Please read these T&Cs carefully.They cover important information about our services provided to you (“Service”); your phone, handset, device, SIM card, embedded SIM (“eSIM”) (SIM card and eSIM, to the extent either technology may be available to you depending on your Device, your Service, and/or any other factor(s) in our sole discretion, are referred to interchangeably as “SIM,” “SIM card,” and/or (“SIM Kit”), data card, or other equipment or third party device used with our Service (“Device”); and any access and usage charges, taxes, fees, assessments, and other charges we bill you or that were accepted or processed through your Device (“Charges”). These T&Cs include terms regarding service plan changes and late payments, limitations of liability, privacy and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court.
You and any authorized users on your account will have access to account information and may be able to make changes to the account. If you give your personal account validation information to someone, they can access and make changes to your account. Those changes will be binding on you. Authorized changes may require your agreement to new T&Cs.
Acceptance. YOUR AGREEMENT WITH MINT MOBILE STARTS WHEN YOU ACCEPT. You represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state of residence (twenty-one (21) years old or legally emancipated if you are a Puerto Rico customer) and you are legally authorized to enter into this Agreement. You accept your Agreement by doing any of the following: (a) giving us a written or electronic signature, or telling us orally that you accept; (b) activating Service; (c) using your Service after you make a change or addition; or (d) paying for the Service or a “Mint Mobile Device” (a Device purchased from Mint Mobile, a Mint Mobile dealer, or other Mint Mobile authorized retailer (“Dealer”) for use with the Mint Mobile Service).IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO ACCEPT, DO NOT DO ANY OF THESE THINGS.
Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. MINT MOBILE AND YOU AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW (AND EXCEPT AS TO PUERTO RICO CUSTOMERS), ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR DISPUTES IN ANY WAY RELATED TO OR CONCERNING THE AGREEMENT, OUR SERVICE, MARKETING PRACTICES, DEVICES OR PRODUCTS, WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL, NON-REPRESENTATIVE, BASIS. This binding dispute resolution and arbitration process (the “ADR Process”) shall also apply to any claims against other parties relating to Service or Devices provided or billed to you (such as our suppliers, Dealers or third-party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding. This also includes any claims brought after your service agreement with Mint Mobile terminates. The ADR Process shall survive the termination of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the above phrase “any and all claims or disputes” includes any claims under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which are also subject to this ADR Process. As provided in Section 22 below, the Parties expressly agree that the arbitration provisions, as embodied in this ADR Process, shall be governed by federal law, including the Federal Arbitration Act and federal case law interpreting the Federal Arbitration Act. For purposes of enforcing any arbitration award, Mint Mobile and you agree that the exclusive venue shall be United States District Court, Central District of California (the “Federal Court”), in the first instance, and in the Superior Court for the State of California, County of Orange, in the event the Federal Court does not have subject matter jurisdiction or diversity jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, please be advised this Agreement affects interstate commerce, such that federal law would preempt state law. To the extent allowed by law, you agree to waive any argument that this Agreement does not affect interstate commerce.
WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES, MINT MOBILE AND YOU ARE BOTH WAIVING ANY STATUTORY AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW AND TO THE EXTENT THE ADR PROCESS AND THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, MINT MOBILE AND YOU WAIVE STATUTORY AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. THE ARBITRATOR MUST FOLLOW THIS AGREEMENT AND CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT.
Prearbitration Dispute Resolution. Before initiating any arbitration against Mint Mobile, you must comply with this provision unless you have a Puerto Rico address. For all disputes (except for Puerto Rico customers), you must first give us an opportunity to resolve your claim by calling our customer service department at (888) 777-0446 and providing a written description and supporting documentation of your claim, if requested by the Mint Mobile care agent. Mint Mobile and you each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. If Mint Mobile and you are unable to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after Mint Mobile receives your claim description and supporting documentation, you may pursue your claim in arbitration.
