Boost Mobile iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus coming soon
Sprint’s prepaid brand Boost Mobile has announced that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will become part of its prepaid phone lineup. The carrier hasn’t shared any additional information about the pricing of the new Apple smartphones or when they might become available except that Boost Mobile iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be “Coming soon”.
Apple released new iPhones last week and currently they are available with all major carriers. Boost Mobile isn’t the first prepaid carrier to announce iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Yesterday, Consumer Cellular has announced its plans to add the latest iPhones to its prepaid phone lineup, exclusive to AARP members, on September 26.
Boost Mobile was discounting previous iPhones by $100 at the time of their launch. Will that be the case with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well, we’ll see soon enough. Given that Consumer Cellular will be offering its versions starting this Friday, it won’t be long before Boost Mobile starts offering its models.
Boost Mobile currently offers $5 per month discounted plans that include double high speed data allotments. In addition to unlimited talk and messaging, the $35 plan (regular $40) offers unlimited data with first 1 GB at high speeds (regular 500 MB), the $45 plan (regular $50) first 5 GB at high speeds (regular 2.5 GB) and the $55 plan (regular $60) has first 10 GB of high speed data (regular 5 GB). Customers will be able to keep the promotional plans after promotion ends as long as they keep the account active or don’t switch the plans. When high speed data allotment is reached, Boost Mobile throttles data speed at 128 Kbps.
