Hey buddy, can you spare a dime?

How low do you have to be to start begging your FB friends to help you pay your phone bill? If any of my friends ever started spamming me with that crap, I'd unfriend them so fast they'd get the notification before Boost disconnected them for non-payment.

Sounds to me like Boost is seeing an increasing number of disconnects and is trying to slow that by any means necessary. I have my doubts as to whether it will work, but it sure doesn't improve the perception of the average Boost customer.

I wonder if one of the responses you can send when you get such a request is, "Get a job, you %#%@^&@ freeloader!"

Well,what do you know??? I happen to be a well paid executive AND a Boost subscriber. You have a problem with that? I just feel that I dont need to burn my hard earned money with a contract,and I have no need to "upgrade" everytime a tweener wants to show off how super huge his screen is,or how fast he can download lady Gaga. Get a life,loser.

I don't have a problem with anyone who uses prepaid, Boost or otherwise. However, I DO have a problem with people begging for others to pay their phone bills, and I'd be willing to bet that many others do, too. So why would Boost launch something so obnoxious, and why would someone actually use it? I mean, if you can't pay your bill, then maybe you ought to look at cutting costs, not bugging your friends to help bail you out. And likewise, if Boost is concerned that a significant enough segment of their customer base needs to bug their friends to pay their bills (and they must think so, or they wouldn't have launched this), then maybe they ought to give them a cheaper option than they currently have or, if that isn't possible, simply let...

I don't know where you grew up but not everyone has led a spoon-feed life

where paying their bills consistently is an easy thing to achieve and work is not easy to get!, but still

require a phone for living! It's just a TOOL to make it easier for some it's not obnoxious

if it HELPS someone out! There are many people in my neighborhood who are really poor

struggling to just pay their minimum expenses. It's not funny to make fun of the poor or those who

don't live as you do.

I use Boost it's all I can afford.

This "Re-Boost" thing sounds like a fast food place giving people who can't afford a hamburger a tin cup so they can stand outside and beg for the money to buy one.

Priceless

You are making it sound like a negative thing sir. This app can be used by subscribers around the holidays for which parents who live in other states can pay for their kids or family members bill without having to transfer funds or take any extra steps all from this one application. Also you said you were going to unfriend the first friend that did this so what is the problem there? Unfriend and move on with life good sir.

Hmmm..... Improper grammar and punctuation.... and claiming to be a "well paid" executive.....Burning "hard earned money"...Not to judge a book by its cover, but who calls them self a well paid executive?.... No my grammar isnt good but i'm also not a "well paid" executive. Could be wrong but this sounds like a boost subscriber trying to make themself sound credible. Specially because there is other prepaid plans through verizon, tmo, and ATT.
