I’m interested in MintSIM (a T-Mobile MNVO). You get Unlimited Talk, Text, and 2GB of 4G LTE Data for $16.58 a month if you pay a year in advance. Republic Wireless charges $30 for 2GB and $20 for 1GB. Republic Wireless has been great so far, but I’m constantly watching and limiting my data usage.
The only negatives I see with MintSIM is that their customer service is lacking and their talk over WiFi is limited to certain phones.
My question is: Can I easily switch and transfer my number to MintSIM from Republic Wireless?
In the past because Republic Wireless is considered a VOIP carrier, if I wanted to switch to Cricket I would need to transfer to T-Mobile first then to Cricket. Would I need to do that for MintSIM?
I tried asking MintSIM about the number transfer, but they couldn’t give me a concrete answer.
