    Nothing is that free. The cost must come somewhere.

    There you go! If this is one way of making the cost, then some deal or arrangement had to happen between the carrier and the manufacturer. It could be worth the cost for some customers. Maybe other members have other ideas or understanding how the cost could be made for "free for six months" service.

    "the iphone"? What if a customer brings their own device, and it is an iPhone? Now it is unlocked to begin with. Mint has no way to lock this device; is this correct?

    NOTE: I checked the webpage, so my guess was found to be wrong. See next posting.

    Now I see. The deals page, https://www.mintmobile.com/deals/ , shows that this six-month free deal is for choice of any of some specific devices, a few of which are iPhones. But the question is, what if customer brings their own phone, and it IS one of those iPhones? No! "When you buy phone + 6 month plan". So "bring your own" is not a qualifier for six month free service.
