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.

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 »

Unlocked Verizon phones will not work properly with Mint.

Most modern unlocked Verizon phones will work perfectly fine with Mint Mobile. If you have a modern phone and you’re having issues, you either don’t have the right APN, the network mode is not set right, or the phone has not manually been registered on the network.

TOTAL CRAP! T-Moblie is just about worthless in south central Oklahoma. Continual drops, weak signal, and everything you DO NOT WANT from a phone company. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Go to Cricket. It is on the ATT Network, she strongest, most coverage. PERIOD!

Do you mean to say that the unlimited plans they are pushing for $15 like the one on the tv commercial I just saw are using 2g tech? I didn’t know that was even still possible, thought it was completely phased out a long time ago. That is slower than slow . Isn’t that misleading? I mean I remember them saying to toss certain phones and stuff cos 2g was no longer supported. So I guess you guys do support it but people just as- sume a certain basic quality and that a technology from the past isn’t suddenly going… Read more »

What kind of security questions are you asked? I don’t see where you give them any security info when you sign up.
