NET10 House Rules for the Modern Family

You can add an extra family member for as little as $40/month on NET10’s family plan, making it easy to save money and get the whole family on board. Whether your NET10 family consists of friends, roommates, siblings, or cousins, setting a few ground rules will help keep things on the right track.

Here are our top five tips for cell phone etiquette that will keep a harmonious household.

  1. Establish phone-free zones and times.
    • No cell phones at the dinner table, at birthday parties, or while watching a movie together. Whenever you’re spending quality time, leave those phones in another room.
  2. Power down all cell phones at night.
    • Kids playing games on their phones late into the night? Have an enthusiastic friend that likes to text you non-stop? Turning off all of the cell phones in the house after 9 p.m. will help you and your family get a full night's sleep.
  3. Stay on top of costs.
    • Remind your family that downloading wallpapers, ring tones, apps and games may cost additional money and that they should only do so after asking permission.
  4. Encourage your kids to check-in wherever they go.
    • Whether they’re heading to a friend’s house after baseball practice, or flying to Florida for a visit with Grandma, get your kids in the habit of keeping you posted. It’s not only courteous, but will put you mind at ease.
  5. Stop counting minutes.
    • No more cutting that conversation short because you’re running low on minutes.
Whether you’re an individual, a couple, or a family of four, we have the perfect plan for you no matter who’s in your household. Pay by the month or pay as you go, but never, ever pay more than the minutes and data you use. Learn more about our family plans here.
