Purchased a Net 10 phone through Home shopping Network for $69. What sold me was the "unlimited talk text internet and 411" for the sum of $30 month for the life of the phone as long as a credit/debit card was placed on file.
Activated the phone as instructed provided a debit card to be kept on file, and every month following the phone was de-activated and i would have to call. NEVER rec'd the advertised pricing and i was charged 54.66 month.
Second NET10 phone was purchased two weeks after the first one from an advertisement found on the SALT WATER FISHERMAN web page. This NET10 special was a phone purchased for $69 and along with it, unlimited talk text web 411 for a period of one year for $30 plus tax.
Once again it was de-activated every month, and i would have to call and wait on hold for hours, only to get a rep who icould barely understand.
Finally this month (June 2012) when they once again de-activated my phone, i was told i had to purchase airtime card or pay their normal rate of $50 for unlimited service. So i only recieved the "special price " for four months, and spent countless hours on hold every month trying to keep the phone activated.
