Mint Mobile turns two, offers a $5 starter kit with 100% money back guarantee

Today Mint Mobile is turning two. In order to celebrate its anniversary, the company announced a $5 Starter Kit that makes it easier for people to try Mint’s services.

In case you don’t know. Mint Mobile is what’s considered a mobile virtual network operator. MVNOs operate on the infrastructure of existing networks. In the case of Mint, that network is T-Mobile.

Unlike traditional carriers, Mint Mobile does not charge by the month for its plans. Instead, it requires customers to sign-up for service for 3, 6 or 12 months. After this introductory period, prices go up but not as much as if you were using other carriers.

You can get free service from Mint for 7 days

The $5 kit contains a Mint Mobile SIM card with 100MB of 4G LTE data, 100 texts, and 100 minutes of talk. The idea is be able to easily try out Mint Mobile and see if it’s a good fit for you in the area you live in. After all, it comes down to coverage and Mint’s availability in your area. You can also check out Mint’s map on its website, to see if the service will work for you.

If after trying the kit, you decide that Mint is not for you, the carrier will give you your money back 100% guaranteed.

Mint Mobile is currently offering several plans which include:

  • 2GB of 4G LTE data, Unlimited Talk and Text – $15/per month for 3 months
  • 5GB of 4G LTE data, Unlimited Talk and Text – $20/ per month for 3 months
  • 10GB of 4G LTE data, Unlimited Talk and Text – $25/ per month for 3 months

Six month-plans start at $18/month, while the cheapest 12-month plan will take you back with $15/month.

So if you were thinking about trying out Mint for yourself, now it’s the time to do so. Just note the $5 kit lets you try the MVNO’s services for a total of 7 days. We think it’s plenty of time to decide whether you want to do business with Mint or not.

Oukitel WP2 rugged phone coming soon with 10,000 mAh battery (Promoted)

If you are looking for a rugged phone you can toss around without worrying how it might land, listen to this.

Chinese brand Oukitel, which is known for producing rugged phones, is preparing to release another one. It’s called the WP2 and it will be a successor of Oukitel’s original rugged phone, the K1000 Max.

And like the K10000 Max and WP5000 before it, the WP2 will be marketed as a tri-proof smartphone. This means, the device will boast IP68 certification, as well as being dust-proof and shockproof. Oh, yes and it will feature a massive 10,000 mAh battery.

Oukitel WP2 shows up in first video

Oukitel has recently teased its upcoming device in a video which shows the WP2 taking on the elements. Combining polystyrene ebonite and polyethylene flexible glue, the phone brings exceptional damage resistance to water, scratches and bumps.

The video briefly demonstrates the tri-proof qualities of the phone including being waterproof, dust-proof and shock-proof.

We have no news to share regarding specs, but information on the matter should become available in the next few weeks. So stay tuned.

According to Oukitel’s product team, the WP2 will be ready to go official around the end of August. So if you’re on the market for a rugged handset, you might want to wait for Oukitel’s upcoming device.

Alternatively, if you’re in a hurry to make a purchase, the company’s WP5000 is still available to buy. For example, the device is available on AliExpress for approximately $219.

The phone offers the services of a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It’s powered by an Helio P25, backed up by a hefty 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The WP5000 also takes advantage of a dual 16MP+5MP camera on the back.

But unlike the upcoming WP2, the WP5000 features a smaller 5,200 mAh battery. It also ships with the outdated Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, while the WP2 will probably have Android Oreo on board.
