeds, phones that are junk, etc. Come on net10, get with the program. I am considering switching companies and would not recommend Net10 to anyone.
I have been a Net10 customer since 2006, and I have NEVER had any problems until this year. I have an older phone, a Nokia 1100. All I wanted was the ability to make and receive calls and text. Over the years, I have purchased additional minutes every other month, either with a phone card or through the Net10 website. As I said - NEVER had a problem until this year. I purchased minutes three times this year, the most recent was today (6-6-20).
With all three purchases, I have had the same problem wherein the service end date does not change and my newly purchased minutes are not added to my phone. With the two previous incidents, I spent frustrating HOURS on with various customer service reps trying to get the problem resolved. The problem clearly lies with Net 10, because each time, they were able to fix the problem and get my service back on track. Most of the time, the CSRs have been patient and courteous; today, however, the CSR insisted that the problem must be with my phone.
On their end, he said the additional minutes and updated service end date are showing up, but I explained that the information did not transfer to my phone. I explained the situation over and over again to the CSR, also telling him over and over how this has happened before and Net 10 fixed it. He just kept repeating that their system shows the added minutes and new service end date. I asked to be transferred to another CSR; I was put on hold only to be disconnected a few minutes later (which has also happened before). Another problem I have experienced is the Net 10 service area - there are huge areas where my phone shows NO BARS, which is a big problem if I need to make a call. It's another problem that I didn't have before this year. I guess the only resolution is to buy a different phone and sign up with a different company.
Avoid this company like the plague. I've been a customer since 2011. The service USED to be reliable until 2020. Now, I have very frequent service interruptions for no reason whatsoever. In the beginning, it would happened overnight. I would wake up in the morning and SOMETHING would always be off. Phone Service. Internet. Voicemail. Texting. Every month, I would have some kind of outage. Sometimes 2 or 3 times in the same month.
The customer service line seems to be answered in South America. Most of rep's English comprehension skills are horrible. No matter what you say, they mindlessly read a script back to you that doesn't address your issue. Most of them don't have a clue about how to handle technical problems. Their solution to EVERY problem is, "Turn your phone off and turn in back on again." Phone Service. Texting. Voicemail. Internet. All going out at the worst possible times and it took me an average of 5 HOURS to find a customer service rep intelligent enough to fix the issue. You will NEVER get your issue resolved with the first call. NEVER.
Net10/Tracfone does not own any cell towers. They piggy-back off of the towers of REAL cell phone companies like Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. I am looking for a job. I have a video interview in the morning. All I have is my phone. Of course, the internet went down. I have just spent nearing 6 HOURS dealing with over 15 different reps to get my internet service turned back on. When I find a job, one of my first priorities will be to leave this sorry excuse for a cell phone company. If you are looking for a job, if you have someone in your life who MUST be able to contact you, if you need your cell phone for your livelihood, etc. DO NOT activate with Net10/Tracfone. Read all of the other reviews. We can't all be lying.
