Here's a simple way you can port your number with Mint Mobile

Mint Mobile is a prepaid carrier operating on T-Mobile's network that sells its plans in multi-month bundles so you can save money. You can buy three, six, or 12 months at a time, and plans come in 4GB, 10GB, 15GB, and even unlimited with 5G included. If you decide to try out Mint Mobile, porting your number from another carrier is relatively simple and painless. Best of all, it's free.

How to port your number to Mint

Before starting the porting process, it's important to note that your phone number must remain active on your previous carrier throughout the process. If you cancel your old service before moving to Mint, you likely won't be able to recover your phone number — at least, not without going through a much more tedious process.

You will need a Mint Mobile SIM card and a compatible phone to get started. Mint Mobile will work with any of the best Android phones thanks to the T-Mobile network's great compatibility.

If you have a Google Pixel phone or newer iPhone, you can also activate with an eSIM. During checkout, select eSIM as your delivery option, and you will receive activation information after you complete your purchase.

  1. Gather some information from your current carrier, including your account number, PIN or password, and the ZIP code or billing address associated with the account. You'll find your account number at the top of most paperwork, including phone bills and receipts. Still, if you're unsure about any information, you can call your existing carrier's customer service line.
  2. Visit mintmobile.com and click Activate near the top right of the page.
    • You can also activate through the Mint Mobile app.
  3. Enter your activation code. This is an 11 digit ACT code that you'll find on the back of your SIM card, above the "active by" date.
  4. Click Get Started.
  5. During activation, select Port My Number when prompted.
  6. Enter the account number, PIN or password, and ZIP code or billing address associated with your previous carrier.

That's it! Once you're done, you can create a Mint Mobile account to keep track of your plan, but the porting process should be out of your hands, and your number will change over automatically. Depending on various factors like your previous carrier, the transfer could be instant or take up to 48 hours — just be patient. Transfers from a landline service could take longer.

If you have any questions along the way, you can always call Mint Mobile's customer service at 800-683-7392 or chat with an agent online. But once the number transfer is complete, you'll receive a welcome text from Mint confirming your Mint Mobile port number, and in most cases, your existing service will cancel automatically. From here, all that's left is to enjoy your new service.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Whitestone Dome screen protectors return for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

These accessories don't come cheap. What you need to know Whitestone has launched new tempered glass screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 series. The screen protectors are more expensive because they use liquid adhesive. Whitestone sells these accessories for as low as $45. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro already feature Gorilla Glass Victus for both its front and back panel, which is touted as the toughest phone glass available. But that should not give you full confidence that the phones will withstand repeated drops. While you can always buy a screen protector, your options for capable items are likely to be limited due to a number of factors, including the phones' curved display. Fortunately, Whitestone is now back with its tempered glass screen protectors for Google's best Android phones after skipping the Pixel 4 and 5 series (via 9to5Google ). Whitestone has a reputation for providing some of the highest-quality accessories on the market for protecting

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
