    At least they finally have a way to manage multiple lines with one login. I've asked them for that for years. They really hit it out of the park for online / app base account management.

    Another plus is how they do international roaming. It's something like $0.02 / minute and you prebuy in $10 increments. So between Wifi calling and cheap overseas rates I don't have to go running around trying to buy a local sim when I travel.

    I've had the 8GB plan (was the 5GB but they bumped it in the last year) for a while now. I may jump to unlimited on my line and use it as a hotspot when I camp.

    What the benefit to manage the multiple lines, can you still manage and not have not on all the same payment charge card, my wife is on my CC and my line I still pay it through the company, does that affect anything, or do they have to be on the same payment card ?

    I have four lines, and I staggered the start times so I have an annual renewal every three months. Before I would have to log into each account to renew, now I can check them all from my account, plus I get all the plan notifications (low data for example). It doesn't look like you can have different payment methods, I hadn't checked until you asked as that wasn't a need for me.

    So far switching from Cricket to Mint, I must say I am impressed. Was easy to switch, quick and number ported in lest then 3 minutes. Their ease of use of the Mint Mobile App is much better then Crickets. One thing I hope they add in the future is VisualVmail app( I Know I can use a third party app like Youmail), rather then having to call in for message. Other then that the experience has been flawless. Referrals communications have been spot on, and the free 3 months credit has already been added to my next yearly billing. :cool:

    Spotty, but the times I've used it I've been on less than stellar WiFi, but that is often the nature of not having cell signal is the environment, not a coverage problem. Hospitals, warehouses, etc. I tend to manually toggle it on and off as there isn't a good way to tell the phones to use the stronger signal, just choose to prefer calls over wifi or prefer calls over cellular.

    My best use case is when traveling overseas. If your resort has at least moderate wifi you can use your phone like you are still in the US.

    I've had mine on for the past week and so far no issues, in certain areas of the house the cell signal drops and people hear us gargled, so figured I'd give it a go and see, so far no issues here, but it's early in testing. :thinking:

    So it's been a month now that I have switched over, and I haven't missed a beat. So far so good, and barely used any of my data, since these day I'm mainly at home. The VOWiFi has been great to date since my home usually has certain area's that have Dead Spots.

    Those of you on the 8GB Plan, coming up they will be adding 2GB to that monthly plan on your next renewal. So plan in the future will be 10GB per month
