    Net10 Service End Date Question

    Hi, I have one question about Net10s service. When you add more minutes, does it extend your service date like it does with Tracfone?

    Okay, great! That was the only thing I wasn't clear with. I will be switching to Net10 in a couple of weeks.

    What do you mean? 60 (2 months) add another 60 (2 months more) 4 months.
    It extends but I know not like tracfone with it's 3 months but you pay more for the same cards..

    Isn't more for the men and women who serve than those who are not in the services.

    We have hashed this question over before. The VA is more than happy to sell a trac/net10 to a non-vet or service member. You are cheating no one. I believe the VA Canteen policy states something to the effect that they sell to Vets and their caretakers. But many have found that visitors are also welcome to shop at VA canteens. Any revenue the VA can generate is a plus! I stand by my belief that you are helping Vets when buying a trac/net10 from the VA, not hurting them.

    If there are more than one phone hanging on the wall, then you can buy one without guilt that you deprived a vet of one.

    If there is only one hanging then you will have to use your own judgement.

    If there are no phones hanging, then you should feel good that they are getting one. Or feel bad that you missed out and your neighbor got it.

    Well I always believe those in need and our troops to go first. I never been to an fully operating base, so I never been to a VA canteen nor will I go and purchase things in there which are needed for our troops who protect us all. I just said that if tracfone/net10 are selling deals for our troops who need to phone home while on duty it's a good thing they're getting some perks. I know tracfone/net10 like all companies that do business with troops are getting some sort of tax of right off.

    People it's all about making money and in the process of doing the right thing for our troops to be able to make calls no matter what so do it right with a tracfone/net10 cellphone.

    If you buy the 200 min. card for net10 you only get 30 days of service.

    If you buy the 60 min. card for Trac you get 90 days of service.

    For people like me who don't use that many minutes per month, Trac is much cheaper.

    Wait it's 300 minutes for $30 and 60 days of service with NET10.
    Tracfone has the 60 minutes $19 and 90 days of service + doubler = 120 minutes
    Tracfone has the 120 minutes $29 and 90 days of service
    + doubler = 240 minutes Tracfone has the 200 minutes for $39 and 90 days of service + doubler = 400 minutes

    I still have my LG-225 doubler I am not giving that up just yet. The Samsung T-401G is a nice media center cell phone which I am geared up to use and still I got 600 minutes for free on it so I not complaining that will last until 3/2010 of service. If that was a tracfone it would be extra 2 months so 5/2010.

    I just found 6 more at another Kmart, but I stop and think will the wife use all it's features? I was asking her last night. I get the feeling nope! Maybe the T-301G would be more ideal for her plus I could transfer her number and leftover minutes so should would have better phone than the LG-225. I think I'll stick it out for her until Tracfone comes out with something different plus I got all they extra LG-300s now I haven't even used them.

    I'll get two more and give them out as xmas gifts minus the extra 300 minute cards. I'll just say" Merry Christmas" Here you go.. 300 minutes of talk time!

    I don't think any of the Net10 phones at the VA will work with any overseas cell phone system. Both because of the frequencies and because of the Terms of Service.

    Has Net10 always extended the service date?

    Seems to be a typo showing 90 days for this card and the card reads 60 days.


    This one shows 120 days


    This one 60 days


    300m / 60 days + 300m / 60 days + 300m / 60 days + 300m / 60 days = 1,200 m / 240 days In my case I had the LG-300 for 20 days so I didn't get back the days so it was 222 rounded days. So if I go out and buy another 300m / 60 days that would add 282 days or whatever the days count is now and give me 1,500 minutes or whatever the minutes I have now left.
