Alcatel Dawn Coming to Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA for Only $69.99

Earlier today, Sprint's prepaid carriers Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA announced that they will be offering their lowest priced 2016 smartphone. Available for only $69.99 (plus tax), the new Alcatel Dawn made its launch as a user-friendly smartphone complete with 4G LTE connectivity and a speedy quad-core processor to keep up with you as you stream content, send messages, or play games on your device.

The Alcatel Dawn sports a 4.5-inch TFT touchscreen display, runs on a 1.1GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. There is a 5MP rear-facing camera included on the phone and a 1,780 mAh battery that helps give its needed power. Upon release, this affordable smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and is equipped with mobile hotspot capability.

With the Alcatel Dawn's availability on both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA, you may opt to get the device under one of the plans these two carriers offer. From Boost Mobile, you can choose from either of the following plan options:
  • $35 per month - includes 2GB of 4G LTE High-Speed data (grows to 5GB)
  • $45 per month - includes 5GB of 4G LTE High-Speed data (grows to 8GB)
  • $60 per month - Unlimited 4G LTE High-Speed data
The $35 and $45 data grows up to 3GB more by simply making on-time payments. There's also a $5 monthly discount by enrolling with Auto Re-Boost, unlimited music streaming, and free mobile hotspot. 

Meanwhile, Virgin Mobile USA includes three unlimited plan options that come with data and limitless music streaming:
  • $30/month - includes unlimited data, talk and text and 500 MB of high-speed data
  • $40/month - includes unlimited data, talk and text and 4GB of high-speed data
  • $60/month - includes unlimited data, talk and text and 6GB of high-speed data
Virgin Mobile USA also offers Data Packs as an add-on to the monthly plan. These add-ons are available for $5/1GB and $10/2GB per month. Limitless music streaming is available through Virgin Mobile so you can enjoy services from iHeartRadio, Pandora, 8tracks, Samsung Milk Music, and Slacker. More music-streaming providers are said to be added soon!

    1. Not as good as the Moto E or LG Volt but at least it looks better than the Pixi Glitz.

    I remember reading an article here about Virgin Mobile getting a makeover for a Re-Launch. Just visited VM's website...tell me they haven't relaunched yet...LMBO!!!

    What happened to the sexiest MVNO of 2011? I don't miss them one bit.

  5. Garbage phone for a garbage pp service

  6. A gentle suggestion: Please resist letting ad-copy language such as "only $69.99" creep into the articles and especially headlines.

    It might possibly be valid to say this (journalistically speaking) if it were news instead of salesman hype. Say, that the phone costs $500 usually. But I can't find reference to the "Alcatel Dawn' being sold anywhere else for any price to compare it to.

  7. You know it's a CT article when it's advertising a $70 Sprint smartphone with $20 specs just a few months away from a BF price cut down to $10, even though Sprint's FED check makes it worthless at launch.

    The prepaid hobbyists won't get anything out of it, and the sheep just want their iPhone / Galaxy S.

    This is literally a waste of a phone, as the only people who'd really get a kick out of this are the devs, perk farmers and people who just want a cheap bare-bones wifi-only mini-tablet.

    The point is, none of them will even have any reason to activate it after getting it on clearance from BB, and Sprint will lose out on revenue for activations/service.

    Maybe I'm an idiot and Sprint is really playing some sort of 4D Chess game, but I just don't understand what exactly they're doing at any given time.

    They even nuked their Galaxy S trade in plan, giving customers one less reason to stick with them.

    It's almost like they're trying to go out of business.

    Or they already are.

    1. Lol @ 4D chess game! I think Sprint has a death-wish & wants to take as many people with them as possible. Only a elderly first time user would even look twice at this POS.

  8. That's overpriced. The phone price should be $9.99 or $0.99 with purchase plan.
