Unlimited everything cell service, Verizon network, low as $25/month

This is a smoking deal, pretty much crushes everything else on the market. Starts at $40/month for an individual with unlimited everything including tethering (and that's a flat charge, not "before taxes and fees"), and drops $5/month for up to four more people in your "party," down to $25/month for each line. You don't have to be related or at the same address, and all four individuals have their own accounts and get their own bills, so no roommate-splitting worries.

Only downside I can see is there isn't a support phone number, all support is by email or text.

Boost, Metro, and other MVNO resellers have similar deals... boils down to who has best deals on phones when you pull the trigger. The majors occasionally have bundle deals that work out well, but are usually only available to latch onto for a few days, or a week or so, if you're lucky, when they pop up. The Visible deal caught my eye, but waiting to see how they pan out for the long haul. I was wrong w/ Spectrum (also on Verizon)...., I thought they'd hang in there because of their infrastructure, but they're kicking serious booty in the MVNO market, well beyond what I imagined.

Nice deal. I'm still quite happy with my $20.xx/mo. plan with PureTalk. Unlimited calls and texts. When I started with them it was 400MB data included, then went to 500MB (which I've still never hit), then to 1GB and as of last month, up to 2GB data included. Works for me.

Verizon owns Visible...similar to AT&T and Cricket.

I just switched all my lines to Visible from Cricket...kids now have their own accounts which they themselves can pay...my family makes up a whole "party" so everyone pays $25/month.

That's good to know. Verizon is the only one of the networks we hadn't tried yet, with this we should get a good baseline on which one works best for us (Sprint was the worst thanks to the lack of VOIP under LTE, although their coverage wasn't anywhere near as bad as the reputation).

If you're on Sprint and don't use tons of data, Tello has the best deal in town.

I may have to look into that when my two year deal with Verizon is over later this year.

Visible has been around since 2018. Verizon just doesn't tout it much. I've been eyeing it since about this time last year. I don't think there's any particular reason to be concerned about its long haul. with deals like this, which has been around since last november at least, it's not going anywhere.

Ultimately I decided to go with Xfinity Mobile which also has a Verizon backbone. With my data usage my bill has been either $13 or $26 a month.

If only I could add international service when needed. I might move my boys to Visible as I would save a bunch.

We are on total wireless. It uses Verizon service and it's $105/mo out the door including taxes for four lines. Unlimited everything AND hotspot included. Just bring your own phone.

I agree, but without the caveats (Sprint, low data).

Assuming your phone is unlocked, I think the only thing necessary is having decent Sprint coverage in your area. Or if like Will said, you need to be able to talk and use data at the same time then Sprint/Tello is not what you want.

Anyway, with unlimited talk and text, the rates for Tello are:

2GB - $14
4GB - $19
6GB - $24
8GB - $29
Unlimited - $39

I might switch to Visible if they'd just offer the $25/month rate without having to jump through hoops.

Visible fine pint
*In times of traffic, your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic.

This is awfully broad. Usually unlimited plans may put a ball and chain on heavy users. But here it looks like Visible customers will be prioritized below Verion customers...

A couple of areas we frequent are always heavy traffic...

Three of us in my family use mostly WiFi. We pay about $6.60 a month each.

Don't ask about it at a Verizon storefront. They have "never heard of it!"

If you want the highest speeds then you choose the highest tier Verizon postpaid contract plan and (after taxes & fees) pay roughly three times as much as Visible, per line, monthly.

My dad had a Verizon plan before we brought his line over. It was closer to 4X the Visible price.

True of most (if not all) MNVOs that use Verizon towers.

My $85/mo. Unlimited Verizon plan was lowered to $65/mo. after a chat with a local Verizon Store, due to my age. (55 +)

If there’s an individual out there looking for a line for themselves, send me a PM. We’ve got room for one more in our party to get the monthly down to $25.

Claimed.

Up here in the mountains (i.e. nowhere near a city) I just tested speeds using my phone as a hotspot and got ~15 MBps download, ~5 MBps upload.

Is this a Verizon standard program or is it the result of being an AARP Member or other affiliation?

Stopped in at a local Verizon store on an unrelated matter, and was offered the discount. I just checked the Verizon website showed that deal offered just in Florida?? I signed up for it a year ago in Idaho. Maybe it was a special offer.
