I'm a current Mint customer. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

1a. Coverage is on the native T-Mobile network. There's no domestic roaming, not even for voice/texts. I highly, highly recommend testing out the T-Mobile network before purchase.

1b. Mint (and other MVNOs) are on the lower rungs of network priority. That means deprioritization is going to hit you before it hits Metro or T-Mobile's direct customers. Again, test the network if you can.

2. There's no separate bucket for hotspot. If this is a 10GB plan, you get 10GB combined for phone and hotspot use. What that also means is that they don't slow you down on hotspot, at least until your 10GB is all expended. Not sure what happens to hotspot speeds then, but phone data speed is crippled to something like 128k.

3. Mint comes with access to 5G, VVM, voLTE and WiFi calling. Not sure if you can activate eSIM with this plan, but it is an option Mint is now offering for some phones.

4. Customer service is decent imo. If you have a reddit account, they have a pretty active rep and company brass that posts there.

5. No, they don't check IMEI numbers.

6. There is a limit on the duration of phone calls. Search reddit for it, if you're on long calls and don't want to get disconnected in the middle of one.

7. They offer free text and calls from US to Canada and Mexico. What they don't offer is cheap overseas roaming. It's something like $200/GB.
I was told by mint customer service that all physical SIMs sold at best buy are actually partially activated in terms of the 45 days when they are shipped from Mint to the retailer. Could this possibly be why Best Buy seems to run these promotions every 30-45 days, to clean out stock of their products?

Customer service mentioned that if I had problems activating and I was within 45 days of my receipt Mint customer service would take care of it, with proof of purchase.

I held the last one for 35 days, and had no problem activating it.

It's my opinion and just a guess that some type of expiration date clock starts when the SIM is shipped, notice the packaging of the SIM. The barcode numbers of the SIM card are clearly visible through the backside of the packaging.

Last offer was January 25th, 2021 for the 10 GB, but it seems random as to when and which SIM goes on sale. The 4 GB I've seen down to $20-$25.

I'm debating whether to do GV trick.

How do I get pin to port # to GV? They don't check IMEI right?

Your Mint service starts from the time that you activate your plan. Mint Mobile SIM cards can be activated up to 45 days after you receive your SIM
