When you go to the Net10 website, their advertising slogan says “No Bill’s, No Contracts, No EVIL”. Here is why I think they are absolute hypocrites in regards to the No EVIL slogan...
I purchased a basic Net10 phone so I could keep my old phone number since I recently got a free cell phone through my employer and I did not want to keep paying on my Verizon phone that was costing me somewhere north of $90 per month. I wanted to keep/port my old number to Net10 so my friends and family could still contact me on my old number that I have had for over 6 years. So over 10 days ago I purchased my new Net10 phone and went through their online activation process and followed the steps to transfer my phone number. Immediately after going through this online “activation” my Verizon phone stopped working and my new Net10 phone would begin ringing whenever someone called the old number but they could not leave a message because the Net10 phone was not active? So I waited about 3 days and called Net10 customer service and received completely incompetent service and no one would help me or give me a straight answer. Going to their website for a status did not give me any information and my old phone is still unusable for the last 10 days. Meanwhile I have tried every trick in the book to get some movement on this issue including talking to 2 levels of supervisors who have been completely unwilling to do anything outside of reading their prepared script to deal with irate customers, In all actuality these people do not care since they are being paid low wages and are based out of a Philippians call center. I have never been so frustrated in my life and I am so tired of dealing with these people but I have gotten no direction on what to do other than wait. As I write this I have been waiting on hold with Net10 customer service for over 90 minutes…..
So much for “No Evil”. They may be a good service once you get activated, but they are not equipped to deal with customer problems. If you want to port your old phone number to NET10 I would reconsider...Trust me on this, they suck!
