Cell phone carrier reviews in Altoona
Great if you're on a low-budget
During the pandemic, I lost my job and had to take a position that pays significantly less, making budget cuts essential. Thankfully, a friend recommended Red Pocket to me, which has been a amazing for my finances. I was able to secure their essential plan for a little over $8 a month which has freed up much-needed funds, allowing me to focus on other important expenses.
Reliable coverage and fantastic price
The cost is fantastic and the coverage is generally reliable. However, I do lose signal in any mountainous areas, so that's the only reason I'm rating it four stars instead of a perfect five.
Low priced data plans and great customer service
I switched to US Mobile after facing customer service issues with Google Fi, where I was regularly paying over $30 a month despite using minimal data. I had previously tried out other services, but was met with terrible customer service or rubbish service quality. Taking advantage of US Mobile's 100-day free trial, I was impressed enough to opt for their pooled plan. My single line cost me $9, with an additional $0.48 in fees and $2 per GB of data. So, my total monthly bill came to just $11….48. If I ever ran low on data, topping up was an easy $2 per GB.
Being forced to upgrade made me switch
After my previous service provider insisted that I needed to upgrade my phone to remain compatible with their updated network, I switched to Mint Mobile instead. The move saved me over $300 within the first quarter. Not only is the phone service excellent with Mint, but my download speeds are much faster.
Great value for money
With Mint Mobile, the value exceeds the cost! While it's true that reception can be somewhat inconsistent in rural areas, the significant savings compared to the major carriers more than make up for it. Plus, the setup process is incredibly simple!
Good value for money
Amazing price, good call quality and service. No complaints from me!
The price is unbeatable, although there's room for improvement in coverage. That said, it's not a knock on Mint Mobile's service specifically, as even Verizon in my area faces the same connectivity issues in remote areas. Overall, enhanced coverage would just be a nice bonus.
Cheap and customizable to your needs
I highly recommend giving this company a shot. They offer plans that can be customized to fit your budget and needs, making them a fantastic choice.
Old carrier tried to charge me for 5G
While there's a fair amount of negative chatter about Mint Mobile, my personal experience has been overwhelmingly positive. The service has saved me more than $360 annually, and not only is the coverage superior, but my phone now also supports 5G. With my previous carrier, they insisted I buy one of their 5G-compatible phones to access this feature, which I found ridiculous.
Replacement Sim never arrived
I lost my phone, so I requested a replacement Sim from Mint Customer Service. They said it will take 2-3 business days to receive it. It was 1,5 months ago and I haven’t received it. I called them two weeks ago and they promised that this time I will receive it in 2-3 business days. I even got a ticket number: TECOPSJSD-247081. I still haven’t received my Sim card and CS doesn’t respond to my phone calls so from my part I will simply go to another Phone Company and leave here on the net as… many bad reviews to Mint Mobile as many I can. They have one of the worst Customer Service I have ever experienced.
