Mint Mobile is changing the wireless service game with its no contract plans that you pay for up front. If you're thinking of signing up but aren't sure about coverage or even whether or not your phone will work on the network, then Mint Mobile has the perfect tool to help you figure it out.
The Mint Mobile app is available for Android and it'll let you check out the coverage map for your area. It'll also let you know if your phone is compatible (it probably is!). If you like what you see, then you can order a test kit that comes with two SIM cards for $5. One SIM is a test SIM, which gives you 100 texts, 100MB of data, and 60 minutes to make calls, zoom along on Mint Mobile's fast LTE network, and text everyone about you're testing out Mint Mobile and they should too. The Mint Mobile app will tell you how much of each you have left.
If you dig the experience and want to sign up for a Mint Mobile plan, then you can easily activate the second SIM card. The $5 you paid for the test kit converts into a credit toward the plan of your choice!
Mint Mobile has affordable and flexible plans to suit your usage habits and needs. Sign up for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months, and choose from 2GB of 4G LTE data/month, 5GB/month, or 10GB/month. All plans include unlimited talk, text, and 2G data!
If you're considering Mint Mobile but aren't certain it's the right decision for you yet, download the app and order the test kit. Try the service, and then just activate the second SIM on the plan of your choice. Easy peasy! Need more convincing? Read our extensive review.
