    Rejoining visible

    So long story short i ported out of visible (mistake) -bangs head against wall- anyway in chatting with them they said since i ported out and canceled my account the only way i can rejoin is if i make a new account with a new email address. I知 fine with doing so I知 just wondering is this the only way or should i keep trying with another rep?

    If you use Gmail, you can make a new address that is tied to the main address. It requires no setup. Just add a plus symbol and some text to the main address, e.g. [email protected]. Any emails sent to address+1 will go to the [email protected] account.

    Visible is known to accept this form of gmail address. It also works for Amazon Prime trials. This is much more convenient than creating new email accounts and then having to check them.

    Anyone know if you can reuse the Visible SIM if the account is closed and you want to start again?

    So Tommy, why did you go back to Visible from Verizon prepaid? I'm probably going to leave Tracfone soon and I'm debating between these two options because I might require hotspot service.

    Thanks in advance for any info you can help me with!

    Once the account is closed, SIM card cannot be reused, at Visible.

    Account is not closed for at least 59 days after missed payment due date.

    At Visible, some are often deprioritized to the point that the service is unusable.

    Don't see that complaint about Verizon prepaid, for whatever reasons.

    That's why I was asking about choosing Visible over Verizon. I've heard what you said about Visible from others on the forum which makes it seem odd to go back to a poor Visible experience from a better Verizon experience.

    Thanks for the info. I cancelled the account by chat. I did not need even the $25 expense for a level of service I don't really use. It was more of a cellular toy to play with for a while. I may want to use Visible again.

    No big deal about needing a new SIM. The SIM is free and they ship fast.

    Do you know if you get the $100 promo MC by switching from Verizon Prepaid? The list has Verizon and not sure if that includes Prepaid, ATT & TMO have separate line items for prepaid
