Info & Contact


Boost Mobile is a California-based mobile phone service that primarily targets the youth market. Formed and launched in Australia in 2001, Boost Mobile was purchased by Sprint in late 2004.

Boost Mobile offers aggressive calling plans, including its Unlimited Service, which offers unlimited calling from $50 to $70 per month. Usage is generally limited to the local calling region and roaming charges apply outside those areas.

In 2009 Boost Mobile announced its Nationwide Unlimited plan, aggressively-priced at $50.00 per month. Running on the Sprint Nextel iDEN network, this plan offers a complete suite of services to customers, including calling, text, web and walkie-talkie Services. Boost Mobile’s calling plans fall into both CDMA and iDEN formats, depending on the calling plan selected.

Boost Mobile’s business model strongly focuses on an all-in-one, no-hassle, no-hidden-cost calling plan that is easy to understand and priced less than larger competitors.

Voice network: iDEN, CDMA 1900 MHz
Data network: 1xRTT, EVDO Rev. A

Solid customer service, decent selection of phones

Boost Mobile's performance is hampered by the fact that it relies on the network of parent company Sprint. But there are other positives to this network. The carrier has the best selection of phones among prepaid providers, strong customer service and some attractive plans, especially now that you can boost your data allotment by making regular on-time payments. All of those are enough to make it tie with MetroPCS as the best choice for prepaid carrier, despite the latter's vastly superior network performance.

Prices are the most affordable

If the best cell phone providers are the ones that are most affordable, then Boost Mobile deserves recognition. Its cheap prices and welcome discounts give you superb value for money. You don't have the same degree of choice as other providers when it comes to picking your phone, and its coverage can be spotty in some areas thanks to its reliance on the Sprint network. If you just want cheap cell phone service, though, Boost could well be your best bet.

Offers phones for every lifestyle and budget

from Reviews.com

Boost Mobile's unlimited prepaid phone plans will appeal to heavy cell phone users who want to keep costs low without sacrificing quality. You have to buy a new device when you sign up, but they do have a nice selection of the latest smartphones to choose from.

Boost is a honest carrier

No live service

I have tried repeatedly to get a live person to talk to at Boost Mobile to no avail. Can anybody tell me how I can get through?

It lasted 15 months, then the only way i could call anyone was with the speaker on.

It was a great phone while it lasted. After about 15 months i suddenly realized that I had to use the speaker to make all calls. I contacted tech support and they said i neeed a repair from Motorala.

It was a great phone while it lasted. After about 15 months i suddenly realized that I had to use the speaker to make all calls. I contacted tech support and they said i neeed a repair from Motorala. When I called them they said their would be a charge and I'd have to ship the phone to them. Since i could'nt be without a phone, that was out of the question. I took care of the phone, and never dropped it or anything; I guess we are supposed to replace everything we own at the drop of a hat. Just think if your car or, stereo, or giant flat panel t.v. only lasted 15 months, and they told you to replace it. if the next phone breaks down I'm going to get the cheapest available. Or maybe I'll just bean the salesman in the head with it. At least I'll get a laugh.

My Boost is a good value with the i776

I've been using Boost, no contract, $50 unlimited monthly for 9 months now. Total monthly fee is $53 with taxes. I ported my landline number of 35 years over to this cell and pay much less than I was paying for 6 mo of limited cell, local and longdistance landline. I'm a snowbird that spends about 6 mo. in the midwest between Chicago, IL. and Milwaukee WI. and 6 months in Kingman Arizona near Bullhead City / Laughlin NV. When I answer, people can't tell if I'm in AZ or IL. I've had no signal problems in these home and surrounding areas but coverage is not contiguous from IL to AZ so this company may net be for everybody. I use the Motorola i776 for phone calls, texting, pictures, IM and E-mail. My daughter has one too but gets poor signal at her home in McHenry, IL. She is the only one I can share using the Nextel Walkie-Talkie feature. I use the the i776 Bluetooth to connect to my Panasonic wireless house phones. The web service is limited so I can't go to all the same sites I can go to on my computer. The e-mail service is also limited to text but Boost took the time to get an e-mail application that works with most of the free e-mail services and IM with this i776 phone. The phone's camera is lacking fine image quality but is a handy feature. All in all I find this to be the best value for me, at the present time.
