Here's a thought to maximize coverage (assume AT&T coverage is better than T-Mo in your area)...

Dual SIM Phone
SIM 1 FreeUP for voice
SIM 2 Mint for 5GB LTE data that also allows tethering

At $3.36 for a months (after free shipping code and eBates), you can't beat this.

I am not seeing the $20 cash back on ebates currently, very surprised, plus wanting to get one more. hehe

I was betting on either Christmas or New Year's Eve return.

Guess there was no "another $20 cash back" deal.

I was keeping eyes open, too. I don't need another Mint line, but another $20 cashback offer would have let me extend my Mint access date by 45 days...... at roughly $14 to do so (with $10 cashback), I decided I'd be smarter to put the money towards a line that was sustainable at around $10/mo.

I'm going to have a little fun with the Mint plan this weekend-- a road trip to an area that has marginal coverage from everyone except U.S. Cellular. We're taking Mint (T-Mo), FreedomPop (AT&T), Tracfone (VZW), and Sprint, and seeing which works. I probably won't be able to prowl the countryside looking for dead spots, though.

I bought two of of the $20 promotional SIMs on Dec. 31 and plan to activate them on Feb 1.
There’s a chance (unlikely, but possible) that I may receive 8 GBs per month, given the following development:

I got an email from Mint letting me know about the upcoming data increase on their plans. It included this:
"What does this mean for you?
After January 29th, your current plan will automatically go from 5GB to 8GB on it's next monthly reset at NO charge."

Nice.

As stated in their press releases, Mint Mobile started their increased data packages today ( e.g. 8GB of data@ $20 per month)

This is one solid and classy company that deserves to do well. Their commitment to every day value is heads and shoulders above the competition. And their marketing approach is clever and fun.

My entire family is now on Mint Mobile.

I'm sure most of you are aware that Mint Mobile is owned by Ultra Mobile.

Here's a profile of the CEO from two years ago. ( I like this guy)

Correction, cannot use IRFREESHIP because you have to enter CHUNKYTWEET to get the $20 price... so $18.36 total (after eBates $10 cash back) then...

So, if still 45 day activation limit, that would mean activating this SIM on the ides of March.
