Okay, Mr. "Insert Witty Name Here" is WRONG. Boost minutes go up in smoke 90 days after activation, for ever (or until they change it :-). He's probably misreading the following from the FAQ:

You will need to recharge at least once every 90 days to keep your account active. If you don't recharge within 90 days, any unused credits after 90 days will be forfeited and you'll have 60 days to recharge your account to avoid your account being terminated. Once terminated, you will lose all your numbers (PTN and Boost Walkie-Talkie).

Here's the story version: You buy your phone, have $10 in credits, use up $8 in the first 89 days, so your balance is $2. On day 89 you buy a Reboost card, do the ADD thing, and now your balance is $22. THAT'S how it works. They just remember the last day you reboosted, and how much money you have.

The 60 days starts with you running out of money. You can do this the easy way, by not reboosting on by the 90th day from your last reboost, or the other easy way Smile by just talking your balance down to $0. You then can't make calls, and if you don't reboost by the 60th day, you LOSE YOUR PHONE NUMBER and have to reactivate (which involves an extra charge, IIRC).

Hope that helps...
