Microsoft Lumia 640 GoPhone (Certified Like-New) is on sale for $22.94 + tax + FS at att.com.

https://www.att.com/cellphones/microsoft/lumia-640-refurb-prepaid.html#sku=sku7680350 

Just add whatever service plan, it will add an airtime card to your cart, then remove the airtime card before checking out.

Should be fairly easy to unlock.  Just make sure to do it before turning on the phone.  Or you can always buy an unlock code from fleabay.  I've gotten them for 0.99.

Ebates has a $5 cash back on phone purchases, so keeping my fingers crossed!!

  Really? I have a spare Lumia 640 with the update app installed. I gave up checking for the Win10 upgrade. I'll try it again, thanks!

  Previous experience says no.  Its basically up to you to refill within 26 days or account will be canceled

Lumia 520/521/635/640 (all ones I own) So I know by experience, if you like cortana to read texts aloud, be aware that feature is not available with wp10. Rolled my 640 back to wp8.1 just to have that feature.

All settings, Extras, Network+
Dunno if this goes back to 0 when the phone is reset though.

Does anyone knows how eBates calculates the total for cashback--Is it before tax/shipping or the total amount you paid?

I have the welcome bonus offer for $10 which I would like to take advantage of.

It won't let me check out without selecting a plan. Even removing the airtime card, it still shows a monthly plan price of either $30,$45, or $60?

rated:
Bought one.

Been an android user since Galaxy Nexus.. (May 2012)
Have been curious about the Lumia phones.. and if I would be able to use it the way I want.
I am mostly in the Google ecosystem.. I have Google Play Music All Access and use Chromecast many times. I guess I;ll have to research now if those can be easily accessible from Lumia phones or not.
One good thing is that this is a really good phone for a cheap price.. so it's well worth to see if you like the interface/apps/etc or not.

rated:
with cash back, never know with the fine print (min purchase, new phone, etc).  however, at $22.94, I'm comfortable enough with the price point where its a good deal without cash back.  Anything more is gravy.

Select a plan, any plan, and it'll place the airtime card for the same value in the cart.  Then remove the airtime card from your cart.  It'll says due today amount is for phone and tax, and due monthly is the plan amount.  My previous experience has been that they don't charge the plan as its contingent upon you to refill the account with the amount of the plan.  If you don't do it by the 26th day, your account is canceled.

Can we order more than one or place multiple orders? EDIT: 1/transaction. I'm not sure what the total order limit might be? 

Other than some possible airtime use, how does this differ from new?

rated:
Nokia cost like $6B so in comparison, this is a bargain.  Well...not really, but...

Plan on using this a BYOP over at Tracfone.  Thanks OP!  EDIT to add:  The eBates button for Chrome sent me to U-verse, so I went through the eBates site itself to try for the $5 cashback from AT&T Wireless.   Lots of other cheap Certified phones besides this one if you prefer Android OS

would this phone work well with ringplus?

rated:
Once unlocked (assuming that is possible), would this support other LTE bands (thinking of moving to TotalWireless)?

diamente said:   would this phone work well with ringplus?
  Work well?  You cannot activate this phone on Ring+ so the answer is no it would not work at all..  Thanks for the obligatory "will this work on Ringplus" question.  A prepaid thread is just not complete without someone asking this.

eswarjj:  It looks like Total Wireless uses Verizon so you are out of luck if you wish to use this phone there.  

UPDATE:  I received the e-mail letting me know the phone is expected to ship between 6/10-6/14    I even have a phone number

  If these can't be unlocked via the AT&T process, I think you could return them without a restocking fee, or at least try to. Isn't the AT&T unlocking program part of a settlement with the government?

i am already att customer and lost my phone, need this to replace my smart phone until i find anything else..will it work or it just works with new line/prepaid etc

  These are probably different than those NIB.  I'm pretty sure you'd not have your request honored via the website unless you had a totally different person to do it since buying one of these just made you an AT&T mobility customer.  Maybe a month or two down the road you might be able to request it.   I dunno, I'll be using it on AT&T through Tracfone so it doesn't concern me getting mine unlocked.

It will work on your plan but you'll need a new SIM.

  it's not letting me order just the phone. forcing me to add a plan.

I ordered this phone last night and received an e-mail this morning saying something is suspicious about my order and it has been cancelled. I chatted online with customer service who said I will have to go into a brick & mortar AT&T store to buy the phone. I have been an AT&T GoPhone customer for over 3 years and currently have a phone number with them, so this is odd?

rated:
Yes, when you go att.com unlock it free

rated:
so are you guys adding the 30$ plan and not using it so it automatically cancels it? it's forcing me to add either data of 3gb, 6gb or 30$ per line charge.

This happens when there is some red flag in your history but they will never tell you what it is !
It used to happen to people (including me) who bought too many phone within too short a period.

If you care to to read the OP (and other posts by him/her) it's explained very well.
