Sprint has announced a handful of new smartphones for its subsidiaries Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. Out of the three smartphone additions announced, only one will be making its way to Boost Mobile.
Boost Mobile, Sprint’s prepaid service, has announced some new features for their data plans that will result in “Growing Data” for customers who make their payments on time. Boost Mobile customers will now receive an extra 500MB block of data for every third on-time payment they make for up to 18 months. That means customers could end up with an extra 3GB of high-speed data. Read more
Tom’s Guide have reviewed all the US mobile carriers and come to the conclusion that T-Mobile is the best of the bunch. Their testing goes beyond just general service in your area, but also customer service, phone selection, plans, and any extra special features.
Boost Mobile has added two devices, both manufactured by Alcatel OneTouch, to its lineup for customers. Neither the Conquest nor the Elevate represent the company’s vision for a high-end Android device, but they do offer solid specifications in an affordable package. The Conquest and Elevate both support 4G LTE connection, ship with at least Android 5.0 Lollipop, and cost less than $150. Alcatel OneTouch is continuing to prove that a solid, complete device can be had for less than ever before.
After noticing that Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile customers want more high-speed mobile data, the carriers are bringing a new service that allows their monthly unlimited customers to add more high-speed data after meeting their threshold with new $5 and $10 Data-Pack add-ons. Read more
Earlier today, ZTE launched a brand new budget-friendly smartphone that’s up for grabs exclusively from Boost Mobile for $200 off-contract.

Able to support up to 10 devices at once, the NetGear Fuse is 4G capable. Boost Mobile is also introducing two data plan choices for users who are interested in this new option. Read more
A pair of new LG phones are now available for Boost Mobile customers, including the Tribute 2 and the Volt 2. Both devices offer pretty similar hardware, with the Volt offering a slightly larger screen and battery.
Both phones are powered by a Snapdragon 810 CPU with 1 GB of RAM, and they both have 8 GB of internal storage (plus microSD card slot!) and run Android 5.1. The Volt sports a 5-inch display while the Tribute has a 4.5-inch screen, and the Volt 2’s camera shoots at a slightly higher resolution of 8 megapixels, beating out the 5 megapixel shooter in the Tribute 2. No major differences, but you’ll pay a $50 premium for that nicer camera and bigger screen. Read more
For a limited time, Boost Mobile is letting qualified customers bring their own number from Cricket or MetroPCS can get unlimited data, talk and text with up to 2.5GB of high-speed 4G LTE data starting at $20 a month. Boost claims that the promotion will save you roughly $20-30 by switching compared to you current plan. Once the introductory rates end, customers will be moved to the most comparable monthly plan.
