Have you heard about Net10 Wireless yet? I hope you haven’t because I want to be the first to tell you about it. This way you’ll get super excited and then you’ll go tell your friends that you heard it from me, first!
Anyway, Net10 Wireless is this really cool concept where there are no contracts, you get your choice of super cool phone models (including those that run on Android), and this:
- Coverage on the best networks such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, etc.
- Up to half the cost of plans with contracts
- Unlimited calls, text, and Internet to Mexico and other countries including cell phones
- Available in over 90,000 stores across the USA including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Walgreens, CVS and Radio Shack.
It’s especially great for families with teenagers because you can shell out $50 for an airtime card and have the phone and data services available to them – unlimited! That price cannot be beat. At least not without a contract.
I had the pleasure of taking the LG Optimus Net out for a ride. I had my 14 year old nephew set it up using the easy activation process detailed in the little booklet that it comes with. It took only a few minutes and it was up and running. Trust me, if a 14 year old can do it, then so can anyone else.
But for the life of me, I could not find my airtime card to actually get it up and running! I know… I know. So sorry! That part will have to come later. For now, I’ll tell you about the great LG Optimus.
Because the LG Optimus is an Android phone, it comes pre-loaded with all the great Google Apps like Google Calendar, Google Talk, YouTube, etc. It has Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the OS version. The LG Optimus Net is a full-featured smartphone that has the amenities of all other new smartphones with a touchscreen, virtual QWERTY keyboard, Swype, and a 3.2 megapixel camera/ camcorder.

I do like how chunky if feels in my hand and how easily it maneuvers. A light swipe will get you from one screen to the other. It’s easy to organize the apps and thanks to its battery charger with removable cable, the phone can be hooked up directly to a computer and have music uploaded to the phone! I like being able to sync the Calendar app on the phone with the Google Calendar on my computer so I can take it with me wherever I go. I also like that it’s not pre-loaded with dozens of games. Honestly, I have a smart phone right now and the last thing that I do with it is play games. I take loads of pictures and videos with it, but I don’t play games.
This smart phone is made for both adults and teenagers. It’s so easy to customize, easy to use and even easier to afford thanks to the flat rate/no contract deal with Net10 Wireless.
