Boost Mobile Unveils New Four Unlimited Gigs Lines for $100 Switcher Offer

Boost 4 Lines For $100 Banner

Sprint's Boost Mobile prepaid brand launched a new multi line offer today. Dubbed, "Project Switch", it includes four lines on Boost's $50/month Unlimited Gigs plan for $100/month ($95 with auto pay). To qualify for the offer, all four lines must be new activations and at least one line must be a port-in from a non-Sprint related carrier. The best deal is on four lines at $100. Three or fewer lines also cost $100 and five lines are $130. For one or two lines you are better off with Boost's regular non-promotional Unlimited Gigs plan which costs $50 for the first line and $30 for each additional line.

The Unlimited Gigs plan includes unlimited talk, messaging and data. Like all operator's "unlimited" plans, Unlimited Gigs does have a number of limits. Voice minutes are only unlimited on the the rather sparse Sprint network, voice roaming is limited to 50 minutes per month and data roaming is not available. The Boost website says text roaming is not available either, but I've been told by a Boost corporate communications representative that roaming texting is actually available as long as you haven't used up your 50 roaming minutes. There are more limits on data: video streaming is limited to 480p resolution, audio to 500 kbps and gaming to 2 mbps. After 23 GB of data are used in a month data speeds and availability are subject to de-prioritization during periods of network congestion.

Boost 4 Lines for $100 Rules


Project Switch customers who port their numbers from a non-Sprint based operator are also eligible for a free phone for each ported number. Boost's press release doesn't list the available free phones but I suspect they are same Alcatel  Dawn, LG K3, LG Tribute 5, ZTE Prestige 2, LG Tribute HD, LG X Power, Samsung J3 and Samsung J3 Emerge free phones that Boost dealers been offering for port-ins since April 11.

It looks like the Project Switch plan might be available online, but the free phones for switchers are only available, "in select markets and retailers, while supplies last." That probably means Boost dealers only.

The Boost press release also touts Boost's new "Next Generation Store" concept. Next Generation stores are said to be more streamlined and fashion-forward and will make it easier for customers to learn about Boost phones and promotions. Boost expects to open more than 1,000 Next Generation Stores this year. The video below was shot in a Next Generation store although I can't say it looks much different than any other operator exclusive cell phone store:

  2. I switched to this plan 3 months ago when they first advertised it and I LOVE IT!! 4 lines $100, $95 if you use autopay, can't beat that.I get Excellent Sprint service in my area, better than Metro PCS. The free J3 Emerge that I received with the promotion was ok, I recently purchased the New Moto G5 plus which is compatible with the Sprint network.You won't get any complaint s from me.

    1. Does Boost include taxes & fees in $ stated like MetroPCS, or are they extra?

    2. Boost collects all applicable point of sale taxes. See Making Sense of Taxes on Prepaid Cell Phone Plans and Airtime for more information.

    3. TL;DR: They charge extra.

  4. Why not just do one for $25. Not everyone has 4 lines geez. Does it really matter if 4 separate people pay $25 vs one group of 4 paying $100? Same number of people and lines.

    1. Make it one line for $10, and I might consider it. Sprint's very bad, hardly more than US Cellular coverage isn't worth much. Especially when in a few years, the three other carriers will have several times more coverage than Sprint, and Sprint will have stood still other than doing something pointless like boosting the small area of the country they cover to 5G.

  5. The biggest complaint was always the lack of voice, text AND data roaming, as well as their draconian activation/BYOD implementation.

    They could offer truly unlimited data for free and it still wouldn't matter, not as long as their coverage is lacking and sims can't be swapped to other phones.

    Sadly, they're doing everything in their power to avoid taking the necessary steps to revitalize themselves as a competitive player.

    At this point, Sprint's basically locked itself into a state of perpetual obsolescence.

    Then again, Sprint hasn't had a future in years.

    From the moment they realized they didn't have the money, means or scale to compete with the Big 3, their goal as a regional CDMA carrier has always been to follow in Metro's footsteps.

      Wouldn't be surprised if they plan to hold out for something to go wrong in the Comcast/Verizon tie-up & then start shouting @ Comcast "Hey! Look who's over here just waiting too be bought out!"

      Don't honestly think it would be worth it for Comcast, but that's kinda the only hope Sprint seems to have going for itself nowadays. Although they DO have frequency licenses good for the forthcoming 5G wave so there might be value in that.

  6. I'll be interested when they offer single line plans at $25. Boost doesn't even offer Canada roaming like Cricket and Metro. I also refuse to step into a Boost store, the locations are in dangerous areas.

  7. Good promo for Boost. This should build momentum on their very good Q1, where they just added 180000 subscribers. We would use Boost if they also offered the limited roaming for iPhones, not just Android.

  8. For those wanting the plan at $25 there is a port in promo in store. U pay 1 we pay 1. $50 plan and every other month is free. Pretty cool.

      Wow, that would be great if they allowed BYOSD. Instead they only allow their own crappy devices so they can force those with more discerning taste (& the funds to support that taste) towards their more expensive brands.

      This is why I've moved to TMo MVNO MintSIM - had to pay several months up front, but much cheaper in the end. Only drawback is they don't have unlimited plans or zero-rated streaming. I don't really need those (although I admit they'd be nice), so for ~$15/mo (~$46 for all three of my lines combined) service I'll just carry my media around on an SD card. I'd be willing to go $25/mo per line for BYOD unlimited, but I guess Sprint's just not there yet.

      For limited amount plans, I prefer TMo's 128kbps fallback speed anyway - still allows me to stream music at decent quality.
