Hello, please note that this device could work with our SIM card, however, if the coverage and signal are not strong, the 4G LTE will not work perfectly. We would recommend trying it to see how it works there.

I plan to remove the Mint SIM from my phone and put it in the Netgear LB1120 to see if there is any coverage at the remote site. If there is coverage, I can buy a Mint Mobile plan for the Netgear. Testing with the phone alone is not good enough because we need to test with an antenna attached to the Netgear.

After I put the testing SIM back in my phone it should work in my phone just as it did before the testing, right?

Fingers crossed.

Yes, you can try your Mint SIM card on that device and once you put it back on your phone is should work normally.
