You can go from any service provider to Mint Mobile. Whether you are going to Mint Mobile for your first ever service provider, or your 5th provider, they welcome all and at a pretty great cost. They also offer discounts and intro rates to entice you to try out their service.
Discounts and Promotions
When you sign up for Mint Mobile, you can get introductory pricing. This means that you can purchase one of the 3-month plans for a 12-month price. So, if you bought 3 months of unlimited talk and text, with 8GB of data each month, for $20 a month ($60 total) then you would get another 3 months free. So, you’re getting 6 months for $60 (that’s $10 a month)!
You can also get intro pricing when you switch to Mint Mobile. You can buy 3 months of service with unlimited talk and text with three different sizes of data packages: 3GB, 8GB, and 12GB. You can get 3GB of data for $15 a month. You can get 8GB of data for $20 a month, or 12GB for $25 a month.
The more you buy at once, the more of a discount you get. For example, you can buy 3 months of 3GB data for $25 month. Whereas you could get 12 months of 3GB of data for $15 a month.
Bring (or buy) Your Own Phone
Mint Mobile offers the options of either keeping your own phone that you have now, or buying a new one through their website (mintmobile.com). When you have your own phone, you can bring it to Mint Mobile service if it is compatible.
You can check the compatibility of your phone by texting *#06#* to get what is called an IMEI number. You can take that IMEI number and put it into the website here to see if your phone is compatible with Mint Mobile coverage.
If your phone isn’t compatible with Mint Mobile coverage then you can buy a new phone here. They even offer the newest phones out (such as the iPhone Max 11 Pro). You can buy outright or finance through a partner of Mint Mobile.
Activating the Starter Kit
Once you’ve checked the discount and promotions and decided on a phone to use then you are able to get a starter kit. You can buy the Mint Mobile $5 starter kit on their website, Amazon, Target, and more.
You will take the SIM card that comes in the kit and get the size that you need for your phone. The kit comes with a SIM card that can be changed into three sizes, so it is bound to fit almost all phones.
Now you’re ready to move forward with your new Mint Mobile coverage and service.
