Sprint’s prepaid subsidiary Boost Mobile announced adding the Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to their list of offerings. Both smartphones will be available starting from October 17th, which makes Boost Mobile the first prepaid carrier to sell the freshest phones from Apple. The same happened in 2013, when the company started to offer iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. What’s even more interesting, Boost Mobile will sell the latest iPhones with $100 discount. Feel interested in further details? Let’s take a closer look at the offer.
What a better way to celebrate new partnership than to release a new smartphone? Probably there isn’t one and that’s what Sprint, Sharp and Japanese company Softbank thought when they set to work on the Sharp Aquos Crystal smartphone. The device was announced back in August and now is starting to make its way to stores. Prepaid Sprint and Boost Mobile have just begun selling the phone for $149.99 without contract.
There was never any doubt that US four biggest service providers, that is AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile will offer the new iPhones almost immediately after they were unveiled. Pre-paid carriers like Boost Mobile, however, are a different story. While it’s not unusual at all for pre-paid networks to add the most premium phones to their portfolio, it often happens with significant delay. Not this time, though. On Tuesday Boost Mobile officially confirmed that will soon sell the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
It’s perfectly understandable that such premium phones as the recently launched iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S5, the LG G3 or the HTC One M8 are the first to stand in the limelight. After all, who isn’t excited about the latest technology? There are, however, a number of not so high-end phones that still deserve our attention. One of such handsets is the HTC Desire 510 released by Sprint last week. As promised, the phone is now available also at Boost Mobile priced at $99.99 without contract, and will be coming to Virgin Mobile soon.
Boost Mobile confirmed that would be offering the Samsung Galaxy S5 a few days after the phone was announced, so it wasn’t much of a surprise when earlier today the carrier added the device to its high-end smartphones portfolio. Boost Mobile is a pre-paid carrier so it doesn’t require signing up contracts. Consequently, you can’t take advantage of subsidies that normally are a part of long-term agreements. In other words, it means that you will have to pay full retail price for the Galaxy S5 which, in the case of Boost Mobile, is $599.99. For comparison, it’s exactly the same as Verizon’s off-contract price and $50 less than Sprint’s and AT&T’s.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have electrifying news for you today. The LG Volt running on lighting fast Sprint’s Spark network has just arrived at Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile prepaid carriers. The device belongs to the latest iteration of LG’s F series which skillfully combines decent hardware and software with budget-friendly prices. The phone is available for purchase online and in stores for an affordable price of $179.99. Since Boost and Virgin Mobile are prepaid carriers, no long-term contracts are required.
Smartphones are cool and fun to have, however, in certain circumstances they just don’t do well. Despite of all the extra protection manufacturers are adding, smartphones are not the best piece of equipment to take with you on a hike in the mountains or a bike trip in the woods. However, if you still want to keep in touch with friends and family, a ruggedized phone may come in handy such as the Kyocera DuraShock which is now for sale at Boost Mobile. This basic flip phone will set you back just $59.99 and since Boost Mobile is a prepaid carrier, you won’t have to sign lengthy contracts.
If you feel that you are not ready for a smartphone just yet, there is no need to force yourself to buy one just because all your friends have iPhones or Android phones. There are plenty of feature phones out there that are functional, stylish and most importantly affordable. Lets take for example the new Kyocera Verve messaging phone featuring QWERTY keyboard which soon will be coming to Sprint and two of its prepaid subsidiaries – Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
LG Optimus F3 for Boost Mobile pre-paid service is now for sale in carrier’s online store and local dealers
Better later than never – apparently, that’s the idea behind Boost Mobile’s latest release. Nine months after the LG Optimus F3 was launched on Sprint, T-Mobile, Metro PCS and Virgin Mobile networks; Boost Mobile is finally added the phone to its roster. The most obvious advantage of such late release is that the device is cheap. It will set you back only $129.99, and since Boost Mobile offers pre-paid service, the Optimus F3 doesn’t require a contract. The phone is on sale not only in the carrier’s online store but also at local dealers.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is one of the most important releases of this year so it’s not surprising that it will be available on all major US carriers. When the phone was announced last week at MWC in Barcelona, it was confirmed immediately that it will arrive on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile as well as US Cellular and Metro PCS. The list doesn’t end here, though. Sprint announced that two of its pre-paid subsidiaries, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, will be carrying the newest Samsung Galaxy S5 as well.
