    Where to sell $320 Gophone account?

    Have a go phone account for 3 years. Never used as it was a backup only. Want to get rid of it. Any ideas where to sell it. Thanks.

    Likely it is some type of pay-go account. Have to put in money on occasion to keep it alive.

    I have an H2OWireless account that I use a little. But the balance continues to grow since I only use a $1 or so a month and I put in $9 every 3 months.
    iPhone X is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    Do you have another GoPhone account with a monthly plan, hopefully under the same name?

    If so you can call, try and see if a CSR will transfer the balance to the other account. It's a long shot.

    Otherwise you may try to sell it in eBay but at a loss probably.

    Is the expiration date for that balance anytime soon?

    Transferring it to another account would e only reason for me to buy something like this. Otherwise an unneeded extra number from out of area. I’m sure can’t get balance from sale. Would have to be a good enough discount to make it worth the effort.

    Still cheaper than what a postpaid or monthly account would have cost.

    Sounds like my mom's .10/minute plan.
    Maybe you can find someone that can use it for international calling.

    I don't think people like paying for minutes on an account.

    I have t-mobile gold rewards account with $90 on the account but could not get a good price for it. I was trying to get half the dollar value plus the phone value. I sold many other used phones on amazon but this is the only phone I could not sell. I think I could have sold it just for the value of the phone for $20 or $30.

    It's not a long shot at all. CSRs are happy to do that for you -- but only if both accounts are on the same multi-line plan. Just combine the two already-existing accounts into a multi-line account, have a CSR transfer the entire balance of the "member" line to the "owner" line, and then end the "member" line 29 days later. By the way, it doesn't matter whether or not the two already-existing accounts are under the same name. ATT requires each customer to log into their account and approve the multi-line merger regardless of what anybody's name is.
