Net10 Coolness

Two new deals related to Net10...

1. Net10 now has a program similar to Tracfone's Value Plans. $15 a month (charged to your bank account or credit card) gets you 150 minutes. Go online and you can get buckets of 50, 100 or 150 minutes at the same 10 cents a minute if you run out and are on an "Easy Minutes" plan, as Net10 calls it. To me, since Net10 has very little in the way of promotional codes and such, this is probably the best way to pay for their service...certainly better than having to buy airtime cards at the local store. This is sort of reminiscent of Sprint's old Fair & Flexible plan, which charged overages in $5 increments but gave you a LOT of minutes for that $5, whether it was 50 (later) or 100 (earlier). So in short if you want a Cingular, T-Mobile or Dobson CellularOne plan with no contract and just need talking and occasional texting...and don't use a ton of minutes...this is it.

2. Net10 now has some sweet deals on the refurbished Nokia 1100s. How sweet? Try free with a 1\3 discount on airtime! The regular refurbished Nokia 1100 (which comes with 300 minutes) is $19.99 right now...with free shipping...so with tax you're getting about 7 cents per minute with a free phone. Or you can pay three times as much for the phone and a 600 minute airtime card...three times as many minutes. Heck, you could sell the card for $50 and get the phone for free really and 5 cent minutes! Not bad...

When looking at the value plan FAQ, i noticed there is no w370 or cg225....weird

There is a thing that for all other models you must go to my account and update though.