Small claims option. As an alternative to arbitration, Mint Mobile may choose to resolve payment disputes in small claims court in the county of your most recent billing address. Mint Mobile and you agree that if you fail to timely pay amounts due, Mint Mobile may assign your account for collection, and the collection agency may pursue, in small claims court, claims limited strictly to the collection of the past due amounts and any interest or cost of collection permitted by applicable law or the Agreement.
Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings following the above described 60-day period. You may submit a demand for arbitration using one of the following arbitration services through their Orange County, California office: (1) ADR Services, Orange County, California and (2) Judicate West, Orange County, California. However, in all cases, you must serve all necessary paperwork through our registered agent pursuant to Section 12.4 of these T&Cs.
You and Mint Mobile agree that the following rules will apply (the “Arbitration Rules”), depending on which arbitration service provider you select: (1) if ADR Services, the Arbitration Rules then in effect with the ADR Services (available at https://www.adrservices.com/services-2/arbitration-rules/) or (2) if Judicate West, the “Commercial Arbitration Rules” (available at https://www.judicatewest.com/Services/arbitration). lf for any reason the arbitration service provider you select declines to administer the Claim, you must submit your claim to the remaining arbitration service provider. If both ADR Services and Judicate West decline to administer the Claim, then you or Mint Mobile may file a petition in Federal Court for the appointment of an arbitrator pursuant to 9 U.S.C. Section 5. Mint Mobile and you agree to arbitration before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”). The Arbitrator must be a retired judge or appellate justice, but otherwise will be selected pursuant to the applicable Arbitration Rules. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 22 or any state’s conflict of laws rules, in order to ensure the availability of witnesses, the Arbitrator will sit in Orange County, California, where Mint Mobile is headquartered, unless your billing address is in Puerto Rico, in which case the Arbitrator will sit in Puerto Rico. If you live outside of Orange County, California, the Arbitrator shall permit you to fully participate in the arbitration hearing by videoconference, and the Arbitrator shall have discretion to allow any party to fully participate in the hearing by videoconference upon request. The purpose of this provision is to ensure that the ADR Process is more accessible than a court trial and that you are not dissuaded from bringing a legitimate claim because you need to personally attend court proceedings. In all cases, the Arbitration Rules shall apply, except as modified by the Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Arbitration Rules, Mint Mobile voluntarily agrees to the following: if the dispute involves less than $75,000.00, and you agree to limit your maximum recovery to $75,000.00, you may elect to have Mint Mobile pay for the costs invoiced by the selected arbitration provider (“Arbitration Costs”). To the extent otherwise required by applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, or as required of Mint Mobile to enforce the ADR Process, Mint Mobile will pay for or reimburse Arbitration Costs. Otherwise, Mint Mobile and you will equally share the payment of Arbitration Costs. The term Arbitration Costs does not include attorney’s fees incurred by you or Mint Mobile. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief and attorneys’ fees. Puerto Rico customers: Refer to Section 11 for details of the Puerto Rico Telecommunications Dispute Procedure.
Discovery: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Arbitration Rules, to the extent permitted by applicable law, you and Mint Mobile agree that discovery shall be limited to one deposition per side and ten requests for production of documents and materials, including any electronically stored information, reasonably tailored to the issues in the case, given the Arbitrator’s discretion to limit the production of electronically stored information or shift the cost to the party seeking the production of electronically stored information, depending on the circumstances presented to the Arbitrator. The purpose of this provision is to ensure that the arbitration process is more affordable than an action in Court and that you are not dissuaded from bringing a legitimate claim based on the broader range of discovery permitted in a court action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Arbitrator will have discretion, upon a showing of good cause and necessity to ensure a fair hearing on the merits, to expand the limits of discovery to include additional depositions, additional document requests, or expanded to include written interrogatories in lieu of additional depositions.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER. MINT MOBILE AND YOU EACH AGREE THAT ANY PROCEEDINGS, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION OR COURT, WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR AS A MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Neither you, nor any other customer, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding against Mint Mobile.
Refunds; Cancellation or Termination of Service Plans. 3.1 General.

