What makes Mint Mobile’s customer care different

Text reading What makes Mint Mobile's customer care different?

According to an article published by Forbes, 96 percent of customers are willing to stop using a service or product due to bad customer service.1 Another study cites that 14% of Americans are most concerned with customer service when they take into account switching phone providers.2 

At Mint, we take these statistics seriously, which is why we’ve devised multiple ways for our subscribers to reach our Care Team and why we’ve strived to make Mint’s customer care different from big wireless providers (in a good way, of course).

We’re not the only people who think our customer care is a cut above. Mint was ranked in the top 2 for customer support in the U.S. telecommunications industry by PC Mag’s Readers’ Choice 2022 poll, higher than any big wireless company–and which also meant we knocked Consumer Cellular off their top spot after they won the last eight years.3 That’s because we’re all about being transparent with our customers…and because we don’t hate them. Or, as Ian Williams, VP of Customer Experience and Care, says: “We can provide best in class care while still giving you the best deals in wireless.”
