Updated: Boost Extends and Sweetens Free Boost CDMA Phones For iDEN Users Offer



Updated: Boost has extended the free phone offer for iDEN users switching to CDMA until November 17th. In addition additional free phones are available and credit toward any other Boost phone has been doubled from $50 to $100. Read on for the updated details.

If you're still rocking a Boost iDEN (Push to Talk aka Walkie Talkie) phone now might be the time to switch. The iDEN network is shutting down in June of 2013 and it looks like Sprint wants to move Boost iDEN subscribers to CDMA as quickly as possible. On Monday, Boost announced increased rates for iDEN holdouts on November 7th. Any users still left on  iDEN can get a free phone or $100 credit for switching to a CDMA phone.

Here's the deal, current Boost iDEN subscribers can get a free Kyocera Innuendo QWERTY clamshell (reg $59.99), Samsung Factor flip phone (reg $29.99), Motorola Theory QWERTY candy bar (reg $29.99), Kyocera Hydro Android phone (reg $99.99), BlackBerry Curve 9310 (reg $99.99) or Samsung Array QWERTY slider (reg $59.99) or a $100 discount off the price of any other Boost CDMA phone. Customers will have to pay sales tax on the the full retail price of the free or discounted phone. The offer is good through Nov. 17th, while supplies last, and only at independent, authorized Boost Mobile dealers. It's not available online or at Radio Shack, Target, Walmart or Best Buy. You can use the dealer locator in the top right corner of the boostmobile.com web site find your nearest Boost Mobile authorized dealer.

    3. First off, no lawsuits are going to happen. Just switch to a CDMA and stop complaining. If you are not happy with Boost, switch to a carrier that will make you happy. But if you read any carriers Terms Of Service, they basically say they have the right to change anything to their service. Boost is offering either a discounted or free phone. Take it. Stop acting cheap.

    1. That's correct. I suspect they do it to insure that the user actually migrates a line from iDEN to CDMA.

    1. If you use any cell phone, government agencies can track you. If you use any phone at all they can listen to you. Shutting down iDEN doesn't change anything about privacy.

  8. Shutting down a network is not against the law. If a company is losing money on a service why should they continue to offer the service.

    1. Yeah there are a lot of people that dropped iDEN. But iDEN was ancient network that was never upgraded. But PTT is coming back some time next year along with 4G LTE. Beside reading that here, a Sprint rep told me that as well. So if people patiently wait, they can get new PTT phones from Boost.

  9. Alternative: Sprint's new Direct Connect on CDMA is a $5 unlimited use option on regular plans. As low as $35/mo. plus reg. tax/fee/surcharges; 2-yr. contract. Phones as low as $50. You get three times the coverage area you had on Nextel.

  10. If stubborn iDen users want to leave Sprint, they now have more options with AT&T:
