Read the reviews on various sites and Reddit. Lots of really slow speeds during congestion and overall most leave after a month or two.

I'm hesitant to sign up for this without clear terms indicating I'll get some sort of credit.

Currently have 2 iphones on Verizon Senior Plan ($90/mo)....Visible seems like an interesting option.

1) The senior plan cost would drop to $80/mo if I used a debit card or allowed Verizon to do direct withdrawal from my bank account (but I don't trust Verizon that much).

2) Senior Plan offers full speed LTE on my phone, max 600 kbps using hotspot.; Visible offers max 5 mbps on both phone and hotspot. I don't need speed on my phone...I need speed on my hotspot, using my ipad through my phone.

3) Senior plan includes mexico and canada....I don't think Visible does, but I don't need either.

The only reason for me to stay with Senior Plan would be if I needed more than 5 mbps on my phone.

Why is this a bad deal???

Visible is extremely deprioritzed like other Verizon prepaid services. You will encounter heavy slowdowns. Their service is VoLTE only, no 2G/3G fallback, so expect to see 'no service' often. They are still iPhone-only which makes it useless for most people. Visible has a history of outages as they are basically still testing service. There are also no multi-line discounts. Not a good value until they solve those issues.

You should add "for me" to your post. It looks like a very good value to me. I guess that's why there are so many different phone plans......

if your sprint deal is up, and your phone is compatible, switch to this, and then let sprint offer you $300 per line to switch back.

Problem is that this is LTE only. no access to other VZ networks so coverage is not as great. Even voice is VoLTE.
