Visible Wireless offers a cheap plan that gets you unlimited talk, text, and data on the country’s best network. And signing up for this great deal is easy.

Visible Wireless Unlimited Plan

We’ll go through the process of signing up, step by step. All you’ll need is:

  • Your phone or computer
  • A method of payment (credit card or PayPal)
  • If you plan to keep your existing phone number, you’ll need to know the carrier, account number, PIN or password, and billing zip code for your current phone plan

There are two ways you can sign up, using an app or using a web browser. We’ll start with the app.

Sign up for Visible with the app

If you’ve got a smartphone or tablet handy then the easiest way to sign up for Visible is probably with the company’s app. Here are the simple steps you’ll need to follow.

1. Download the app

Go to the Apple App Store or Google Play app store and search for “Visible.”

Then download the Visible Phone Service App.

2. Open the Visible app

When you open the app, you’ll need to scroll to the right twice and then hit the blue Got it button.

3. Hit the Get started button

You’ll see two options: Activate my service and Get started.

If you’ve already received a Visible SIM card in the mail from a previous order, then hit Activate my service.

If this is your first time signing up, hit Get started.

4. Choose your phone

If you want to use your existing phone on your new Visible plan, then click Check if my phone works and follow the prompts to enter your phone model.

If you want to buy a new phone when you sign up for Visible, click Shop new phones.

You can choose from a bunch of models, including flagship Apple and Samsung phones (Visible often has some great deals on the newest devices).

5. Click Continue

After you choose your phone, you’ll be taken to a checkout screen where Visible’s Unlimited Data plan will automatically be included in your shopping cart. Click the blue Continue button to move forward with your purchase.

Enter your information on this page and then click Create account.

7. Enter your mailing address

Fill out the address form on the page that says Where should we send everything?

Then click Continue. (Yes, you probably knew that, but we said this was step by step.)

8. Choose a new number or port your old number to your Visible account

The next step in signing up for Visible Wireless is to choose a phone number.

If you’d like to keep your current number, then you’ll need to enter the following information in the provided fields:

  • your current phone number
  • current carrier (i.e., the one you’re dumping in favor of Visible)
  • account number
  • PIN or password
  • billing zip code

Visible will use this information to port your current number to your new account.

If, on the other hand, you want to get a new number, click the Wait, I want a new number button at the bottom of the screen.

From here you will be taken to a screen where you can choose the first six digits of your new number.

Note: If you choose to get a new number, some promotional deals may not apply to your purchase.

9. Choose payment option

You’re almost done. Now you just need to choose a payment option—PayPal or credit card.

Click on Set payment method to set it up.
