I found that buying online is the best way to go. I paid $20.00 for a motorolla phone and it came with 300 minutes of airtime. So, its like I got the phone free. I bought this phone for my daughter. I signed up on a thing with them online also, that they automatically add 150 minutes every month to that phone for $15.00. All unused minutes rollover. Text only charges 1/2 a minute off your airtime. Net 10 is alot better deal than Tracphone.
