Things To Know About Mint Mobile

Overview

Mint SIM was launched in 2016 by Ultra Mobile.  In May of 2018 Mint SIM re-branded as Mint Mobile.

Ultra Mobile is an MVNO of T-Mobile and thus it runs on T-Mobile’s network and consequently so does Mint Mobile.

Unlike traditional phone plan providers, Mint Mobile does not charge by the month for phone plans, but rather requires customers to pay for service either 3, 6 or 12 months in advance.  By doing so, the company is able to offer exceptional rates to its customers.

WiFi Calling And Texting

If you are in the market for a plan that offers WiFi calling and texting, Mint Mobile can meet your needs barring you have a supported Android phone. WiFi calling, visual voicemail, and VoLTE were enabled for iPhones in the summer of 2018.

Coverage Map

Where To Buy Service Plans And SIM Cards

Mint Mobile phone plans can either be purchased through the Mint Mobile website, Amazon or Best Buy.

Supported Phones And Devices

Any phone that is compatible with T-Mobile will also work on Mint Mobile, as long as it is out of contract and paid off in full.  Most phones used on AT&T will also work as long as they have been unlocked.  Universally unlocked phones from manufacturer’s such as Motorola and Samsung are also compatible.

Customer Support

Customer support is available over the phone, by email, through an online forum and virtual chat. Support is active during the following hours:

Monday – Friday : 5 AM – 7 PM PST
Saturday : 8 AM – 5 PM PST
Sunday: 9 AM – 6 PM PST

Virtual chat is available 24-7.  Virtual chat uses artificial intelligence to try and answer your questions, and if they cannot be resolved the questions get forwarded to a live agent.

Porting Out From Mint Mobile

In order to port out of Mint Mobile you'll need to know your account number and PIN number. To get those you need to call Mint Mobile and ask for them. You will be asked a series of security questions before Mint Mobile gives you your account and PIN numbers. The PIN number is typically the last 4 digits of your phone number.

I have a Motorola G5 plus and had a G4 with Mint Sim now Mint Mobile going on my 2nd one year contract. Mainly for the $15 a month deal. It’s been fantastic. This year they increased the data to 3 GB from 2 for the same price. In the beginning I had a minor problem that was easily solved with easy instructions. A little typing to add Mint Mobile as my default carrier. It’s been flawless ever since. I highly recommend it on a budget or not. You have to fork over a year at a time but it’s… Read more »

I have an LG model LGMS323 (Dec. 2014) from MetroPCS. The phone is paid for. Should it work or does it not support all 6 radio bands?

I ordered the 3-month intro for $45 (3 months at $15 each), but none of the SIMs would activate on their webpage. They sent a SIM kit, which comes with the SIM for the 3-month plan, and 2 additional SIM cards to give to friends or whatever. One is a free 30 day trial SIM, and the other is just an extra SIM you can buy a plan for. I followed the activation steps and couldn’t get ANY of them to activate. I called customer service, and they escalated me to tech support. Tech support couldn’t activate the SIM card… Read more »

Pretty much the same here. I actually ordered a phone & plan from Mint, got both in record time & that’s where it all ended. The SIM “doesn’t read”. I tried the on-line “chat” & that proved useless. Called the toll-free number & the gal transferred me to “Tech”. “Tech” told me the phone’s not reading the SIM then gave me a toll number to call. I told the gal there what “Tech” told me & she IMMEDIATELY said “We’ll send you a new SIM.” 5 days and still waiting. Meanwhile, SOMETHING DID register when I activated the phone and… Read more »

This is a great deal. But Mint Mobile, not backed by any larger company, decides to close the door, what would happen to the prepaid and unused service? Do we get a refund?

Couldn’t be happier. On a Windows Phone I just got 63 Download 20 Upload in a major city with excellent T-Mobile coverage. WiFi hotspot works well. Sad that Microsoft is abandoning its phone platform. Online Dashboard works great. Email and phone support have been superb. Had a SIM card go bad and a replacement was Fedexed immediately at no charge. Unlimited talk, unlimited text and 8GB data per month for $24 a month when prepaid for six months. I hope Mint Mobile stays in business (I believe it is a subsidiary of UltraMobile) as there are so many competitors these… Read more »

My boost moblie iphone 7 plus powered by sprint it wasn’t unlock i just put the mint moblie sim card in and it worked right away a week later and still no issues everything on my iphone is working properly just like it did thought boost moblie. but i didn’t ported my number over i get a new one. i’m thinking about also switching my new iphone XR from boost moblie to mint moblie and porting my number from that phone over to mint. i’m hoping for the same results as i got with my iphone 7 plus.

Most-likely Sprint phones are not going to work properly either. Verizon and Sprint are CDMA phones, and T-Mobile/Mint are using GSM technology. Even if your Verizon/Sprint phone IMEI may check out on Mint webpage as a compatible phone, it will not work out properly. Mint tech support will actually name you a couple of phone models and operating systems, which definitely should work, but they have no idea about other phones and will not explain you why your Verizon phone does not work. Otherwise, I’ve been using Mint for over a year now. Coverage is not as good as Verizon.… Read more »

That’s not correct. Sprint phones also work fine. CDMA has nothing to do with anything in this matter. It is also a dying tech, and the networks are being shut down. What’s important are if the phones support the right LTE bands for Mint Mobile. Many do. GSM support may also be necessary, but nearly every carrier phone supports the right GSM bands for the service.

Did not support my Samsung S4, 4G LTE. When checked on Mint webpage IMEI, it said that phone is compatible. Spend hours searching and discussing with different companies tech support, including Mint’s. Could never send SMS and signal was very unstable. Many incoming calls would never be displayed. Phone would not ring, neither they would be displayed as missing. Lots of advices how set things, restart, reset. Later (months later) they started saying the phone is not compatible. The only good explanation found on the internet and, whatever, you are saying making sense, is that of CDMA vs GSM, which… Read more »

That phone is not modern. It’s about 6 years old. With that being said, it does support all the right bands for text messaging and phone calls to work. It does not support the right bands for data. It only has 1 LTE data radio band out of 6 needed for use on T-Mobile/Mint Mobile. Reset, restart wouldn’t fix anything. The rest of the things I mentioned should. From my own experience, some older Verizon based phones had a tendency to want to hang on to the Verizon network despite a different SIM card being inserted. The solution to the… Read more »

Yes, the phone is 5 years old, but it worked perfectly on Verizon network as of year ago, when it was 4 years old and when I was switching to Mint. Currently I use 5-6 years old Windows phone, not upgradable to Windows 10 and which MS does not support since summer of 2017, but it has been made for T-Mobile and has no issues to work with Mint. IMEI check for compatibility on the Mint webpage has been misleading. At least as of 1 year ago. Tech support may suggest you many things, but at the end they will… Read more »
