rumor is mint sims from best buy expire on the date on the package, and not 45days from purchase like sims bought directly from mint.

3gigs @ $8/month is a pretty good deal.
a slick deal was last year's 12gig @ $10/month. hoping for best buy to repeat that deal
I bought the last front page from Mint and the activation on the card said I had until 2022 to activate. Makes sense though because these would be sitting on best buy shelfs for a while until someone bought it unlike directly from mint where they can print it as the order comes in.

Is the expiration date 45 days after purchase or the date printed on the package?
It's 45 days from the date the sim kit is scanned for purchase @ BB. Or wherever. Some of those expiration dates on package are year(s) off. .

I tried to use my SB deal 3 month sim kit after 45 days and the system said it was expired. No difference between getting these from Mint or BB. . .they know

Just left Mint after 15 months. Though lots of nice features, GSM support in my area is very limited (coastal SW Florida). Mint did switch me to Voice over WiFi for the past 3 mos, which improved home reception. However, data and voice dropouts in my neighborhood, stores, and the 5-mile radius I traveled during this pandemic became intolerable. When switching, the Mint agent told me they use the Sprint network, which may be more metropolitan based. Shifted to RedPocket CDMA on my 6s, and even at home I am getting at least 2 bars solid, and it discloses Verizon network. I left RedPocket 15 mos ago because they did not support MMS on their GSM plan. FWIW, Mint customer service was great, and I could always get someone on the phone in a minute or two. On the other hand, I had to wait on hold for nearly 10 mins yesterday to reach a RedPocket CSR to help fine-tune my new account. Hope this is helpful.
Red Pocket online chat is the way to go. That way you can save all communication for your records.

The date on the back has nothing to do with how long you can wait to activate the card. It's for merchandising purposes. It's 45 days from purchase date. when the kit is scanned for purchase.

I ported my main cellphone number to Google Voice. I can get calls to that GV number whenever I have wifi, even without a SIM card. When you are outside, the GV app will use your data plan to make/receive calls - that's when you will need a SIM card. I don't actually use the MINT Sim phone number, since I only use my GV main number through the GV app. (You use the SIM card phone number through the default Phone app).

There is a drawback which is privacy, with google having too much of my data. That's the tradeoff.
What if my plan ended and out of service. Will Google Voice still be receiving calls?

Why take the family to Tmobile. You can pay $30 a month for unlimited.
$30 for unlimited? Through mint? Why would i pay more for something i don't need? Like i said in the post you quoted. I tried the service. It's subpar. I don't need unlimited. And what's the point of unlimited if the service doesn't even work. It's slower than T-Mobile and sometimes doesn't even load or connect. No one goes over allocation. T-Mobile lets me roam internationally for free abet at 2G speeds but it works. Connected at LTE but throttled. But I have data during travels.

Yup. Google voice is just an app and your GV phone number is tied to your google account. As long as you have wifi, you can use the GV phone number to place/receive calls. To use it outside the house without wifi, you'll need a data plan from a SIM card. Doesn't matter which provider or what phone number is associated with that SIM card.

Im just not sure how it can be possible. Cause I would asume calls are being redirected through the carrier to GV. But if the line is not active and out of service (i.e. no calls or texts can be received to this number), how calls or texts are going to be redirected to GV?

Let's say your main cellphone number is with T-mobile now. You port this T-mobile number into Google Voice. So your number is no longer associated with any SIM card, rather it becomes virtual, associated with your Google Voice account. It will ring anywhere you have Google Voice open, including on your phone app, or even on your computer you can receive place call too. It's all virtual now. If you don't install the GV app on your phone, then of course you will not receive any calls placed to that GV number. Everything goes through the app.

There is no need to forward a SIM card number to GV once it's ported over.

One time I bought mint sim and they were blowing me up with emails as my 45 days approached. I am pretty sure I went over the 45 days and it still worked without a problem. Could be a sham expiration but not risking it to stock up.
