About Boost Mobile
Boost Mobile redefines value for wireless consumers with its Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage no-contract service where the longer you stay the less you pay with on-time payments for unlimited voice, text messaging, web, e-mail, IM and calls to 411. It offers nationwide service on the Nationwide Sprint Network and Nextel National Network, reaching more than 278 million people, with no activation or long-distance fees.
This phone is compatible with Boost Mobile’s Unlimited Walkie-Talkie service, which connects you to Boost or Nextel subscribers nationwide at the push of a button. You’ll connect instantly–under a second–on the fastest push-to-talk network with nationwide coverage. The Unlimited Walkie-Talkie service is included in the Boost Mobile Monthly and Daily Unlimited plans, and it can be added for $1 when using Pay As You Go.
Voice and text plans include:
$50 Monthly Unlimited for unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, 411, and e-mail with no contracts. Voicemail, long distance, and call waiting included. And you’ll reduce your monthly payment the longer you stay with Shrinkage.
$2 Daily Unlimited provides all the value of Monthly Unlimited and nationwide coverage at a low daily rate. The $2 subscription charge is automatically deducted from your Boost account each day after midnight, regardless of usage, unless the you cancel the subscription. Recharge at least once every 90 days to keep your account active (after 90 days any credit balance will expire).
Pay As You Go gives the freedom to pay by the minute. All nationwide calls and texts are one convenient rate of 20¢ per minute or 20¢ per text message. You can also add other services such as Internet access (50¢ per day with unlimited usage) and e-mail (99¢ per day with unlimited usage).
International Connect provides unlimited international talk and text with family and friends around the world. It can be added to Monthly Unlimited and Android Monthly Unlimited plans for an additional $5 per month, and added to the BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plan for $10 per month.
All Monthly Unlimited plans include Shrinkage and unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, e-mail, and 411. Shrinkage reduces your payment by $5/month for every six on-time payments, up to $15/month in total. Monthly Unlimited shrinks to as low as $35/month, Android Monthly Unlimited to as low as $40/month, or $45/month for BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited.
On-time payments are made on or before the monthly payment date. Your monthly payment date remains the same every month as long as you successfully make your monthly payment. However, if you make a late payment, your payment date will be reset to the day of the month before the date your service is restored (e.g., if your service is restored on February 15th, your monthly payment date will be reset to March 14th).
While it’s best to make regular on-time payments each month, payments do not have to be consecutive. If you miss a payment you don’t have to start over. The on-time payments made to the account will still be available as well as any savings milestone achieved.
