Contacted seller ph-media about shipping costs, it was sent in a regular envelope with a .44 cent stamp. Seller informed me amazon set the shipping rate & he can't do anything about it. Amazon informed me that was NOT true & gave me the full shipping cost back in a promotional gift certificate. They did that because the seller misrepresented to me that amazon sets the shipping rate. Seller harrased me in direct emails 4 or 5 times. I had to threaten to contact amazon about seller to get him to stop.
The biggest reason I'm writing this review, though, is because seeing this card sold for $38.99 + $4.99 shipping and handling really bugs me. Don't pay that much. You don't actually need a physical card to activate or add minutes - this exact same card is always available online (and instantly added to your phone or put in your Airtime Reserve) for $30 plus tax on Net10's website. Paying nearly fifteen dollars extra - half again the price of the card - is highway robbery. Net10's whole gimmick is that you pay 10c/minute.
They have other options, too, now, some which are significantly cheaper per minute, so shop around on their website a bit to see what fits you best.
I've also tried Straight Talk's bring-your-own phone programme and I have to mention that their unlimited cards are cheaper than Net10's. Basically, shop around, explore your options, and don't pay more than you have to.
So far I have found Net10 to be a good deal for us. It's saving us lots of money on phones, and although we've had to settle for older technology phones to get Verizon towers (the smart phone running Gingerbread, two versions back - at least - from today's latest), coverage has been decent. In a trip from the NY metro area to South Carolina (near Atlanta, not the coast), we found only a few areas where a Verizon contract phone had coverage and Net10 did not. Our AT&T phone fared worse - drained its battery twice in Asheville NC looking for service. In fairness, I have no contract AT&T phone to compare to, but some with contract phones said the service was sporadic in the area. This is why we chose to sacrifice technology for better coverage Verizon offers on the east coast. I had to use customer service to set up 3 of our 4 phones. They were okay, although every technician asked me to be patient while their systems were updating, and this happened more than once in each call. For one call to troubleshoot Bluetooth, it took a while to get my point across - a combination of my not knowing the proper term and the technician not being a native English speaker. At one point he said, "let me speak to my supervisor" and I could hear them speaking in Spanish in the background. Anyhow, they have always been helpful and polite, if perhaps not the same level of professionalism we came to expect from Verizon. It's too bad V's prices are so high... For now, I'm recommending Net10 to people who don't typically have tons of issues with phones and want to spend a lot less for service.
