I activated my mint mobile after 80 days of purchase and I still got the 12 months.

I got an email from Mint nudging me to activate my sim card because after 30 days it becomes inactive. This is from the Infrequent Questions dropdown on the landing site:

When does my Mint service start?

Your Mint service starts from the time that you activate your plan. Mint Mobile SIM cards can be activated up to 45 days after you receive your SIM.

Does anyone have any experience with the SIM card becoming inactive after 30 days?

According to SD comments on this specific question, the SIM card expires only after 2 years. However the 6 for 12 deal expires if not activated within 45 days. So if you activate after 45 days you only get 6 months.

Let me add some specifics because that is what differs from the posted information:

We noticed you purchased your Mint Mobile plan on 3/20/2023, but haven’t activated it yet. So, this is an official (gentle) reminder to activate your plan because your SIM card actually becomes inactive in 30 days. And nobody wants that.

I can confirm that if you do not activate within 30 days of the order the SIM still works but the free plan offer reverts to the usual 7-day trial. Tried today, just in case I might use another number but I procrastinated for too long, not that it matters much to me. The phone works pretty well though, happy with the purchase so far.

Does that mean you lost your prepaid year or 6 mos of service w/o porting a number?? You’re just adding the extra $90 to the overall cost of the phone?

Do you think that the prepaid time will be after the 7-day trial?

Yeah, pretty much. I think it means that the welcome offer of free 6 mo. or whatever is valid only for 30 days. I was not gonna use Mint anyway, so I do not care too much but for some people it might be important.

pprogram I’d like to apologize for misinformation. Seems like I used the second “giveaway” sim, instead of the one that came with the 4GB plan. Just tried that one, it is still active about 5 weeks after my order. I was offered the 4B 12 mo. plan with number transfer that I plan to use with a backup phone, just in case I might need it.

Can someone give an anecdote on what happened when you did not port in a number? I’m having a hell of a hard time porting a number, and am wondering what would happen if I simply just didn’t port in a number and used a new number they give you. I’ve already registered and received a temp number that I can use “while my number is porting” but what would happen if I left it like that indefinitely? Would they charge me the full amount of the plan and/or the phone?

Amazon is selling unlocked P7’s for $449. Combined with the flood of P7’s on Ebay, marketplace, etc, this would not be a good time to resell these.

Best Buy has been selling it for like $350 a fe days ago, so yeah I am not sure about resale.

Interestingly, the AMEX offer gets triggered for the 2x amount. The AMEX offer is $15 off $115 two times. With this purchase well over $230 (2x$115) i was given the full $30 credit!

Did anyone get biz wireless credit by prepaying using the wallet feature? the $10 monthly credit?

Lauren (@guest_1586834)
March 28, 2023 16:22

Yes I do this every month. It charges 10.50 due to some recovery credit.

Can you explain further? Can someone who signed up for this offer expect to pay an additional $10.50 monthly fee on top of the $289 + tax we already paid?

Ordered a 12 month unlimited on 3/23, checked order status today and it said “no information available” or some such. Never received a tracking number but did receive a email receipt immediately after purchase. Called today to inquire about status and first rep said the order was placed today. I reiterated I made a purchase last week and the call was “escalated.” After many minutes on hold, the new rep also said the order was placed today and to wait a couple days for the status to update. Not very encouraging….

Mine shipped a couple of days after the order.
