If you're planning to switch to T-Mobile, would this be a good thing to try before switching and letting T-Mobile cover the ETF?

Jaxidian, my thoughts exactly. Looks like it should work.

I did this couple months ago and got a MotoX for $150-$200(gc)-$50(rebate). the gift card took two months to arrive and I was not an xfinity customer, not sure if the requirements have changed this time

There were mixed results from the last time they did this promotion.

Some got the $200 gift cards while others got none or just $100.

So if you like to gamble then this deal is for you.

I currently have not received my gift card and its been over 2 months. Reps are giving me the run around.

I did exactly this the last time Verizon did this deal. A few things you might want to be aware of:

I waited 14 days after my contract started (past the return period) then suspended the line.

After I received my gift card (it took around 8 weeks) I went to t-mobile, traded in a cheap phone I had laying around, signed up for their $50 a month plan and bought their cheapest phone, the 768, (you have to purchase a phone from them for the ETF deal).

The final bill from Verizon was about $390 (350 ETF + taxes/fees) and t-mobile only pays the ETF, and the 768+taxes ended up around $90, so just be aware the payoff isn't as good as it seems, although it's still worth it in the end.

Is it really worth it? I am in search of new phone. Don't want to switch to T-Mobile as I think that is still overpriced even though they pay ETF.

That's a lot of work for $70. No thanks!

Thanks for this info, though! I appreciate you putting your experience to my idea - not as good as I thought it might be.

Good info. Thanks.

So in the end, for you, it was $390-$350(TMO paid)+$90(You paid for 768)=$130 on the devices and you got $200 gift card? Did you factor in the $35 activation fee that verizon charged you? In a nutshell, its about $35 that you made? Did you get to keep the phone or had to return it?

Does this have a special contract that says you cannot remove the phone in the first 4 months without penalty?

Can I get the phone on one line and then immediately use it on a different line? aka transfer upgrade.

Ditto. I ordered on 12/2 and am still awaiting my gift card.

The activation fee was waived for me, I'm not sure why though, no activation fee might have been part of the deal last time.

I sold the t-mobile phone on Amazon for around $40, so in the end I made about $100. If you do this and want to resell the t-mobile phone, I'd get the Alcatel Onetouch Evolve, it's around $80 but the resale value is higher. People have been flooding the market with 768's because of the ETF deal.

If I would have waited a week I could have traded in an old blackberry for $200 credit when that was going on, which would have been a lot better, not that I'm complaining Smilie

Yeah, I wasn't originally go to do the t-mobile part, but I had an old phone lying around and figured what the hell, free money for a little leg work.

This.

I am looking to purchase the note 3 but am not about to lose my unlimited data in the process.

Has anyone successfully done this deal and swapped out the SIM cards?

You net $150 with the G2 on-contract. I can't decide if I should wait for the G3. Decisions....
