Is there a cheaper plan than mint - $300 for 12 month of 12GB data plus all other benefits etc. Runs on T-Mobile. Is there any other plan or company which even compares?
Mintmobile.com
See prepaidcompare.net
He has a plan finder tool which is very good

Looking for a plan for my son with a couple GB of data and a low-mid range android phone (maybe pixel 3a?). Cheapest option.

Alternatively I can add him to my verizon plan, upgrade my phone with a galaxy s10 (which I have to do anyway) and get a 2nd one with $750 off.

You might be able to add him on to a cheaper line of service, but still on your family plan, and get a family plan discount. I know prepaid Verizon you can.

how would you rate their service ?  the customer service ?
I only use it for talking and texting (in Lakewood). It works well.

I only had to use their customer service once to get a refund. I don't remember the exact response time but it wasn't long.

In my experience
You can do everything on the website.
If you do need customer service. They are very very good. Fast responsive
