Boost Mobile to Offer Four Lines of the Unlimited Gigs Plan For $100


Sprint's Boost Mobile has notified dealers of a new 4 lines for $100 family plan promotion that's starting tomorrow February 14.

To get the deal you have to port at least one line from a non-Sprint based operator. The other three lines have to be either port-ins or new activations. Two or three lines cost the same $100 as four. You can add a fifth line for $30 extra. The first line is eligible for a $5/month discount for using auto pay.

All lines get all the same features as Boost's regular Unlimited Gigs plan that costs $50 for the first line and $30 for each additional line and is available to new and old customers without the port-in requirement. Those features include:
  • Unlimited on-network domestic voice minutes and messaging.
  • Unlimited, unthrottled data with the following restrictions: all video streaming is degraded to 480p resolution, all audio streaming is restricted to 500Kbps, all online gaming data is throttled to 2 Mbps, and hotspot, VPN and P2P data is throttled to 2g speeds after 8 GB/month. After 23 GB/month data performance will be deprioritized when the network is congested. 
  • 50 minutes/month of domestic voice roaming.
The new family plan promotion is available at Boost dealers from Feb 14 until March 14, 2017.  The 4 lines for $100 offer can be combined with another dealer only offer that gives new Boost customers a free Alcatel Dawn, LG K3, Kyocera Hydro Reach, LG Tribute HD, Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) or Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge (2017 Android phone or a discount on a higher priced phone. Discounted phones include a $29.99 LG X Power, $99.99 iPhone 5s 16 GB, $199.99 iPhone SE 16 GB and a $249.99 iPhone 6 16 GB.

  1. If I'm understanding this correctly, this offer is only a good deal for those who need three or four lines. Otherwise, two lines would cost less without this promo.

  2. Good Sprint service where I am but I would have to buy new phones to even try it. I won't do it (staying with GSM).

    1. "Very tempting but hell no. Don't want to deal with the Sprint network."

      I know what you mean. But then you realize it only looks good on paper, and all the plan's data promises don't mean a thing when there is such a limited area of the US where the Boost data can be used.

      With a network twice (or more) as big, Cricket more than matches Boost.

  6. There are better coverage with better deals than Sprint/ Boost. Choose Boost for small areas or choose Cricket or Verizon for bigger areas? Yes, you know the answer.

      And considering Boost's owns infamous coverage map (which shows it with coverage only in a tiny fraction of the US), most of the country is indeed "small areas without Sprint")

  7. I have Cricket service which runs on AT&T's network using the $70 unlimited plan for about 3 months now and don't have any complaints. I have been using my Idol 3 to tether my phone to my pc so I can use it for internet service and have been averaging between 100 gigs - 125 gigs a month for the last 3 months and have no issues

    1. yes, i called boost yesterday to confirm. same as the $50 unlimited gig plan. The primary line qualifies for the $5 discount with auto reboost so its actually 4 lines for $95!, HD unlimited streaming, 8g of mobile hot spot.

  9. The problem with this promo is that, unlike port-in promos from any other carrier, Boost requires that the number you're porting-in have been active on another carrier for at least 90 days. It's a classic Sprint practice to put up unnecessary barriers to sign up new subscribers. I wonder if that's the reason Sprint is the number four national carrier out of a total of four!

    1. How do they know how long it's been active? If the previous carrier is telling them then that sounds like a violation of privacy lawsuit just begging to happen.

      Delete
    2. Boost's actual requirement is that the number has to have not been used on the Sprint network for 90 days which is something Sprint knows.

      Also what carrier a number is on is available from most free and paid reverse phone directory services. I guess the number alone isn't considered protected personally identifiable information.

      Not really. They are just looking to weed out those who are spawning fake accounts just to take advantage of porting deals.

  10. You could get a cheap paygo phone from a Tmobile/Verizon /Att based carrier mvno, activate paygo via something like Lyca paygo (Tmobile), H20 paygo (att), Page Plus paygo (Verizon) then port that in for the disount too potentially and get the lower price. The Verizon postpaid $80 one line unlimited everything, $45 a line for four lines unlimited everything is having a huge impact already. All the other postpaids and Boost and Metro have all changed plans less then a week after Boost already had a change. The only guys still not changing are Cricket and Tracfone but I bet they'll be the next guys impacted. I don't know how the smaller indies will handle it. The good thing is most people are okay without unlimited many times and many people enjoy the much lower costs of low to moderate data plans from $20 to $35 say.

  13. I would appreciate some advice.

    Every time Boost has a great in store only promotion I contact the Boost dealers in my area. They never honor the promotional price on Boost phones. This has happened three times over the last 15 months.

    These are small independently owned dealers. This costs Boost money because they are losing customers due to greedy dealers.

