Nobody in this sub is going to pay you $125 for 4 used Kyocera Hydros. You can get 4 brand new Kyocera Hydros for $92 on Amazon:

Like someone else said in this thread, the absolute cheapest phones will give you a hard time and will earn you less money. If you have $100, invest wisely and purchase a phone with good solid performance:

  1. The Moto G for Verizon ($69.99) is a popular phone around here and has solid reviews from Perk users.

  2. The ZTE Z740/A&T Radiant ($70.16) is another solid phone that, in my personal experience with it, works really well with Perk; I've had no issues with it at all.

    Another decent phone on Amazon is the Samsung Galaxy Rush ($47.99). It's a bit better than the cheapest phones and a bit worse than the first 2 phones I mentioned.

    Now, if you want the cheapest phones on Amazon that can run Perk TV, the Kyocera Hydro ($33.79) and the Samsung Galaxy Centura ($40.36) are options.

    OP, I really recommend the ZTE Concord II by Metro PCS. This phone has the most value for the money (yes, you'll have to buy it with a credit/debit card) at only $29! This works just like the Moto G or the Radiant; it's fantastic for Perk TV and you will be impressed with your earnings.

    Hope this helps

Is it any better than the Hydro? It seems to be about the same price on Amazon

Amazon sales have tags on them showing timers. There is no timer on this. The prices actually went up because they have a history of being at $19.99 since early March. And I highly doubt there were multiple ebay sellers suddenly offering cheaper hydros. They've likely been up there for a while as well. The listing for $26 has 78 sold. I can guarantee you that wasn't all in the last few hours.

As for the used ones, they start at $7 used as "buy now". There's a few dozen under $10. Feel free to double check my link. I was never looking at the auctions.

Don't be pulling shit out of your ass. Things didn't magically just get more expensive in the last few hours.

Oh man, I didn't even think about bad ESN. Before I got your comment, I ordered the Kyocera Hydro on sale for $40. It will do the trick, though with a bad ESN, I'm sure I would have gotten a better phone for the money.

In all the research I've done, it seems the GPS should work without cell service, it'll just have to update once I connect to Wifi. Does that sound right to you?

It's actually been almost a year since I bought the phone. I had just thrown it in a drawer because I didn't originally have a great use for it. If you're looking for a similar crazy deal, I recommend http://slickdeals.net. You can either search for deals on cheap Android phones or set deal alerts to notify you when a great deal is available.

I have seen a handful of similar deals on the Kyocera Hydro in the last year, but I believe this is the post where I originally spotted the deal (it's dead now): http://slickdeals.net/f/6771428-boost-mobile-kyocera-hydro-waterproof-no-contract-smartphone-10-in-store-only.

The wiki section of that thread outlines how to do the rooting, remove bloatware, disable the cell radio, etc. The community there is great about compiling those resources for you. If you don't get the exact same phone, note that the rooting process varies for different devices. However, you can find a guide for almost device on these developer forums: http://forum.xda-developers.com

You really don't need to root it at all if you just plan to use it as a GPS/music player, but it's a great way to boost the performance on lower-end phones.

Here's the phone at its fairly low normal price on Amazon if you just wanted to snag the exact same one with a gift card or something and not wait: http://www.amazon.com/Kyocera-Hydro-Prepaid-Android-Mobile/dp/B008P2O89E

If you end up doing something similar and have any questions setting it up feel free to message me!

I have 5 Hydro's, and purchased three of them brand new for 30$ each http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008P2O89E/ref=sr_ph?ie=UTF8&qid=1409410942&sr=1&keywords=hydro
They were a little frustrating the first day or two because of crashes, but I haven't had a single problem since. I would suggest app cache cleaner and set it to clear the cache every 6 minutes. Runs smoothly :)
