Buying a SERO plan off ebay?

I am wanting to get onboard the Sprint Boat so to speak and noticed that on Ebay there are people selling SERO plans. How does that work? Can you just buy someone else's old plan? Seems kinda sketchy but I am new to this so I am not sure what you can and can't do.

I have been with UniCel for 8 yrs but they got bought by Verizon then pawned off to AT&T and I am looking to bail on them before they raise my rates through the roof! Sprint seems to be my best choice.

The one I saw on ebay was actually the new sero plan, which you can still get on your own I believe.

Yes, you certainly can.

I wouldn't go thru ebay for this kind of deal.

Did the plan start as a newer sero, and get changed to the old $30 plan? Could you pm me the sellers name? I talked to one, but didn't know if I could trust that it would be the old sero. Thanks and Congrats!

129.99??? Maybe I should sell mine there. But then I wouldn't have service. Nevermind.

My one motto has always been to not make money off of what I know, but man for 130.00 a line, I could do this easily! lol

But I would charge people upfront.
