How much is your phone bill every month? It's likely at least $70 per month, if you only have one line. And likely well over a hundred bucks if you have more than one line. What if I told you, that you could get the same service, for as little as $15 per month? Well you can, with Mint Mobile.
Mint Mobile is an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) which works on the T-Mobile network. Think of Metro by T-Mobile, or even Boost Mobile, which run on T-Mobile and Sprint's networks, respectively. It's basically a prepaid carrier, but not one that is owned by T-Mobile. That means that Mint Mobile is able to charge a lot less for its service than T-Mobile.
How much less? For $15 per month, you can get unlimited talk and text, with 3GB of high-speed data. After you've hit that 3GB threshold, your data will be slowed, but it is technically unlimited. That means no bloody overage charges. If you need a bit more data, you can get 8GB for $20 per month, or 12GB for $25 per month. Both of those plans are incredible deals, especially compared to what AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon are currently offering.
Now's the time you've been waiting for, the caveat. You knew there would be one. But fortunately, this one is not a deal-breaker. So, you don't pay every month for Mint Mobile, you buy a three-month pass. So instead of paying $15 for your first bill, it's $45. But you aren't paying month, instead you are paying quarterly. So you're not spending more money, you're just paying Mint Mobile less times throughout the year. Which isn't too bad.
Coverage with Mint Mobile isn't an issue, as it does run on T-Mobile's network, which means that everywhere T-Mobile has service, so does Mint Mobile. T-Mobile doesn't have the absolute best coverage, but it has drastically improved in the last few years. So everyone should be good to go with Mint Mobile's coverage.
Now when it comes to smartphones, things do get a bit tricky. Since Mint Mobile does run on T-Mobile's network, most unlocked phones will work. But you will want to double check the bands, to make sure they work with T-Mobile's network. If yours doesn't work with Mint Mobile - and it has a tool on its website to help you check to make sure it works on its network - they do have a number of phones that you can buy. This includes the latest iPhones, Samsung's Galaxy S10 lineup, Google Pixel 3, 3XL, Pixel 3a, Galaxy Note9, Galaxy Note8, Moto Z3 Play and many others. So there's definitely a number of phones to choose from.
Mint Mobile is perhaps the best deal in wireless right now. If you're looking for a cheaper carrier, Mint Mobile is definitely worth looking at. While the $15 plan is a bit on the light side, with just 3GB of data, the $20 plan is likely going to be perfect for everyone with 8GB of data. Mint Mobile does say that the majority of users use less than 5.6GB of data per month.
