Your choice of 3, 8, or 12GB of 4G LTE data each month—no more overpaying for data you don't use.
Some carriers charge for this. We think that's lame. Ours is included free and comes in selectable standard, micro and nano sizes.
Yup, we're coast to coast on the nation's fastest, most-advanced network (i.e. it's legit).
Is it hot in here, or is it just us? Oh, it's both because we let you turn your device into a WiFi hotspot.

All of our full plans and Starter Kits feature a 7-Day Money Back Guarantee for all purchases made on mintmobile.com or using the app. You can cancel your service for any reason within 7 days of activation and we will refund you 100% of the purchase price, including any fees and taxes. Shipping is not refunded.
Got an unused SIM card? We’ll honor returns for these within 10 days of purchase. It must be returned in its original unopened packaging and the SIM card must not be activated (condition counts—we aren’t called Mint for nothing).
Per month, baby! So stream away—it comes back. For example, if you buy a 12-Month, 12GB Mint plan, you will get 12GB of 4G LTE data (with unlimited data at lower speeds) each month, for the 12 months. Any unused data does not roll over, though. It resets at the end of your data cycle.
After you have tried our service and know what data plan is right for you, then you can choose the length of plan depending on how clever you want to get; 3, 6 or 12 months.
Mint Tip: You can lock in our introductory 3-month pricing by renewing for 12 months.

At Mint, we don’t hide our fees in our plans—we break them out so you know exactly what you are paying.
Subtotal: Cost of the plan chosen.
Regulatory Recovery Fee: The Regulatory Recovery Fee is assessed to help recover Mint Mobile’s administrative costs to comply with various federal and state programs. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for additional details.
Telecom Tax: This includes any federal, state, county, city, or district taxes that are applicable to the retail sale of prepaid wireless communications services in your zip code.
Shipping & Handling: Depends on shipping option chosen at checkout.
NY PSCS: The Public Safety Communications Surcharge is a state-imposed surcharge collected on the retail sale of prepaid wireless communications services in the state of New York.
CA MTS Surcharge: Between 1/1/2016 and 12/31/2018, the Prepaid Mobile Telephony Services (MTS) Surcharge was collected from California-based consumers on the purchase of prepaid wireless service. It included a combination of certain taxes, fees, and other surcharges, as mandated by the state of California. Effective 1/1/2019, it is no longer applicable. Please go to https://www.mintmobile.com/ca-mts/ for more info on the replacement of the Prepaid MTS Surcharge.
If the phone is still locked, it will not be able to be used on other services. If unlocked, it can be used on any service with compliant hardware (eg. some devices are GSM or CDMA only).
Short answer: You choose.
Long answer: All Mint Mobile plans allow you to choose how much 4G LTE data you need each month—3GB, 8GB or 12GB. When you hit this limit, we don’t cut you off, we just slow it down. If you need more data, then you can do a one-time data purchase of either 1GB or 3GB on the UpData section of your account. Or if you find you are hitting the limit each month, simply upgrade your plan to the next data level at any time.

Yep. You you can upgrade your 4G LTE data size mid-cycle by paying the difference between your current plan and the upgraded plan. You are also able to set the change to occur when your current plan ends. You cannot switch down data mid-cycle, though.
Yep. All plans include the Mobile Hotspot feature at no extra charge. The data you use just pulls from your monthly 4G LTE amount. All you need is a hotspot capable phone.
True story: the most common fix for issues with data connection, text messages and domestic and international calling is simply turning your phone off and then back on.
You can also try removing and reinserting your Mint Mobile SIM Card. This essentially re-registers your phone in the mobile network. This will help you with problems related to data connection, text messages and domestic and international calling.
If you continue to experience issues, call customer support at 800-683-7392 or chat with us at mintmobile.com/chat.
On iPhones: Your voicemails won’t immediately appear in your Visual Voicemail screen, even if you currently have messages in your inbox. They will appear once you get a new message, so we recommend you leave yourself a voicemail message after updating your Carrier Settings. Tell yourself how stoked you are about your new savings!
On Androids: To access your voicemail, press and hold the number 1 on your phone’s keypad, or dial 805-637-7456. To reset your voicemail password, type #PWD# on your keypad and hit “Send.” To record a greeting that doesn’t make you want to cringe, you’re on your own. Certain Android users can leverage native visual voicemail on their device.
For non-native-VVM Android devices, we recommend you download a third-party app.

If you’re still not sure if your phone will work with Mint Mobile, visit willmyphonework.net. Once there, enter your phone’s brand and model, U.S. for country and, under “Carrier,” choose our partner company, Ultra Mobile. (This, however, does not guarantee if the device is unlocked or that the phone will work with our service).
The IMEI is the serial number that uniquely identifies your mobile phone. In the event that your phone is lost or stolen, reporting the IMEI will completely block service to the phone. To access your phone’s IMEI for your own personal records, please dial *#06# on your phone’s keypad. The IMEI will be displayed on the screen.
If you’re on a prepaid or pay-as-you-go plan, your phone is probably unlocked; however, if you’re on a two-year contract or something similar, your phone is probably carrier-locked until you finish paying it off.
The most reliable way to determine whether or not your phone is unlocked is by calling your current carrier and asking them to verify your phone’s status. You will most likely need to provide your account password (if applicable) and your phone’s IMEI number. You can find this on most phones by dialing *#06# on your keypad.
Phones need to be unlocked prior to activating your Mint Mobile service.

If your phone is GSM and accepts a SIM card, then your phone is most likely unlocked. If you want to double check, try contacting your current carrier to check if your phone is unlocked.

Echoing other reviewers, our experience with MintMobile has been excellent. We switched from Republic Wireless during MintMobile's promo, and we have had no issues (so about 3 months of use as of now)! My wife and I both have unlocked phones (iPhone SE for her and Moto G4 Plus for me), and setting things up with MintMobile was no sweat. As noted by other reviewers, MintMobile doesn't do any hand holding on setting up your tech, but their website has all o f the explanations you need to get rolling. And once you do, you'll be super thankful that they are helping you save a boat load on your wireless service. Thanks, MintMobile!
I get the same quality of service from one of the big cell phone companies at a fraction of the cost. Set-up was super-easy and any questions I've asked the company have been answered quickly and courteously. No complaints, happy customer!
I love Mint Mobile. I am from Canada and in Arizona for the winter months and needed some cell service. After doing a lot of research I found Mint Mobile to be the best and most economic service. I love their fun website with great information and videos on how to get my cell phone set up and use their service. The service in my area (Tucson) is just great and I have not had any troubles at all. I will definitely use this service every year that I come to the United Sates. Thanks Mint Mobile!
