Net10 Cellular has always been 10 cents a minute, PAYG (pay as you go) . Until just lately you always received 300 minutes and sixty days of service when you activated your new Net10 phone. They have modified their charges for phones and for minutes. They now offer you Monthly plans which provide 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 are also offering phones that come with a 750 minute one month phone card at Net10.com. All of the Net 10 phones do not come with 300 free minutes. Be sure to take a look at the fine print when getting a Net 10 Prepaid phone to ensure that you are getting free minutes. The majority of the under $25 phones will not come with 300 free minutes.
Roll Over with Net 10 Cellular
Carry over is now different for various Net10 plans. The $25 and $50 Monthly cards do not roll over time or minutes.
So if you purchase a Net10 Wireless “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.
Plan Changes with Net 10 Wireless
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 just by adding another pay as you go card. Don’t forget the Monthly cards do not roll over. Once you add a card with monthly service your previous card will become invalid.
Monthly Card Warning
If you are using the Monthly service plan and you add on another card your previous balance will not roll forward. For instance if you bought a 750 minute/30 day card and you have 100 minutes and 12 days left and you add another 750 minute card you will just end up with 750 minutes and 30 days, you will not end up with 850 minutes and 42 days. The Net10 Cellular Three Cents per Minute Plan is available for $25 per month.
It will cost at least $15 per month to keep your Net 10 Wireless phone active.
