Independent From A Phone Contract - Net10 Wireless Is The Way To Go!

Phone contracts!  
They lock you in!  
They restrict you!  
I've never really been a fan!  Why?  Life happens!  What if you loose your job?  What if you come into financial hardship?  A contract phone plan will keep you in sometimes a HIGHER monthly payment plan, with maybe not all the bells & whistles that you hope for...and have a HIGH FEE if you choose to exit the plan before your contract is up!

All products were sent for this review/feature, free of charge, by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest feelings on the service or my experience using them.
I was delighted to have the chance to try out Net10 Wireless (the phone and 2 months $50 Unlimited Service Plan Cards) and give you my honest opinion about this carrier and if I think it's better, worse, or the same as other plans I have used in the past.
So I unpacked the instructions and logged into their website and created an account, to active the phone they sent me.  
It took all of 5 minutes, TOPS, and I was turning on the phone, downloading my GOOGLE account information on the phone and I was set to use it as my own!  
My account was created and my phone was activated!
I immediately made a phone call (with my new number), to make sure that it worked...and it did!  The call was crystal clear and sharp!  Plus, I have bad reception (with my current carrier) inside my town home, but this phone didn't seem to miss a beat with service...I didn't cut in or out and my phone call was not dropped mid conversation (yes...this happens a lot with my current service provider).
 I'm delighted already!  My current carrier must have a WEAK signal or limited service areas.
So far I have not noticed any of those issues with Net10 Wireless.
The phone model they sent me is AWESOME!  I even bought a cover for it, already, because I want this phone to last (and you never know when it could slip & fall...and there is nothing worse than a cracked screen)!  It's easy to use, the touch screen keyboard is spaced more than my other phone, so I am not bumping letters I don't intend to!  That's nice!  Makes my accuracy better and the length of time spent typing out messages is shortened!  SCORE!  I downloaded my favorite apps (was super quick and easy with the Playstore) and now this phone is totally perfect!  NO COMPLAINTS here!  I'm fully functional!

Now let's talk NO CONTRACT!  What does that mean?  It means that you basically pay as you go and you are in charge of what you pay for!  And yes they have several plan options to choose from... and you can bring your OWN phone into this program too, if you have one you're attached too or maybe you just upgraded?  I personally, will not be sad to see my "lame" phone be used as backup that I have this Samsung Galaxy 4 phone.  The contract they sent with the phone is as follows:
UNLIMITED*TALK, TEXT, DATA$5030 Days$45Auto-RefillNo International CallsAuto-RefillUnlimited* Talk / TextPicture MessagingWeb / Email and call 411*Up to 2.5GB of high-speed data
BUT THEY HAVE PLANS that starts as low as $35 a month for unlimited talk and text.
In my opinion...Net10 Wireless costs about the same as the cell phone carrier I had been using personally (which is also a no-contract provider).  This is a company that I can see "adding lines" to, when the kids reach an age where a cell phone becomes less of a want and more of a need!  That time is coming sooner than later!
Why?  Because we pay as we go! 
That way, if one of the kids doesn't do their chores, gets in trouble (attitude, at school), etc., we don't have to pay for a month of phone service, while they deal with the consequences of their actions.

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was compensated only by the products sent for this review/feature!
