Verizon's Visible wireless service no longer requires an invite to join, only an Apple iPhone
Back in May, we told you about a new wireless company from Verizon called Visible. For $40 a month, subscribers could get unlimited talk, text and data. There are some caveats. For example, download data speed peaks at 5Mbps (compared with the 31.8Mbps speed that Verizon's own LTE service is providing in South Florida, according to Speedtest.net). Videos are shown in 480p (DVD) resolution, but there is no monthly data cap and of course, no contract to sign.

Back then, the only way to become a subscriber to Visible was to receive an invitation from a current subscriber. But today, we are happy to tell you that this is no longer necessary. Instead, all you need to have is an Apple iPhone 5s or later in order to subscribe. The Visible app, which subscribers need to install on their iPhone, is only listed on the App Store for now. Verizon says that eventually it will offer service to Android owners.

If you prefer live customer service over the phone, you are not going to get it here. Live chat, texts and social media are used to connect customers to help they need. Once you subscribe, Visible will send a SIM card in the mail. After you insert it into your iPhone, everything about the account is handled through the Visible app. You can install the app on your iPhone by clicking on this link.

And you can visit the Visible website by tapping on the sourceink below.

Pampering iphone costumers. That’s what you get paying premium. Apple services are top notch too.

Android users have something better than that crippled service. It's called project Fi. You might want to look it up, because it's way better than that capped 5mbps service. Project Fi only starts to reduce your speed when you reach 15 GB. Android users have a much better premium service than this crap.

I tried Fi and the coverage was beyond horrible compared to Verizon or AT&T. Might be fine for people who stay home on WiFi. So no, not better, and data speed doesn’t matter if you have no signal

The speeds may be better, but Fi is more expensive. I thought about switching to Fi so I could switch to an Android phone, but for unlimited data, it would be twice as expensive as Visible. I stream a lot of media, so I would never be able to take advantage of the "only pay for what you use" perk of Fi. It's a great feature for those who don't use a lot of data, but it wouldn't help me at all. As far as the speed cap, the only time I notice it is when I'm downloading apps, which isn't very often. And even then, it's not even bad. Once Visible opens the service up to Android, I'll likely make the switch.

They're working on Android. It says so on their FAQ section

Android users have Project Fi, which is fairly inexpensive and your data speed is only reduced when you reach 15 GB. Plus it automatically switches if one provider has a bad or low connection.

With Apple's current lineup of new phones...may as well be invisible. Sounds gay, but, Google's Pixel sounds more attractive.

Hmm, now that an invite is no longer required, I just might consider this.
