Visible’s new trial lets you sample Verizon’s network for free on an unlocked iPhone, warns CNET

From CNET:

Thinking of trying out Verizon’s network but aren’t necessarily ready to switch over to the carrier? If you have a recent iPhone there’s now a new way to do it.

Visible, one of Verizon’s prepaid brands, announced on Thursday that it will offer 15 day free trials of its network. Similar to T-Mobile’s updated Test Drive program from last year, the Visible trial takes advantage of eSIM which is a virtual SIM card that can live alongside your current cell phone provider in your existing phone. Once set up, this will allow you to compare Visible’s network (and by extension Verizon’s) to your current provider’s right from the iPhone you are already using.

As with T-Mobile’s program, Visible’s trial is iPhone-only to start and your phone needs to be unlocked and not tied to a carrier or be financed on a carrier installment or upgrade program. AT&T and T-Mobile, for example, require that you pay off whatever remaining balance is owed before either will unlock it, something that could be a potential roadblock for those on either provider that are considering a switch.

Assuming you have an unlocked device, eligible iPhone models include the iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lines, 2020 iPhone SE and the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
