    Verizon Yahoo Mobile (Rebranded Visible?) $40/mo UTT

    Looks like a rebranded Visible plan at least to some extent, maybe not but it looks like the same thing with phone restrictions etc. No party pay either.

    Looks like LTE only and unlimited devices on Hotspot. This might actually work as a home internet replacement for some. I'm currently paying Comcast $45.00 for my 3mb speed home internet service.

    I know iOS is capable of 5. Not sure about Android.

    This would be $15 more a month than Visible though, if a user sets up party pay with three other individuals, with the only difference being 'ad free Yahoo mail' as far as I can tell.

    Maybe Verizon will rebrand Visible completely to Yahoo Mobile, adding party pay. They made a huge mistake buying it in the first place (not as bad as AT&T buying Directv though) so they want to monetize it as much as possible.

    One reddit user said the website mentions 5G coming soon but I couldn't find that myself.

    Honestly I don’t care what they call it as long as I get to keep what I have now. I have never had the hotspot speed cap so if I could keep that, bonus. If it goes down to 5, I’m good with that too.

    I do think calling it Yahoo Mobile is kind of smart since Yahoo is a well known name/brand. On Yahoo Mobile’s site, it does not specify the one device limit for mobile hotspot. I wonder if they didn’t implement it or just didn’t specify it but it’s there.

    I can see Verizon trying to recoup a lot of that money lost on the AOL/Yahoo! acquisition.

    Most people under 35 probably have zero brand recognition of the Yahoo! brand however.

    I do like the simplicity and easy access to this service.

    It also, as some have suggested, that eventually the Visible brand might be folded into this one if it’s more successful.

    For all those involved: I hope it works out and best of luck.

    Just like visible it claims the S10 isn't compatible when it really is. You just have to put in the apn settings

    Why the phone model restrictions? Would think any unlocked Verizon whitelisted phone should work.

    My S20 5G unlocked US version is deemed "compatible". Not that I need an overpriced "unlimited" plan...

    I think this is perfect for VZW.

    Market the same 1 plan (except adfree YM) to Visible (younger users don't need their hands held) $40 or as low as $25 for party pay. And $40 for Yahoo Mobile (older users) who need CS.

    I see VZW keeping both brands as separate entities.

    Not all Androids have the required software. Visible and Yahoo Mobile run on a cloud. I don’t know what exactly is required but that’s what I know. iOS seems to be covered.