    Given my inability to locate an honest Boost dealer in my area, is it likely Boost would offer me this pricing through their website?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. If Boost dealers are the ambassadors of this cellular division, they have left the impression of Boost as a rather despicable country.

      Boost going online and big-box only would probably give their reputation and business a ... ahem... "boost".

    2. I have a couple boost stores, We have to honor any promotional price.

    3. "I have a couple boost stores, We have to honor any promotional price."

      Someone selling Sprint actually has a good reason to be anonymous.

      And no doubt you are contacting us with a Verizon phone, because even people who sell Boost actually want to be able to use their phones.

  14. Hey guys we just got word today that the LG Power X is free for port in as well, I just gave away 5 of them to metro pcs port in customers.

  15. How dose the 4 free phones work?

    ReplyDelete
  16. people are so crazy this isnt desperate at all its a great promo and as for the ninety day with your existing carrier, it is to ensure that you can be dependable not to carrier hop. as so many do to get a free phone every month.. and you can switch from any company and at the least you would still save 1200.00 a year minimum.. im very happy with boost and sprints service..

  17. I was with Boost a few years back and was always charged the flat monthly rate. I recently returned to Boost and found out AFTER THE FACT through my bank statement that they now charge taxes and fees to your monthly payment. They used to not do that and when I called customer service, I was told they have ALWAYS charged taxes LIES, LIES, LIES Needless to say, I have left the company for good!

    1. People don't have to use AutoPay with Boost.

    2. Boost didn't change, your state started charging a tax on prepaid airtime. Boost has always charged applicable state and local taxes on airtime. More and more states have enacted a point of sale tax on prepaid. For example, California had not taxes on prepaid until Jan 1, 2016 when they stated collecting the MTS tax of between 7% and 24% on all prepaid airtime purchases.

    3. "People don't have to use AutoPay with Boost."

      People don't have to use Boost, period. There are 3 networks that are a lot better.

  18. I went to two Boost stores. They both told me that the offer was only for MetroPCS and Cricket customers and that the T-Mobile and Verizon lines I wanted to bring to Boost were not eligible.

    No amount of explanation would change their mind.

    In addition. they both told me that they would charge a $25 activation fee for each line and I'd be required to purchase insurance on each phone ($7/month) for at least one month. I asked why I would have to buy insurance on phones I already owned, but they had no answer.

    The phones are now on Cricket. 4 lines (unl/unl/3GBLTE/unl128k) for total of $100 (incl tax & fees).

    1. So educate me, you typed the phones are now on Cricket, were you able to keep your existing phones and just switch your lines to Cricket on their family plan?

  19. Like to pay one activation fee. Bringing 4 lines from Cricket. Anyone know of a Boost dealer in Northern California that will not insist on charging me $25 activation for each phone. I've been to 3 dealers with no luck. Thanks!!!

      It sure doesn't seem like Boost dealers aren't willing to help you in your quest to downgrade.

  20. Just sign up with boost mobile yesterday and all seems good for now. I'm in the Tampa market and Sprint has excellent service. Boost mobile with 4 lines with unlimited data and auto paid is a great option. One final note, the free phone LG X power is a decent phone especially for free.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Is all four phones free or just one ? Do you have to pay the $15 activation and first bill of $100 or how does that work ?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ok the deal is one port in and you get four free lines correct for $100 ,I was charged $260 for this deal and was explained the $100 was for the first month then $15 activation for each phone and I guess I had to pay for the rest of the phones so did I suppose to get them for free ?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I signed up for the 4 lines for $100 but only had three phones. The 3 weeks later I wanted to add the fourth phone and was told I couldn't. I did not get any free phones either nobody in the shop even mentioned that part and it cost me $25 for each activation, I get the feeling I was ripped off.
    Looking to get out of the deal or should I say lack of deal.

  24. To all who want to complain about boost services the only thing I can tell you is that I don't know where the heck you live. I have metro service right now and can barely get service anywhere. I don't live very close to a big city where I can get service from every carrier or there. U do know however that I have three family members who have boost and they get service where we live unlike I do. They get service at my house and there's when no one else with any other service can. As a matter of fact people have made jokes about having one walking stone there can stand on to get service where I live and I can't even get service there. I have known a couple of people with at&t service to be getting better reception out her but my sister who had the oh so great Verizon can't get service anywhere in this area. So those of you looking for phone service that is adorable and gets great service there only thing I know to tell you is ask around. Ask friends and neighbors especially if they travel who they have and how their service is everywhere!!! I've learned not to trust "maps" or even people's opinions on comment boards like this one. Some people have their opinion and that's it nothing will change it. Others have had something bad happen with another carrier and will never have another good thing to say then. Do your own research.
