Net10 Prepares The LG Optimus Q and Optimus Net on their $50 Contract Free Unlimited Voice, Text and Data Plan


If contract free is the only way you like to roll, wireless provider Net10 is offering up a pair of LG Android devices for their $50 unlimited service. The LG Optimus Q and LG Optimus Net will be hitting Net10 in the coming days and if you’re interested, you can sign up to be notified as soon as these devices are released. Both devices feature 3.2-inch HVGA displays, 800MHz processors, 3MP cameras and running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

In case you’re not too familiar with Net10, they are a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) and a brand of TracFone offering both pay-as-you-go and prepaid monthly options. For only $50 you can get unlimited text, data and voice piggy backing on either AT&T or T-Mobile’s towers. Couple this with the MVNO’s first Android powered smartphones and you can save yourself a pretty penny if staying up to date with bleeding edge tech isn’t really “your thang.”

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Not bad, not bad at all for 50 bucks (:

  2. Give us a GSM version of the Triumph by Christmas on net10 and I’ll sign up in a heartbeat.

    1. Triumph, while it sounds great on paper, is actually a Huawei phone and is extremely poorly made (and buggy). =/

      Like most things, it was too good to be true..

  3. These Android Net10 phones actually run on Sprint, not AT&T or T-Mobile.

    1. Interesting-I knew Tracfone (and thus Net10) made use of AT&T, T-Mo and Verizon, but had no idea that they also had dealings with Sprint. Must be the only cellular provider that makes use of all the “big 4” networks. Why on earth would they choose to offer their best offerings to date on Sprint’s network? Or is Sprint the only service provider that would allow the combo of unlimited and Android? Any ideas here?

      1. My bet: it is the only one.

  4. nice phone…

  5. Net10 + StraightTalk have GSM and CDMA phones – different models run on different networks.

  6. are they going to work on getting this phone into mississippi anytime soon? I searched the website and it says that it is not usable here? I really hope they will get it working in other places!

  7. I have had this phone with straight talk for about 2 weeks and I love it.  Does everything it’s advertised to do and more.  Only problem i can find with it; you can not buy a soft of hardcover case for it.  If anyone knows differently let me know.
