    Default Three Weeks on Net10 ATT

    I have been using cell phones since 1994 and I have never been more satisfied with the actual service than I am now.
    Customer Service Reps are not the best but for $85 a month for two phones, it can not be beat. I am one happy camper

    Yes it can, T-Mobile $30 a month plan x 2 at $60 a month.

    False...he can actually talk on his phone (not limited to 100 minutes) and he's using the broader coverage of AT&T which is way better than T-Mobile. It's cool you like your plan. But let's not pretend it's the best out there. I got on it just to test out T-Mobile and I ran through the 100 minutes in the first 3 days of the month like most people would. Net10 gives unlimited talk and text. Most people still use their cell phones to talk and not type everything. The $30/month T-Mobile plan is a niche plan.

    Absolutely correct, in addition in an awful lot of buildings here in NYC the T-M signal just does not penetrate well enough or at all to be useful to even make a phone call.
    I know this from the 4 months I was on T-M.

    Happy Net10 ATT customer here. Came from big red gave up unlimited data. Only have 1.5gb hard capped with Net10 ATT but if you use WiFi smart 1.5gb is manageable. Net10 customer service is ok. There technical support is a whole other story.

    Tried Tmo but like already said I use my phone to make calls. Unlimited voice is a must have. 100 minuets is not enough. Tried the VoIP thing but just to much to manage. I just want to dial the phone not worry if my VoIP is on or I have a good data connection.

    Sounds good. I was not familiar with Net 10 and no info was posted in the original post. Also I was referring to the other $30 plan which included 1500 minutes talk time.

    Add one more happy Net10 AT&T Nexus 4 customer. I tried TMo but I got zero coverage in my house and not much better elsewhere.

    Being able to buy cheap refill cards on eBay makes it even better.

    You can throw me on the list too for Net10 satisfied customers. My experience is very similar to those mentioned above. More than anything else it comes down to needing coverage indoors. @pontiac005's mention of Tmo $30 plan is a great if you don't need data and you are satisfied with Tmo's coverage.

    I also have had very good service with Net10 on AT&T. I actually use this line as my 2nd phone which I mainly use for keeping up with other OS's. I normally switch it between a WP8 device (currently a Lumia 521, but had a Lumia 920) and an iPhone 5. I have T-Mobile's $30 plan in my Nexus 4, which is my primary phone. Due to coverage where I live and the 100 minutes on T-Mobile, I'm tempted to switch my main line to Net10, but the data is holding me back. I do some video streaming, and most months 1.5 GBs wouldn't be enough, not to mention Net10's view towards streaming.
    Current lineup: Nexus 5 (primary device), Lumia 920, Moto G, and Lumia 520. There, I did it; I updated my signature!

    In planning on switching (currently on ATT, but am SIM unlocked), and I have to device between Net10, and AIO Wireless.

    How is the service on Net10? 4G? Good affordable plans?

    I'm into my 3rd month on NET10 using ATT an am very satisfied thus far with my service. For $50/month you can't beat it. I tried TMo on Solevei but found TMo sucked in my area. If you use WiFi were ever you can like I do the 1.5 gig data limit is no issue. I normally use less than 3/4 gig. I debated a long time on giving up the great service coverage of Big Red but there's no looking back for me being on a Nexus phone on a prepaid service month to month with no contact locking me up for 2 years!

    I don't know for certain, but I don't think that AT&T Net10 has 4G LTE speeds. They operate on AT&T's hspa+21 network. My speeds on AT&T Net10 seem to average 4-5 mbps.

    I don't know about AIO. AIO's original announcement was that they would limit speeds to 4 mbps, but I think I just read within the last week that they are going to carry an LTE phone so it would seem will have 4G LTE.

    AT&T Go Phone prepaid does allow 4G LTE. You might check them out. I think it's $60 for unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of data.

    You should consider AT&T's new plans with GoPhone.

