Visible debuts ‘Swap’ program with free phone via trade-in

Visible, a digital service provider that leverages Verizon’s wireless network, today rolls out a new program for its customers. Called “Swap”, it gives subscribers a free smartphone for trading in an existing device and signing up for the first month of service.

The Visible R2 is a handset manufactured by ZTE which runs Android Oreo and features a 5.45-inch display. The device typically retails for $99 with a rate plan.

Other specifications in the Visible R2 by ZTE include a 13-megapixel camera, 3200mAh battery, and USB Type C charging port. Internally, the phone offers up 16GB storage space and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor with 2GB RAM.

Visible makes it easy for customers to score the free phone through its Swap program. In short, they’ll take just about any handset you’ve got lying around.

Instead of going without service, Visible will ship the Visible R2 by ZTE to consumers ahead of time. All you have to do is return your old phone within 14 days to avoid being charged the $99. As the carrier puts it, they’ll take “any Android that turns on, except the Galaxy S9 or S9+”. The deal is limited to new Visible accounts only.

Visible keeps things simple, giving its subscribers just one rate plan. For $40 per month a user receives unlimited calls and texts as well as unlimited 4G LTE data at up to 5 Mbps speeds. This no-contract plan also allows for unlimited mobile hotspot.

We recently had the opportunity to speak with Visible CEO Miguel Quiroga where we discussed the brand, its rate plan, and how the carrier fits in the space. Give it a listen in the media player below or find our podcast wherever you normally enjoy other shows.
