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 • 5G 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.
