Mint Mobile's Starter Kit Now Costs Nothing to Buy

mint-mobile-starter-kit-free
And just like that, Mint Mobile is already two years old. Ever since the company started, it has already more than tripled their active subscriber base year over year-- a clear indication of their rapid growth.

The online-only business model has managed to break industry standards with its lowest $15 per month plan that comes with 2GB of 4G LTE per month. This plan remains unmatched to this day by Big Wireless carriers. Additionally, Mint Mobile has helped its customers to save an average of 50% on their current monthly bill as compared with these carriers.

In line with its two-year celebration, the Ultra Mobile-owned MVNO is giving individuals a better way to experience the service they provide through their Starter Kits. Prior to today's celebration, these Starter Kits cost $5 to purchase and use for a test run. The T-Mobile MVNO has announced these Starter Kits to be available for free.

Mint Mobile's Starter Kit comes with a 7-day, risk-free service. If you decide to test out their service, you can enjoy using your SIM card with 100 minutes of talk, 100 text messages, and 100MB of 4G LTE data for a total of 7 days. This Starter Kit allows you to test out whether Mint Mobile's service is compatible with your area and needs before making a commitment and paying anything. If you don't believe it is a match, you can request a refund.

If you make a decision to switch to Mint Mobile, however, you can choose from one of the three plans offered by the MVNO. These plans include:


  • $15 per month plan - Includes 2GB of high-speed 4G LTE data
  • $20 per month plan - Includes 5GB of high-speed 4G LTE data
  • $25 per month plan - Includes 10GB of high-speed 4G LTE data

All plans include unlimited talk and text. 

If you are ready to receive your free Starter Kit, you may visit Mint Mobile's website to make a request.

  1. The starter kit appears to "cost nothing" in the sense that the $5 cost is refundable on request. (At least from a view of the order page just now.)

  2. These rates mentioned here are intro rates, if you purchase for three months. After that the rates are high if you pay month to month.

  3. FWIW: the kit actually seems to cost $5, but you can ask for your $5 back.

    Not exactly meeting my definition of free.

    Possibly of use to establish a new phone # cheaply, for further MVNO deals.

  4. Little additional info...
    In order to get the best price you need to prepay for 3, 6 or 12 months.
    If you choose the $20 for 5gig you'll pay $20 per month for the first 3 months (you have to buy them up front $60) Then you can re-up for 3, 6 or 12 months you have to re-up for 12 months to get the $20 per month deal. $240 up front, a little more in Cal. Still not a bad deal.

  5. Also, for some reason WIFI calling is not available with the iPhone, Android only. Which is strange because it's included with T Mo service for all.

    1. Not all that strange once you understand how Apple operates.

    2. I could never get WiFi calling to work on mint, even after registration where as the same phone wifi calling worked on straight talk with a TMobile sim, no biggie though I didn't really need it.

    3. iPhones are in ways several years out-of-date.

  6. Beware of Mint's fees!

  7. Junk promotion from a junk MVNO. They all seem to believe they are all going to get the world to beat a path to their door, until one by one, they all cave to reality.

  8. Eh, it's a good starter MVNO.

    But at the end of the day, everyone always comes home to Big Red.

    Coverage and speeds just aren't up to par on any other carrier, not even Big Blue.

    1. You are right! But if I was paying Fat Red many more $ than blue, I'd expect better coverage.

    2. Everyone comes back to Big Red? Well it happened to me last month. I was on T-Mobile, and suddenly T-Mobile decided to cut the coverage in half. I was left drowning without even the benefit of a magenta T-Mobile life preserver ring given to me on T-Mobile Tuesday.

      I bit the bullet and decided that in order to get something Superior I had to pay a superior pile of cash. And now I'm with Verizon. And not only do I have a lot better coverage in T-Mobile, it's typically 10 times faster than T-Mobile as well.

    3. A good starter mvno? Yes, good for turning people away from the idea of going with such mom and pop operations.

  9. Prepaying several months upfront is a bad idea. SOunds to much on a ponzi scheme. Great until you are the last one holding onto the service.

    1. Pre paying more than one month with one of these mom-and-pop mvno outfits is extremely foolish. Look at what happened to
      Rok Mobile. These guys will cut and run in a moment's notice

    2. It's OK to buy in bulk at COSTCO and SAM's Club to save money, right? Even though some of the food may spoil.....
      No lectures, please. Risk vs. reward. Only a tiny percentage of these transactions will turn out to be a bad gamble. Of course, those are the only ones you remember.
