Boost Mobile runs on Sprint’s network as a subsidiary, similar to the way Virgin Mobile USA operates. Boost Mobile is a prepaid and pay as you go phone network that is famous for its commercials and advertising aimed at the youth audience. They target hip and up and coming youth who want to up their street cred with a gnarly carrier, and that carrier is Boost Mobile. They are famous for their colloquial slogan “Where you at?”, and while this may not pass the grammar police by ending the sentence with a preposition, it is catchy and it works.
Boost Mobile is not just for kids though, they offer a ton of options and features for everyone with web access, ringtones, games, and more, many offered on an ala carte basis. The options are laid out so that users can design a plan that meets their unique needs, since standard plans don’t apply to everyone, and Boost Mobile subscribers are not just standard. Because of this the Boost Mobile network has developed a dedicated fan base of young, money-saving hipsters.
One thing that might be a drawback is that without the two year contract agreements that subsidize the prices of the phones, the phones tend to be a little more expensive up front. This is largely due to the fact that because Boost Mobile is attempting to provide a large feature set to users, they have to work with more robust phones. Boost Mobile phones range in price from $30 to $280 for top of the line Android phones.
Like many other pay as you go Mobile phone networks, Boost Mobile offers an unlimited plan at 50 dollars a month with all you can use texts, phone minutes, and mobile web. They also have a “pay as you play” option where users just pay for services at a rate per minute or per use.
In conclusion, Boost Mobile offers the most customizable prepaid and pay as you go phone options on the market. They have something to meet the needs of everyone, not matter what your tastes and price range is. Get your phone, and I’m going to call you later asking “Where you at?”
