Boost Mobile announced this morning new plans that don’t require a contract that are also easy on the wallet. While Boost Mobile has already been known for cheap prepaid plans that start at $35, Boost’s new $35 Data Boost plan offers 2.5GB of data on top of unlimited text and talk. The one caveat though is that if you want 2.5GB of data you’ll have to enroll in auto-pay otherwise you’ll get 1GB of data.
The new plan will be available starting on Feb. 3, and will be available to new and existing customers. For those who want more data, you can get up to 10GB of data for $55 a month, which isn’t a bad deal. We have the presser for you after the break.
If you were waiting for Boost Mobile’s no-contract Galaxy Prevail LTE to go on sale, the wait is over. The carrier announced the device earlier this month and you’ll now be able to pick up the LTE-capable Samsung smartphone for $129.99 outright.
Boost Mobile will be adding Samsung’s Galaxy Prevail LTE to its lineup on January 19th for $129.99. Like other Boost Mobile devices, there’s no contract attached to the phone.
$129.99 gets you a 4.5-inch screen, a capable Snapdragon 410 CPU, 8 GB of internal storage with 1 GB of RAM, and a 5 megapixel camera. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and has plenty of connectivity options to access Boost Mobile’s LTE network.
Sprint’s prepaid wireless service, Boost Mobile, announced today that you can pick up the ZTE Speed for $100 off contract. The ZTE Speed doesn’t offer much in terms of specs, but getting Android 4.4 KitKat on a budget phone definitely isn’t something to scoff at.
A new device from Samsung arrived at the FCC within the last twenty-four hours, showing it is destined for Boost Mobile. The model number for the device is SM-G360P. This is expected to be United States version of the Galaxy Core Prime.
The specifications for the Galaxy Core Prime are on the low-end. The price stays low to remain an entry-level handset for customers. The device has a 4.5-inch display (800×480 resolution), Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB of RAM, 5MP / 2MP cameras, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slat, and 2000mAh battery. Right out of the box is Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Ready or not, here comes the Aquos Crystal. If you are a customer of either Sprint or Boost Mobile, you can get your hands on the Sharp device. The Aquos Crystal from Boost Mobile is available today for $150 with no contract to sign. The Boost Mobile version is also being sold through Best Buy.
Sprint customers have to wait one more week for the Aquos Crystal to arrive on October 17. Without going the prepaid route (starting October 21 for $150), the Sprint version’s cost is diced up into twenty-four monthly payments of $10.
Does the Sharp Aquos Crystal’s unique design catch your eye? Let us know in the comments.
HTC and Sprint have announced availability for the Desire 510 on the carrier’s network, and if you’re on any of Sprint’s prepaid or postpaid networks, it’s looking like you’ll be able to get your hands on the device. For Sprint Easy Pay customers, you can own the device for just $9 per month for two years, and Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will carry it with a $99 price tag.
Sprint hasn’t changed the specs of the device at all, so you’ll get Qualcomm’s zippy Snapdragon 400 64-bit CPU, 1 GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 4.7-inch display. At the price point that the 510 is being offered, it’s a hard phone to beat.
Boost Mobile, the off-contract wireless division for Sprint, is now offering the ZTE Warp Sync for $179.99 off-contract.
You can get the device now online — in-store purchases can’t be made until September 1.
The phone is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, has a 5-inch display, and a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. You’ll also get 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. There’s an 8MP rear shooter with a 1.6MP front camera. The battery is 2300mAh.
Any Boost customers liking this new offering? Hit the break for the full press release.
As expected, Sprint went ahead and announced the Sharp Aquos Crystal, which is the first device to come out of the Sprint and Softbank merger. It will of course be available with Softbank in Japan, but it will also be available exclusively at Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA.
The Sharp Aquos Crystal features a 5-inch edge-to-edge 720p (1280 x 720) display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, 8 MP rear camera, 1.2 MP front-facing camera, 2,040 mAh battery, Sprint Spark network, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Some people just don’t want or need that expensive smartphone. Sometimes they just want durability. So Boost Mobile customers can now take a look at the Hydro Icon. This Kyocera device, carrying a differently branded name, brings mid-range specifications to Boost Mobile customers for $149.99 without a contract. To protect it, Kyocera made sure it had IP57 certification. This means it can be submerged in up to 1m of water for 30 minutes. The Hydro Icon can absorb shock from drops and falls thanks to its Military Standard 810G design. Interestingly enough, the device supports wireless charging right out of the box (PMA standard).
The 4.5-inch display has a qHD resolution and the glass panel itself is touted as being very durable, too. Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. If the 8GB of internal storage worried you, there is a microSD card slot to add 32GB. On the back is an 8MP camera and a 2MP one sits on the front. To keep the Hydro Icon going through the day, the 2000mAh battery has some battery saving modes.