3.2 Plan Refund Policy (Cancellations). You may request a refund and cancel your new Mint Mobile service activation for any reason within seven (7) calendar days of activation, and we will refund the full purchase price and any associated taxes and fees, as long as you: (i) have purchased a Mint Mobile plan on mintmobile.com; and (ii) complete our refund request form located at www.mintmobile.com/return-policy to cancel your new service activation (collectively, the “7-day money back guarantee” or “7-day risk-free trial”).

You are not required to physically return the SIM kit in order to cancel your new service activation. Refunds will be processed within ten (10) business days after you contact us. We will not refund any funds loaded into your account, including any unused data or international roaming. You are not eligible to request a refund for a new Mint Mobile service activation or SIM kit when forty-five (45) calendar days have passed since the date of purchase (“45-day refund exclusion”). SIM kits that are subject to the 45-day refund exclusion and that are not subsequently activated will automatically become inactive after three (3) years following the date of purchase. For avoidance of any doubt, this Refund Policy does not apply to any other purchase of Mint Mobile products or services, including but not limited to any Mint Mobile plan purchased from a national retail partner’s store or any other store or website.
For our Refund Policy for the Mint Mobile Trial Plan offer, including the Mint Mobile 7-Day Trial Kit and Mint Mobile See For Yourself Kit, see the below section, “Trial Plan Terms and Conditions.”
For our Plan Refund Policy where we suspend or terminate Service in accordance with these T&Cs and our Acceptable Use Policy, see below Section 15.3.

3.3 Activation period. All service plans, including promotional plans and Trial Plans, must be activated within 45 days following the date of purchase. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate any plan or service that is not activated within 45 days following the date of purchase.
Our Rights to Make Changes. This provision is subject to requirements and limitations imposed by applicable law and will not be enforced to the extent prohibited by law. Your Service is subject to our business policies, practices, and procedures, which we can change without notice.WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE OR MODIFY THESE T&Cs, OUR SERVICES, DISCOUNTS, TECHNOLOGIES (INCLUDING CHANGES TO OUR NETWORK THAT MAY IMPACT YOUR DEVICE’S COMPATIBILITY), COVERAGE, OR ANY OTHER TERMS IN THE AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME AND YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL SUCH CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS ON THE EARLIER OF WHEN WE (i) POST THEM ON THE MINT MOBILE WEBSITE, OR (ii) SEND THEM TO YOU (ELECTRONICALLY OR OTHERWISE). BECAUSE THESE T&Cs ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CHECK THE MINT MOBILE WEBSITE FOR THE MOST CURRENT VERSION. IF WE CHANGE THE SERVICE FEE APPLICABLE TO YOUR SERVICE PLAN, YOU WILL HAVE 5 DAYS FROM THE DATE WE POST OR NOTIFY YOU OF THE REVISED SERVICE FEE TO TERMINATE YOUR SERVICE PLAN BY (i) CONTACTING OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT AT (800) 683-7392, OR (ii) MANAGING YOUR ACCOUNT PREFERENCES ON THE MINT MOBILE WEBSITE. IF YOU FAIL TO CANCEL YOUR SERVICE PLAN WITHIN THE 5 DAY PERIOD, YOU WILL BE DEEMED TO HAVE ACCEPTED THE RATE INCREASE. ANY INCREASE IN TAXES, REGULATORY FEES OR ASSESSMENTS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED AN INCREASE IN ANY SERVICE FEE AND WILL NOT ENTITLE YOU TO EXERCISE THE FOREGOING CANCELLATION RIGHT. WE ARE NOT LIABLE TO YOU FOR CHANGES IN OPERATION, EQUIPMENT, OR TECHNOLOGY (INCLUDING THE NETWORK) THAT CAUSE YOUR DEVICE TO BE RENDERED OBSOLETE OR REQUIRE MODIFICATION.
Compatible Devices. You must use a supported, compatible Device to access the Mint Service via the Mint Mobile network. Only certain phones and tablet computers are supported Devices. Mint Mobile will provide you with a list of supported Devices upon your request. Supported Devices may include Devices that do not permit use of an eSIM and/or SIM card. Modems, bypass, gateways, automated relay devices and any other Devices used for commercial or re-direction purposes are not supported Devices and violate our Acceptable Use Policy. Failure to use a supported, compatible Device when accessing our network will result in immediate termination of your Service.
