Net 10

Ok, I rant.

My net10 phone had 2056 minutes on it as I don't talk a lot.  <lj user="martes"> phone had 221 minutes on it.

I called net10 to move 1000 minutes from my phone to hers.  I asked them three times during the conversation if they could do this and they kept saying yes.

A t the end of the conversation, ALL  2056 minutes have been moved to her phone.  The 60 days of airtime on my phone have disappeared.  My phone is now nonfunctional and cannot be reactivated without a new sim chip.

The person's supervisor, also reading off a script, repeatedly informed me as to how this is what I actually wanted and there is no way to reverse it.

My only remaining option was to complete what they were already doing - whicvh is completely transfer all of my service to the new phone.  This makes my original phone a deactivated piece of junk, so it is now in the trash.

Silver lining to the cloud - <lj user="martes"> now not only has a cool new phone - but also the phone number everybody has memorised, which is in fact my original L.A. Cellular number..  This make sthe seventh time its been transplanted.

Nobody knew what the number to the new phone was anyway.

Sorry to hear of the dippy service... but thanks for the heads up.

I am still experimenting with MetroPCS ($30) and StraightTalk ($30).

I drove all the way to San Diego and had a long conversation that only dropped once (where ATT also drops, and the nuclear power plant). Despite the online maps saying coverage was sketchy in San Diego, I had no problems at all.

So far my only main complaint about the phone (Nokia 1006) is that it is a bit too sensitive.. often hitting the wrong buttons ;P
No worries about minutes or texting is nice.

We had trouble last month with our daughter's Net 10 phone. We had been making monthly payments into her account, but for mysterious reasons, the unused minutes she had disappeared and they stopped giving her any more. Lute called their customer service repeatedly, but somehow or other, the problem we had did not fit their flowchart of How-To-Deal-With-Customer.

In the end we wound up just canceling the service and getting her a different phone.

By the end of 2010 I intend to be on a regular phone again with either an Iphone or an Android, depending on what looks better at the time.
