Visible is proud to introduce eSIM for Android, supporting the following compatible Android devices:
On May 17th
Now, users with select Android phones can switch to Visible in as little as 15 minutes, using eSIM (or, “embedded SIM”) technology. That means: no more physical SIM card! Activate your Visible account from the comfort of your own home using only your device.
Simply head to Visible.com and follow these steps:

Is support for the mentioned Samsung models live now?
Also, is eSIM only for new Visible activation, or can an existing Visible user switch from a physical SIM to eSIM on a supported phone? Finally, if the latter, does the physical SIM need to be in the phone to convert to eSIM, or can the conversion be done via the app without the physical SIM?
@DS-VisibleMgr Your post says Galaxy Z fold3 is supported but your IMEI compatibility tool doesn't allow my unlocked, purchased directly from Samsung Galaxy fold 3. I have already contacted your chat tech support. It appears your IMEI lookup tool is broken for the new phones if you truly do support these phones now.
Edit: After multiple chats with Visible support I have been informed that these newer phones aren't actually fully supported and the technology between each version of the same phone model is so different that all versions aren't supported. So their explanation is that their IMEI lookup tool is working perfectly fine but even unlocked phones with the same model number might not be supported because of some unknown hardware difference.
I'm trying to migrate my existing phone number from the cheap, old, ZTE that was supplied when I started with Visible to a Pixel 3a. The 3a's IMEI is on the compatibility list. The network setup confirms eSIM is supported and will even scan a QR code to download the eSIM. The Visible app says the 3a is not compatible. What's up? I really need this. If it won't work with eSIM, send me a physical SIM. I just need something that works now.
