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...

____________________________________________________________________

As per Visible chat, we must activate the included SIM card within the 40 days of the ORDER DATE.

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.

Quote from teetee1 :
There are several unanswered questions for non virtual CC users:
1. my flip phone IMEI was accepted, there is no doubt that it's not a android phone for the swap. 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 free phone that is unlocked by turning in an old phone?
1. If you try to do something outside the rules then you open yourself up to that possibility even if others have gotten away with it.

2. $20 first month. They charge it when you buy. DOn't have to have a second month. If you want to do the second month too then don't swap just buy it outright and get the $100 mastercard deal.

3. Just turn off autopay.

Quote from eekster :
Use a pre paid card. They tried to charge me $25 twice & can't even get the phone to activate
For those who need a service like this, use Privacy(dot)com. It's free and it lets you create virtual credit cards that you can use for stuff like this. You can set specific per-charge limits so they can't charge you more than they're supposed to. You can also set recurring or one time, or a specific length of time for the virtual card to be active. I use it for all of my free trials and stuff. I don't even need to cancel the trails anymore since I set the card to close after a specific date.

Quote from helius :
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.
Isn't there some number combination you can enter on your phone to get the MEID or IMEI? Or in the setup "About" or inside after removing the cover plate?

Quote from gummi-eater :
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.
Activation is a poor term they are using. It means when they ship it or you get charged the 20 dollars and they ship it fast so your total would be 11 dollars and 20 dollars will get charged like in a few minutes when they create a shipment for u.

Could be its a locked phone?
Many of the Moto phones have more bands open and come unlocked. That is why they are so popular.

2G bands GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2
CDMA 800 & TD-SCDMA
3G bands HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
4G bands LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 5(850), 8(900), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500)
Speed HSPA, LTE-A
