Mint Sim launches a cheap BYOD service with bulk pricing

Mint Sim, a sister company to Ultra Mobile, has launched one of the cheapest LTE plans for smartphones that we’ve ever seen. It works slightly differently than what you’re used to, but it’s also literally as cheap as $15 per month. That’s hard to beat.

Mint Sim uses T-Mobile’s network and offers a comprehensive BYOD program, so you’ve got good coverage and flexibility on your phone with no service contract. You simply choose the amount of data you want (2GB, 5GB, or 10GB) then choose whether you want the 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month pricing. You pay for all of it up front, but at the bottom end that comes out to $45 for 2GB of data per month for a quarter of the year. You can also pay for the full year, which ends up being $180 per year.


It’s slightly more expensive to get more data, obviously, and for some reason the 6 month plans are more expensive than the 3 month or 12 month packages, but overall it’s a really great value for anyone shopping around for affordable cellular coverage.

Mint Sim also offers add-ons like extra data in your billing cycle, international roaming, and WiFi calling and texting. They’ve completely axed the physical store front, so you’ll only able to purchase their plans online, but that helps to cut down the price.

Best Buy is one of the first to carry the service on their website, and they’re running a one-time deal that will allow you to save $20 if you buy an unlocked phone with a service bundle up front.

    “For some reason”? The 3-month rates are promos for new customers with the same monthly rate as paying a year at a time. When you set up your account, you can choose what rate you renew to, and the existing-customer plans are cheaper per month the further you pay ahead, as one would expect.
