How do I reactivate my Net 10 phone?

I fly to Orlando on Wednesday and want to use my Net10 phone the next day to call home (UK) but I need to reactivate it. How do I do this? It took me six days to be able to make international calls last year !

I would suggest to just get a new phone when you're there again. The minimum topup is $30, and for that you can just get a new phone anyway with $30 of credit. We've always managed to make international calls with an hour or so of activating the phone

Like the PP said ,you would be better buying a new phone.
If you decide to reactivate it, they will give you a new number for the phone, you do not keep the old number.

Thanks both of you, I have realised now it will be less hassle to get a new phone. It seems like a waste though, doesn't it? Looks like we will be headed to Walmart for new phones on Wednesday night or Thursday morning!

I know, it is a waste, but it just is the easiest option.
I'm considering donating my 2 previous net10 phones, just haven't got round to it.

I gave mine to a woman at the RPR who we have got to know quite well over the years, they will do her grandkids.
