Irvine, CA -- Furthering its commitment to offer value and simplicity in no contract wireless services, Boost Mobile®, part of the Sprint Prepaid Group, announced its popular $50 ‘Monthly Unlimited’ plan will be available on January 13, 2010 on the Nationwide Sprint CDMA Network reaching more than 274 million people. By late January, Boost Mobile customers will be able to take advantage of three new CDMA handsets that include Kyocera’s Sanyo Mirro™ SCP3810 and Sanyo Incognito™ SCP6760, along with Boost Mobile’s first smartphone, the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8330 from Research In Motion (RIM) available on a new $60 ‘BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited’ plan.
Consumers choose Monthly Unlimited for nationwide cell phone service without a contract because it offers a superior network with fewer dropped call rates* compared to prepaid carriers MetroPCS and Leap. And with the addition of Sanyo and BlackBerry handsets to its current portfolio of durable Motorola handsets, Boost Mobile offers a superior handset line-up compared to no contract offers from Straight Talk and Page Plus.
“Offering Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan on the Nationwide Sprint Network, in addition to being currently offered on the Nextel National Network, significantly maximizes our growth potential in the prepaid arena,” said Dan Schulman, President, Sprint Prepaid Group. “Those who have been intrigued with the simplicity and transparency of the Boost Mobile offer will have even more reason to join with our increased selection of network capabilities and phones.”
