It's similar to doing it with Twitter.

Get QWERTY with Net10's Samsung R451C

If you're a mega-texter, you might be in danger of developing muscular thumbs!

Help is on the way: The new Net10 Samsung R451C.

Its QWERTY keyboard is like a miniature computer keyboard. The screen goes into horizontal mode, which makes it super-convenient. And it includes a traditional numeric touch pad, so if you just want to talk on the phone... no problem!

To find out if the new Net10 Samsung R451C is available in your area, click here.

PS. If it isn't, consider the Samsung T401G instead.

Texting Tweets

Whether you have the new Samsung T401G QWERTY phone or the sleek and elegant LG300G, you can Tweet!

Since a Tweet consists of a maximum of 140 characters, as long as your phone allows six-character short texts, you can Tweet. That makes your Net10 phone the perfect Tweeting phone.

All that's required is a little preparation. Twitter's website has complete and easy-to-follow instructions, but here's how to get started.

First, sign into your Twitter account. From your home page, go to Settings, then Devices (below).

Or you can access this page from HELP, which is available on every Twitter page.

Just follow the instructions to add your phone (so Twitter recognizes it and doesn't post random Tweets to your account.)

You can either set it up directly from your phone...

... or from the Web.

There are also official Twitter text commands so you can do a variety of things -- all by sending short text messages from your Net10 phone.

And if you get confused, just refer to the Twitter Phone FAQ.

Lots of other informative posts there, too!

Moto EM326 goodies!

If you go to the Net10 website and order a cool Motorola EM326 slider phone, you'll get a FREE USB cable and 2GB memory card (a $19.99 value)!

Hurry. Supplies are (as they say) limited.

Of course, the phone also includes 300 minutes of airtime upon activation, too. Deal!

Samsung T401g

It's what many of us have been asking for: a cool phone with a good camera, Bluetooth, MP3 player and a QWERTY keyboard. The new Net10 Samsung T401g is all that and more.

It's been getting out to retail stores over the last week or so and should be available online soon, too.

The venerable Pbushx2 blog has done a preliminary but thorough review of the new phone. Here's part one, part two and part three.

It's pretty fascinating stuff. As usual, the blog does a great job in clearly and simply covering everything you'd like to know and more. Much more than everything, in fact. LOL! But that's a good thing. Kudos!

True Story!

A friend of mine asked to borrow my Net10 phone. He's a freelance journalist and needs to interview someone in Canada.

He already has a cell phone from a company that shall remain nameless (but their initials are "ATT".) He's had it forever, even though he knows that Net10, TracFone or Straight Talk costs less. After this, though, I think he's REALLY convinced. Here's why...

Before making his Canadian call, he decided to see how much it would cost from HIS phone... rather than waiting for the bill. So he called 611 and asked the nice lady at the other end how much they charge to call Canada.

With an "International Plan," it's $2.49 a minute. Without the plan, $5.99 a minute. He thanked her politely and then called me to borrow my Net10 phone.

How much is it to call Canada on my Net10 phone?

Fifteen cents a minute.

Case closed!

Call the World

One of the truly great things about Net10 is International Long Distance

Domestic calls are 10c a minute, of course. That's a terrific deal. But international calls are just 15c a minute, which is CRAZY.

For more information about international calling on Net10 and a list of over 100 destinations you can call at this great rate, click here.

But wait: There's more!

With Net10's amazing International Neighbors Service, your family and friends in Mexico and Canada can call directly to your Net10 phone without incurring any international long distance charges. You'll get a FREE local number in Mexico or Canada for them to call, linked directly to your Net10 phone.

The Venture Brothers-Net10 Connection

It's no secret that many commercial artists move on to features films, TV series and the like.

It's also not unknown for them to move back and forth between various fields. Ridley Scott, director of Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma and Louise, Gladiator and many others, also directed the commercial that's considered by many to be the best ever, Apple's 1984.

Steven Soderberg, Spike Jonze, Spike Lee, McG and scores of other writers, directors, artists, actors and technicians have worked on commercials, theatrical and TV features, music videos and other media.

Many comic artists, including greats like Jack Kirby and Alex Toth, have done character designs, story boards and other commercial animation work.

Fans of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming love its edgy, anarchic and culturally self-referential animated features like Space Ghost, Harvey Birdman and most recently, TheVenture Brothers , a Jonny Quest pastiche (at the very least).

Artist Matthew I. Jenkins drew covers and interior art for DC Comics and worked on animation projects for HBO, David Letterman and Cartoon Network's Brak Show. He's also done character designs and more for The Venture Brothers.

In addition, he designed characters for Net1o's awesome No Evil ads, posted here, here, here here and here, along with a Scooby Doo-ish one-shot here.

Here are links to some of his terrific designs from his own site, which is well worth digging into.

5¢ Texts

AT&T offers an add-on to its contract plans; $20 extra a month for "unlimited" texts.

Whoop-dee doo!

Considering what they already charge for calls, overage fees and everything else, they ought to give all their contract customers a free box of doughnuts every month!


But we're serious that the cost of texting is crazy. Bonkers!

Net10 only charges 5¢ per text! That's right; a nickel.

Why would you want to pay more?

I could tell you how great Net10 is and how much money you will save etc.

But here's an actual satisfied customer ... VERY satisfied, in fact... whose story has a bit more credibility and resonance.

She signed up for Net10 as a temporary thing three years ago... and never left!

Promo Code

I like deals. Don't you? Any opportunity to get something for nothing makes for a good day.

Saving a few bucks on something you're buying is great, but getting something extra for free is even better.

Here's a promo code I used to get a free accessory kit with my Net10 phone: 88125.

When you order your phone online just enter the code when prompted.

Free Phone?

Pretty much.

For a mere 30 bucks, you can get a nice Net10 LG300 phone with a case, hands-free headset and car charger.

When you activate the phone, you immediately get 300 minutes. At 10¢ a minute, it means the phone is free. That's a pretty decent deal!

It's available at Walmart.
