I purchased a Net10 Android on 12/24/11 at the Best Buy Mobile phone in the Avenues Mall, Jacksonville, FL. I had a Net10 phone previously and requested to have the new phone activated and the number transferred.
This was not done properly. I struggled for more than two months to get the phone working correctly. My husband and I spent more than 12 hours total on the phone with Net10 trying to get everything working properly. Net10 deactivated my phone often, for no apparent reason claiming that I had run out of airtime.
I signed up repeatedly for automatic bill pay to no avail. Somehow a second phone number became associated with my phone in the Net10 system even after my actual number was reactivated which hindered anyone from being able to resolve my problems. No one could seem to get the correct number associated with my phone in Net10's system. I knew what my phone number is and if someone dialed it, my phone rang.
Yet Net10 insisted that the number in their system was correct. If they called it, someone else answered and they were befuddled. Sometimes I could make calls on my phone, sometimes I couldn't. My text function stopped working after a month and was never repaired.
Even after hours on the phone with Net10 they could not seem to understand my problem or how to fix it. I finally became so dissatisfied with Net10's service that I went to T-Mobile, bought a new phone and signed a two year contract. I had hoped to avoid a contract hence originally signing up with Net10, however I was forced to switch to a company that knows how to do business after suffering through such incompetency at Net10 for so long. I spent $149 on a phone that never worked right with the phone number I wanted for any period of time.
Please do not contact me in an effort to repair the phone.
Only contact me if you are willing to do the right thing and provide me a refund. Net10 is awful and I will tell everyone I know what a bad experience I had.
