If you have 120 minutes and 3 days of PAYG service when you add a Monthly Unlimited card you will erase your PAYG balance and get 30 days of Unlimited service.
If you have 10 days left on a monthly plan and you add a $30 300 minute/60 day PAYG card you will erase the 10 days and get 300 minutes and 60 days.

Streaming Audio and Video
The streaming part of Net10 data is clipped. You cannot get streaming audio like a radio station or Pandora on your phone. You can surf the web as much as you want but the streaming sites will not work.
Mininmum Monthly Charges
The Monthly plans will cost you at least $25 per month and the PAYG plans will cost you at least $15 per month. Net10 Unlimited Rollover.
Having both PAYG plans and Monthly plans can be handy if you know in advance when you will have months with very low usage. You can switch from a monthly plan to PAYG and only spend $15 per month for a couple of months and then switch back to a monthly plan when you use up almost all of your PAYG minutes.
Keeping your Net10 Phone Number
Normally if you renew/reactivate your phone within 30 days of deactivation you will get the same phone number. If your phone number is very important to you be sure your phone never runs out of service time and minutes.
What is a Month to Net10?
for simplicity I have called thirty days a month. Actually all of the Net10 plans work in 30 day increments. With the Monthly plans they last 30 days even in February which usually only has 28 days.
Running out of Minutes or Time
If you let your service lapse by running out of either minutes or time you might lose your phone number.
There is no reactivation fee if you let your service lapse. The only problem if you let service lapse is you might lose your phone number.
