This deal is referenced in several other threads so I thought I'd post it here.

It seems you can swap almost anything (though it says android) I swapped a 10 year old 3g only Huawei Hydro. It's $20 with 1 month of unlimited service after referral code which are widely available. The phone is unlocked out of the box. They give you a free shipping lable for your swap so its painless. Deal NOT compatible with $100 Mastercard port-in.

TO date [03/02/2020] , not a single swapped phone has been rejected.
people have sent in windows, android, apple, flip phone, as well as a picture of a phone (im kidding on that last one of course).
they have send in phones with out imei, without battery, with crack screens etc.

keep reading on tips/tricks to protect yourself regardless of which phone u want to send in.

if you are not going to follow the guidelines set forth by Visible,
proceed with caution...and continue at your own risk..

lots of information and mis information on threads like these..

is great to get feedback here..but for your own unique question/concern..id suggest...best is to confirm ur questions via chat and there fore u have record of it.,,,

but first..read wiki..it will most likely have the answer to ur question..


i contacted chat & was told:
1. need to see imei ...that is a MUST..and must be INCOMPATIBLE with Visible service

2. on Visible website it says trade in Android phones only. however, i confirmed thru chat that even my Windows phone will work as long as the imei passes. so, if u want to do a non android phone that has an imei...confirm this first with chat , so u have record .... so..to summarize...can be Android or windows...as long as #1 is true

3. only need phone with imei visible one way or another. (for me imei was on back of phone and i didnt have charger, battery or even battery back)..so in summary all they want is the phone, no cords, no battery [in fact they say DO NOT SEND damaged battery]...keep in mind they need to verify the imei number so 1. if it is on back of phone , u r set 2. if it is setting then they must figure out how to get there.....u r not obligated to send them battery or charging cord..it is up to them to figure out how to check...

all this is assuming they check which users have questioned to begin with.

but if u have any questions...
get online..
.get to chat..
.get it in writing..
save chat...
cover your own arse


notes on deal:

1. moto e6 is unlocked

2. will accept most any phone that has a imei AND IS INCOMPATIBLE with Visible service

3. if u do swap, you will not get charged taxes (even if it says u will be charged taxes, included under "Total Due Today",..the "amount due today" will vary depending on where u live (usually between $8-$13.....it is for taxes......this is a glitch..so ignore). You pay $25 [no referral] or $20 [with referral] immediately upon creating an account (referred to as Total Due at Activation)...thats it ..there will no further charges on activation...only the $20 or $25. Note: Some have been charged $20 TWICE. Upon chat with Visible's Support, informed that the first $20 was for the 1st month's service and the second $20 was a credit to be applied to the second month of service.

many have asked if u are required to activate the sim..
no clear answer..

however...on Visible website:
quote begin
Within 14 days after order completion, customers must return their old Android™ device and activate their new phone, otherwise the customer will be charged the full price of the phone they ordered.
quote end


but.
some have activated the sim using another phone that is compatible with Visible

reason is they may want to gift the e6 or sell the e6...etc..

4. most people are choosing the moto e6 over other phone because it is the most versatile having bands for almost every usa carrier...the zte thats there and eligible to be swapped ..apperas to have better specs than the e6 and is unlocked as well...but that zte as well as the other ceaper phones are so limited that even if unlocked..they only have bands that will work with Visisble (in fact some have reporetd that the cheaper pones will not even wok with Verizon)

5. no contract, can cancel after paying for the 1st month

6. your are required to check eligibility of phone using imei number.You cannot enter the meid. You cannot enter the DEC number. You cannot enter the HEX number You cannot enter the MEID - last two digits. You must enter the IMEI. Some phones do NOT have a imei (mostly sprint older devices that are NOT LTE). in that case u need to find another phone. ...what i did was to buy for $5...on ebay...Nokia Lumia ...Seller information..tximran1 (1587 )

if u delete the first 2 number or the last 2 numbers from the meid . the result will be a random number which MAY therefore will pass...but it has nothing to do with your IMEI..it is not related... and might end up with your phone swap being rejected.

DATA POINT: I entered MEID of LG OE2 converted to DEC then dropped the last 2 digits into the IMEI checker, then sent in a completely different phone, iPhone 4S, which was accepted.
One: they don't match up the IMEI entered with what you send in.
Two: you don't need a phone with an IMEI. Afaict the only 'unacceptable' phones are those that are compatible with Visible.

