How to Talk to Your Parents About: Peer Pressure


The Williams bought a yellow lab so you followed suit with a poodle and it ate all of your favorite shoes. You got the same sports car the Smiths got and it broke down on the side of the highway. It’s time for the Joneses to start keeping up with you. Fear not, you’ll be the new trend-setter on the block in no time at all.



Be the Smart Family on the Block
Want to reduce your phone bill, get the same service on the same carriers, and still be able to have any phone you’d like? If you answered “Yes,” it’s time to make the change to NET10! Here’s why:

Flexible Plans
Are you an individual? A couple? A family of four? We have the perfect plan for you no matter who’s in your household. Pay by the month or as you go, but never, ever pay more than the minutes and data you use. It’s just $50/month for domestic unlimited or $65/month for international unlimited. And you’ll never have to sign a contract.

Coverage
We've partnered with the country's top carriers to bring you the network coverage you need. The only difference is the cost– you pay less with Net10 because we don't pay to build or maintain all those towers. So you get the same dependable coverage for half the cost.

Phones
Buy one of our Android NET10 Wireless Phones or bring your own and use a NET10 SIM. Either way, use the phone you choose and start calling, texting, surfing, and saving!

Are you sold? Good. Now spread the word to the Williams, the Jones and the Smiths. Feels good to be the trend-setter, doesn’t it?

NET10 Battery Saving Tips


We’ve all experienced it - the dreaded low battery. It will strike at the most inopportune time and has the ability to throw off your day.  Don’t you worry – to cut down on these occurrences; we’ve gone ahead and pulled together five easy and effective tips that will keep you in the green.  Learn them, commit them to memory and you’ll never be running on empty.

Use the tips below so you'll never have to see this again.

1    1.       Turn off your phone

      Not using your cell phone? Just turn it off! This is a simple way to conserve battery life. Ideal times to do this would be at right before you go to bed or after business hours. Also, if you usually find yourself in an area with little to no reception (i.e. in a subway station or remote area), be sure to power down.

      Don’t charge your cell phone intermittently throughout the day! Wait until you’re it’s about to die and then charge it. It’s very important to let it charge to 100 percent. Be sure to do this on a daily basis.

      Did you know the vibrate function uses additional battery power? Try turning your ring tone volume as low as possible instead of resorting to vibrate.

      Know that you’re running low on juice or it will be a while until your next charge? Avoid browsing the web, using the camera or playing a game.

      Yes- this is an obvious, but very affective tip! Sure, it will take some time convincing friends and family that you’re keeping calls short to save battery life (WARNING: this will come off like an excuse to end a call early), but you’ll be amazed at how long you’ll prolong your battery life.
