New $35 Boost Mobile plan gives unlimited talk, text and 2.5 GB of data with auto-pay

Boost-Mobile-logoBoost 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.
