VISIBLE WIRELESS REVIEW: 10 Things to Know Before You Sign Up in 2021

VISIBLE WIRELESS REVIEW: 10 Things to Know Before You Sign Up in 2021

NEW VISIBLE REVIEW: Verizon-owned Visible can lower your monthly cell phone bill to $25, but it’s not for everyone. I’ve been a Visible customer since 2019. In this video, I review the pros and cons of Visible to help you decide if it’s worth it. I also break down some changes Visible made to the service in February 2021, including a new referral program that drops your next month’s bill to $5!

    You will be SORRY!!!!!!!!!! Do NOT Sign up with visible wireless. They are holding my phone number hostage. Cannot provide me with service. And cannot give me my phone number back because they cannot release it until they provide me with service. This is a nightmare. I have a business to run. My phone number is attached to everything. Nobody can reach me. It’s a total nightmare. Do not make the same mistake I did. Do not sign up with visible wireless. He will be so so so so so so so so sorry. Go on Reddit and do a search. You will see how many people they have done this to. This is a nightmare.

    Be aware for 25$ you will get 25$ service. Esim they do not how redownload esim. Phone number transfer a huge problem for them, because customer service in overseas. A lot phone interruption internet is always slow, but on speedtest is always fast. Nice good service fake provider.

  3. Kerry Tom on September 13, 2021 at 10:24 am

    No thanks. I’m bias towards Mint mobile.

  4. Justin Case on September 13, 2021 at 10:24 am

    So this company is a giant scam made by verizon anyone who gives these dbags money is a giant fool and they will go out of their way at visible to make sure to smear egg on your faces… anyone who disagrees has yet to actually contact support good luck to all the sheep who fall into this pit of wolves

  5. Thomas M on September 13, 2021 at 10:27 am

    keep in mind you can also get around the 480 video limitation by using a vpn

  6. Kenneth F. on September 13, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Can we keep our same phone numbers?

  7. Su Freidman on September 13, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Another review a month later. Visible has become absolutely terrible. The first three months were fine. I could run just about anything. Now I can’t get much more then 1/2 a meg for internet speed. some websites take 2 minutes to load. Same ones that popped right up a month ago. Do not use them. They seem to be throttling now! Absolutely the worst customer service in the world. Everytime you call they will put you through a canned trouble shooting sequence… back and they make you repeat it. I spent 6 hours on their site yesterday.

  8. Deb Hufnagel on September 13, 2021 at 10:28 am

    Used to be you would be maxed out at 4 for the party plan.

  9. CEB Apple Jak 59 on September 13, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Issue comes with when one person in your party doesn’t pay the bill

  10. Jordan Caviness on September 13, 2021 at 10:33 am

    which credit card offers free cellphone

  11. Saleem Soomro on September 13, 2021 at 10:34 am

    Visible coverage is very bad in my area zip code 78660 I created many tickets. I am switching out to other carrier in a week or so. There is network congestion in my area. Even YouTube video is buffering.

  12. Zach Charlot on September 13, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Ping issues kill me for this. I was hoping for some 4g gaming.

  13. Mike Ameer on September 13, 2021 at 10:38 am

    Visible is a scam with terrible customer service that trained to lie

  14. Zach Charlot on September 13, 2021 at 10:39 am

    Any companies similar to Visible but with better ping? I imagine the "virtual phone network" that Visible uses ends up getting less priority over actual Verizon cell phones when routing.

  15. Petrol O on September 13, 2021 at 10:40 am

    💯Didn’t even mention the unlimited hotspot available in terms of data. That was a big game changer for me when I was paying $100 per month with AT&T and no hotspot available for the iPhone unless you paid an extra $25 per month, what a rip off. Been with visible for 10 months now and I am 90% satisfied. There are hiccups from time to time, but for the incredibly reasonably low price plan you really can’t complain

  16. lhj276 on September 13, 2021 at 10:41 am

    I just tried to make it work. It would not work at all and there’s no customer service. Beyond frustrated. Trying to cancel but there’s no way to cancel.

  17. Joe Hoffman on September 13, 2021 at 10:42 am

    I signed up with Visible after being with Verizon for over 10 years and the only problem I keep having is the SIM card will stop working and will not let me connect back to the network even after going through all of their troubleshooting steps including the final step of factory resetting my Galaxy S9+, still won’t connect so they send me a new SIM card and it will work again for a few days to 10 days then the same thing happens. I’ve been with them for less than 2 months and I’m currently waiting for SIM card #5 including the first starter card. The BS is the wait time to get the new card has been up to 5 days while I’m still paying for those days with no working service. Every time it happens they act all confident that they can resolve it no problem and so far the only solution has been to replace the SIM. I don’t understand why they can’t identify the problem. Could it be my phone causing this issue somehow? That seems quite unlikely to me but I’m no wireless phone expert. Does anyone have any ideas or input that may help? I invite your comments if so because this will not be a repeated cycle that I’m willing to be a part of for much longer. I forgot to mention that when the SIM goes dead it does just that because they never work in any other phone that I try them in either, verifying that the SIM itself is the problem, not the phone unless the phone can somehow fry the SIM. Otherwise, Visible is a perfect match for my needs if I can just get the SIM to work…

    Such a high quality youtuber. It’s an actual crime you don’t have more subscribers.

  19. SS11 on September 13, 2021 at 10:44 am

    Can do Party even you already signed up as 1 Line?

  20. Bill DeWolf on September 13, 2021 at 10:45 am

    thanks for the comprehensive review. i am unable to find a link to join your party…can you you post it?

