Boost mobile to offer handsets on nationwide sprint network with ‘monthly unlimited’

BOOST MOBILE TO OFFER HANDSETS ON NATIONWIDE SPRINT NETWORK WITH ‘MONTHLY UNLIMITED’ PREPAID PLAN

Sprint CDMA—Available January 13—and Nextel iDEN Network Powerhouse Combination Enhances Boost Mobile Phone Portfolio and Coverage to Serve over 274 Million Customers Nationwide

IRVINE, Calif. – Furthering its commitment to offer value and simplicity in no contract wireless services, today Boost Mobile®, part of the Sprint Prepaid Group, announced its popular $50 ‘Monthly Unlimited’ plan will be available on January 13, 2010 on the Nationwide Sprint CDMA Network reaching more than 274 million people. By late January, Boost Mobile customers will be able to take advantage of three new CDMA handsets that include Kyocera’s Sanyo Mirro™ SCP3810 and Sanyo Incognito™ SCP6760, along with Boost Mobile’s first smartphone, the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8330 from Research In Motion (RIM) available on a new $60 ‘BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited’ plan.

Consumers choose Monthly Unlimited for nationwide cell phone service without a contract because it offers a superior network with fewer dropped call rates* compared to prepaid carriers MetroPCS and Leap. And with the addition of Sanyo and BlackBerry handsets to its current portfolio of durable Motorola handsets, Boost Mobile offers a superior handset line-up compared to no contract offers from Straight Talk and Page Plus.

“Offering Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan on the Nationwide Sprint Network, in addition to being currently offered on the Nextel National Network, significantly maximizes our growth potential in the prepaid arena,” said Dan Schulman, President, Sprint Prepaid Group. “Those who have been intrigued with the simplicity and transparency of the Boost Mobile offer will have even more reason to join with our increased selection of network capabilities and phones.”

About the CDMA Handsets

· Sanyo Mirro by Kyocera: priced at $99.99, is a sleek yet affordable phone that is perfect for Boost Mobile customers who value easy-to-use features, connectivity and simplicity. In an attractive, classic flip form-factor, Mirro features a high gloss mirrored Platinum finish with external glow-through caller ID and adds fun and functionality with a 1.3MP camera with digital zoom, Web access, GPS enabled, Bluetooth enabled and instant messaging.

· Sanyo Incognito by Kyocera: priced at $149.99, Incognito is Boost Mobile’s first horizontal flip device and comes in a shiny Silver Chrome color with a “hidden” exterior keypad and OLED display that comes to life with use of the touch screen. Inside, Incognito opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, ideal for social networking and entertainment, and delivers music, video and Web browsing to provide the user with a PC-like experience anytime, anywhere. This exciting phone includes haptic feedback on the exterior touch screen, a 2MP camera with video recording and zoom, direct access to social networking sites, a music and video player and instant messaging. Incognito will be available for purchase later this month on the Monthly Unlimited plan, and for an extra $10 per month, data-centric users can add 3G speed.

· BlackBerry Curve 8330: priced at $249.99, is the first smartphone to join Boost Mobile’s broadened handset portfolio. Available in widespread distribution later this month, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphone on Boost Mobile’s BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plan will include unlimited talk, text, Web and email for $60 per month.

One year ago on January 22, 2009, Boost Mobile introduced Monthly Unlimited, the first unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web and walkie-talkie plan for a prepaid rate of $50 per month on the Nextel National Network. The offer was an instant hit, drawing in over two million new customers in 2009; in third quarter alone, Boost Mobile achieved prepaid net customer additions surpassing those of MetroPCS, Leap, T-Mobile prepaid, AT&T prepaid and Verizon prepaid—combined.

“From the fastest nationwide walkie-talkie technology** on the Nextel network to select Sanyo and BlackBerry handsets that support Sprint’s high-speed 3G networks and offer a robust data experience, Boost Mobile continues to offer a device portfolio that appeals to today’s value-conscious consumer,” continued Schulman.

I see no reason for anyone to be using MetroPcs anymore.
Well I guess except those who don't want to buy another phone.

Re: Boost mobile to offer handsets on nationwide sprint network with ‘monthly unlimit

So before Boost was all iDen and now it's CDMA on Sprint's Network too?
So the only thing stopping current Sprint customer's with the Unlimited $99.99 plans from coming to this plan is the:
1. Current Sprint contract (which after four months the person would be in the black)
2. Only those handsets mentioned are allowed to be activated into the CDMA Boost system.

Does this mean Boost CDMA is considered mobile to mobile and will no longer reduce the minutes of current Sprint customer's with grandfathered plans (i.e Sero, F+F, etc)?

I don't think they ever stopped CDMA. It just wasn't offered everywhere. Now it will be.

Re: Boost mobile to offer handsets on nationwide sprint network with ‘monthly unlimit

This was brought on by the success of Boost Unlimited on the Iden network. The cdma side was never shut down, they just stopped offering the phones on the Boost website.

And as a side not, alot of the people on Boost have successfully activated Sprint branded phones on Boost. Most notable phones where the HTC Touch Pro, Touch Pro 2 and Mogul. Users were able to activate them with full data and mms working with 3g speeds. Even got sprint navigation to work all for $50.
