If you buy a smartphone at Bestbuy.com (not sure if also available in-store but it's worth a shot) you can also get a free 6 month unlimited cloud storage membership from pogoplug ($14.99 value):

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/pogop...Id=1696087

Just add both the phone and the pogoplug activation card to your cart and the pogoplug card will automatically be free.

The Boost Mobile version of this phone is at Radioshack for $29.99. What makes the Boost version better is that you can unlock the bootloader and can activate on with R+ If you can have Best Buy PM this and get your $25, this would be ultra-slick! I have attached the price from a local Radioshack.

here is the thread for the $5 boost M moto g...not easy...but possible....i got mine for $5 and using on RP free plan

I took my phone out of airplane mode (using for perking) and hit the auto activate button. Followed voice prompts including option to pay later. Picked my own PIN and was assigned a phone number based on my zip code I entered. Used all real info etc. This is Verizon... I'm more scared of my info being stolen by a waitress than Verizon.

I then went to the Verizon website, created an account, and added $5. I made an outbound call to finalize the activation. Have to select English during the test call. Then I hung up before it went to my other phones voice mail. I called back my newly activated moto g and it rang on the inbound call. Fully working! Now, to wait 6 months.

Calls are billed at 25¢ for voice minutes and 20¢ for texts. Cool but expensive pay as you go.

Back to airplane mode... Not planning to use any of the $5.00 balance if I can help it.

Hope this helps someone else.

PS, I never had to talk to an employee.

2 days later, I checked my Verizon account and found a free 1GB of days with unlimited talk and text added to my account while keeping the $5 balance I had too.
I did nothing and spoke to no one so this should be for everyone.

"Unactivataed" device is $20 while activated is $40.

That being said, this is a much better deal than earlier this month with $25, especially if you're getting the $25 BB Reward back (assuming you didn't do it yet with another smartphone since it's 1 per BB account).

But these Verizon Prepaid Moto G are virtually worthless to use as a phone. Can't do ringplus and certainly can't do VZW postpaid nor pageplus nor any MVNO for at least 6-12 months after activating (which cost $$) since it has no sim card slot and 3G only.

If only Boost Mobile Moto G was on sale....

I know but I checked with all my local radioshack (2 in my area) and they're all sold/cleaned out.....

I tried PM with BB on Boost Moto G but BB denied me over the phone and BB don't have them in-store stock...

Boost Moto G can work with Ringplus and among cheap phones, Moto G is way to go due to 720p screen. All these other cheap phones that's on sale and shown on SD are all terrible resolution screen of 540p or worse.

That's sucks. They have a ton of them by me. Maybe the Virgin Lumia 635 works for you. Also $30

Lumia 635 was a good possible option for Ringplus except it's a windows phone and windows phone don't have Google Voice/Hangout apps which didn't work with me. Also the $30 deal at BB ended last week.... unless you mean radioshack is $30. It's $70-100 in BB now.
