I'm loving visible at $25 a month (with 4 ppl party pay, otherwise $40) unlimited everything. You now get $100 back after 2 months of service (gives you a net profit).
I'm not who you think I am.

Mint I got my sim card 2 or 3 days later. Best buy is running a promotion for mint mobile for 12 months 12 gb for $240. If your iPhone is paid off you shouldn't have any issues getting it unlocked
Dont see any issue with keeping your number.

I believe it's paid off, though the 12 month one is sold out at BestBuy.com

Do you have any issues with the service randomly stopping to work?

My phone rarely gets it but a family member of mine gets it way too often. It says emergency calls only. No calls work. I have to toggle airplane mode.

Hopefully it will go away after they finish the network updates this week.

Never had that. It's only been 2.5 months so far.

It seems many of the Verizon MVNO only have 4G service and can't fall back on 3G. US Moblie stated as such and there are reports that Visible is the same.

Anyone have any info on which VZW MVNO does roam on 3G?

There's also usmobile.com
And I've had bad experience with lycamobile. You can get similar plans from simple mobile on eBay which I found works better.
