Trying to find out from Visible about data plans for my hot spot. Can't find any contact info any where. How does one go about contacting them?


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

Visible only sells an unlimited voice/text/data phone plan, no data plan for hotspots. Some of us have removed the SIM from our Visible phones and installed them in Verizon compatible hotspots with no complaints from Visible so far.

Some are using the Visible SIM in a hotspot with no problem and others have had their accounts canceled. Using a hotspot other than an approved phone is against their terms and conditions. The only way to contact Visible is through the Chat function on the Visible website. Chuck

That's the concern. Verizon can cancel your Visible account at any time for using a non-approved device. I'm sure I would be flagged for doing so as I'm using a non-Verizon 4G router.

I've had Visible for over a year now. Have excellent coverage wherever I go and I also use my phone (Galaxy S8+) as a hotspot while camping out in the boonies. It works great for this. I have also used my phone to stream to my TV which works well.

I just wish I could find some people to join my "Party Pay",like Dutch above, so the cost would go down a bit. It drops $5/person for every person who joins a "Party".

Great deal if you can get three people to join and the cost would only be $25/person/month for unlimited talk, texts, and data.

Instead of trying to fill your own "Party", just go to this Reddit page and join one of the several existing parties listed and enjoy the savings. Now that more than four people can join a party, the risk of losing a member has pretty much been eliminated.

Dutch,
I didn't know that you could have more than 4 people in your party. That is great.[emoticon] I used to have my wife in mine but she stopped using her phone altogether so she dropped out.

I joined that link you posted and made a post about my party and already have a new member. Thank you. One thing I noticed is that that site is not too user friendly if you are not used to those types of groups. What happens if you join anothers party and still have your own going?

I believe joining another group will drop you out of the first one, but I have not tried it. I should mention that now they do allow more than four members in a group, but the maximum discounted price is still $25. The advantage to more members of course, is that if one drops out there's still no price change, so the more the merrier.

I just joined another group that presently has 33 members and was accepted immediately. I had to leave my own group before I could join another. My own is now done.

For those who started their own Visible Party Play group, how is the group managed?
