BRING YOUR OWN PHONE


(BYOP for acronym fans)


Don't you hate when wireless carriers make you buy a new phone to get the best price, but your current phone works just fine? With Mint Mobile, you can totally bring your own phone and still get the best price...we won't make it weird.


As long as you’re cool with how your current phone’s working, we’re cool with it. You can also bring your phone number and contacts. Completely up to you.

To BYOP make sure your phone is both:

Phone Compatibility

Check your phone compatibility below to make sure it's 4G LTE and VoLTE friendly.

OR

Best results by IMEI number

1. Enter *#06# on your phone’s dial pad. Some
carriers don’t allow you to access (Verizon)
OR
2. Check in the settings:
• Android: Go to Settings > About device > Status
• iPhone: Go to Settings > General > About

UNLOCKED VS. LOCKED

The difference between locked and unlocked phones

An unlocked cell phone means it isn’t tied to a specific carrier’s network and can work with more than one service provider. It’s likely a phone that’s already paid off.

How to unlock a phone

You’ll likely need to call your current carrier to have your phone unlocked. (Big Wireless always makes things harder than they need to be).
Since each carrier has different requirements to unlock a device, it’s best to call your service provider and ask for a “network unlock.” Most often a phone call, a visit to their webpage or one of their retail stores is required to start the unlocking process.

When can I unlock my phone?

With Mint, no. Our 5G comes included in your plan. For example, if your plan allows 3GB of 4G LTE of data per month, you’ll have 3GB of data to use at the fastest speed possible at the time, whether it’s 4G LTE or 5G.

READY TO BYOP?

If your device is compatible and unlocked, congrats. Now it’s time to get you into a plan.
