Hello, to bring your device it must be an unlocked, GSM-network phone. If the device is locked, please reach out to your carrier to have the device unlocked.

Yes, it will.

T-Mobile is what's known as an MNO (mobile network operator.) Mint is an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator.) Typically--at least on the GSM side--MVNO customers can use the parent MNO's phones without needing to unlock, but it doesn't work the other way around.
Best thing for you to do is order the $5 mint mobile trial kit on amazon. You can give it a try, if it fails $5 gone too bad. If it works, you can use the additional SIM to activate your plan and get cracking on mint mobile.

If you're really cheap, find a friend with mintsim and try his/her sim..