Service Availability.Coverage maps only approximate our anticipated wireless coverage area outdoors; actual Service area, coverage and quality may vary and change without notice depending on a variety of factors including network capacity, terrain and weather. Outages and interruptions in Service may occur, and speed of Service varies. You agree we are not liable for problems relating to Service availability or quality.
Important Emergency and 9-1-1 Information and Emergency Alerts.When making a 9-1-1 call, always state the nature of your emergency and provide both your location and phone number, as the operator may not automatically receive this information. Mint Mobile is not responsible for failures to connect or complete 9-1-1 calls for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if inaccurate location information is provided. 9-1-1 service may not be available or reliable and your ability to receive emergency services may be impeded. We or our network supplier may use a variety of information and methods to determine the location of a 9-1-1 call, including Global Positioning Satellites, our network supplier’s wireless network, the street address you have provided us as your primary use location (“Primary Address”), or other information. Even with this information, an emergency operator may not be able to locate you in order to provide emergency services. Other third party entities are involved in connecting a 9-1-1 call and neither Mint Mobile nor its network supplier determines the public safety agency to which your 9-1-1 call is routed. If you are porting a phone number to or from us, we may not be able to provide you with some Services, such as 9-1-1 location services, while the port is being implemented. If you are porting a phone number to us, it is your obligation and responsibility to make certain that all information forwarded from the port out carrier is accurate and complete. If you dial 9-1-1 while outside the U.S., 9-1-1 services may not be available. For important information concerning your limited ability to access 9-1-1 emergency services when connected to Wi-Fi Calling on a compatible Device, including your obligation to provide us with your most recent physical location (your “Registered Location”) whenever using the Wi-Fi Calling feature, please refer to Section 8.8 (Wi-Fi Features) of these T&Cs, as well as the 911 & E911 Disclosure posted on the Mint Mobile website www.mintmobile.com/911-disclosure, and incorporated into Section 8.8 of these T&Cs by reference.
Service Plans. 8.1 General. Your Service will operate only after you have purchased and redeemed a Mint Mobile Service plan. We may offer plans that can only be activated through the Mint mobile application including, but not limited to, our 7-Day Trial Kit and/or our See for Yourself Kit (each, a “Trial Plan”). Trial Plan access to the Mint Mobile service will cease according to the specific terms of your Trial Plan. Trial Plans are not renewable and you must become a paid subscriber to the Mint Mobile service in order to continue your access to the Mint Mobile service. For certain Trial Plans, you may only be able to transfer your mobile phone number from your existing carrier when you purchase a standard Mint Mobile service plan; for these Trial Plans you will instead be assigned a temporary mobile phone number. Upon converting a Trial Plan to a standard Mint Mobile service plan, you may choose either to keep the temporary mobile phone number or to transfer your mobile phone number from your existing carrier. Visit our website located at mintmobile.com for specific details. If you have activated any Trial Plan, you will not be able to transfer the temporary phone number associated with that Trial Plan to a new carrier unless you convert your Trial Plan to a three, six, or twelve month plan. For all other Mint Mobile service plans, airtime expiration is subject to the terms of your plan. Your account may be canceled for any violation of these T&Cs or the Acceptable Use Policy, or if the following occurs: (1) your airtime has expired (e.g., after 90 days on any 3-month plan) without a successful renewal payment, which places you in suspended status, and (2) you have not successfully paid for any plan renewal for 60 days or more while in suspended status. Upon cancellation for any reason, we may reassign the phone number associated with your account, and you may be unable to transfer that number to a different carrier. To ensure uninterrupted service, you are required to renew your account before your airtime expires. Please visit our website located at mintmobile.com for the latest information regarding our Service plans and Trial Plans.
