Please do not try to sell your $50 Simple Mobile Prepaid card here.
It violates "No Selling/No Self Promotion" rules
, or you will get banned.
you may trade for up to $5 GC.....

This is unlocked version, the simple mobile refill card + sim is just filler for lowering the
total price. It's unlocked phone.

So beware BB hot deals which sometimes no one else matches because you couldn't scam them?

OK. I don't understand, this is $9 cheaper in total than Front page deal yesterday and even you don't need that refill, you can throw it or just activate it for 1 month to take advantage of some phone number port deal, why I got thumb down...

Don't do any Bestbuy packaged phone deal. I got burnt big time. You won't be able the return sim kit or the phone card.
Again, you will be burnt.

Especially the refurbish phones or devices!! I am reporting my experience to BBB. And hopefully eventually someone will put a class action lawsuits to the bestbuy. Their practices is really questionable!
Sell the refill? Already found a buyer from the previous BB deal.

B&H's listing for this specific model (PAA90004US) says it's incompatible with Sprint/Verizon: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pr...phone.html

To me,. it's only a problem if I want to return the whole bundle/package, & they refuse to return the unopened/unused card & SIM. In those cases, a manager may be able to override (their decision, overriding store policy though).

Otherwise, returning part of a bundle discount invalidates/undoes the bundle discount.
In this case, bundle gets -$75 discount with +$51 extra items; which covers the whole cost of the extra items, & yields net discount on the phone of -$24. So the bundle discount covers the cost of the extra bundle items. Returning would lose the -$24 discount on the phone, reverting back to the noon- bundle price, which would have to be paid. Returning the bundle items would be a loss.
So this bundle discount I prefer & recommend, because the extra items don't cost extra, & provide a discount on something I do want.

The policy on no returns of unopened or unused prepaid cards & SIMs, is the store's preference. I would prefer they allow returns under those conditions, or if defective.

Yes, GSM & LTE only.
Yes, most of the other current new Moto smartphone models @ Best Buy have "universal" unlocked editions, supporting GSM & CDMA & LTE (& at least the 4 major USA cellular networks: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint.).
