You can check our coverage map at http://mintmobile.com/coverage. Just enter your zip code or full address. You can also use our free app to check coverage where you work, live and play. If it looks good, you can then buy our $5 Starter Kit, which lets you try our service on your device. We give you 100 texts, 100MB of 4G LTE and 60 minutes of talk (good for 7 days). When you realize how good life is with Mint and purchase a full plan via the app, we’ll even credit the $5 back (gosh, we’re swell).
Just be aware that many outside factors can affect your coverage, including terrain, building structures, weather, peanut allergies and possibly some other stuff. Just sayin’.

Sorry coverage maps are bogus, if you cannot get T-Mobile signal do not get this . Mintsim uses Tmo towers on gsm phones, just spent 6 months on mintsim but a lot of spotty reception in areas claiming to work. Love to stick around on mintsim but just can't deal with being out in the rural areas with no service.

When you're checking Mint's coverage map, make sure you drop a pin as close to your location as you can (down to the street address, if possible.) This will not only localize the coverage check for you, it will also tell which networks TMO has in that location and you'll be able to figure out if you have a compatible phone or not.
Just got mint today. Made the choice based on their maps showing LTE all around me. So far it's been 90% no service. Probably going to go back to att tomorrow.

Same thing for me. Bogus coverage map said I should have signal at exact address when in reality I had ZERO bars.
