Anyone have this service? Mint

I have had Straight Talk for many years, but this is a great deal motivating enough to jump ship.

Straight Talk TOS prohibit tethering, Mint SIM says you can use your Mint phone as a hotspot.

I would opt for the $25(!) per month package which includes 10 gig of 4g service per 30 days.

I have been using mint sim on an unlocked Samsung handset now for several months and give it 5 Stars.

It is on the T-Mobile network and if you have coverage on that network it will work for you.

I have had no issues with it whatsoever.

I've been tempted to switch to them for a multitude of reasons. Their business model is great.

However as others have said, the TMobile network isn't so robust out in the boonies.

i live about 2 miles from t mobile HQ. i had t mobile for a little while and even at home the service was spotty. moved to ATT via ST and its been 100% .

If Mint was on ATT i would jump on it right away.

Neither T-Mobile nor Sprint are good out in the boonies. But if T-Mobile works where you need it then mint sim is a great option at this time. Generous data for a great price. Data plans get more competitive as the years pass, but some MVNOs (cellular resellers) do not reduce their prices accordingly. I can point a finger at Ting right now. They were a good deal a few years ago but they still charge me over $40 a month for one line using < 500 minutes talk, < 500 texts, and < 1 GB data on Sprint. That is a rip off these days.
