Wave7 Research, on November 1st, Boost Mobile will resume offering free phones to customers who port their numbers to Boost at a Boost Mobile dealer. Switchers can chose between an Alcatel Dawn (list $39.99) or an LG K3 (list $49.99, currently $29.99 to switchers), subject to availability. The free phone promotion requires activation on Boost's $50 ($45 with autopay) unlimited plan and the switching customer must have been on the non-Sprint carrier they are switching from for at least 90 days.
In other Boost News, Sprint's prepaid brand will also launch a new $35 ($30 with auto pay) plan on Nov. 1. The new plan will include unlimited voice, messaging and data with the first 2 GB at high speed. The $35 plan will be available as a family plan at $60 for two lines, $90 for three lines, $120 for four lines and $150 for five lines. The family plan prices quoted are with auto pay, prices are $5 higher without.
Boost's current $30 ($25 with auto pay) unlimited plan with 1 GB of data will be deemphasized and dealers will no longer receive a commision for selling it, essentially killing it in the dealer channel.
