Boost Mobile To Offer Apple's iPhone 5s And iPhone 5c Beginning Nov. 8

Boost Mobile will begin carrying the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on Friday, Nov. 8. The no-contract carrier is noted for its monthly-unlimited plan that includes “shrinking payments.” Based in Irvine, Calif., Boost Mobile is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sprint. Like Cricket, it offers phones on a prepaid basis. With the company's shrinking payments plan, customers can reduce their monthly bill by $5 for every six on-time monthly payments. This can lower payments to as low as $40 per month. On Saturday, US Cellular announced it would also begin carrying Apple’s newest handsets on Nov. 8. Cricket begins carrying the devices this Friday, Oct. 25. To date, nine other regional carriers have announced iPhone 5s/5c availability, including C Spire, Ntelos, and Strata. Boost Mobile is available nationwide at nearly 20,000 major retail stores, including Best Buy, RadioShack, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart. They are also located at Sprint retail stores, independent wireless dealer locations, and on HSN, a leading TV home shopping network. See also: J.D.
