If you're not familiar with it, Visible is a digital carrier that launched past year.

Visible's been entirely BYOP (bring your own phone) up until now, and in addition to being able to buy its phones outright, you can also take advantage of 0% April financing thanks to a partnership with Affirm.

Credit: Tom's GuideThat's changing today (Jan. 24). But now Visible has announced that it'll be selling iPhones through its own website. One victor will be selected, who will receive a Samsung Galaxy S9 with two months of Visible service. The carrier has finally added support for Android devices, and to celebrate, we've partnered with Visible to give away a Samsung Galaxy S9, with two months of Visible service included. Visible offers zero percent April financing on all device sales with no down payment required for qualifying buyers.

As well as being used by Toyota , the batteries resulting from the partnership will be sold to other carmakers through Toyota . It will also encourage Honda Motor Co to adopt its batteries, according to the sources.

The MVNO is also introducing device sales, offering a variety of Android and iOS handsets for purchase directly from its online store.

Most mobile virtual network operators require you to buy your phone outright, but Visible's departing from that strategy, offering the ability to pay off your device in monthly installments. It's offering zero-percent financing with no-money down through financial services firm Affirm.

One final extra is a program called Visible Project which starts at $10 per month. For as little as $10/month, and through a partnership with Assurant, it includes protection from accidental damage, loss, theft, and out-of-warranty mechanical breakdowns. It also provides access to Apple Care.
