Visible Adds eSIM Support to its Phone Plan

Prepaid carrier Visible updated its app recently with two major features. First, it now supports eSIM, which can be used on iPhone Xs and later. But this appears to be an option only for new phone numbers. I contacted customer support yesterday to see if I could transfer my existing number to the eSIM but I wasn’t able to.
