The Price Was Right

I signed up for Mint Mobile’s Unlimited Talk, Text, and 2GB of High Speed data plan. You can get this plan for as low as $15 per month.

With most prepaid wireless service you pay one month or 30 days in advance for your wireless service. However with Mint you pay three, six, or twee months in advance for your service. The longer you pay in advance for, the bigger discount Mint can offer.
Mint has plans with 3GB, 8GB, or 12GB of high speed data per month. I mostly use Wi-Fi, so 3GB of high speed data per month is enough for me. Mint plans are for people with modest to moderate data use. If you need more than 12GB of data per month, or require unlimited data than you might want to look at other options.

To start out, I signed up for Mint for three months. I bought a starter Kit. The price was $45. That is $15 per month. With taxes and fees the total cost was $50.44. The normal price for three months of service with the 3GB plan is $75, which is $25 per month. However Mint has an introductory offer where you get their best discount on your first three months. When I renew my plan in three months, I’ll need to pay for the 12 month option to maintain the $15 per month price.

Network Service

Mint Mobile uses the T-Mobile network. The T-Mobile network has very good coverage where I use my phone in the Metro Boston area. Over the last 9 years, T-Mobile has vastly improved their network. The coverage and speed rivals AT&T and Verizon in my area. If the T-Mobile netork has coverage in your area, Mint could be a choice for you.

The Features I Want

Mint Mobile also offers the features I want: Wi-Fi Calling, Mobile Hotspot, and Visual Voicemail. These are the three features most consumers I heart from want.

a $244 Savings

Previously, I used Verizon Wireless Prepaid. The Service was good. I was on a plan that had 3GB of data plus 3GB of bonus data for total of 6GB of Data. I was paying $37.15 per month. But I was paying for data I don’t use. By switching to Mint, I will save $244 per year. Granted, I’ll have 3GB less data per month, but I wan’t using that data so it didn’t need that data anyway. Verizon’s Prepaid Service was excellent. I’d recommend it to anyone that wants or needs a service that uses the Verizon network.
