Who Wants To Swap Internet Device (starcomms For Visafone)?

Hi,

I have two Starcomms izap internet devices.  Got the second one for a provider who did a job for me.

Now I'll like to replace one of the Starcomms for a Visafone, so to have an option

Anyone wants to make a swap, please post here.

My Starcomms is quite new so please the Visafone has to be fairly new as well.

Location: Victoria Island, Lagos.

Thanks

Exact same device yes (Novatel).  A new one costs N17k at Visafone.

About using your Zoom with Visafone, I am sure they will tell you that it is not possible, but my guess is that it should be possible.  After all, should you damage your Visafone modem, all they need do is transfer your service to a new modem.  You may have to make an official approach to confirm the staff's claim.

Visafone is working quite well here in Victoria Island.  The primary reason I got it is for the times I work outside Lagos in surrounding villages of Oyo, Ogun State, etc. (even though Visafone defaults to 1x in those locations).  Since CDMAs have better upload quality, the gsm services was not an option for me (my job is mainly served-based).  While in Lagos, Visafone compares favorably with my Starcomms EVDO.  In fact, I am not renewing my Starcomms for now until Visafone expires early next month.  That tells you how well they compare.

That's cool. The modem you have, is it Novatel U 727? I already have this with ZOOM. A staff of Visafone was trying to offer me one for N27G, I told him I have the modem already and wanted to know if there was a way I could use the service with my modem,it appeared that was not going to be possible.

How good is the service, Zoom is working great for me, I also have Starcomms EVDO which is not in use now

Hi there, yes, I got a fair deal.

About Visafone, by "Platinum" package, do you refer to the 24/7 and un-metered (unlimited) bandwidth? If so, NO, it has not been stopped. That is the package I am using at the moment. True, they have introduced limits to many of the others, but for N16,000 (sixteen thousand naira) monthly, you get the unlimited package.

Hi, I am interested in making a swap. I have a visafone usb modem, and was thinking of buying a starcomms. My number is 08037946737, 08099536442, or negroprophet@gmail.com. You didn't leave a number.

Hi webgenius,

Thanks for taking the time to reply my posts - much appreciated.

You should not compare SIM-card based USB modems with CDMA, which are different and more expensive.

Actually I am being realistic. Take a look at this http://www.starcomms.com/business/izap_device4.aspx to see the current price of the exact device I'm offering.

Anyhow, I don't have to sell it.

Thanks again.

Be realistic, MTN modem is N8500, Glo modem is N8500. At least MTN is better. If you ask me it may be difficult selling above N15G. Someone I know is even offering it for N13G with 24 hour subscription. Modem prices have crashed.

Best of luck

Possibly.

N20,000 - N25,000 then. I bought it for N27,000 as it was a 9-9 package.

You may not find a suitable interest, thus consider selling at least to recover your cost

USB Modem. Specifically "EPIVALLEY"

I'm not selling; I said a swap.
