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.
