This is a repost of this offer, but as the price appears to have dropped to $399, I thought it was worth putting out there again. This is now so low I think I made a mistake or misread something, but I guess I'll leave it to the SD peeps to let me know.

And I have SWAC and don't qualify. I was frustrated at $549. Pretty pissed at $399.

just ran gsx, phone bought 2 weeks ago and still sealed:

Activation Status: Not Activated
...
Registered: No
...
Carrier: US Reseller Flex Policy
SIMLock Status: Locked

do you know if carrier name changes once flex policy phones are activated?

also, for phone ordered yesterday, some guy from best buy called this morning to confirm sprint account info because he was trying to "pre-activate" the xs max before shipping it out.
so this step by best buy may be what locks the phone to sprint on apple's server. and perhaps the ymmv on when a best buy rep gets around to complete it is what determines if it's received as unlocked or not. which would explain why the phone from 2 weeks ago was showing unlocked through xfinity tool, but not anymore.
"US Reseller Flex Policy"
1. Does this mean it locks to first SIM inserted, regardless of whether it is Sprint or another carrier?
2. If locked to SIM after activation, looks like they got you by the kahunas for the first 2 months as the only way to unlock the phone is to have service for 40 days.
3. When the Best Buy dude called, to ask info did he ask for the PIN # of the port out number?

and how would you know? others have said that the phone comes unlocked and it worked with other SIMs
All iPhone comes unlocked since 8 onwards regardless of the carrier. It gets locked to 1st sim you insert and you request unlock code from the carrier.

When I saw this thread, I thought its good deal for $400. But if I add up all the charges and activation fee, tax its comes to $537 with some headache to get it unlocked. Also, needs to create an account with credit check (Not sure hard pull or not) and go through all the steps for 2 year old phone is not good at all..

There may be few who will say its great because they have existing sprint account or use their network which is easier for them. Again, everyone sees deal differently.

I am thinking of cancelling my order now that it looks like you are looked into an expensive Sprint plan for at least 2 months. Convince me otherwise?!

Agreed, not worth the hassle and credit check for an older device

So, if you now have ATT and want to be with ATT for the next 2 years, why don't you enter the ATT SIM. It would work, and lock to ATT, right? then, one can cancel teh plan.

The challenge is how to keep the phone but cancel the port in so it doesn't go through.

What puzzles me the most is that in for the port in the ordering process, it did not ask for the port number PIN .

is the credit check typically a soft or a hard pull?

well, maybe I was talking from a current sprint customer's point of view. Guess if you were not, then buying and porting out would be the hassle to tackle. should still be a money maker or keeper though, if you do it right and promptly.

You will locked to ATT. When you try to unlock ATT will reject it because the IMEI was not assigned to their network. In this case you need to go back to sprint and starts 3 way headache.

If you like this deal.
Buy the phone
activate the phone with sprint (Do not mess with this because you will have issues). Deal with sprint and get it unlocked
and use with different carrier

If you have sprint and need old devise good deal. These are worth $400 now not more.

Carrier credit pulls for new accounts are always hard pulls.

Is there any way to get a service discount on an already existing Sprint line? I would like to get this but im already with Sprint. Would jump on this if I was with another carrier and could port in to take advantage if a port-in deal.
