bring your phone

I recently purchased a new phone through Amazon with the intention of switching to a verizon based service. Amazon ad shows phone is "global unlocked: for use on any service, any plan" I'm ready to switch to Visible now, but you say my phone isn't compatible.  This is my phone which I want to keep:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B084CVPLLC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1           

I want to join your party! Please Help

You have a couple of options:

 

-Order a SIM card & take your chances

 

-Order a SIM card and plug it in an iphone before putting it in your Moto

 

-Order a 2021 Moto Power from Visible (though people say the specs for the 2020 version are better than the 2021 version)

 

Good luck

I would buy a sim and try it but I can't because my Moto G Stylus 2020 shows "incompatible". I went to a Verizon store today and they tried a sim and it worked instantly. I want to switch to Visible but am locked out.

Packy, if you select bring your own phone, IOS, and then a random iPhone, you avoid entering an IMEI, and you can order a SIM.

So the Vis SIM is universal to all phones android or IOS?

While SIMs come in different sizes, SIMs between Android and IOS are movable between devices
