After already switching from T-Mobile to Boost Mobile a few years ago, I decided to make another switch after hearing about another service. As you can tell, I have no loyalty! This time I switched to Mint Mobile, which uses T-Mobile towers. I already had an unlocked phone so I was able to make the switch pretty easily.
Mint Mobile Review
Mint Mobile offers a pretty simple to use interface on both its website and its app. They use a cute little green fox as their logo and offer many video explanations that answer most questions. They really make their best effort to make everything as easy as possible for the end user.
Previously, it was known as Mint SIM, which I had never heard of. They’ve been marketing like hell and they definitely got me to switch over fairly quickly.
They offer 4 different packages:
- Unlimited Talk/Text, 4gb – $15 per month
- Unlimited Talk/Text, 10gb – $20 per month
- Unlimited Talk/Text, 15gb – $25 per month
- Unlimited Talk/Text & Data – $30 per month
I went for the previous top tier package, but as they’ve continually been increasing the data per package over the years I’ve now downgraded to the 10gb plan. I paid just over $200 with fees included for the entire year, which fortunately included a $25 referral fee credit. This is the same great T-Mobile service that would cost you $60/mo for an unlimited solo plan. I’ll take those savings any day. Oh, and Ryan Reynolds is part owner so you know it must be good!
Try It First
If you’re having any hesitations, try it out first! That’s actually what I did. It costs $5 to try out the service for a week and they offer to give you the $5 back once you sign up. It’s practically risk free.
I tried it out and instantly noticed a difference in my LTE coverage as compared to my Boost Mobile service previously. While I was completely fine with Boost Mobile, the differences were clear – literally. The call quality is massively better in my area. This made it an easy choice to jump on.
What’s The Verdict?
If you use any of the larger carriers, like T-Mobile or Verizon, you end up saving a lot. This feels like a Geico commercial, but the fact is that you really do save and the service is great. I’ve convinced multiple people over the years practically having to sell Mint Mobile and the only feedback has been they wished they would’ve switched sooner. I have no skin in the game besides that I love the service and the price. Again, it’s practically risk free and the service turned out to be much better in my area than my previous service. Go for it! You really don’t have much to lose. They have my vote!
