Mint Mobile Review and Overview

Mint Mobile is a relative newcomer in the world of talk, text, and data. However, with flexible plan options and access to the largest 5G network in the United States, Mint Mobile is quickly making a name for itself among budget-conscious consumers.

About Mint Mobile

Mint Mobile was launched in California in the middle of the summer of 2016 and is currently one of America’s fastest-growing private companies. Founded on the notion that wireless should be affordable, Mint Mobile brings bulk service directly to consumers. In 2019, Deadpool himself (Ryan Reynolds) bought Mint Mobile because he believed, like company founder and CEO David Glickman, that big wireless was no longer the way of the future.

Latest Deals On Mint Mobile Mobile Plans

While plans change often, Mint Mobile is well known for offering even their highest service tier for around $15 per month for new customers. Once the promotional period is over, Mint Mobile customers can expect to spend less than $100 for three months’ worth of coverage. Something unique about Mint Mobile is that it offers service in bulk, meaning that customers pay for three, six, or 12 months in advance.

Mint Mobile Business Plans

Mint Mobile does not currently offer business plans. However, because Mint Mobile won’t check your bloodline, you could feasibly add two or more lines on a family plan for your employees who, if we’re honest, probably spend more time with you than your family anyway.

Who Is Eligible For A Mint Mobile Discount

Since it’s already dirt cheap, Mint Mobile offers very few discounts. If you’re looking to save money right now, visit the website and scroll all the way to the bottom. Under “shop,” you’ll see a section specifically for deals on phones and service. Mint Mobile does offer low-cost plans for seniors, which will be discussed later in this guide.

Does Mint Mobile Cover My Area?

Like most discount mobile service providers, Mint Mobile does not have its own network, nor does it maintain its own towers. Instead, the company utilizes T-Mobile’s cell towers and has coverage in all 50 states. You will want to keep in mind that Mint Mobile has spotty coverage throughout much of Nebraska, Idaho, West Virginia, and Western Oregon.

Mint Mobile Coverage

Will I Be Charged Extra For 5G?

If you’re looking for fifth-generation cell coverage without hidden fees, Mint Mobile has you covered. 5G coverage is stronger and more reliable, and it is free through Mint Mobile. You will have to have a compatible device, but 5G coverage through Mint Mobile is available in more than 6000 cities.

Can I Visit Mint Mobile In Person Or Online Only?

While we would like to say that you can pop into a shop and have a meet and greet with Ryan Reynolds at any time, you can’t. Mint Mobile is only available online. Why? Because by not having brick-and-mortar stores or in-person support, Mint Mobile can keep costs low and fully staff its call centers if you have a question.

Does Mint Mobile Have Good Customer Service?

Despite not having in-person representatives, Mint Mobile gets great customer service ratings. In fact, as of 2022, Mint Mobile has a 4.2 rating out of more than 9500 reviews on TrustPilot. 

How Can I Contact Mint Mobile

There are a few different ways that you can contact Mint Mobile.

To check the status of an order, call 800.683.7392. You can also submit a support ticket online using your order ID and email address.

What Kind Of Family Plans Does Mint Mobile Have?

Mint Mobile offers plans for groups and families starting at just two lines. Each member will have an opportunity to pick and choose their service level, which may cost $15 a month or less. While you won’t necessarily save on a family plan – Mint Mobile is already highly affordable – one exclusive feature is that Mint Mobile Activation Support specialists can help each member of your family disconnect from their old provider.

Do I Have To Sign A Contract With Mint Mobile?

No. Mint Mobile does not require you to sign a contract. Since you prepay for service, you’ll want to keep your plan at least through the end of your service term. Something to note is that Mint Mobile does not issue refunds if you cancel your service. The only exception is during your 7-day trial, where you’ll be eligible for a full refund if you are not satisfied with your service.

How Do I Choose A Mint Mobile Plan That Works For Me?

The best advice we can give when it’s time to pick a plan is to evaluate your current data usage. In general, the average data user hovers between two gigs and five gigs each month. If you travel often or do not have an internet connection at home, you might want to go for an unlimited plan. Mint Mobile offers these for less than $50 for three months of service.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Mint Mobile?

Aside from the fact that you’re buying service from Ryan Reynolds, Mint Mobile users choosing an unlimited plan have unlimited talk and text plus free calling to Canada and Mexico. Unlimited plan subscribers also receive five gigs of mobile hotspot service every month at no extra charge.

Does Mint Mobile Offer A Senior Discount?

Have you reached your double nickel birthday? If so, Mint55+ is for you, and you’ll pay in the ballpark of $15 per month for every three months of service. This premium wireless service comes with a few perks not available to younger Mint Mobile customers, including dedicated customer support and free Mintech Advisor service, which can help you with activation, porting your telephone number, and transferring your service.

If you’re trying to decide between Mint Mobile and other carriers, start by evaluating your budget, location, and willingness to pay for service in bulk. We like Mint Mobile because it’s affordable and doesn’t tack on extra fees that you’re not expecting. Ultimately, unless you are in one of the locations where T-Mobile’s networks don’t reach, Mint Mobile can help you save money without compromising connectivity.
