The starter kit includes 2 SIM cards and a free 7 day trial of service. Customers get 100MB of 4G LTE data, 100 minutes and 100 text messages to use during that time span.
The purpose of the two SIM cards is so that you don't have to port your number over in order to try out the service. Mint Mobile will give you a new number to use with one SIM card during the trial, and if you are happy with your service, you can use the second SIM card to port your number over. For those that miss out on the Prime Day deal, Mint Mobile normally refunds the $5 cost of the trial kit to customers that elect to port in. The $5 can then be applied to a plan of the customer's choosing.
