Only a handful of of the phones now are available with 300 free minutes. They Some of the phones are now supplied with the 750 minute or the Unlimited Monthly plan included. Not all of the phones come with 300 free minutes. It is important to take a look at the fine print when getting a Net 10 phone to be certain you are receiving the addional free minutes. You can buy phones starting at $14.99 but the phone will be a better deal if you spend $25 and get a phone that “Includes 300 Minutes and 60 Days of Service upon activation.”

Roll Over with Net10 Prepaid

This is no longer as straight forward as it used to be. The $25 and $50 Monthly cards do not roll over time or minutes.

So if you purchase a Net 10 “Monthly” Card you will get 30 days to use your 750 or Unlimited minutes. If you purchase a Payg Pay as you Go minute card like the $30/60 day card then your service time and minutes will roll over but you must keep your service active.

The PAYG (pay as you go) cards do roll over minutes and service time.

If you are utilizing the Monthly plan and you add a fresh card your prior balance will not carry forward. An example would be if you purchased a 750 minute/30 day card and you have 100 minutes and 12 days left and you add another 750 minute card you will end up with 750 minutes and 30 days, you will not end up with 850 minutes and 42 days.
