Boost Mobile offers the same great phones, and the same great plans as the other large carriers, but Boost’s plans cost just a fraction of their price and you can change plans or phones as often as you like because you won’t be stuck in an annoying contract. Boost’s mobile plans start at just $35 a month for unlimited talk, text and data all powered by the ultra-fast and ultra-reliable Sprint wireless network. When it all comes down to it, that’s a deal that’s hard to beat!
Boost Mobile also offers the same great phones that you can get anywhere, but unlike the other guys who try to lock you in to the same phone for two years, with Boost you buy your own phone so if you don’t like it you don’t have to wait until they tell you that you can upgrade, you can get a new phone the very same day if you want. With Boost Mobile you can find the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Motorola Moto G, or dozens of other great Android based phones so no matter what type of phone you’re looking for, no matter if you’re looking for a phone for work or play, Boost Mobile is sure to have something that will please everyone.

CUSTOMER QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: Does Boost Mobile have the iPhone 6?
Yes, Boost Mobile carries both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 plus so if you’re an Apple fan you’ll be able to keep up with the latest and greatest iPhones with Boost as well. Boost also carries the iPhone 5S if you’re looking for all the benefits of an iPhone, but for a lesser price.
Q: Does Boost carry Android phones too?
Of course, in fact the majority of the phone selection that Boost carries is made up of Android phones from brands like Samsung, Motorola, HTC, LG and Kyocera, along with a few other brands. One of the nice things about Android is that you can find a phone that is exactly perfect for you as opposed to the iPhone which is more of a one (or two) size fits all phone.
Q: Do Verizon, AT&T or Sprint phones work with Boost Mobile?
Verizon and AT&T phones do not work on the Boost Mobile network. In fact, AT&T uses a GSM technology with their phones which is not compatible with Boost Mobile, who use CDMA technology for their service. For Sprint phones the answer is usually no, but there are circumstances where a Sprint phone may be available for use on the Boost Mobile service. The best thing to do is check with a customer service rep who can look up the specific model number and tell you if you can use it on the service. If you’d rather use your own phone we recommend giving Straight Talk’s bring your own phone plan a try since they allow phones from more carriers.
Q: What Network does Boost Mobile Use?
Boost Mobile uses the ultra-powerful and reliable Sprint wireless network to power their service so it is important to figure out if Sprint has good reception in your area. If Sprint don’t have any gaps in coverage in your area then Boost is probably a good fit for you. If coverage is spotty in your area you might be better off with a service like T-Mobile or Straight Talk wireless.
Q: Does Boost Mobile have roaming?
One of the drawbacks to using the Boost Mobile network is that they do not offer roaming service at this time, so it is really important for you to be sure you have service in your area. If you’re not sure take a look at this map that outlines the Sprint network coverage and see where the gaps are. As a general rule people who live in large metropolitan areas will have better coverage than those of us in rural areas, but that’s not always the case so take a look before you buy.
Q: How strong is their signal?
Signal strength depends on a lot of factors like what type of phone you’re using, where you are located, and where you’re using a phone (inside a steel building vs outside for example), but generally speaking Boost Mobile’s signal strength is better in cities than in rural areas. As a general rule if you have good coverage with the Sprint network in your area then you should have good signal strength from Boost Mobile as well.
Q: Can I buy Boost Mobile phones in stores?
Yes, you can buy Boost Mobile phones and plans in store and of course at BoostMobile.com. Most major stores with an electronics department carry Boost phones including Best Buy, Walmart, Target and Radio Shack. Personally we prefer to buy online because you’re not limited to what a store has in stock and you can get free shipping on almost everything, but if you need a phone quickly then buying in store might be the way to go.
Q: Where can I buy Boost Mobile gift cards?
Boost Mobile cards are available almost anywhere that gift cards are sold, and we see them at the checkouts of most big box stores. Just a few days ago I saw them hanging right next to the magazines at my local Target.
Q: Does Boost charge an activation fee?
No, and that’s one of the reasons why we like Boost Mobile – they don’t nickel and dime you with lots of fees like the mega-sized carriers try to sneak in to their bills. If you ask us that is essentially stealing your money each month and getting away with it. Boost doesn’t do that and we appreciate it!
Q: Can you bring your own phone to Boost Mobile?
It depends on what phone you’re planning on bringing. For most phones and carriers the answer is no, but since Boost uses the Sprint wireless network you might be able to bring certain phones that would be compatible. The best way to answer this question is to either ask a Boost Mobile representative in store or call their customer service hotline at 1-855-364-9032 and they can tell you if the specific brand and model number are available for use on the network. If you already have a phone and are looking for a no contract carrier to switch to, Straight Talk has a much better Bring Your Own Phone plan than Boost Mobile does.
Q: Can I unlock a Boost Mobile phone?
Yes you can unlock Boost Mobile phones. Boost abides by the CTIA voluntary guidelines that were set by President Obama in December 2013 which essentially said that customers have the right to unlock phones that they own. That said, to use a phone on another network you need to be sure the phone will actually work with a new network, as some networks use GSM and others use CDMA technology to power their networks. Boost Mobile uses CDMA so you would not be able to use the phones on AT&T or T-Mobile networks which use GSM for example.
Q: Does Boost Mobile buy phones?
Yes, Boost Mobile does buy back used phones both in store and on their official buyback page on their website. The amount you will get for your phone varies depending on the age, model and condition of your phone, but generally we’ve found that Boost’s buyback values are on par with the rest of the industry.
Q: What should I do with my old phone?
Of course you can sell your phone back to Boost Mobile as outlined in the question directly above this, but if you decide you don’t want to go that route then you could always sell your phone on a site like Craigslist, use it for games or to surf the internet using wi-fi, or you could donate it to charities that would love to have your phone. Some charities use the phones to help soldiers or victims of domestic violence, which are both really great causes if you ask us. If you just want to throw your phone away, please note that it is illegal to dispose of electronics in your trash, so be sure to find an electronics recycling station to both avoid fines and to help save the environment!
