Sprint subsidiary Boost Mobile announced that it is offering a new $50 per month calling plan. The new plan, called Monthly Unlimited, will give customers unlimited voice minutes, SMS, wireless Web and PTT services for $50 per month. This new plan is specifically for the Boost's iDEN network. The new plan will be available beginning January 22, and Boost plans to launch new handsets that will be compatible with the service, including at least one new bar-style phone. Boost hopes this new plan will better compete with MetroPCS and Leap.
I have a Nextel phone and I love the service out here. I seriously thought about extending my contract for another two years with the simply everything plan on iden only because I will not settle for anything less when it comes to the voice/call quality. Now seeing this plan coming from the Boostmobile side, why would anyone in their right mind pay more than $50 for anything from Sprint for iden only service? I don't get it. If Sprint does this I will be there in a heartbeat.