8.2 Charges. You agree to pay all charges we bill you or that were accepted or processed through your Device. All Mint Service plans are measured on 30-day monthly cycles (including for purposes of determining your data usage levels, as described below in Section 8.6), except that 12-month plans may be measured on 30-day and/or 31-day cycles, for a maximum of 365 days total. We may offer you the opportunity to set up automatic payments through the method of payment on your account, which payments will be automatically charged at the end of your applicable payment cycle (“Auto Renew”). When you enroll in Auto Renew, automatic payments for plan fees that you incur will continue until you cancel. The recurring charge may vary if you change your plan or we change our prices, following notice to you. You may cancel Auto Renew or review your payment preferences at any time by (i) contacting our customer service department at (800) 683-7392, or (iii) managing your account preferences on the Mint Mobile website. You must change your Auto Renew preferences or cancel 24 hours prior to the end of your payment cycle in order for the change to go into effect. No minimum purchase is necessary to enroll in Auto Renew. For disputed charges, see Section 11. You agree to provide us with accurate and complete payment information and to immediately report to us all changes to your payment information.
8.3 Voice Usage. Mint Mobile Service plans include a voice plan as part of your Service. We round up any fraction of a minute to the next full minute. Airtime usage is measured from the time our network supplier begins to process a call (before the phone rings or the call is answered) through its termination of the call (after you hang up) and the network disconnects.
8.4 Data Usage and Messaging. Mint Mobile Service plans include a data plan (“Data Plan”) as part of your Service. Data usage is rounded up to the next full-kilobyte increment at the end of each data session. Your data usage includes, among other things, text, web browsing, instant or picture messages, and email whether read or unread, sent or received, solicited or unsolicited. We use filters to block spam messages, but we do not guarantee that you will not receive spam or other unsolicited messages, and we are not liable for such messages. All data purchased through a Mint Mobile Service plan (both data that comes with a particular Mint Mobile Service plan and any additional data you purchase as an add-on), will expire immediately upon termination of your Mint Mobile Service plan for any reason.
8.5 Permissible and Prohibited Uses. Your Data Plan is intended for Web browsing, messaging, and similar activities on your Device and not on any other equipment. Other uses, including for example, using your Device as a modem or tethering your Device to a personal computer or other hardware, may be permitted under your Data Plan, but are also subject to our Acceptable Use Policy located at mintmobile.com/acceptable-use-policy. Examples of prohibited uses can be found in Section 14 of these T&Cs and in our Acceptable Use Policy.
8.6 Data Usage Level. Mint Mobile has set a monthly (30-day or 31-day, depending on the plan purchased; see above Section 8.2 for explanation of monthly cycles) 5G and/or 4G LTE data usage level (“Usage Level”) for each of the Mint Mobile Service plans. 5G and/or 4G LTE access requires a capable device and SIM within an appropriate coverage area. Actual availability, speed, and coverage may vary. Data for personal use in U.S. only. Our network supplier measures your upload and download data usage (“Actual Usage”) to determine if your total Actual Usage, as aggregated over the applicable 30-day or 31-day period (“Usage Total”), exceeds the 30-day or 31-day Usage Level for the Service plan you selected, at which point you may be unable to send and receive data (which may prevent you from sending or receiving MMS messages) over the Mint Mobile network until the end of the applicable 30-day or 31-day period, except to the extent you purchase a data add-on. Partial megabytes are rounded up. Please note that “Actual Usage” includes all of your requests to upload or download data, whether or not such data is actually uploaded or downloaded, as well as network overhead. For example, if you request that an image be downloaded to your Device or your Mobile HotSpot (tethering), but travel outside of your network coverage area before the download is complete, such request will be included in your Actual Usage even though the image was never downloaded. The amount of high-speed data available for Mobile HotSpot (tethering) available for any 30-day or 31-day Service period is limited to 10GB for Unlimited plan and 20GB for Unnecessary plan. If you purchased an Unlimited or Unnecessary Service plan and you exceed your Service plan’s 30-day or 31-day Usage Level (40GB of 5G and/or 4G LTE data on Unlimited plan; 60GB of 5G and/or 4G LTE data on Unnecessary plan), Mint Mobile or its network supplier will reduce the speed at which you can send and receive data over the Mint Mobile network until the end of the applicable 30-day or 31-day period, except to the extent you purchase a data add-on. Certain data-intensive activities including but not limited to online gaming, file downloads/uploads, and video streaming, may be limited and/or inaccessible on network after data is reduced after 40GB on Unlimited Service plan and after 60GB on Unnecessary Service plan. For all Service plans, Mint Mobile’s network supplier may also reduce speeds during times of network congestion. Once you begin a new 30-day or 31-day period in your Service plan, your Service plan Usage Level will be reset and your upload and download speeds will be restored, subject to all limitations listed in these T&Cs (including, but not limited to, to the Data Usage Level limitations listed herein, 5G and/or 4G LTE network availability, a capable device and SIM within an appropriate coverage area, and the actual network speeds of Mint Mobile’s network supplier). Please be aware that your Usage Level is much more likely to exceed your Service plan’s 30-day or 31-day Usage Level if you use streaming video and/or a Mobile HotSpot (tethering), if you download significant quantities of music files, movies, and/or software applications, and/or if you engage in other high-bandwidth activities.
