    Thanks guys. I guess it must have been a shady eBay seller giving out bunk numbers

    edit: $60 more and 2+ more months and it's unlocked. Since unlock is based on ~176 days in my experience, you only need to pay for 5 months before it allows it.
    Hi there. Setting aside the self-referral issue (I won't be doing that), can you explain a bit more about "drop the plan to $30 right after activation"? In other words, is there a mechanism to immediately move to the $30/mo. plan with the $60 that is paid in for the $60 plan required for this purchase instead becoming credit for 2 months of the $30 plan service?

    You got it. You pay $60 for the plan during purchase, which is what applies to your account when you activate the phone. Create the online account and change the plan to 2GB and it will show $30 charged and $30 credit for next month. A referral will save you another $25 for month 3, making it $5. You will need a code before you activate.

    Excellent. Thank you for the tip. That's exactly what I did and it worked exactly as you stated.
