    Visible is worth it but if you don’t want data, there are cheaper options for you. Why not Verizon’s $30 prepaid plan that offers unlimited talk and text with 1 GB of data?

    Total Wireless has a $25/mo Unlimited Talk, Text, no Data - but can add 5GB of non-expiring Data for $10.

    As the other posts have mentioned, there are cheaper options than Visible, with better coverage (some roaming provided) and more phones supported.
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    Visible's strong point is the unlimited/unthrottled data offering, along with unlimited (but 5 mbps capped) hotspot. For heavy data users that kind of package on Verizon's network for only $40/month is unbeatable. However as above, if all you want is unlimited voice and text there are many better options.

    Total Wireless is a great Verizon MVNO for low data users, $25/month for unlimited talk/text and you can add 5 GB of data for $10 that never expires, so with low data usage you can feed off of that $10 for a long time.

    Before anyone jumps over to Visible they need to read the Visible forum on Reddit. It might make you change your mind.

    If you used complaints on Internet forums as a guide you'd never buy a car, use an airline, take any drug, or use any cellular carrier. That said, Visible's CS support is indeed pretty atrocious, no argument there. Your desire for the unlimited data deal has to exceed your frustration level in dealing with them is the best way I can phrase it. But OTOH once you get activated (which may or may not be a struggle, based on the phase of the moon) I've found service to be as advertised, reliable and no noticeable difference in speed as compared to my VZ postpaid account.

    Metro by T-Mobile has a good contender in this space. If you're looking for just a flip phone with unlimited talk and text that is $25 a month but if you want to get a smartphone you can get unlimited data with 2 GB of high-speed data for $30 per month. As long as T-Mobile covers your area this is an excellent plan and is what I would have if I wasn't on a family plan already through Sprint.

    No one writes a review unless they are unhappy.

    If you use spectrum for home internet you can get a unlimited talk text and 1 gig plan for $15 a month on Verizon.

    Tmobile has a talk and text unlimited plan for $20 a month.

    The problem with metro is, this $30 plan is hard to sign up for in store. Most stores will not give you this plan with their port in specials. Some specials do require a $50 or $60 to take advantage of, but, most do not anymore. Some stores though, will tell customers that a $60 plan is required to buy a device. You have to pay the cost of the $60 plan, and have to manually change plans when you get home. This isn't a deal breaker for all, but can be for some. Metro isn't a bad option at all, but their stores are easily their biggest downfall and can be quite shady to deal with.

    Previous reply is pretty good summary of metro.
    I've been trying visible for about a month. Began having a reception issue which took days to finally (I believe) attribute to the handset. Imo, most of the cs people know less about some technical issues than you do. In either case, as long as it works, all is well with visible.
    Cricket still has a unpublished$25 unlimited talk text plan. You just have to ask for it. Last time I asked, metro will still let you have 4/$100 with port in, again you've got to ask cs.

    Judging only by the number of party requests in this forum and even more in Reddit, visible appears very popular, at least for the present.

    I'm also wondering if some of the issue are because visible appears to only compatable with yl their own version of phones, plus iPhones. Could the issues be customers trying to work around these limitations, and that if one simply goes along with buying their somewhat over priced handsets, then installing and verifying the enclosed Sim? I admiti didn't care for it, but the port when they in seconds.

    I've been following their reddit for almost a year now. (IF) you are able to port in successfully and not have any account issues that require customer support, then it seems to be working for people. However, if something ever goes wrong, and/or you need customer support, you are screwed. Theres tons of real-user experiences where they customer support flat out can't fix most issues. Some people losing numbers, some people unable to use their phones for a week + despite a ticket being "escalated" some experiencing billing issues etc.

    you are basically a beta tester for their cloud network service or w/e they are trying to do.
