NET 10 / lost minutes I paid for

I ordered 2 phones on-line, paid for them to be overnighted. We get the phones and there are no SIM cards. We call Net 10 amd are told that it would take 3-7 days for us to get the SIM cards. A waste of the 10.00 that I paid to have the phones overnighted. Next I get one phone activated and that took 2 days of constant phone calls. Then I went to activate the 2nd phone today (7-31-08), first because the phone number that I was transferring to the second phone had 1091.5 minutes I am told they can only transfer 600 of those minutes plus the 300 minutes I got with the new phone, and I am told that in order to get the remaining 491.5 minutes that was on the original phone I would have to call back in two weeks. Ok, fine I try to make a phone call from the new phone and can't so I call Net 10 back and am told that the phone is broke and they will have to send me a new phone. Another 3-7 days in the meantime my boyfriend now does not have a phone at all because the minutes were transferred to the new phone. We got these phones for emergencies and if he has an emergency now he can not get a hold of me. We get the new phone and call to have it activated and still they do not want to give me all of my minutes. They say their legal department has to verify the rest of the minutes but I received and email from Tracfone verifying the minutes, which i will paste at the end of this complaint, but their customer service still will not give me my minutes. Here is the email they sent me.
