NET10 Wireless Buyer’s Guide (January 2021)

Most wireless customers are familiar with the big-name brands in Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Relatively few buyers, though, are as well-versed when it comes to the topic of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO).It might surprise you to know that companies like Metro, Boost Mobile, and Cricket Wireless operate on the T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T networks, respectively. These network operators license the towers and coverage from the tier-one providers and offer their own phones, rate plans, and customer service.NET10 Wireless is one such MVNO worth closer inspection.AboutAs a company that operates almost virtually, Net10 doesn’t have any towers of its own. What’s more, it does not have any official retail stores, paper bills, activation fees, or overage charges.TIPS FOR BUYING A USED PHONEWHERE CAN I BUY AN UNLOCKED PHONE?BUYING AN UNLOCKED PHONE?
