Screen protector and case cover

The screen protector and case cover that come with the HPG are terrible. They offer zero protection for the device. For better protection, try -

Case cover: TUDIA Merge Designed for Visible Hot Pepper Ghost Case, Dual Layer Phone Cover Case for Hot Pepper Ghost [amazon.com]
Screen protector: Any tempered glass screen protector [amazon.com] for iPhone 11 Pro Max / XS Max

That screen protector is just garbage, thin fingerprint magnet and can be easily cracked with your fingernails pressed on the edges.
True, the screen protector and case cover that come with the HPG are totally useless. I'm using a tempered glass screen protector for iPhone XS Max on my HPG. It leaves a small gap, about 1/4 inch, at the base but it gives the phone better protection than the original screen protector. For a case cover, I might get one from Tudia [amazon.com] if it ever goes on sale. The current price of $14.90 is too high for me for a spare phone.

Hi, my first month's service is coming to an end and don't want to continue Visible service. I have the "Autopay" option unchecked in my account (with a credit card on file) and wonder if I have to do anything else to avoid the charge for the 2nd month (and beyond). Thanks for advice and happy holidays.

Once 'Autopay' is unchecked you are good. Visible would NOT forcibly charge you for the second month without your permission. This is prepaid service. If you don't make your second month payment, your account be suspended and then after 60 days it would be terminated.

Thanks for the information. Very much appreciated. I will use it - streaming movies - until it stops streaming. Smilie

Looking at the back of the box, it does appear to come with just the case and not with a screen protector. What appears to be one is just a thin plastic film covering the screen.

Phone is adequate for the price (in this case, free with swap). Hope it gets updated to Android 10 at least. Basic entry level phone with vanilla Android OS, which is good.

Good to know that we can park a number for up to 60-days in suspended status.

I would to do swap to test service. If I do the phone swap and let the number/account expire after one month I am worried they will charge me for the swapped phone???

According to the terms of phone swap program, I think you should be fine if you return the phone with the IMEI that you used to qualify for the swap. I had received an e-mail from Visible that confirmed the phone I sent in qualified for the swap. Here is the exact content of the e-mail:

"Good news! The device you sent us has been inspected and qualified for Visible Swap. You don't need to do anything else, we just wanted to let you know you're good to go. We hope you've been loving your totally free new phone."

So I wasn't worried about the phone charge but the monthly service charge.

Not just OOS, but totally gone from the website. I think it's over. Personally it's the best cheapo phone deal of the year for me.

I wonder if moto e 2020 is next in line for the free w/swap. Maybe January. It's a halfway decent phone. Better screen than the HPG

I'm betting the A7 will be back for swap. That one is getting a bit old, and I'm sure Visible will need to clean out inventory at some point. Just like they did a few months ago bringing back the E6 for swap. I'll grab one or two if the A7 comes back.
