Mint Mobile User Reviews

Not RecommendedNoneSlow 4g speeds

The 4g speeds are so much slower than T-Mobile speeds and the signal is weak a lot of the time.

RecommendedCoverageCustomer service

I'm not a fan of the customer service. I got someone who was rude and impatient like he had a bad day. I don't think I'm going to stay with Mint if customer service is like this all the time.

RecommendedPriceReception, internet speeds

it's just ok. it doesn't always receive phone calls and the internet is a little slow

Not RecommendedNonePoor coverage

The service was not as advertised. I don't even get coverage a good part of the time.

Not RecommendedNonePoor value

Visible gives me unlimited data than Mint Mobile for the same price! Mint Mobile gives you very little. Beware!

RecommendedReliable, priceNone

Easy to install! Great price and service! Data is reliable.

RecommendedStrong serviceNone

My entire family loves this service! It's so clear and there have been no issues for any of us!

RecommendedCustomer servicePoor reception in rural areas

If you're in a good coverage area you'll receive great service. I thought I was fully covered (by checking their coverage map) but I've found a lot of dead spots in my area. I do like the pricing model and they make it easy to switch. They're a good company with helpful customer service but I wish they had better coverage for my area.

RecommendedCheapCustomer service, average coverage

Mint Mobile is pretty average but it's cheap. Some areas I have no coverage and in others I have okay coverage. I just don't use my phone a whole lot so it's good for the basics. Customer service isn't good but it's not the worst.

Not RecommendedNoneCustomer service

I hate the customer service. They lie to you and try to push you to another agent.

RecommendedGood networkSlow internet

The iternet is pretty slow but it works okay otherwise.

RecommendedFast internet, great pricesNone

I'm surprised by Mint Mobile's service! The internet is really fast and there hasn't been any delays or disconnects. It's a great price for what you get!

RecommendedExcellent service and so cheap!They could improve their customer service

I bought it a few months ago and so far it has been great! Was tired of paying high monthly fees for service

RecommendedInexpensivePoor net connection

This is the best deal you can get for phone service but the phone calls are ok. Internet is pretty bad. I can't stream anything with Mint Mobile.

RecommendedWorks as advertised.Nothing so far in the last 3 years

Good low cost plan if you buy annual plan; can't beat unlimited talk/text with 3GB data each month.

Not RecommendedNoneTerrible internet access

Mint Mobile really, really sucks! Surfing the web is a poor experience. Disappointed in the amount of annoyances with this phone. I'm going to be looking for another provider.

RecommendedGood internet, decent coverageNone

I'm glad I switched to Mint Mobile and wished I've done it sooner. I don't know why the bad reviews - I've always had good internet and decent coverage. So much cheaper compared to the other carriers for better results!

RecommendedDecent coveragePayment methods too few

It's a pretty good service but I don't like that you can only pay your bill online.

RecommendedTextingCustomer service

I had the worst experience

Not RecommendedTHERE IS NO BEST THINGALL CALLS go 2 voicemail.15 min 4 message 2 arrive

All promotional bling. No quality. No disclosure of true cost up front. Other carriers disclose fees & taxes.I feel like a dupe. I keep my phone with me at all times 2 check call notifications. I have missed every call I've received for the past 3 months. I have had to use my back up phone. I must have a phone for my work because I take call. Mint Mobile is a sophisticated scam.

Not RecommendedNothingEverything

Absolute sham of a company. They said my phone would work with their network (it didn't), and when I tried the SIM card with another phone, the data would only work when I was in the range of a functional WiFi network. Pretty much defeats the point of having data at all if you can't use your phone outside the house. Tried to resolve it with customer service but nobody answers the phone and their chat reps start the conversation but then say nothing for 20+ minutes. Avoid at all costs. Worst phone provider ever

Not RecommendedNothingService

Got the sim less then a month. Right away, I could NOT get out going phone line. I type the number and nothing’s happens, I have a strong single, but I can’t get a line out. Thank god I don’t need to call 911, cause I can’t get a line. Call them several time and all they do is to tell me to turn off phone anaphylaxis remove SIM card and put it back in and restart the phone. Do they expect me to do this every time I want to make a call.


Not RecommendedNot good anymoreService

Its going down hill fast! I have been using them for the last 2 years but now my Galaxy S7 was deemed incompatible recently due to their "changes". I don't get texts all of the time (same for my wife who uses a Galaxy S5) and my calls will go to voice mail without even ringing the phone.

This has become a disaster.

I have to get another carrier.

You may have a new "compatible" phone but they make changes and don't care if it outdaes your phone. Support answers the phone but they don't understand english very well. You have to repeat your self.....repeatedly.

Not RecommendedA GREAT FRAUD AND SCAMThat they still exist.

THREE DAMAGED SIM CARDS. Then I found out they charged my credit card again for a damaged replacement.

Refund option is a total lie.

I curse this company and it’s employees.

Not RecommendedPriceIt just never worked

I bought a SIM card plus a 3 months/3GB package on Feb 7, 2020. I received the card on Feb 10th and activated the card. However, unable to make calls, I reached costumer service. After determining that I have no coverage for T-Mobile (their carrier) where I live (their website said I would have no issues with that), we decided it was better for me to get a refund. I went into their website, filled in the return data (which says NO QUESTIONS ASKED) and thought that was the end of it.

By April 3rd, I have yet to receive the refund. I have spoken to at least 7 Mint representatives, all of which have been very friendly and understanding, but at the end of the day, the refund has not been deposited in my account. I even received a mail from them, telling me that because I was asking for a refund 45 days after I placed my order, I could not request it. Somebody did not understand that they are the ones that are 45 days late, not me.

In short, I don't know how good their service is, since I never got the SIM card to work. But as far as their refund policy, it does not work. So just know that if you decide to get your money back because you are dissatisfied with the service, you will very likely not get it. Or it will take forever.
