Visible is a New Prepaid Carrier Selling iPhones

Visible is a new Verizon-owned prepaid carrier, and it recently announced it will start selling iPhones at 0% APR.

As for what Visible is actually offering, you pay $40 a month for unlimited text, voice, data and hotspot usage at speeds of up to 5 Mbps. There’s no contract, no extra fees and you manage everything through an app on your phone.

I’m tempted to sign up for Visible. Last year they reached out to me to test the service but I never heard back. Time to test it on my own.