7. sending phone back. there is limited creditable information on this, but most likely u will get a prepaid sticker with your mote delivery..just pack the old phone back in the box..slap the sticker and send it back..all with in 14 days...stay tuned for more credible information..
The original post is wrong about receiving a return label via email. Your return label will come in the box with the phone you ordered. No need to re-ask about this in the thread.


see here for picture of box that will be sent to u


UPS return label is in the box along with a white cardboard w/ plastic sleeve -- you put old phone in plastic sleeve and return it using same shipping box (remove old FedEx label and put on new UPS label)

_________________________

the zte thats there and eligible to be swapped ..appears to have better specs than the e6 ,is unlocked (as most/all Visible phones are unlocked) .but that zte (& the other cheaper phones [except for the very popular e6] ) are so limited that even if unlocked..they only have bands that will work with Visible (in fact some have reported that the cheaper phones will not even wok with Verizon)...efforts are being made to see if the blade will work on TMobile and others..no clear answer yet...

$129 (was $99 until this week) and $100 rebate plus 2 months required ($20 or $25 1st month but month 2 is $40 if you don't join a pay party);

or, free with swap and 1 month at $20 or $25 required.

Anyone knows how old the trade-in phone can be?

I can't get the MEID for my really really old phone (Android 2.2.2 Froyo!) to go through the checker.

They SAY they'll take any Android phone, but require an IMEI (GSM) number. I try to enter an MEID (CDMA) number from an old Kyocera Event phone (Android 4.0.4) and it won't take it. Anyone figure if I'm doing something wrong? I tried both the HEX and DEC versions the Kyocera phone displays (15 digit hex, 18 digit dec). Visible says the number should be 15-16 digits, so I'd assume the HEX would fit, but it doesn't work either. I understand the Visible network only uses GSM, but that shouldn't matter for a trade in that's not going to be used there.

Not a bad deal on a backup slash disposable phone.

But that says they are $61 msrp.

Is it unlocked? How well does android 9.0 run on 2 gigs ram and 16 storage. That seems like the biggest limitation. Maybe I got the wrong model?
Just try clicking on that $61 link. Thats the price for a used phone from Ebay. The other lower prices listed are also for used or 'renewed' phones.

Do you still get the $100 for signing up?? I was going to do BYOD but this seems better since I have plenty of old phones lying around.

I have one of my devices on Visible for the last month and a half and it's been fine.

The swap free deal is not compatible with the $100 MasterCard. Best way to contact visible is via Twitter. I got immediate responses to questions about trade in and master card promotion.

Right model. You only get 2gb ram and 16gb storage. It is unlocked. Both Verizon and Xfinity sims worked. Will check AT&T when I get a chance.

I can also confirm you can send in a cracked phone. Used the swap on the ZTE Blade A7 Prime and was approved with an old phone that still turned on.

I see that I will be charged $11 today (tax) and $20 at activation. If I never activate the phone, will I still get charged $20? I'd be buying this as a backup, so that's why I wouldn't need to activate it.

Well then, I'll stick to BYOD since I already have compatible devices. $100 is better than this phone. Thank you!

Where are you seeing that?

Their website says that the first month's plan is charged when the phone ships.

Takes just a few minutes to sign up. Your first month of unlimited data, messages, and minutes will cost just $25, billed when your new phone ships. And with next-day shipping, you'll get your free phone right away.

I swapped my old Android Nexus 5X which no longer gets android updates since last year for the HTC Blade A7 under this promo.

As long as the device boots up, they will take it.

Visible (Verizon network) is very slow in my area an deprioritized during peak use hours making it almost unusable.

I also tried USMobile.com (using Verizon sim) and did side to side speed tests and while Visible was getting 0.3 Mbps download the other verizon line from USM was getting 8Mbps. Both of them had 1 to bars of service.

YMMV. I ended up with AT&T since my area has 20Mbps speeds even with 1-2 bar coverage from major carriers. Still better than T-mobile in my area.

There are several unanswered questions for non virtual CC users:
1. my old but working flip phone IMEI was accepted using the swap URL, there is no doubt that it's not a android phone. Am I going to get charged full price of e6 after?
2. $20/1st mo and $40/2nd mo even if I don't activate the service?
3. Has anyone tried to block the payment so the end result is a $20 phone that is unlocked by turning in an old phone?

Yes you need to activate. That is part of the swap instructions.
