So the "activate today" price is the full price plus the activation fee? Looking for a relatively inexpensive phone for my kids.

Good morning, RadYOacTiVe Smilie I believe you've got that right if I am reading it correctly, but just in case: The "activate today" price is the full price owed for the phone at checkout (+ tax) if you decide not to go the monthly payment route. Then add the $30 activation or upgrade fee to that $167.99 price (can be looked at as $197.99 total, not counting tax).

Some long-standing Verizon customers have had luck contacting customer service by phone to politely see if it may be possible to have their activation fee waived (credited back) once the bill arrives, but success is never a guarantee. Hope this helps!

Revone, thank you for the reply, I just wanted to make sure I was reading it that way. Does that mean it's for a new line of service? I just want to take the Sim from an old phone and drop it in.

My pleasure Smilie Glad to help. If your child's current line is eligible for an upgrade, you can choose this option at checkout to have their number activated on the Motorola phone once it arrives and you set it up (it will have a new SIM card pre-installed in the device already). Verizon will charge a $30 "Upgrade" fee (instead of charging it as a $30 "Activation" fee) in that instance.

Revone, good point, they are eligible for an upgrade. Thanks again!

How does this phone compare to a Galaxy S6? Looking for a replacement as my battery life is terrible and the phone has slowed down over the years.

Might wait for the S10 to come out to trigger sales on S9 and the like,,

I wouldn't get this phone unless you are upgrading from a shitty phone. I came from a Nexus 6p due to batt issues and this Moto phone is kinda garbage.

The screen is bad, looks bad and isn't very responsive. I have no screen protector cause I don't really mind small scratches but still garbage on the touch sensitivity. Tried to mess with Dev options to make it less bad. I got the z2 force version on the 100$ att deal a few weeks back and kinda regret it at that price point, let alone for 160$.

Only buy this if you coming from a bad phone or really need a durable phone, it is very durable which is nice

As far as a reasonable priced phone for a kid take a look at the Moto X4. There have been different bdeals on them but sub $200 is easily found. Upgraded me and the kids to it at Christmas. Great phone for sub $200 and on Android pie already.

I got the AT&T Z2 Force for $100 2 months ago. Was able to unlock it within a week after inserting it with Freedompop sim card (AT&T).

When you use Freedompop you're using the ATT network. The name ATT even shows up on the device. You're using their data but calls aren't allowed. Perhaps he/she used it long enough so that the systems figured it was activated on the ATT network and it satisfied the time requirement to be unlocked.

Correct, it took me a week after I put in the FreedomPop AT&T sim card and put a request through the AT&T Portal to get it unlocked. Here's my post back then:
