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 [2/16/20202] , 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 V website it says trade in Android phones only. however, i confirmed thru chat that even my W 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 on line..
.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 V 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 V 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 V

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...

Don't know that this really will answer your question, but I placed an (non-active) Verizon Sim into my e6 and it immediately provisioned it for Verizon (all the APN settings, etc) and when attempting a call it just connected me to Verizon for payment (which means it is doing what it should-- unactivated Vz sim talking to the Vz tower). You'd still probably prefer to hear from someone who actually has it active on Verizon post paid, but I can't see any reason why it wouldn't
Xfinity (Verizon) sim work on Moto e6 no problem.

Got the following message one day after the swap phone was delivered:

Good news! The device you sent us has been inspected and qualified for Visible Swap. You don't need to do anything else, we just wanted to let you know you're good to go.

We hope you've been loving your totally free new phone.

Not to mention that this is really a $100 phone, not the $20-$25 that we are paying.

this is more like a $40-$50 phone that we're getting for half price.


I have a BLU vivo x5 I bought for $80 5 months ago, and that has android 9, 8core cpu, 3gb, 64gb, dual sim, fingerprint reader, and has been working well

The 8core cpu in the BLU totally kicks the snapdragon 435's ass.

This moto is just made from leftover surplus parts from the 4 year old parts bin which lenovo got for pennies on the dollar.

Galaxy S4 was a highend phone. But 6-7 year old, so battery might be weak now or need replacement.
Moto E6 is a low-end budget phone, but newly released.

Not a big upgrade in my opinion. But if you like newer phone with brand new battery, then might worth it.
Thanks for the opinion

If you have an active sprint account, order an unlocked e6 "with activation today" for $0. pick it up and cancel within 3 days. . .no activation charge, no service charge. No additional credit check obviously.

If you start a new account, same $0 if you order an unlocked e6 "with activation today" and you can cancel service within 3 days and thus no activation or service charge. Credit check involved unless you can convince (in store) them to do a no credit check account (like you could do directly on sprint website as you are paying all $0 in full lol and not financing).

--or-- if you pay the $30 activation and stay (on new account), you can get Kickstart unlimited plan for special price of $25 a month. Same YMMV in store of no credit check as above.

And yes, if you spend $8 or $9 one time, you can hotspot unlimited.

If you did this for say 5 lines @ $125. . .it might have more staying power longer term (think merger) than say a dated end special (the lines 3, 4, 5 total $100 but ends 4/31/2021). . .yes for 5 lines it's more expensive, but for 4 lines it's the same, with no promo period.

Please share a link for a new unlocked e6 for $40-$50. Thanks!

Oh, and BLU phones are El toro poopoo. I bought a few, and they all were paper weights within a year. Absolute junk.

It's pre-paid. What's there to cancel?

You can port out, or just don't renew your service after the month's up.

How do I cancel my service?

We're sad to see you go!

If you're looking to port your number to a new carrier, chat with our Care team to get the information you need (your account number and PIN).

Prefer to get a completely new number? Adjust your billing settings to manual and let the payments lapse. You're all set to go.

What kind of old phone did you mailed in?
I also have an 10 year old Sprint phone with no IMEI (only MEID and HEX), so I didn't sent in.
For the phone doesn't have imei on the label.
The 14 digits HEX is the first 14 digits of the IMEI, You can calculate the last verification code to become full 15 digits IMEI number

Some people posted that they couldn't make Moto E6 work with Textnow's free service or Tello, stating that this phone might not work on Sprint network well. But, based on what you say, that may not be the case? Do you know which sim variation this phone needs for Sprint?