  21. LovingAtlanta on September 13, 2021 at 10:46 am

    🤔Is anyone asking themselves WHY Verizon would even offer Visible, a company that they own, for cheaper, on their own Network to compete with the other company Verizon Wireless, that they also own? Look beyond the obvious. Question everything. 🤨🤷🏻‍♀️

  22. Brandon Thomas on September 13, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Visible is GARBAGE! I live in the FAR Northwest Suburbs of chicago… All 3 carriers have the best 5G/LTE coverage… Verizon may own visible, but it def has LOWEST Priority on their data network… If you have XFINITY or SPECTRUM internet or tv, their MOBILE Service is where its at. You don’t get as many bells and whistles, but they have exclusive agreements with verizon, giving them basically equal priority on the verizon network. I found XFINITY wireless worked better than verizons own prepaid

  23. Jonathan Anstine on September 13, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Is there a high speed data cap on the unlimited? If there is can i buy more. I work on the road and always hit my 30 gig cap on mint

  24. Steve Imhof on September 13, 2021 at 10:49 am

    In both of your videos you failed to mention data throttling caused by other members of your 4 person party, let alone a 50 person party.

  25. Greg Bell on September 13, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Buyer beware!! Their service leaves a lot to be desired. Save yourself the hassle and go somewhere else.

  26. Cris Gonzalez on September 13, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Do you know if the visible phones are unlocked or if they come with "visible" soft wear like other major carriers?

  27. Mamumonkan on September 13, 2021 at 10:56 am

    ABSOLUTELY SIGN UP FOR VISIBLE !!! . . if you think 1.32 Mbps Internet is fast 😀

  28. Su Freidman on September 13, 2021 at 10:56 am

    If you go to Visible’s site you’ll notice they don’t explain the 5 meg speed cap anymore……I know they’ve done away with this! I see it everyday on my phone. The say no limit for data but they don’t tell you it’s as slow as a turd on a cold winter day!

  29. Su Freidman on September 13, 2021 at 11:00 am

    I’m starting to have internet problems in the last few days……same thing that happens on some of the other providers when they start slowing things down.

  30. AskIve Solar on September 13, 2021 at 11:01 am

    I’m listening to the video and I almost thought you were a dope robot voice. Haha

  31. Kipp Chrismer on September 13, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Any issues with apple watch on Visible?

  32. Jerry A. Goldwire on September 13, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Have you tried hooking a 4g router to your visible phone? If so any info would be appreciated.

  33. Jeanelle Welch on September 13, 2021 at 11:02 am

    I have joined your party😌 -Jeanelle

  34. MuahMan on September 13, 2021 at 11:03 am

    I bought my iPhone 12 from ATT. Have an $80 dollar plan buy my bill is $160 a month after all their fees and taxes. I’m done. I don’t think I can switch to Visible wireless with an ATT phone.

  35. Ez P on September 13, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Would be using as hotspot data for laptop… in Queens NY any issues with intermittent connections??

  36. Mason Nichols on September 13, 2021 at 11:04 am

    I wish my phone supported band 13

  37. Vang Chong on September 13, 2021 at 11:05 am

    I had Visible for almost two years now, calling and texting were good but not great but I like Verizon 4G networks and unlimited data ,it’s fast and reliable, but Visible phones are locked , they can only be used on Verizon networks.

  38. Red Bread on September 13, 2021 at 11:06 am

    I wanted to say thank you for allowing me to be able to only pay 25.00 starting on my next payment plan. I been using visible for about 2 years and was paying 40.00 a month because I couldn’t figure out how to do the 25.00 plan till I saw this video. Then u was kind enough to allow me to join your circle. Thank you!

  39. Xziqa Npzqa on September 13, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Idiots at Visible messed up my porting request. They could not resolve the issues for more than three weeks. They sent me a brand new sim card, yet the hand set is screwed beyond repair. What is worse still is, they won’t talk to you on the phone, nor would they read your e-mail and reply. The novice customer support reps chatting with you don’t know much about provisioning. One thing they are good at is suspending your service if you are behind payment. If you want to switch to Visible, switch to a new number.

  40. Alien Cat Food on September 13, 2021 at 11:07 am

    480p is the resolution of DVD movies

  41. Chris B on September 13, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Seems like all the videos for no contract companies it all sounds good but the comments are filled with all kinds of horror stories. I keep asking which company is the best to go with but nobody seems to know the answer.

  42. S.P.Q.R Reborn on September 13, 2021 at 11:09 am

    If anyone wants a referral Code 3nHjdq Thanks for the review it helped me a lot!

  43. masood MR on September 13, 2021 at 11:10 am

    A friend wants you to try Visible. And, well, we do too. Enough talk, let’s get you Visible. Here’s your code: LZvgF

  44. JiHyun Lee on September 13, 2021 at 11:12 am

    Can a Visible plan replace cable/home internet? I use internet mostly for email, Facebook and Netflix. I also upload vlogs to my cloud server but they’re short clips of abt 3 minutes

  45. Monte on September 13, 2021 at 11:15 am

    If you don’t have a referral code, feel free to use this to get your first month for $5. REFERRAL CODE: 3qjWrM

  46. Enic P on September 13, 2021 at 11:16 am

    how do I become customer…specs?

  47. Mark Weiss on September 13, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Michael….if you want to test it out and then decide to remain as a customer, can you join somebody’s group, after the fact? Or…do you need to join from the beginning? I just don’t want to join a group and then leave in a month if it’s not the right service for me.

  48. Dipen Chauhan on September 13, 2021 at 11:18 am

    I currently have MetroPCS and get just 1 bar of signal at my house. Do you think switching to Visible might change that?

  49. ricker bear on September 13, 2021 at 11:19 am

    may i ask where those 2 links are at??

  50. Denise Pettit on September 13, 2021 at 11:19 am

    Can someone join your party and/or how exactly do I join a party?
