    ?
    Pay for what?
    iPhone 11 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.

    I don't see anywhere other than this listing hinting at a $5/month verizon plan. If you could actually get unlimited data for only $5/month on verizon using this, it would be worth it to many people.

    Looking at some other postings, I am speculating that this may be tied to some existing account where this is an add-on to an existing account (such as a $5/month connected device on verizon). Maybe this has been modified to report that it is a watch or something that uses an unlikely amount of data.

    Itís not an add on or made to look like a watch. Itís a prepaid service meant to work on old phones. What these guys are doing is flashing those phones onto the mifi device.

    Sigh. Itís not a scam.

    You guys seriously have never heard of these $5/mo prepaid unlimited 3g plans?

    Itís 100% against Verizon TOS and but itís definitely not a scam.

    Illegal? If Verizon finds out, service is disconnected on the device. You donít go to jail. Like I said, against TOS. No, the Verizon police will not be breaking down any doors.

    Most donít even use these because they tend to stop working after some time. Waste of money in my opinion.

    At least I understand this. Though I wonder how they can now offer "4G".

    I didn't think about grandfathered accounts. But you are depending on not only Verizon not detecting it and cutting it off, but that the person who sold you the flashed unit continuing to handle paying Verizon.

    While trying to look this up, I saw some people using old ATT plans where you pay the seller $70/month to continue service, and they pay ATT $30/month or whatever it costs. They have incentive to keep it up since they continue to make money.

    Changing the serial numbers/IMEI to obtain service youíre not paying for is illegal.

    I know they have been doing it for years on 3G. I didn't know they had managed to advance it to 4G.

    Still even if it works and AFAIK no one has ever gotten into trouble past their service being terminated it's really sketchy as IIUC for the level of modification it's pretty much theft of service like modifying a cable modem to ignore your plan limits.

    Changing the ESN/IMEI is illegal by itself with IIRC only exceptions made for repair.

    These are usually prepaid plans filled by card not an account addon.

    You can get a standalone unlimited data plan on AT&T for $30/mo by using any compatible cellular tablet but it's deprioritized after 22GB.
