Mint Mobile is one of the most affordable carriers, with plenty of data and 5G data included with a compatible phone.
Mint Mobile is a prepaid carrier operating on T-Mobile’s network that sells its plans in multi-month bundles so you can save money. You can buy three, six, or 12 months at a time. Plans come in 4GB, 10GB, 15GB, or even unlimited and include 5G. If you decide to try out Mint Mobile, porting your number from another carrier is relatively simple and painless. Best of all, it’s free.
Before starting the porting process, it’s important to note that your phone number must remain active on your previous carrier throughout the process. If you cancel your old service before moving to Mint, you likely won’t be able to recover your phone number — at least, not without going through a much more tedious process.
Once you’ve decided on a plan and received your Mint Mobile SIM card, starting the porting process is easy.
You will need a Mint Mobile-compatible phone, such as the Galaxy S20 5G, and a Mint Mobile SIM card.
If you have any questions along the way, you can always call Mint Mobile’s customer service at 800-683-7392 or chat with an agent online. But once the number transfer is complete, you’ll receive a welcome text from Mint confirming your Mint Mobile port number, and in most cases, your existing service will cancel automatically. From here, all that’s left is to enjoy your new service.
