Pleased except for credit card problem

by Rodolfo
(McAllen, Texas)

I've used their prepaid phone service for nearly 4 years and have been quite pleased with the service until now. Since I started using their service I have bought/added prepaid minutes online as needed using my credit card (the only credit card I use and which is always kept current; I pay the balance on it in full monthly).

I have had no problems using this method until this month: I was rejected from using my one credit card (both by using the online method and in talking directly with a Net10 rep; I tried several times with the same result) which is current as usual. I am informed that my credit limit on the card is exceeded and I cannot use it for this transaction. Of course this is not true because the card is always up-to-date and I continue to us it regularly for other purchases.

That is my story. It has been quite frustrating for me lately. Otherwise, as first stated above, I have been quite satisfied with their service and would continue using their service pending overcoming the above problem.

That figures. Glad you got some minutes, at least.

Thanks for your reply to my post sb (admin). I temporarily resolved my prepaid minutes situation with Net10. I bought minutes at a local Walmart store. And guess what I used to purchase them?: my credit card. The same one that Net10 has rejected!

Rodolfo,

Thanks for your comments. It's certainly a mystery to me as well. The only reasons I can think of, don't apply to you:

Phone companies sometimes reject prepaid credit cards. Since you say you receive and pay off the bill each month, that's not the case for you.

Also sometimes, if you've had a credit card stored with them for a while, sometimes the expiration date doesn't get updated, but then they would have told you that.

I hope you get the situation resolved as it does sound like a hassle.

Regards.