8.7 Protective Measures. To provide a good experience for the majority of our customers and minimize capacity issues and degradation in network performance, we or our network supplier may take measures including temporarily reducing data throughput for a subset of customers who use a disproportionate amount of bandwidth. If you use your Data Plan in a manner that could interfere with other customers’ service, affect our ability to allocate network capacity among customers, or degrade service quality for other customers, we or our network supplier may suspend, terminate, or restrict your data session, prioritize on-Device over Mobile HotSpot (tethering) traffic, or switch you to a more appropriate Data Plan which may result in an increased cost. We or our network supplier also manage the network to facilitate the proper functioning of services that require consistent high speeds, such as video calling, which may, particularly at times and in areas of network congestion, result in reduced speeds for other services. Additionally, we or our network supplier may implement other network management practices, such as caching less data, using less capacity, sizing video more appropriately for a Device to transmit data files more efficiently, and deploying streaming video optimization technology. Streaming video optimization technology is intended to manage data usage on the network, reduce the risk of streaming video stalling and buffering, and reduce the amount of high-speed data consumption used for streaming video. Streaming video optimization improves streaming video reliability as well as makes room for other users to enjoy higher browsing speeds. The streaming video optimization process is agnostic as to the streaming video content itself and to the website that provides it, however, we or our network supplier may prioritize on-Device data over Mobile HotSpot (tethering) data. While most changes to streaming video files are likely to be indiscernible, the optimization process may minimally impact the appearance of the streaming video as displayed on your Device. These practices operate without regard to the content itself or the source of the content, and do not discriminate against offerings that might compete against those offered by us on the basis of such competition.
8.8 Wi-Fi Features. Mint Mobile, at its sole discretion, may make available Wi-Fi voice and text messaging services, i.e., the ability to originate and terminate calls and text messages over a Wi-Fi connection (“Wi-Fi Calling). If offered by Mint Mobile, Wi-Fi Calling will only be available for Mint Mobile customers that (i) have a Wi-Fi capable Device with Mint Mobile supported Wi-Fi calling capability, (ii) have Wi-Fi Calling service provisioned on their account by calling Customer Support or updating preferences in account management, and updating the applicable Wi-Fi calling settings on your Device, (iii) have a compatible SIM card or eSIM, and (iv) are connected to functioning third-party internet service. Not all services available on Mint Mobile’s network supplier’s network are available while using Wi-Fi Calling. For example, emergency alerts may not be available with Wi-Fi Calling. You understand and acknowledge that calling 9-1-1 via Wi-Fi Calling uses the internet and operates differently than calling 9-1-1 via traditional telephone services (wireless or wired), including the traditional wireless telephone services offered by Mint Mobile (see our complete 9-1-1 & E911 Disclosure posted on the Mint Mobile website at mintmobile.com/911-disclosure, which you hereby agree to and is incorporated herein by reference). Solely by way of example, and without limiting any of the disclosures contained in our 911 & E911 Disclosure, 9-1-1 may not work during internet outages or disruptions, when attempting to call 9-1-1 via Wi-Fi Calling from any location. In addition, emergency personnel may not be able to identify your phone number to call you back, and 9-1-1 calls may otherwise be delayed or dropped due to network architecture, when dialing 9-1-1 via Wi-Fi Calling, from any location. In addition, if Mint Mobile makes Wi-Fi Calling available to you, you must provide us with any update, the physical location at which you will use Wi-Fi Calling (the “Registered Location”). If your Registered Location changes, either temporarily or permanently (e.g., when using Wi-Fi Calling