It's always a nice thing when a prepaid wireless company (or any wireless company for that matter) releases a new phone, like Net10 with its new handset, the Samsung R355c. There's always the chance that the phone is going to bring something new to the table. Or, the phone might just be a very solid phone that does simple things very well.
All these things seem to be the case with Net10's new prepaid phone, the Samsung R355c. The phone is built in what cell phone industry people call "slab style." In other words, it is shaped like a BlackBerry and fits in the palm in the same manner, and like a BlackBerry, the Samsung R355c has a screen that takes up the top half of the phone and a full qwerty keypad that takes up the bottom half.
Samsung seems to know how to make solid phones very well, which is why a lot of prepaid companies tend to partner with the company on new ventures. Samsung R355c for Net10 is available on the website for $ 99, and it comes with 300 minutes of talk time to start, which is a good thing, since you will not have to drop more cash for talk time right away.
Net10 is known for its low prices, affordable phones, and its frequent offers. One offer that is actually going on right now and should be going on for a while because it looks like people really like it, is the free 300 minutes of talk time that come with a phone purchase.
In other words, if you buy a Net10 phone you start out with 300 minutes of talk time, which becomes a $ 30 savings, since each Net10 minute costs ten cents. By the way, text messages cost 5 cents and I believe 5 cents to receive as well. The minutes can be used over a period of 60 days, so you could conceivably only pay $ 15 per month for the first two months of your cell phone bill if you do not use more than 300 minutes. It is very easy to buy minutes and you have a clear indication of your available talk time on your phone screen.
Samsung R355c for Net10 is a solid cell phone and one of the top current prepaid models available. Let's be honest, most prepaid phones are pretty weak. It's a good thing that we are seeing some new high quality phones added to the lineups most prepaid phone companies.
