What is the Bobby Bonilla plan?

This epic Mint Mobile deal is a partnership between former New York Met's star Bobby Bonilla and Mint Mobile. Every July 1, Bobby Bonilla collects $1.19 million from the New York Mets. Bonilla and the New York Mets settled on this deal back in 2000 when he was released from his contract after an underwhelming season. At the time, the Mets owed him $5.6 million, but instead of paying it out, struck a deal to pay him $1.19 million every July 1 from 2011 to 2035. 

Bonilla is now teaming up with Mint Mobile to provide a similarly unheard of deal for its wireless customers. New members who sign up today will get 25 years of service for $8.33 per month. Subscribers will be billed $100 per year ($99.96) for 25 years. That's one of the best cell phone plans we've seen all year. 

What is Mint Mobile?

Mint Mobile is an MVNO that operates on T-Mobile's network. Since T-Mobile is a GSM-based network, you're going to want a GSM-based phone to use at Mint Mobile.  Like most prepaid wireless networks, Mint Mobile does make some compromises to offer that cheaper price. Customer support isn't always readily available and you don't always get the best possible data speeds. That said, if you can put up with occasionally slowed-down data and having to go to community forums to solve some problems on your own, Mint shouldn't let you down.
