Good Bye Comcast. Hello Visible and Mint Mobile
Posted by: gadje
Date: August 31, 2022 08:38PM
We have 4 cell phones. I left Comcast Mobile, and I will also cancel Comcast Internet tomorrow ($98/month for 300/10) and keep FiOS ($40, 200/200, no data cap). I moved 2 phones to Visible and 2 phones to Mint Mobile.

Signal seems good on all phones. After a while I decide if I stay as is, it move all phones to one of them.

I can see international calling rates on mint website, and they are pretty decent.

Visible on the other hand has no info about calling rates. They offer 500 min on the $45 plan to some countries, but nothing included on the $30 plan. I cannot find any info at all!

I guess I'll try to make a call tomorrow and see what happens. I found some reddit threads that I need to read.

Does anyone where I can find info?

Would this work for you?

If you’re attempting to call internationally on the Visible or Visible+ plans while using Wi-Fi calling the call will be connected just like a regular domestic call.

Looks like you can call for free, if your device supports WiFi calling.

Just switched from AT&T mobile ($93 for 2 iPhones) to Mint this month ($15 each for limited data). We'll see how it goes.

I'm thinking of making the same move, one phone, for the same $15 deal.

I'd be interested in following your observations, tuq.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I'll keep you posted. I'm actually waiting for this month's ATT already paid to get closer to the end, so we don't waste the month. I'll switch over on the 16.

That works when I am abroad and I want to call back home in the US.

As others have noted, WhatsApp works brilliantly. I do overseas calls daily, and they're all done through WhatsApp. Works flawlessly. You can also do video calls on it, too.

I don't like that WhatsApp is owned by Meta/Facebook, but there you go. I get what I pay for.

I need to call landlines, no WhatsApp. Or people with cell phone without WhatsApp.

I should refill my Google Voice balance until I figure this out.

Old fashion Skype should work for this, too.

Works the same way, I think.

Make a test call, but it might be different because of the landline.

No, it does not work. I tried. maybe I did not explain clearly what I want.

if I call a number in Germany, that is not whatApp, but a good old fashion regular number, that usually costs about 1 cent per minute or so. There is no way to do this with Visible. when I tried, it told me that I do not have enough funds in my Verizon account (yes, I know Visible belongs to Verizon) and it transferred me to add funds, when I got disconnected.

Apparently there is no way to make international calls from Visible (except calling Canada and Mexico which are included in the $30 plan). The $45 has 500 minutes to 25 countries, but most countries I call are not on that list.
