Phones are never truly “free”, so choose your next phone deal wisely
Visible wireless holiday deal feature with snow and more.

With an endless array of "free" phone offers, discounted rates, and new customer giveaways, have you ever wondered how much a free phone truly costs? Most carriers claim they're giving them to you, offering you an incredible deal and huge savings, but that's not the reality. To remove the veil, Visible has teamed up with Marques Brownlee (aka MKBHD) to uncover how these offers fudge the numbers. They bake the full cost of the device into your monthly plan by charging you more and tying you to the wireless carrier's most expensive plans. They also reel you in by cementing you to a long-term contract that's tough or nearly impossible to end.

Visible's base plan can free you from this nefarious practice at just $25 per month, every month, with no hidden fees. But here's the best part. For a limited time, you can get your first three months for $20 per month, saving $15, when you use code HOLIDAY at checkout. With that, you'll get unlimited talk, text, and data, including hotspot access, via Verizon's 4G and 5G nationwide networks. Let's take a closer look at how carriers skirt the "free" offers they're providing, with help from Marques Brownlee.
