Why should I choose Mint Mobile instead of another carrier?

Mint Mobile provides the best value for students, offering affordable plans that include unlimited nationwide talk and text and generous amounts of 4G LTE data. Mint Mobile also recognizes that international students have unique needs, and therefore, allows students to sign up without a SSN or U.S. bank account, doesn't require a contract, and allows you to activate your SIM once you get to the U.S. so you're billing cycle starts only when you're ready to use the service.
