    Default Switching to Net10

    I'm currently on att with very good coverage where I live. I'm paying more or less close to 200 for two smart phones. If I removed some optional stuff I'll still pay about 180-190 with taxes. Can anybody think of a good reason not to switch to N10 on the att network. I'll be giving up LTE but hspa+ coverage is excellent. Bottom line is ill be saving about $90 a month. So far it makes sense to me. The cancelacin fees on both phones will pay for itself in about 6 months. What's the downside?

    Why do you say that? I was looking at Net10 today and I talked to Net10 directly and to a local Net10 reseller and they both told me if I brought my AT&T Note 2 to them, it would work on 4G and LTE the same as if it was activated on AT&T directly. Were they BS'ing me?

    They were trying to get you to sign up blindly. Net10, Straight Talk, etc... does not have LTE.

    Thanks, austriak. I continued looking around for more info and that was the impression I was getting from other threads here and on XDA.

    The only thing it left me wondering was if Net10 used to not have access to LTE, but if they've changed recently and do have LTE now.

    FYI, MetroPCS is offering Unlimited Talk, Text and Data on 4G LTE for $55/month.

    But, it is CDMA and it looks like it's on the Sprint network. So, Unlimited LTE - if you stand in this one spot....

    Hi,

    Did you get your S3 to work with Net10? I still can't get data on my S3 and it been really tough to get answers from their tech support! What APN settings did you use?

    Thanks
    God bless...

    Just for the record, I emailed Net10 and got email back from their Tech Support stating that AT&T phones on Net10 DO get 4G LTE service. But, I have not made the leap yet, so I cannot confirm that it works.

    You can get data on net10 on an s3. There are some tricks to make even faster. Don't use the proxy. You do need the mms settings and the apn.

    Does anyone have any experience with net10? Getting a nexus 4 soon and want to avoid a contract.

    big concern is not loosing my number (straight talk seems like they will drop you without a good reason).

    I use Net10 with the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2 on AT&T's version. I get the 4G symbol on my devices. Here are the APN settings I currently use

    APN Name : Net10
    APN: tfdata
    MMSC: http://mms-tf.net
    MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com
    MMS Port: 80

    Just an FYI...Net10 and Strait Talk are owned by the same company. However Net10 seems to have real public rules about data. Data is the issue with ST users. Spend the extra few bucks on Net10 and don't lose your account! Thats what I would do. I have att for cheap so I'm sticking with them for now.

    Default Switching to Net10

    These settings will definitely work for mms etc. I purchased and installed teatherme in cidia to gain access to network settings which was the hardest thing to figure out. It took me a while to figure out the process and settings necessary to make it work. There is lots of erroneous information in the various forums as to how to get this working.

    Att just said they are limiting net10 phones to 1.5gig of data.

    You can buy them at: Best Buy, Gamestop, Target (sometimes), K-Mart (sometimes). I got everything I needed to switch over my AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3, at my local Gamestop.

    If you want to save a few bucks, you can buy a standard sim on ebay for 99cents and use a template to cut it.

    ^^^ This^^^ Ordered my Net10 sim on ebay for .99 free shipping.. In transient. I also ordered a sim cutter on ebay for $4.00 free shipping. My current ST Tmo sim came in standard size and I cut it down with scissors with no problems before I know about the sim cutter tool.
