Yes! You can use your Mint Mobile data to power a mobile hotspot on your smartphone.

All Mint Mobile plans come with hotspot capability. But the 4G LTE or 5G data that you use will be deducted from your normal data allotment, so be careful about how you use the hotspot. (It won’t be ideal for online gaming, for example.)

Those with unlimited data plans from Mint Mobile will have a hotspot data cap of 5 GB. That should give you enough for some casual web browsing, standard-definition streaming, or for researching that final term paper you’ve been putting off.

How to set up Mint Mobile hotspots

To set up your mobile hotspot on Mint, just find the appropriate section in the settings of your Mint Mobile smartphone.

  2. Select the Cellular Data option at the top.
