      I am not what you call a cell-phone power user. I make a few calls to friends and family. I receive some calls for work, but basically there are no plans that fit my usage pattern. After several years of basically giving my money away to Sprint, I decided to look into the prepaid option.

      At the time I was living on the southern California border with Mexico. everyone I talked to recommended Boost Mobile, now owned by Sprint. I decided to give it a try. My current contract with sprint had expired so I promptly cancelled my $70 a month plan and headed to Best Buy. y cell phone needs basically amount to phone and text message capabilities. I don’t surf the net on it or


      download the latest cute little app, so I spent half an hour or so looking for a phone that met my needs. I found it in the form of a Motorola i335. This had the basic functions I was looking for and then some (see my separate review on this phone.) I bought the phone for about $50 which included the SIM card and $5 credit.

      I activated the phone online. I supplied my real information, but for those who are looking for more anonymity, Boost didn’t require any verification of the validity of my personal data. Withing 5 minutes, my phone was active and I was on the way. I was able to choose a local number from anywhere in the United States. I could have ported my ...


      • old number from Sprint but decided to start fresh.

        Now I had to choose a plan. At first I chose the pay as you go plan. If I didn’t use it, I paid nothing. This was generally great for me. Later I found myself using the phone more and more so I switched to the $1 per day plan. This plan gave me unlimited calling and text for $30 per month. Not a bad idea. International texts were free to receive and $.10 to send. Boost also offered a cheap add on plan to allow me to send and receive international texts, as well as discount calling plans to several locations.

        As I travel a great deal in Mexico, Boost also offers free roaming in Baja California, Mexico.

        Absolutely great for those in SoCal who cross th border frequently.

        Recently I moved away from California and to my dismay discovered that the Boost network was not available in my rural area. I began to search other prepaid plans and was shocked at how much more expensive they were than Boost. I quickly dismissed these plans. fortunately I will be bask in Cali soon and can once again use my beloved Boost.

        Just recently, Boost has announced a major upgrade to their service, allowing users to utilize the sprint network. A great service will get even better. I don’ see how other companies will compete against this. Bottom line, if you are in the Boost service area and are looking for a simple, cheap service, boost can’t be beat.
