  1. Good deal on the phones if you can tolerate the YMMV 5mbs service on Visible. At least it is only 2 months (vs a 6 month to year).

  2. Are these phones unlocked ? If not, what are Visible;s unlocked requirements ?

  3. Visible has been going through some drama. They've been censoring a lot of their social media channels because lots of customers are having issues with the service. Over on reddit they've banned people from posting criticism. Really disappointing to see another service start out so bad.

  4. To avoid issues and reap the $200 deal here are some additional tips:

    1. Check from Verizon Prepaid coverage maps if your area a good native 4G LTE signal. You can also verify this from opensignal.com. As Visible is a MVNO with Verizon as network carrier. It is important to get strong LTE signal as Visible uses VoIP for Voice and Texts, with all communication happening as data on the backend instead of legacy 3G or 2G CDMA. If you are in a rural area then Visible is not a good option as it will not ROAM on LTEiRA.

    2. Read all terms and ensure you complete all. Some people forget one step and then spend time and resources arguing with Support Rep. Especially for the $200 required porting your current number to Visible during placing of new device order. Read the terms!

    3. Visible is new and has cloud based operations so it may not be smooth as compared to Tracfone or other MVNOs. If you need to interact with their support due to no fault of yours then courteously ask for Visible Perk pack as compensation where they will send you a gift box of stainless steel flasks or mugs, USB chargers etc.

    4. For getting discount on first month I had to use code tHlRl that dropped charge from $40 to $20. So minimum total service cost required to be held for the $200 card drops from $80 to $20.

    1. I was also able to use case sensitive code tGh99 to get $20 off first month of service.
