Are you planning on traveling to the United States anytime soon? Whether you're a tourist, student, or on a business trip, one thing that can make your trip super convenient is getting a personal U.S. mobile number. While your local provider offers roaming access, this may not be the best option considering the international charges and possible hidden fees. There are definitely more benefits to getting a personal U.S. number, like access to wider signal coverage and cheaper rates for calls and text messages.

If you're looking for the best mobile phone plans for international travel or the best mobile phone plans for students, Mint Mobile has an awesome selection of plans to suit your needs.