at any other physical location), you must promptly update your Registered Location with Mint Mobile. You may provide us with your Registered Location at any time within the applicable device settings of a compatible Device. If you do not provide us with an accurate Registered Location and update it promptly for any and all changes in your location as described above, we or our network supplier may block your usage of certain Wi-Fi Networks. You also understand and acknowledge that if you attempt to dial 9-1-1 via Wi-Fi Calling from any location other than your Registered Location, emergency personnel may not be able to identify your location, your 9-1-1 call may not complete, and/or your 9-1-1 call may be routed to emergency personnel in a different location. You understand and acknowledge that it may take up to 2 hours for changes in address to be updated, and you should notify Mint Mobile in advance of any temporary or permanent changes to your Registered Location as described above. NEITHER MINT MOBILE NOR ITS NETWORK SUPPLIER IS RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANYTHING RELATED TO YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY WI-FI CALLING MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY FAILURE OF EMERGENCY CALLS (WHETHER 9-1-1 CALLS OR OTHERWISE). For additional information regarding dialing 9-1-1, either with or without Wi-Fi Calling, please see Section 7 of these T&Cs. Wi-Fi Calling may decrement Service plan minutes. Most devices will not transition between Wi-Fi and the wireless network. Devices using wireless connections may be vulnerable to unauthorized attempts to access data and software stored on the Device.
8.11 Roaming. Your Device may connect to another provider’s network (“Roaming”) even when you are within the Mint Mobile coverage area. Check your Device to determine if you are Roaming. There may be extra charges (including long distance, tolls, data usage) and higher rates for Roaming usage, and your quality and availability of service may vary significantly. Our Roaming charges and rates are subject to change at any time and any such changes are effective forty-five (45) days after the posting of same to the Mint Mobile website. Please check our website frequently so that you are aware of our Roaming charges and rates and any changes thereto.
8.12 Suspension and Cancellation. If your account is deactivated due to nonpayment, your account will be in a suspended status for 60 days. If your account is not reactivated within the 60-day period, it will be cancelled. If your account is cancelled, your remaining balance will be forfeited, except as otherwise required by applicable law. For any cancelled accounts, we may reassign the phone number associated with your account, and may be unable to transfer that number to a different carrier.
8.13 eSIM. Only available on compatible and eligible, unlocked devices, on certain plans, at certain times, in Mint Mobile’s sole discretion. Compatible and eligible devices, and the availability of eSIM (or SIM cards), are subject to change in Mint Mobile’s sole discretion. The current list of eligible devices may be provided (pursuant Section 5). Customers with compatible and eligible devices are permitted to switch between an eSIM and a physical SIM card and vice versa. Limited to one activated eSIM per device.
International Long Distance / Global Text. 9.1 General. All international long-distance services included in your Service are handled by a third party not affiliated with Mint Mobile, and are delineated on your receipts separately from the services provided by Mint Mobile.
9.2 International Roaming Credits. Your Mint Mobile Service plan may include international roaming credits (“Credits”) that you can use for international roaming minutes or data without additional charge. The amount of Credits that you receive in connection with your Service plan may be determined by us in our sole discretion, and additional details are available on our website. Mint Mobile may allow you to store Credits in your account for use at a later time. When your balance of Credits is zero, unless you add Credits to your account, you will not be able to use international roaming Service. Please be aware that except as provided by these T&Cs, Mint Mobile will be under no obligation to offer any refunds or reimbursements for Credits that you receive from Mint Mobile.
