*Old a7 prime wiki. Some info is out of date but the majority should still apply.

UNLOCK CODE FOR A7 is 123456 (if you get gray popup saying to call verizon)


To date [2/16/20202] , not a single swapped phone has been rejected.
people have sent in windows, android, apple, flip phone.
They have sent 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..

____________________________________
Below is wiki from e6 deal.
most info applies to both.


The ZTE appears to have better specs than the e6, is unlocked (as most/all Visible phones are unlocked) but the ZTE Blade A7 (& 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 A7 will work on TMobile and others. No clear answer yet.
__________________________________________________________________

Contacted chat & was told:
1. need to see imei ...that is a MUST..and must be INCOMPATIBLE with visible service. UPDATE: you can enter any imei, just put in around 15 random digits.

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. phone is unlocked (most/all phones from Visible are unlocked)

2. will accept most any phone that has a imei AND IS INCOMPATIBLE with V service. or enter a random IMEI

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...per V website:
"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."

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 ..appears to have better specs than the e6 and is unlocked as well...but that zte as well as the other cheaper phones 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)

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

6. you 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 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 within 14 days
Your return label will come in the box with the phone you ordered.


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)

PC Magazine phone review [pcmag.com]

Pros:
Good performance for the price.
Excellent call quality.
Runs a near-stock version of Android.

Cons:
Lackluster display and camera quality.
No 5GHz Wi-Fi. <<<<<Incorrect see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K...u.be&t=623

To whomever is trying to configure the ZTE Blade A7 to work voice/text, use a network app like "Mobile Network Mode" to force it to select different type of network.

1. Go to the app, select "Force Mode"
2. Set Preferred Network Type: either "GSM Auto" or "LTE/UMTS auto"

This should enable you to make voice call or text both incoming & outgoing.

I had success doing this for my CricketWireless. When doing voice call, it switches to 3G mode.

You must setup your regular APN to have 4G LTE enabled.

NOTE: APN settings are locked on the Visible ZTE Blade A7 Prime out-of-the-box.

An easy way to be able to add, edit, and save the correct APN for your carrier is to insert a spare SIM from another carrier...the one I used was a out-of-service Freedompop AT&T SIM. You can then hand-enter the correct APN info and save it as default. Once you re-insert your current SIM, you should see both the APN you saved and the (formerly absent) options to add/edit the APN.

FWIW, this phone does not appear to work on Xfinity Mobile, even with the updated APN. This may be a surprise to some, since ZTE R2s from the last Visible promo work are plug-and-play with Xfinity.

-------


Several statements on https://www.reddit.com/r/Visible/ that activation succeeded up to 59 days after (not sure after what, be safe and make that 59 days after making the order).

As far as the Prime 10, the (allegedly) Visible employee on Reddit said that deal is not coming back, as it was a one-time thing because they were out of stock on the 7. Plus they were pissed about SD people clearing them out and selling them on eBay for $150+ (their problem, of course.)

I did this deal last time, about 6 weeks ago. Use it as an audio streaming device, news viewer, and Roku remote control. Don't care for the narrow display, however (19.5/9).
