As you can see it clearly states Download abilities. what they don't tell you is it is STRICTLY from net10. You cannot download from any other "third" party locations.
Two Downloading options: 1) using the browser on your phone to access Net10 [keep in mind you cannot "browse" anything] Time: 5-8 minutes @ $1.00 a minute. Then, $2.50 to buy. Then an additional 1-5 minutes for download time @ $1.00 a minute.
OPTION 1 TOTAL COST: $8.50 TO $15.50
2) Go to Net10.com, enter serial # and Phone # and browse ringtones from there. Issue... The website doesn't allow access. I get a Net10 generated webpage that states..."Sorry, there seems to be a problem.
We are unable to process your request at this time. Contact Customer Care department @ 1-877 XXXXXXXX". Contact C. C. they said first, that it was my computer. Then they said it was my phone - used master reset, entered some codes, wait 24 hours. Called again. They re-registered my phone with the website and asked me to try it. Same message. Then used master reset again... told to wait 24-48 hours for it to be picked up by their systems. Still no luck. Sent complaint via email. Received this response.

Exactly my point. I don't understand how screwing with my phone... yet again will resolve the issue "online." I already had one of the operators tell me it was my "Computer". We can only buy ringtones for his phone via your website that is not providing us with any type of access. And any other "third party" downloads are blocked. NO Evil, my #. Obviously, this is something on YOUR end that needs to be resolved, repaired or reprogrammed. I certainly don't believe entering a few #'s into my phone and doing the master reset will resolve the issue... why... because it's already been done 3 times. YOUR website isn't allowing access for some reason or another... and the phone settings has nothing to do with your website. Your website doesn't automatically connect to the phone after entering the serial # and phone. So screwing with the phone has nothing to do with it. Clearly false advertising given there is NOTHING NOTING "DOWNLOADS ONLY THROUGH NET10"