9.3 International Texts. “Global Text” and “Unlimited Global Text” means text or unlimited text only to applicable mobile-to-mobile destinations, and excludes audio, picture, and video messaging. Data usage rates and charges may apply if you send audio, pictures, and/or video messages to an international mobile-to-mobile destination.
Taxes, Fees and Surcharges.You are responsible for, and shall pay, the taxes, fees and surcharges set forth in Sections 10.1 – 10.5 below (“Taxes, Fees and Surcharges”) in connection with your Service account. Such Taxes, Fees and Surcharges will be included in your Service account charges (a) at the time you order the Service and (b) each time there are any further charges to your Service account. Payment of Taxes, Fees and Surcharges is in addition to payment for the Service and will be billed to your credit card.
10.1 Recovery Fee. The Recovery Fee is assessed to help recover Mint Mobile’s costs to comply with various federal and state programs, taxes and fees including, but not limited to, (i) state and federal Telecommunications Relay Service Programs, (ii) Federal Universal Service Fund Program, (iii) international, federal, state, municipal, local and/or other governmental franchise, excise, public utility and other telecommunications taxes, fees and charges now in force or enacted in the future, and (iv) other costs we incur to comply with government regulations and programs, which are not taxes or fees that local, state or federal governments require Mint Mobile to collect.
Mint Mobile Service Plans The Recovery Fee is calculated as a flat, per-plan fee (refer to table below), plus an additional 2.5% of the plan cost which is applied to help recover other administrative fees.

Although added to the overall charge, the Recovery Fee is separate from the cost of Service and the Recovery Fee shall not result in the purchase of any additional Service time. We set the Recovery Fee, and the amount and what the Recovery Fee includes may change without notice.
10.2 Federal Universal Service Fund Fee. The Federal Universal Service Fund Fee is designed to recover Mint Mobile’s contribution to the Federal Universal Service Fund program. The Federal Universal Service Fund Fee is used to fund programs to increase access to advanced telecommunications services for consumers in rural areas at reasonable rates and provides federal program funding. Rate may change as determined by the Federal Communications Commission. The Universal Service Administrative Company (“USAC”) establishes a quarterly contribution factor, and Mint Mobile charges its customers the then-applicable rate charged to Mint Mobile by USAC.
10.3 State Universal Service Fund Fees. The State Universal Service Fund Fee is designed to recover Mint Mobile’s contribution to various state universal service fund programs. The State Universal Service Fund Fee is assessed as a percentage of intrastate revenues, gross revenues, or as a flat rate per line as set forth by the various state, county or municipal jurisdiction. Certain state agencies establish a quarterly, semi-annual or annual contribution factor, and Mint Mobile may choose to charge its customers to recoup the state universal service fund fees charged to Mint Mobile.
10.4 Sales and Use Taxes. Sales and use taxes are assessed to allow Mint Mobile to recover the cost of all federal, state, municipal, local or other governmental sales and use taxes now in force or enacted in the future, that arise as a result of your subscription to, use of, or payment for Mint Mobile Service. To determine sales and use taxes, we will use the street address on file. If a credit card address is not on file, then we will use the ZIP code you entered upon activation of the Service. If activation ZIP code does not exist, then we will default to the ZIP code of Mint Mobile’s headquarters: 92626. The address on file for Puerto Rico customers must be in Puerto Rico. If you did not identify the correct address, or if you provided an address (such as a PO box) that is not a recognized street address, does not identify the applicable taxing jurisdictions or does not reflect the Service area associated with your telephone number, you may be assigned the above described ZIP code for tax purposes. In the event of a disputed tax jurisdiction location being assigned, any tax refund must be requested within sixty (60) days of our notification to you that the tax has been assessed.
10.5 9-1-1 Fees. Each state, city, municipality, or county has specific charges that are levied for access to 9-1-1. Determination of the applicable 9-1-1 charges depends on where you purchase Mint Mobile Service. Mint Mobile may bill its customers for 9-1-1 charges. Any such 9-1-1 charges are a monthly recurring charge assessed on a per line basis and will appear on your monthly or multi-month receipt.
