I'm guessing this is similar to the Z4 deal for $20. I'm just going to link to it here for people's questions about whether you unlock it, port it etc...

Phone is unlocked from factory so no worries there.

I think the G7 Play was $19.99 just last week. I picked up the G7 Power last week for $49.99 but it's now $79.99. If ya don't mind the hard credit pull these Bestbuy deals have been pretty sweet for factory unlocked Motos that work on all US carriers. Canceling a new Verizon line within 3 days is super easy and costs nothing.

the $40 activation fee on a $30 phone really kills this deal.

Also, there is a "smartphone access fee $20" for some plan from Verizon...plus fake taxes and fees.

Ya never have to pay for service or fees if ya cancel within 3 days. They don't even ask for a credit card number. I paid about $50.00 cash in the store last week for my G7 Power and canceled the Verizon line 2 days later. It's ridiculously easy if ya don't mind the hard credit pull.

I'm guessing that some people think you pay for the service and fees up front when you pickup the phone which is not true. Verizon normally sends you a bill but canceling within the first three days prevents this. I think the G7 and G7 Power are well worth it but I'd never do this deal for the G7 Play.

$30 is pretty much the value of this phone but jumping through hoops to cancel and the hard credit pull kills it. A deposit or a credit card on file would be a better option.

5 FICO points deduction?
10 ?

No one knows.
So unless you are on some border that affects your credit tiering & rate (buying a house).
Or you are expecting several credit pulls in short term, this hard pull doesn't amount top a hill of beans.

They have the $29 phone with 'activate now" with sprint from Best Buy..
I wonder if i cancel activation & service with sprint quickly and keep the slick-deal phone/

Found this from google search:
Can I cancel my new Sprint contract?
You'll be happy to know that you can cancel a new contract, but you have to act quickly — specifically you need to terminate the contract within 14 days of activation. This is common for all the major wireless carriers — Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile — plus some of the tier two providers as well.May 6, 2015