    GoPhone:

    $60/month
    2GB LTE data
    unlimited talk
    unlimited text

    Net10:

    $50/month
    unlimited data but throttled after 1.5GB HSPA+, Net10 also frowns on streaming and using more than 100MB/day from what I understand
    unlimited talk
    unlimited text

    One tiny plus for Net10 is that it is $45 if you set up autopay. But people have reported problems in this forum with Net10 with customer service, mms messaging, and data problems when travelling. I have yet to see a one problem posted for anybody on Go Phone prepaid, and I could imagine having brick and mortar stores available for customer service would be a great added benefit.

    "You should consider AT&T's new plans with GoPhone......."

    I looked on the At&T site about the plan, but it doesn't seem like they sell a SIM card with it. Do I just buy any old ATT micro-SIM card, buy a cheap GOpPHONE just for the card, or what?

    Thanks.

    I am pretty sure you get them at an AT&T brick and mortar store. They might give them to a customer for free.

    So, I did further research, and on AIO it is 55 for unlimited talk web and text. I did see that they throttle at the 2.5 GB limit, but it's only down to regular 3G speeds (~256kbps). I will have to look further into Net10..

    GoPhone looks like a premium candidate right now. Thank you all for the input!

    It all comes down to what you use your service for and what you can get by with to say what you need to spend. For me I get by fine with the $50 service on NET10 and usually don't use half of my allotment of 1.5 GB and LTE is not important because I rarely stream music and video is just watching the occasional news clip or YouTube video on something. Now if you do more of that on line streaming where you don't have WiFi then that extra $10 a month to get the 2gig of LTE service might be worth it to you.

    One service is better over another if you get your money worth out of it. I'd basically be waisting $10 extra a month paying for the new ATT GoPhone service. Others who stream data a lot more off WiFi than I do it would be worth the $10.

    Well, I have Wi-Fi at my house, and I am a college student, so my university has Wi-Fi as well. I just check Facebook, Twitter, and watch YouTube videos. I do stream a TON of my music, as I have almost all my music in the cloud, and I am subscribed to the Google Play streaming service (I mean c'mon.. 8 bucks a month for unlimited streaming?.. Can't pass it up.)

    What do you think?

    I'm signed on to Google Play streaming service for the $8. Signed onto it the day they started the new service. I really like it. I already used their cloud service with all my music there and not on my phone or my N7. So yes I steam music, but most if my listening time is at home when I'm on WiFi. Again my less need for LTE speed or a lot of GB data service. So what I saved on my phone service getting off of Verizon and going to NET10 made it affordable for me to use something like Google Play.

    Thank you sooooo much for the AT&T tip. I didn't realise that they had changed their plans. I too have been a 90% happy customer with Net10, but that final 10% is down to MMS - I have a Lumia 920 and try as I might, I can't get their settings to work. The best I have been able to do is send MMSs but cannot receive them. I have scoured forums endlessly for a solution, and as you can probably imagine Net10 customer service/tech support is a non-starter. I'll be moving to the $60 AT&T plan because the peace of mind not having to deal with that (and the LTE and the extra 0.5GB) is worth that extra $10-15.

    I'm 2 weeks in, but won't be renewing. Terrible way to do business for Net10 if you lose customers for something as simple as this.

    I am also a big fan of Net10. I finally got my MMS working using the Tweakker App.https://tinyurl.com/kwclnco

    Speeds are 2-6down and 1-2 up although I've seen 4 up before. Fast enough for anything I do.

    I also use Chrome Beta that has compression for web pages that saves almost 50% when surfing. Helps manage usage. I use WiFi when I can and keep usage below 1G/month. Coming from Straight Talk, I kept being throttled. Hasn't happened with Net10. Going on 3 months now.

    I got rid of Net10 on AT&T finally today. If you can get AIO I recommend going with them. Acutally, I HIGHLY recommend against Net10. I thought I did my research but the internet connection on Net 10 has been awful since I started with them. They are having problems with the APN and if you go to their forums right now you will see dozens if not hundreds of people complaining. I just simply gave up, it was so unreliable. I live in a strong coverage area for AT&T and it is not network congestion it is something wrong with NET10. I got my AIO Sim and everything has been 10 times better. I should've done AIO to begin with. Plus stupid Net10 keeps removing my autorenew feature and SPAMs you all of the time. Garbage!
