Net cost of deal after paying for 2 month service is $271.
Model Description:SM-G960U1
Color: Only Midnight Black is available as of June 14th.
Compatible and Unlocked out of box for all US Carriers : GSM and CDMA
Wireless service: Unlimited Talk + Text + Data (5Mbps capped) on Verizon network. It is VoLTE only service with Wifi Calling option.
URL: https://www.visible.com/shop/smar...-galaxy-s9

Steps to buy are as below:
=====================
1) Signup for Visible with a referral code from your friend so that your first month service fee is $20 instead of $40. Monthly service fee is not charged until SIM activation.
2) Pay $408 for device while ordering. ***Important ***: Requires Phone number porting information submission while ordering to be eligible for the offer. If u do not have a number to port then you can get a number from Google Voice and unlock it for $3. See link: https://www.google.com/voice/b/0/unlock . Visible collects porting information before order can be submitted. Make sure Account Name matches. If Visible cannot do porting then they will NOT Ship out the phone and won't charge your Payment method.
3) Get order with free 1 day shipping from Verizon.
4) Activate phone with SIM and pay for first month service, which is $20
5) Pay for second month service which is $40
6) On day 42-45 you will get email from Blackhawk with redemption code for $200 Prepaid Virtual Mastercard which you can use for on-line stores or to buy e-gift certificates for Walmart , amazon, fuel cards, etc.

Cost breakdown :
==============
+$408 for device and sales tax
+$3 if you need to get Unlocked Google Voice number
+$20 for first month of service
+$40 for second month of service
-$200 for Prepaid Virtual Mastercard

Notes:
1. Many of my relatives who got their Mastercard in 45 days from activation date. This is a Verizon wireless subsidiary and fulfillment is risk free unless you do not follow terms and conditions of this offer - https://www.visible.com/aem/promo...disclosure
2. Use Paypal as payment method as in the past Visible had issues with Credit Card verification step timeout related auth failures.

ALERT: This is no longer a lowest price S9 deal. Visible has increased price from $408 to $509


Caution Buying - THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH COMPETENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENTS - BILLING IS A MESS - NOT WORTH THE HASSLE AT ALL IF YOU USE THE PHONE FOR BUSINESS OR IF YOU NEED 100% RELIABILITY. REMEMBER YOU WERE WARNED![/SIZE]
[SIZE="5"]PORTING IS EITHER VERY BAD OR WORKS GREAT.... IT'S ALMOST A COINFLIP.... IT IS POSSIBLE TO LOSE YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN THEIR PORTING LIMBO..... MORE LIKELY IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE AUTOMATIC NUMBER PORTING SYSTEM, EXPECT 5-14 DAYS FOR THE PORT TO COMPLETE

Visible customer service is overwhelmed because of the deals they are offering, can take hours to reply to you.

Service is 4g LTE only. All calls are VOLTE only. Will not work in areas with just 3G roaming.Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Video streaming is throttled as well as tethering. Just an fyi

Visible also has problems [reddit.com] validating addresses [twitter.com] and they have no interest in fixing these issues.

Pretty positive 60-80 Mbps is literally impossible over 3G...

Better than the 300$ AT&T deal for the same phone if you can unlock this one.

Wow. New and existing customers can get in on this... Might do it just to flip the phone. I've been as happy with the service since January (and testing it a few months before that) as I was with Verizon Post Paid service in Idaho, but YMMV.

Do you have to use the service? Can I use an unlocked google number for porting, activate the sim they send, but then use my current Verizon sim?

Any details on the prepaid card? Is there an expiry date and are there monthly service charges if not used?
