    Visible Swap Program questions

    Gonna grab a Moto E6 or ZTE A7 with the Visible Swap Program. I have a bunch of old Androids so I might do this a few times. Total due at activation looks to be $25.00. Can I lower this amount with a referral code? Has anyone tried using a Visa Prepaid card instead of their regular Credit Cards????

    Good way to get rid of unwanted Tracfone's. I wonder if these phones auto unlock after 60 days like a Verizon phone.

    Regardless of what Visible says about their phones being unlocked I beg to differ. I have 2 Visible phones both ZTE's, The A7 prime and the Blade 10 purchased new from Visible. When you insert a non Visible sim into either of these phone the apn settings area becomes grayed out and you cannot enter any information. I have tried a Tracfone (Verizon) Tracfone (T-mobile) H20 (ATT) and US Mobile (Verizon and T-mobile). None of these companies could get Voice, text or data to work. Even with the Visible sim in the phone the only thing you can edit in apn settings is the apn name and nothing else. The option to add an apn is not there. Neither phone will pass the Verizon imei check.

    I was able to use a Prepaid Visa loaded with $30.00 to do the Swap deal. They charged me $7.74 immediately and there'll be $25.00 due at activation. I went with the Moto E6 cuz it sounds like it might be completely unlocked and may work on At&t right out of the box. Might do this again to get the ZTE A7 to screw around with.

    I did the same. It said I was paying $10.34 immediately for taxes but instead I was charged $25 for first month. I'm sending them an old HTC Sprint phone on the swap deal.

    Just checked my Prepaid Visa account and Visible hit it for $20.00 when I signed up for Swap this morning. Not really sure what's going on but I'm really glad I'm using a Prepaid Visa with a $30.00 balance. I wonder if they're gonna try to get me for another $25.00 when I activate the sim??? I'm gonna go ahead and send them the old HTC Droid Incredible after activation to comply with the Swap Program.

    And I don't no what the heck the $7.74 charge, that was showing at checkout, was all about but it never came out of my Prepaid Visa. This Visible company is not giving me a good vibe so far!!!!

    Who do they use for shipping? I made the purchase on the 28th. The email I got says it's on the way at 7:30 AM the 29th. I've still not got a tracking number.

    Just wanted to confirm that the moto e6 from Visible is absolutely unlocked. I received the XT2005-5 version which is the one you'd get if you ordered it directly from Motorola. I'm running a T-Mobile Tracfone sim card in it currently. So far no problems.

    Did your Sprint phone have an IMEI or an MEID? My old Sprint phones only have MEID's, and according to the slickdeals thread, they don't accept those Sprint phones.

    Yes it does. It was an HTC One. I ran it through the swap checker when I placed my order.
