Net10 is one of a handful of prepaid carriers under the TracFone umbrella. Like its parent company, Net10 offers pay-as-you-go and monthly plans. It also contracts with each of the four major cell phone carriers, so Net10 customers use the nationwide networks of Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T or Verizon, depending on their phone and where they live.

Pay As You Go

Minutes expire after 30, 60, 90 or 180 days, depending on the plan. Plans include a combination of minutes and text messages, with each text counting as one minute. In most cases, any unused minutes are carried over when you renew your plan. The exception is the 1,000-minute, 30-day plan: If you don’t use those minutes within the 30-day window, you lose them.

  • 200 minutes and/or texts (30 days): $20
  • 1,000 minutes and/or texts (30 days): $25
  • 300 minutes and/or texts (60 days): $30
  • 600 minutes and/or texts (60 days): $45
  • 900 minutes and/or texts (90 days): $60
  • 1,500 minutes and/or texts (180 days): $100