Our suspicions about the ZTE Iconic Phablet being on its way to Boost Mobile proved to be accurate. The phablet indeed graced the carrier’s store with its presence today, under a different name, though. If you are interested in the device look for a Boost Max, as this is how the big guy is called here in the US. The Boost Max can be yours in the carrier’s retail locations and online store for $299.99. Since Boost Mobile is a pre-paid carrier, you won’t need to sign any long-term contracts.
Unless @evleaks is mistaken, and he rarely is, a new ZTE handset is apparently on its way to Boost Mobile stores. The famous leakster broke the news via tweet that included a picture of a phone called Boost Max also known as ZTE Beast. Since the image was not accompanied by any details, we don’t know neither what the device hides inside, nor when it will be available for purchase and how much it will cost. There are, however, a few telltale signs that give us at least a vague idea of what to expect.
A leaked image from last month suggested that the Moto G could be heading to Boost Mobile. And indeed, here it is waiting for you at the carrier’s online store. The phone will cost you just $129.99 and not a penny more, since the shipping is free. If you prefer to actually see a device with your own eyes before you pay for it, you will have to wait until January 20th which is when it will go on sale in Boost Mobile retail stores.
A GSM version of Motorola’s budget-friendly Moto G has been available in the US for a while. The manufacturer is selling the SIM lock free phone via its own website and third-party vendors at price starting at $179. Given the combination of price and the handset’s specs, the Moto G is probably one of the most attractive offerings currently available on the market. A CDMA version will be heading to the stores in the first quarter of 2014 and, as confirmed by an official tweet, will land on Verizon Wireless in pre-paid flavor.
As expected, today Boost Mobile started selling the iPhone 5S and 5C. Both phones are available through the carrier’s online store as well as retail stores. Right from the very beginning, Boost Mobile is offering a $100 discount on all models. The iPhone 5S costs $549.99 for the 16 GB model, $649.99 for the 32 GB model and $749.99 for the 64 GB model. The iPhone 5C can be yours for $449.99 and $549.99 for the 16 GB and 32 GB variant, respectively.
Earlier this month we reported that Boost Mobile finally might start selling iPhones, and not just any iPhones, but the latest offerings from Apple, the iPhone 5S and 5C. The news was based on a Tweek coming from @evleaks that included two adds for the phones and at that time was verified neither by Boost Mobile, nor by Apple. If you were wondering if the info was legit, we can tell you that it is. The carrier has confirmed that both the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be available for purchase starting November 8th.
Boost Mobile has been one of the few US carriers that did not have any Apple iPhones in the offer. This may change soon, though. It has been rumored since April that Boost Mobile will be adding an iPhone to its roster some time in the third quarter of this year. The third quarter has come and gone and there is still no sign of any iPhone on Boost Mobile, but let’s not lose hope. It appears that the rumor was true after all.
Boost Mobile has included a new Android-powered 4G LTE smartphone in its offer. The new addition is an updated version of last year’s ZTE Warp. The no-contract carrier is selling the phone as the Boost Warp 4G at a price of $199.99. The device can be paired with Boost Mobile’s $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments, which includes unlimited talk, text, and picture messaging. With Shrinking Payments, every six on-time payments reduce monthly costs by $5, going as low as $40 after 18 months.
If you are not keen on signing lengthy contracts with carriers, chances are that you may be a Boost Mobile customer. If indeed you are, then we have some good news for you. The carrier has just expanded its offer with a new smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail 2. Unlike most off-contract devices, the Galaxy Prevail 2 sports an affordable price tag. You can grab the phone for just $179.99. Being a prepaid carrier, Boost Mobile will not require you to sign any service agreements, obviously.
