Back in January 2022, Verizon-owned carrier Visible announced an eSIM-based free trial program for users interested in trying out the network. The trial was available exclusively to select iPhones at the time because, back then, Android phones weren’t supported on eSIM at all on Visible.
Visible went on to add eSIM support on Android later in 2022 and has since expanded to more new models.
Now, the carrier is also finally expanding its free trial to Android phones too.
If you have a supported Google Pixel or Samsung Galaxy device, you can now sign up for a 15-day free trial on Visible, no credit card required. The trial works via eSIM, allowing users to just download their SIM and start using the network. You’ll need an unlocked, compatible phone, as well as not being a current Visible customer or having used the trial within the past year.
What Android phones are compatible with Visible’s eSIM free trial? The list is currently limited to Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy devices exclusively. It works on any Pixel released after the Pixel 4a (including the new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro) and most high-end Samsung devices, including all foldable, the Galaxy S20 and newer, and the Galaxy A54.
As a part of the signup process for the free trial, you’ll need to enter your IMEI. Visible also notes in an email to 9to5Google that you can test drive the network during the trial and, if you decide to switch, you can later port over your existing number from another carrier.
