    After paying for 12 months service terrible

    After buying 12 months plan the service went down the toilet. Terrible coverage, practically no Internet Data

    I switched from Verizon to Mint.

    Verizon tried to make it hard but the Mint rep included me in 3 party calls. They called back almost instantly. I switched phones and kept number at the same time. Bought an unlocked iPhone at Best Buy and in 2-3 hours I was on a new phone and went from CDMA to GSM network (AT&T - T-Mobile network) it was time well spent. I don’t use much data so I pay $180 per year for 4GB per month and don’t need to worry about monthly bills or anything. There is 1 spot in a high density area near where I live that speeds are slow some days. I’ve traveled to NV and ID and streamed music all the way. Made and received calls and texts, used maps. It’s been great. 1 month I almost ran out of data. If that happens you just open their app and pay $10 or get next highest plan. I didn’t have to but it’s no big deal. They also have plans between 4GB and “unlimited. Good prices good coverage. Recommended by me In UT county UT.

    Beware of roaming service!

    Do not purchase roaming credits. Funds added are instantly spent, and when complaining about it, they stonewall and make it your fault. I literally went presumably through a 100MB allowance purchased for $20 within 2-3 minutes, even though I didn't download apps. You're better off purchasing an eSim if such is available in the country you're travelling, but DO NOT PURCHASE MintMobile roaming credits!

    I’ve been pleased so far.

    Are switching from Verizon to Mint Mobile was an easy experience though Verizon tried to make it difficult. Customer service helped me through that mess and everything has been good during this past year. No problems at all. I’m thinking of signing up for another year. One thing that I appreciated was that they alerted me that I was using much less GB than necessary and suggested that I switch to the less expensive plan. I don’t imagine many companies would do that. I hope that the customer service will continue to be good. Other reviews have indicated less than satisfying experiences. I’ll cross my fingers and forge ahead.

    Don’t choose mint mobile

    If you travel and have to use maps on internet, they won’t work because no service. If you have problems while traveling, probably will have to flag someone down and use there phone to call for help. Thanks but no thanks. I have to have a reliable service at all times, not sometimes.

    Works flawlessly!

    Live in Northern NYS. For years I paid for Verizon, feeling like I was wasting a lot of money. I recently went to Mint and so far, I can't tell the difference in quality. Everything's perfect: I get crystal clear calls and I get no lag or buffering watching YouTube and playing games like Genshin Impact.

    AMAZING

    great support and network at affordable prices, wish I knew about mint sooner

    mint to the rescue

    their plans are really good and they use t-mobile so coverage and service are reliable, it's easy to set up and activate, would recommend

    Super affordable

    Bought 3 months' worth of Mint for my mother, who was overpaying on her phone bill. Now instead of paying hundreds on her phone bill, she's paying $45 for 3 months

    A relief in this economy

    With prices getting so high, I'm surprised Mint is charging so little. If you're looking to save tons in these trying times, head to Mint. Their service won't let you down.
