How to Switch From One Net10 Phone to a New Net10 Phone

Change your Net10 phone without changing your number.

NET10 is a prepaid phone company that allows users to pay for their minutes ahead of time, at a rate of $0.10 per minutes and $0.05 per text message. The main appeal is that you don't have a contract and there's no risk of overage charges. But in today's fast-paced world of quickly evolving technology, newer, cooler phones are constantly arriving on the market. Luckily, it's pretty simple to change your phone and keep your old number.

Step 1

Purchase your new NET10 phone from an electronics store or other NET10 dealer.

Step 2

Visit Net10.com and hover your cursor over the "Activate/Reactivate" option at the top of the screen. Select "Transfer Number."

Step 3

Check the bubble that says "Transfer my service and phone number from one NET10 phone to another."

Step 4

Select the phone model of your new phone and click the "Submit" button.

Step 5

Choose the model of your own phone and click "Submit."

Step 6

Get your new phone's IMEI number by typing "*#06#" into its keypad. Type this 16-digit number into the space provided. Log in to your account when prompted.

Step 7

Get your new phone's IMEI number by typing "*#06#" into its keypad. Type this 16-digit number into the space provided on the NET10 Web page. Click "Submit" to continue.
