Recently I discovered a new mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that is backed by Verizon Wireless — called Visible — who offers unlimited data, messages, and minutes for just $40 a month. This means that I get the same great Verizon coverage for about half the price. That’s unlimited data, messages, and minutes on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
Like most MVNOs, Visible is an online only business. That means you do everything through their website or app (iOS or Android) and can get 24/7 support through their Facebook page (in my experience its very good). That also means you don’t have the luxury of going to an actual Verizon store for help.
Keep in mind that just because the price is cheap, doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing call quality or service.
Save Even More Money
Once your account is setup on Visible, you’ll get the usual “Welcome” email that will also mention a way to get your new Visible service for as low as $25 a month. They call it “Party Pay”, which is basically your own referral link to share potential savings with up to 3 other people.
You can also find other Visible customers who have room in their Party Pay groups so you can all pay just $25/month. Simply visit the Visible Party Pay Exchange Facebook group.
How To Get Visible
When you arrive at the Visible website you can either shop for a new phone or choose to bring your own phone. I chose to buy an inexpensive Android-based Motorola Moto e6, as I didn’t want monthly phone payments and all I needed was the ability to make and receive phone calls along with using the phone as a Hotspot (for internet access).
Next is shopping for your plan, which is easy with Visible as there is only one plan — single-line unlimited plan for $40 a month. No annual contracts, taxes, and fees are baked in. No additional nonsense.
You could also buy an unlocked Verizon cell phone on Amazon. But Visible has a good selection of phones available.
