It may not be a big deal to anyone outside the US, seeing as Boost Mobile being a CDMA carrier, but the rest might be interested in learning about another BlackBerry device that is coming to Sprint's prepaid division.
Behold, the BlackBerry Style
For those who don't want to jump ship onto Sprint's post-paid plans to get this phone, they finally have a choice of buying it outright on Boost Mobile.
Granted that it *is* $60/month for BlackBerry devices on Boost Mobile, it's still cheaper than what you'd pay on a contract.
Although, Virgin Mobile should have gotten that phone. They're cheaper than Boost Mobile.
It's funny because all of their prepaid devices operate on Sprint's CDMA network.
You can tether on this phone with an app called Tether. It'll cost you anywhere between $25 and $50 to purchase the app after the 7-day trial period, though.
If you want a BlackBerry, but don't want a contract, I'd suggest you wait until they officially announce this item for sale.
I've heard this clam-shell phone is pretty good, too!
Don't like Blackberries and prefer Android?
That's cool! Both Virgin Mobile
& Boost Mobile
offer some pretty sweet Android phones.
Wanna know their prepaid plans, but don't want to visit the website? Look below for detailed pricing.
Boost Mobile (CDMA only)
$50/month (+10 if you own a Blackberry)
With Shrinkage (After a period of months of paying your prepaid bill, it goes from $50 to $35...add $10 for Blackberry devices.)
Virgin Mobile (CDMA devices ONLY.)
$25/month for 300 minutes and UNLMT Txt & Web (+ $10 for BlackBerry.)
Awe, screw it, you look it up.
