Best answer: Although Visible is powered by Verizon's LTE and 5G network, only select phones are compatible. This includes many popular devices, such as the Galaxy S20 family, the Pixel 4a and 5 series, and the Moto Edge. If you prefer Team Apple, the iPhone 6 up to the iPhone 12 Pro Max is fully supported.

You can bring your own phone or buy direct from Visible

If you already own one of the above phones, you can bring it over to Visible with no problem. You need to make sure that it's unlocked and not tied to a carrier.

To help make sure you're good to go, Visible has a compatibility checker on its website. Just type in the IMEI of your phone (that unique 15-digit code every phone comes with), and once submitted, Visible will let you know whether or not it'll work.

You can also check compatibility with the Visible App. Alternatively, you can purchase phones directly from Visible.

Visible sells every phone that it supports, and in addition to being able to buy phones outright, you also have the option of signing up for 0% APR financing with 12, 18, and 24-month payment plans through Affirm.

Will more phones be added in the future?

While the current list of compatible Android phones leaves a lot to be desired, Visible is committed to bringing the service to more phones all the time.

Since Verizon's LTE network powers Visible, any Android phone that works with Verizon LTE and supports VoLTE should be able to work on Visible at some point.

As new phones are added to Visible's lineup, we'll be sure to update this accordingly. For now, if you're looking for a phone to buy with Visible, here are a couple of enticing options: the Google Pixel 4a, the Google Pixel 5, and the Moto Edge.
