Motorola W408g from Net10

Seriously, that’s the best shot I could find of a phone apparently new to Net10. It’s the Motorola W408g, and we know that for sure. Everything else, though, remains a mystery. Howard Forums maven The Sweeper found it in the activation section of Net10’s website, but it isn’t available to buy. It’s not even listed on Motorola’s website. I’m sure it’s nothing special, but is rather just another clamshell option for Net10. I suppose you could look out for it at retailers where Net10 is sold. ]]>

    What an awesome phone this is. Not only is it fantastic but net10 service is great too and they offer the cheapest rates for calls and texts

    The thing about net10 is that it’s cheap. The phones aren’t special, nor do they turn heads, but they are cheap. I mean, you can get a phone for $30 and maintain it by only paying $15 a month. There is no other provider that can offer that. Not at this time at least. The service is solid as well.

    Let’s not forget the Net10 convenience factor. You can buy additional minutes right from your phone. You even get a reminder when new airtime needs to be added. How easy is that!

    Net 10 is a great saver and the service is great. For $30 I got a phone with everything that I needed, free minutes and plus I am not locked into any monthly contract I can just pay as I go

    Will check this phone out when it becomes available. I’ve loved Net10 and usually have a similar Motorola clamshell, but I’m always looking for an upgrade 🙂

    I Just got Net 10 Motorola w408g cell phone a few days ago this is my very first cell phone ever and I have to say it’s pretty cool it’s not an expensive cell phone it’s cheap 25 dollars a month or 50 and the features on the phone is awesome, who ever wants a cell phone I suggest a Net10 cell phone plus no annual flat fee rates or 200 dollars for a deposit Great phone can’t beat the price I’m one happy customer.

    I hear so many people gripe about the lack of phone choice with prepaid. Frankly, I find the variety at the price you pay, more than adequate. Got one of these for my son, with a $25 plan, which is ridiculously cheap at 3c/minute, Got Net10’s unlimited plan and the T401 for myself and my mom’s got Tracfone’s SVC, perfect for her needs. That’s 3 totally different sets of needs met and at the lowest prices. And just as a cherry on top, on good networks, so coverage is reliable too.

    I have a Motorola w408g cell with Net10 service. Net10 service is just fine. The phone is not. If I hadn’t activated it with 6 months of phone service, I would have returned it. The battery compartment is constantly falling off and the battery falling out. I left for a trip an hour away from home, and when I picked up my cell from the desk, I didn’t realize the battery and back were left behind. Could have been a big problem if I’d had trouble on the freeway because I can’t walk without crutches. I’ve also had it fall apart when trying to answer a call. The phone has an awkward shape. It’s a flip phone and the two halfs are not even, they’re slanted at the opening end. Makes it hard to hold on to, and may have something to do with the case falling apart all the time. As soon as my time is up I’m switching to my LG 600G which IS a very nice phone. The only big difference between the two is Moto is a speaker phone which comes in handy sometimes, and it can have a wired headset attached. I had to pay 39.99 for the Moto but I’ll give it away to someone who can’t aford one. The LG only cost 24.99.

    This is a great phone and Net10 is a wonderful service… unless you expect to be able to utilize a micro-sd card for srotage expansion (which net10 has disabled) or connect your phone to your computer for teathering or simple data transfer like copying off photos (which net10 has disabled) or expecting the advertised features to be available, or expecting a customer service rep to have ANY clue about the products they are supposed to be supporting, or expecting it to be easy NOT to waste almost 10 minutes of airtime by accidentally pressing the ‘browser’ button which tries to connect you to the internet even though that is not part of the prepaid plan… I could go on and on. VERY disappointed with NET10.

    Stop crying I love net10. I have a kid in school and he loves it too. The phones r cheap,the touch screens lock after a lot of use but what do you want for $30 just consider it disposable. As far as customer service who has that any more? You can handle most problems on line I love that I hate to be on hold. Thanks net10.
