As you all remember, I’m super excited to be a part of the Net10 Wireless Phones Test Drive Program! As part of this program I recently received the Net10 Wireless LG Optimus Net Phone to review. This phone is a prepaid phone on the service in case you didn’t read my previous post to know what Net10 is all about!
I was very excited to try it as I haven’t really used a prepaid phone much and I have always had paid contract services. I couldn’t wait to get it activated and the phone set up so we could play with all the cool features and apps.
Setting it up was super easy as you can do it online through the Net10 Wireless Website! It came with very easy to follow instructions on how to get the phone set up, which I was thankful for! I’m not used to having to load my phone with minutes. It came with everything I needed to get the phone activated and I love that all the instructions were in English and in Spanish!
After I activated it online and verified my number on the site, my account was set up and my phone was ready to use with in about 5 minutes total time. That’s how fast and easy it was to set up! I powered it up and started to download all my favorite apps and set up all my email accounts and social media accounts.
This amazing phone features all of the following!
- Android 2.3 operating system Helps you remain productive on the go.
- 3G speed Offers quick and easy connection speeds.
- Wi-Fi connectivity For Internet capability on the go (additional fees may apply).

The Android 2.3 operating system runs perfectly on this phone and was very easy to navigate and learn. If you’re not familiar with Android devices, don’t worry it’s very easy to learn! I was super excited to find that all of my favorite apps were very easy to find in the Android store and Google Play store. You can see some of them in the picture below.
I had to have my twitter and Pinterest apps of course! There are thousands of apps that you can choose from, so the sky is the limit on choosing fun games, social media apps, and photo apps! And don’t worry about filling up your phones hard drive with apps, the LG Optimus Net comes with a 4 GB micro SD card and it can fit up to a 32 GB micro SD card so you can store files and apps onto it so it doesn’t take up space on your phone. It also makes it easier to transfer your info onto another phone should you need to! The actual phone service runs on a 3G that was very fast and happy to report that it didn’t drop any calls. It also connects via wifi as well so you can download your apps very quickly.
The screen is a little over 3 inches and is a vivid color touch screen! It makes the apps and menu look very appealing to the eye and it also allows you watch videos and look as your photos in a very clean and crisp way. Speaking of photos, it comes with a 3.2 mega-pixel camera that does zoom and has many options that you can set to make sure you’re taking the best photos. Of course you’ll want to upload all those photo’s via instagram of course, which is available for Androids. It also has a great battery on it. You can play with apps and use the phone for phone calls for hours with out it dying. I was shocked by how long the battery lasted with all the usage it was getting.
