Wholesale wireless service provider Mint SIM recently changed its name to Mint Mobile. The company wanted to take the focus off the medium of its service, a SIM card, in favor of letting the “Mint” part do all the talking, giving a fresh spin on how to purchase mobile service.

If you aren’t familiar with the prepaid carrier, owned by Ultra Mobile, it’s a bring-your-own-device operation that accepts most GSM phones and runs on T-Mobile’s network. It offers 3-, 6- and 12-month packages featuring unlimited talk, text and data with a variable bucket of data at LTE speeds, depending on the tier.

The longer the terms, the more cost-efficient the rates get, but it’s all paid in a lump sum, up front.

Term 2GB/mo. 5GB/mo. 10GB/mo.
3 months $69 ($23/mo.) $90 ($30/mo.) $124 ($38/mo.)
6 months $108 ($18/mo.) $144 ($24/mo.) $180 ($30/mo.)
12 months $180 ($15/mo.) $240 ($20/mo.) $360 ($30/mo.)

Those who want to try a three-month plan for the first time will will pay just $45 for 2GB, $60 for 5GB and $75 for 10GB on their first term. There are also add-ons like additional high-speed data and international roaming available to customers on a month-to-month basis.

The company is pulling off this rebadging as Sprint and T-Mobile prepare to merge — as the two have a combined majority control of the prepaid market, there may be some major consequences incoming if regulators set conditions for the transaction.
