Hi EZ, I can confirm that at least in my experience my phone showed "Mint" before activation and when I tried to make an outbound call I got an automated response. After activation voice and text worked but data required a reboot and mms still doesn't work but I use GV over data so I haven't bothered to do any detective work on the mms problem. I think it is very kind to pass it along to someone who can use it especially if you don't have native T-Mobile coverage.

I think that with the 3 months free deal that it is better given to someone who has more signal where they are & without having activated it so that they can get the full 3 months out of it.

I think Et_Z has the Superbowl 3-month plan. Only the one-week trial plan uses the app to activate.
