    What mobile system does this use? That would mean a lot to me to determine reliability. I live in a rural/suburban area on the East Coast, and right now, Verizon is the only service that covers my area well. Believe me, if I could save money by switching to a reliable carrier in my area, I would. Any information and suggestions would truly be welcome.

    Mint uses T-Mobile (now Sprint too) towers. If you check T-Mo's coverage map it will let you know. Mint's map doesn't show 5g areas that T-Mo covers even though you get 5g coverage through Mint anyway. I tend to have coverage even in places I didn't with VZW.

    If T-Mobile doesn't have coverage for you there are several MVNOs that use Verizon:

    Straight Talk (uses other networks, make sure to get Verizon)
    Page Plus
    Total Wireless
    Red Pocket (uses other networks too, need to specify Verizon AKA "CDMA")
    Yahoo Mobile
    Ting (I use Ting and if there's some T-Mobile coverage they send a T-Mobile SIM, you'd have to request a Verizon SIM when signing up)

    So far I've been Impressed for the price we pay, and service has been spot on, and love the fact that Wifi Calling/Texting seems to be working flawlessly, which wasn't offered on my Unlocked OnePlus device with Cricket. they also allow free Mobile Hotspot (Tethering)

    That's a big plus for me as often campgrounds have terrible wifi. So my next annual renewal will be unlimited and I'll tether for internet.
