    I can comment on the Visible side of things - I've never been a Verizon prepaid customer so unsure of any "gotcha" experiences. You have to create four e-mail accounts and initiate four orders from their website. Orders are most successful via paypal and you can have all four set to autopay on the same PayPal link. Your first month will be $25 and you will group all four accounts together by the time the next payment is due - so subsequent months will also be $25. You have an easy time keeping your PartyPay full since you are filling it with your own family's lines. Things can go wrong during number porting so don't wait until the last day of your existing service to begin your transition to Visible. Perhaps order on Monday - delivery will be FedEx for Tuesday - that gives you three business days to work out the number ports. Porting is set up at the time of order on the Visible site and completes when you activate their SIM card. The port will cancel your existing Verizon account so I would do all the ancillary lines first and then port the "main" number. Make sure your existing devices are Visible compatible, otherwise you should be ordering phones while porting numbers. You should be eligible for $100 to $200 in cash back per line because you are porting in numbers - the bigger kickback comes from buying devices worth more than $400.

    I have no idea if you are Apple or Android. iPhone eight and newer should work fine. The majority of SE models also work. Any model with an intel modem won't work so be careful with iPhone 7 and Six models.

    You could pick up some unlocked Moto E6 for cheap on E-Bay or Craigslist. The supply was wiped out due to making the front page of Slickdeals.

    In fact, search slickdeals.net for Visible front page deals and you can learn a lot just by reading the thread Wikis...

    That would give you plenty of time to make a trial run with a bogus email account - let everyone test Visible for a few days before going through the work and the long commitment of waiting 6-8 weeks for the Virtual mastercards before porting out again if it is not working out...

    Iphone Xr and later are Intel, and work. Intel 8 and X have Intel models (many phones sold directly by ATT and T-Mobile), and work if unlocked.

    The iPhone 6 has a Qualcomm modem. But is confusing to me, since there were apparently subtle differences in models for ATT/TMobile and Verizon, but still had the same model number. I bought an iPhone 6 from Apple, and it worked on Verizon (even CDMA). Others have reported that it won't work on Verizon.
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. But I have more phones than lines. Back to only Prepaid with the changes in the economy.

    I ported my wife’s iPhone XR from Verizon Prepaid to Visible. No drama and if the service didn’t compare with Verizon Prepaid, I would have heard about it in spades.

    The only model that isn’t compatible is the intel iPhone 7 and 7+. The 6, 6s, SE, 8, X, Xʀ, Xs, 11, 11 Pro will all work.

    Well it time for me to move out

    I have two weeks will start with kids line first . Then hopefully transfer to party plan

    My only problem how can I pay for all four lines one time I don't like paying for each line every month

    Can I set up autopay one credit card? I know someone commented PayPal link? But have not figured it out yet
