    I switched back to Tracfone on a HSN bundle - $65 for a Moto E6 with 1200 each talk, text, data MB for a year. That's hard to beat if one doesn't mind a phone like the E6. It works fine for me. I'm...

    Visible data speed can be very inconsistent from moment to moment and place to place. If the cells you connect to are congested, it can be bad. Calls and texts usually always work.

    The XR is compatible with Visible if it is carrier unlocked.

    What speed test did you use? If it was Fast.com, that is from Netflix and Visible throttles video streaming to 2 Mbps. If so, try another speed test site. Speedof.me works well for me.

    It wouldn't hurt to try getting Tracfone to unlock it anyway. I unlocked mine a few days short of a year. Otherwise, it is locked to Tracfone and will only work on the Tracfone family of services.
