The Best Mobile Phone Cell Plan for New Arrivals in the US

Mint Mobile is a newer player on the market and they've “re-imagined the wireless shopping experience and made it way easier.” They've basically taken the good bits and made it all a little bit easier to get signed up without too man hurdles when you're first arriving – and it's our top recommendation.

Julie at America Josh recently signed up:

I visited Mint Mobile's website and entered my zipcode and phone type to check coverage.

You need to pay for 3 months in advance to get their range of deals and after the initial three months is up you can renew with a 3, 6 or 12-month plan to keep the savings going or just go back to the normal monthly plan ($30)

You can get a new sim, or use your existing sim if you have an e-sim compatible phone. I ported my existing number from T-mobile but you can easily get a new number if required. It was very quick and simple and I would recommend it to anyone.

I chose it because of the price but then found one of the best added bonuses is it allows wi-fi calling so I can call regular numbers in Australia! It also allows for hotspotting which my t-mobile prepaid did not.Julie @ America Josh

Why Mint Mobile for America Josh new arrivals to the US?

So why do we recommend Mint Mobile as our go-to plan for new arrivals? Well first things first, you get 50% off your first three months if you sign up using this link!

Affordable Plans That Fit Your Needs

Mint Mobile lets you customize your plan so you only pay for the data you actually need. We see so many of these plans require you to jump in at a level that you might not use or want to pay for, so this way you get what you actually want.

  • Choose from various data options – whether you're a light user or a heavy data streamer.
  • Start with a smaller plan and upgrade anytime if you need more data AND MORE IMPORTANTLY you can downgrade if you went too high.

Save Big Without Sacrificing Coverage

Mint Mobile operates on the same reliable nationwide network as the major carriers, but at significantly lower prices. Some of the other options available have crappy networks when you sign up for a cheaper plan, which is why we find Mint a bit more efficient than most.

  • Enjoy reliable coverage across the US without the inflated price tag.
  • Get the same great 5G/4G LTE speeds as the big names.

Easy Setup, No Contracts

Get your phone service up and running in minutes, all from home. The hardest part about just arriving in the US is the fact that you have so many things to do and so little time. Not to mention it's hard to get around and wait in lines when there's so much to do.
