Boost Mobile has begun carrying the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. 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. For a limited time, Boost is offering the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c at $100 off of Apple’s retail price when ordered online. In addition, through Nov. 24, the company is offering an additional $100 off when you switch in store from another carrier. As noted by 9to5Mac, who spoke with a Boost representative:
Yes. Now through Nov. 24 new customers who come into a participating Boost Mobile store and switch to Boost Mobile from another carrier will be eligible for a special in-store promotion of $100 off any device bringing new customers additional cost savings.US Cellular also begins carrying Apple's newest handsets beginning today, Nov. 8. 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.
