Mint Mobile was founded in August of 2016 as a subsidiary company owned by Ultra Mobile. At first, the company was known as Mint SIM, and it was set up as an online MVNO whose strong suit was selling prepaid cell phone plans using T-Mobile’s network.
The company spun off from Ultra Mobile in October of 2019, and took on their new name – Mint Mobile LLC. After the separation, Mint Mobile started rising much faster in popularity, and even attracted Ryan Reynolds to buy a stake in the company.
What sets Mint Mobile apart from the competition is its budget-friendly cell phone service. It features high discounts, and targets the younger population to compete against household names in the telecommunications industry.
To continue the trend of providing cost-efficient solutions, Mint Mobile removed any extra charges for switching to 5G. This gives Mint Mobile the edge over some of its other rival networks. For instance, Cricket enables 5G only as a part of its most expensive plan.
The company also allows its customers to use any cell phone that’s T-Mobile compatible, provided it’s been paid off and isn’t under a contract. The same goes for most AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint cell phones, as long as you’ve unlocked them. In addition, brands such as Samsung and Motorola also work if unlocked.
Any phone that’s compatible with T-Mobile will also work on Mint Mobile, as long as it is out of contract and paid off in full. Most phones used on either AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon will also work as long as they have been unlocked.
