Not a happy camper - text messages cost more than Tracfone
I just purchased my 1st phone after being a Trafone user for 3-4 years. I switched because of the new $25/mo 750 minute plan. Your site says texts for this new plan are 1.6 or 1 cent per text depending on the type of phone used. THIS IS INCORRECT.
After deactivating my Tracfone and buying and $80 QWERTY Net10 phone then adding the $25 monthly plan I find that the texts are 1 minute each with is 3.3 cents per text. Actually a bit more than I was spending with the Tracfone. $80 for 450 minutes DMFL = 900 minutes/.3= 3000 texts or 2.7 cents per text. I was not a happy camper :(
My apologies. You're right, on the 30-day plans, text messages cost 1 unit each rather than 0.5 units. For the $25 750-minute card, that does work out to 3.3 cents per message which as you pointed out can be more than Tracfone's cost. I will correct the info above. Again, sorry about that.
