Unlike previous swaps on Visible, this one requires porting a number!

Superficially better than other "free phone with port" offers out there, because the phone is not locked. According to the ZTE site that Visible links to https://www.zteusa.com/bladea3prime, the bands are:

FREQUENCIES
LTE B2/4/5/13/12

Interesting that the A3 is "priced" at $99 ("or swap"), and the (all specs better except Android 9 vs.10) A7 is $99 reduced to $89.

laugh out loud ZTE doesn't even have the product page up yet (this was from their blog). https://www.zteusa.com/bladea3prime It 404's as of this post.



Comparison
to the last one Free Swap Phone (ZTE Blade 10 Prime)
ZTE Blade A3 Prime
Storage: 32GB + 2GB RAM
Processor: MTK6761 Quad Core,CPU 2.0GHz
Mobile software: Android Q
Front camera: 5MP
Fingerprint Sensor: Built into the back of the device
Rear Camera: 8MP
Dimensions (Inches): 5.77 x 2.79 x 0.38 in
Weight: 5.71 oz
Display size, resolution: 5.45" 18:9 HD 1440x720
Battery: 2660 mAh
 
ZTE Blade 10 Prime
Storage: 64GB + 3GB RAM
Processor: Mediatek MT6771 Helio P60, CPU 2.0GHz (Octa-core)
Android Version: 9 (Pie)
Front Camera: 16MP
Fingerprint Sensor: Built into the back of the device

At least it runs Android Q (10), but otherwise quite a downgrade from the last one.

For some reason, the phone still shows $99 at checkout even after choosing swap, entering the IMEI and it confirming the device is incompatible. I'm not able to remove the added item from my cart. Frown


Anyone had luck placing it for $0???

Blade 10 was available only for a few hours, it's an unfair comparison. It does appear worse that the A7 Prime, though, which is disappointing and tends to come back on occasion.

8-MP back camera with dual-flash

Even lower than the ZTE A7 Prime and Moto E, I'm out.

They added a new requirement to the swap program...

Swap your old device for a brand new one when you transfer your phone number to Visible. Unlimited messages, minutes and data, all on the power of Verizon's 4G LTE Network.

So you must port a phone number AND send them an android phone to complete the swap for free.

Got one. Traded in an HTC MyTouch3G. I really only needed a SIM to use on my wife's Note 9, so this works.
