Has anyone with a Galaxy S21 FE been able to get a SIM card and have it work fine? All of the S21 family is listed as compatible except the FE, yet the FE is compatible with Verizon.

Have you tried reaching out to visible support with your IEME number?  With new phones coming out regularly and visible adding support for new phones, maybe the online documentation is just lagging?

I did talk with support and they checked my IEME number. They said it was incompatible. My doubts, however, is that I've found some posts across the internet talking about their S21 FEs working, but they had to kinda 'gimmick' the system to get a SIM card.

I wouldn't recommend gimmicking the system, that could go against the terms of service and if caught that could have undesirable outcomes.

My experience/results with Galaxy S21 FE 5G on Visible:

  • Voice ✔️
  • 5G/4G LTE Data ✔️
  • WiFi Calling ✔️
  • SMS/MMS 

I hope this helps you and/or anyone else reading this post.  

YMMV, of course.

 

Galaxy S21 FE is compatible & work fine in all aspects with Verizon.

I guess Visible has to update their network/system.
