    Hello Mobile

    https://hellomobile.com/shop/plans/1

    Has anyone else seen the Facebook ads for this? They advertise $25 a month for unlimited data, though throttled at 15GB if you read the fine print. Still not bad. They don't show which coverage map they use, but I checked zip codes and they would have to work on the Sprint or T-Mobile since I tried some zip codes where I know only Verizon and AT&T work.

    Could this be a viable alternative to Mint?

    Looks like you can get 5 lines with 15GB each for $85 a month. Not a bad deal at all.

    It’s QLink Mobile, rebranded. They use the Sprint network.

    This is not the same as QLink Wireless, the lifeline service.

    I don’t feel completely comfortable with QLink in general....

    Based on the phones they sell and the supported BYOP phone list I believe that HelloMobile is a Sprint MVNO.

    Can you use the phone as a hotspot?

    I experimented on the Hello mobile imei checker with the old Sprint iphone 4s using the 14 digit imei (left out last digit) it is compatible with Hello Mobile.

    Tremendous pricing but if it's Sprint I probably won't be able to use it around my area.

    264k is still useful for music streaming, but this is only one csr's response. This is still not bad though.

    264k sounds like a typo for the common 64k. Otherwise wouldn't 256kb be a more common cap?

    Sprint coverage is so bad here that I even had to cancel the free year of service from Sprint. There are are parts of town where it's pretty good but in the outlying areas where I travel it's nearly nonexistent.

    They provide SIMs - any chance they offer GSM service through T-Mobile or are they Sprint SIMs that only work on Sprint network phones?

    I'm pretty sure they are Sprint only. I ordered a sim from them a couple of weeks ago and never received it.

    Their site FAQ states that a GSM compatible phone is required.

    At another site location it says that BYOP phones must be off Sprint or its MVNO's for 60 days.
