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...

per chat with visible team, you can activate the sim within 60 days. if beyond 60 days we can get a new sim for free by chatting again and use the month of service purchased earlier.

There shouldn't be any charge at all. If there is a charge, remove the item in cart and re-add the item again and the charge should be disappeared.

I had a charge yesterday and I didn't ordered. Today I went in my cart and the charge has disappeared. I only got an email from them that $20 is charging to my card for the first month service.

So after 30 min or so of back and forth messages, where he asked me no less than 3 times to go to the about phone status page and even needed a screenshot confirmation because he apparently didn't believe me, he finally comes back as says MEID only phones are not accepted after all. Hard to believe I'm the first he's ever run into, but what'cha goin do. Stick Out Tongue
Quote from desi_babu_2010 :
same issue.
kyocera rise on sprint.

bought a w 10 SM for $5 from seller Seller information. tximran1 (1586 )

confirmed via chat (have transcript) a W 10 phone is ok as long as imei is visible (no P I)
Just curious so I checked. That seller has a couple Windows 8 Nokia phones for $6.99, but no $5 Win10 phone I could see. That what you're referring to? "W 10 SM" wasn't exactly clear (W 10 = Windows 10? SM = ??? SiM?)

Quote from ps200901 :
Could you figure it out? I tried it also but it wouldn' take my old sprint based phones MEID too, I doubt they come with IMEI cause it is GSM technology maybe?
No. If they don't take CDMA only phones, you'd think they'd have the forethought to say so before people keep trying and failing.

Quote from JaTaN :
You can try using a converter to see if that works: https://www.imei.info/meid

Website shows an "8" hexadecimal check digit (CD) all the way on the right when I enter my MEID -- if you want to take the risk then you can add the check digit that the website shows to your MEID and trade it in
Doesn't work. The lookup tool can't find an IMEI if your phone doesn't have one. Trying to use the MEID itself is pointless. Their form is only for IMEIs, which is different from an MEID. Even if they're used for a similar purpose. MEIDs are too long at 18 digits. Any more than 17 digits and the "Next" button on their form is grayed out and can't be used, so adding the extra check digit doesn't help. Also can't be used with MEID HEX as entering any letters also won't let you continue.

$10 after cashback while trading in my almost useless LG Volt is a good deal, even if the Moto ain't the best phone in the world.

I switched over a few days ago. Porting in wasn't perfect. Took a few chats and 24hrs. After I tested everything out and I'm getting no data. Speedtest spikes high for a half second then dies to 0. I cant even load up google. Had to contact CS again, went though the steps and now escalated again.. not having the best of luck

I'm a little confused. I seemed to have gotten charged $20 right away. Then, it says it will charge $20 when I activate the phone. I thought it was $20 total up front.

Also, I want to know if I can just not activate the phone and cancel the service and keep the phone (sending in the swap phone first, of course).

Thanks!

If you are doing the free swap and want only the 1st month, then...according to their FAQ below. Please confirm if only $20 is being charged for 1st month. I wonder if they charge the other $20 after activation or after they ship the E6???

https://www.visible.com/referral/

"Q: Can I participate in the Swap program and get a Referral credit?
A: Yes. For new members participating in the Swap program, you'll need to pay the full $40 for your first month of service, but your $20 referral credit will be applied to the following month's service charge."

During a chat with Visible yesterday they told me that the $20.00 charge at time of order will be the only charge I see. They claim they won't smack you again when you activate the phone. I'll find out shortly when I activate mine in the next hour or so.
