I've been looking at the Iphone 8 Plus for awhile. This had been $528 on visible before rebate, just checked this morning and the price has dropped considerably. Since the price is under $400, the rebate is only $100.

IPhone 8 Plus 64GB is $360. https://www.visible.com/shop/smar...one-8-plus.
IPhone 8 Plus 256GB is $384.

You can use the service for two months and get the $100 Prepaid Mastercard® Virtual Account.
You can also forgo the rebate and get the IPhone for a very nice price.


First month is $25, service afterwards is $40/month unless you get into a Party Pay group. Consecutive months can be as low as $25, go to the website to learn more. Pay for the first month when you activate, second month can be paid near the end on your first month of service.

I checked to see if this deal had posted, didn't see any prior posts.

QA Update: Only available in Space Gray 64GB

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!


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 IF THERE IS A PROBLEM

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.


Additional $5 Off Promo codes are available on Reddit. Referral codes aren't allowed on Slickdeals.

(1) when you're in high-demand areas of verizon towers, you get de-prioritized compared to regular verizon clients (2) Sometimes incoming callers can't hear me though I can hear them...I hang up and call back. (3) The only way to interact with visible is through chat (not phone or in person).
(2) verizon towers -- I roam to remote areas, so verizon has the best tower coverage currently for various "boonies" locations.
Visible is 4G only, meaning if you're in the boonies there's no signal. Service is very unstable. Many people are unable to receive the rebate -- I personally spent around 10 hrs of my time chasing the rebate before giving up.

Is it possible to set up my account to purchase the phone and then receive it and port my number afterward?
Going through the order process, you either port your number in or they set you up with a new number. I believe the actual porting of your number happens when you activate service. your number is still with your current carrier until activation of the sim card.

Bought the preowned 8 Plus from them for $408, holding onto Visible for at least 2 pay periods for the $200 card. Awesome how the phone comes completely unlocked unlike other prepaid services.. So far, horrible speeds on/off due to deprioritization. Looking to switch to Wing, unlimited prepaid AT&T & Sprint w/o deprioritized speeds until after 1st 22gb. $55 + tax, but can be $50 base + if you contact customer service.

Honestly going to contact support & most likely return & replace for iPhone X for near same price & $200 card as well.
How was the preowned condition?

Anyone who uses this in NYC area? How's the service?

Not good enough
Well, seeing as Visible is owned by Verizon and uses Verizon towers, I would say the best or 2nd best. Most tests show T-mobile or Verizon being the top network in the city.

ATT is not far behind, but there is a small 2% difference or so in tests. Sprint is way behind though.

xfinity mobile deal was still better. $250 off for phone after 90 days of service. Cheaper service too at $12/mo.

Not in the same league though. That was only for xfinity internet customers I presume, so YMMV...

Great quality, believe it or not, very tiny marks, if any. Typing on 8 plus as we speak.

As someone with a Verizon plan and 1 payment left on a pixel 2, is there any reason to not take my phone over to visible and cut my bill in half?
Truly depends on how your speeds are in your area. Highly variable due to deprioritized data speeds.

I just paid $450 for a 8 plus locked to straight talk prepaid. $360 is a steal for an unlocked one. Spring $24 more bucks and get 256 GB WOWZA.
sorry but, why?

This is tempting... the 256GB for an extra $25 is a STEAL.

My only hesitation is unfortunately the iPhone 8 does not have Band 71 for T-Mobile . If it did, Would of been a no brainer.
