Mint Mobile Cell Phone Plans
Mint Mobile (previously Mint SIM) cell phone plans work a little differently to most other plans. Instead of the traditional 30-day or 1-month plans, Mint Mobile offers 3-, 6-, and 12-month plans. Although you'll have to pay for more months in advance, Mint's pricing is so cheap, you'll wonder why you didn't choose Mint sooner.
Mint Mobile offers special introductory pricing for new customers and also offers a 7-day money back guarantee, so you can try it out first without a full commitment. Another benefit to Mint Mobile is that all of the transactions are done online, so you don't need to make your way to a Mint Mobile store or call a salesperson to buy your plan. Simply choose your plan, add it to your online cart, and complete the transaction.
Mint Mobile Cell Phones
There is a good selection of Mint Mobile phones available, from the simpler (and cheaper) ZTE and Alcatel phones, to the newest Apple and Samsung Galaxy phones. Mint Mobile offers two options when it comes to buying a phone—buy it outright or buy it through monthly payments. If you can afford to buy the phone outright, that's your best option, as buying it through monthly payments could mean you're paying interest (aka paying more than the phone is worth).
If you prefer to bring your own phone (BYOP) to Mint Mobile, that's also an option. Simply make sure your phone is compatible and unlocked and choose the right Mint Mobile plan for you.

About Mint Mobile
Mint Mobile (former Mint SIM), a subsidiary of Ultra Mobile, is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). Launched by its parent company in 2016, Mint Mobile has no storefronts and functions primarily online. With an entirely digital footprint the company claims it can transfer savings, from not up-keeping buildings and storefronts, to its customers. These savings plus the fact that Mint Mobile operates on T-Mobile’s trusted network make the MVNO an attractive option for anyone shopping for cell phone service.
Mint Mobile sells their prepaid plans in blocks of 3, 6, or 12 months. Purchasing the longer plans will result in paying less per month than the shorter plans. Mint does not offer an unlimited data plan, but all their plans come with unlimited nationwide talk and text.
High-end phones from manufacturers like Apple and Samsung are available for purchase through Mint Mobile. Customers who can’t pay the large upfront costs of a new iPhone or Samsung Galaxy can apply to finance their phone through Mint’s partnership with Affirm. If you have a GSM-compatible phone you can bring your phone to Mint and the carrier will gladly provide you with a SIM and instruct you through the simple activation process.
