About Boost Mobile

Boost Mobile redefines value for wireless consumers with its Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage no-contract service where the longer you stay the less you pay with on-time payments for unlimited voice, text messaging, web, e-mail, IM and calls to 411. It offers nationwide service on the Nationwide Sprint Network and Nextel National Network, reaching more than 278 million people, with no activation or long-distance fees.

$50 Monthly Unlimited for unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, 411, and e-mail with no contracts. Voice-mail, long distance, and call waiting included. And you'll reduce your monthly payment the longer you stay with Shrinkage.

monthly unlimited

$2 Daily Unlimited provides all the value of Monthly Unlimited and nationwide coverage at a low daily rate. The $2 subscription charge is automatically deducted from your Boost account each day after midnight, regardless of usage, unless the you cancel the subscription. Recharge at least once every 90 days to keep your account active (after 90 days any credit balance will expire).

Daily Unlimited

Pay As You Go gives the freedom to pay by the minute. All nationwide calls and texts are one convenient rate of 20¢ per minute or 20¢ per text message. You can also add other services such as Internet access (50¢ per day with unlimited usage) and e-mail (99¢ per day with unlimited usage).

International Connect provides unlimited international talk and text with family and friends around the world. It can be added to Monthly Unlimited and Android Monthly Unlimited plans for an additional $5 per month, and added to the BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited plan for $10 per month.

Boost Shrinkage

All Monthly Unlimited plans include Shrinkage and unlimited nationwide talk, text, web, e-mail, and 411. Shrinkage reduces your payment by $5/month for every six on-time payments, up to $15/month in total. Monthly Unlimited shrinks to as low as $35/month, Android Monthly Unlimited to as low as $40/month, or $45/month for BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited.

On-Time Payments

On-time payments are made on or before the monthly payment date. Your monthly payment date remains the same every month as long as you successfully make your monthly payment. However, if you make a late payment, your payment date will be reset to the day of the month before the date your service is restored (e.g., if your service is restored on February 15th, your monthly payment date will be reset to March 14th).

Missed Payment

While it's best to make regular on-time payments each month, payments do not have to be consecutive. If you miss a payment you don't have to start over. The on-time payments made to the account will still be available as well as any savings milestone achieved.

If I could, I would have rated it 3.5. The Theory is an impressive looking phone with a nice screen and an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard, although the Call and End keys are awkwardly placed and sized. Calls are nice and clear, and my reception and data speeds (2.5G) are pretty good considering I'm on the very edge of Boost's coverage. Battery life is better than I expected too. However, there are several drawbacks. The web browser is bad. It's ugly, every page you view has a heavily pixelated advertisement at the top, and you get a bare-bones rendering of any website you go to. I would highly recommend downloading Opera Mini and using that as your browser instead. The camera also leaves much to be desired. Even at the Theory's highest resolution, photos are small and of poor quality when you get them onto a computer (USB cable is not supplied); I frequently have to override the white balance "auto" setting to get proper color correction; photos are often overexposed--even indoors with the exposure at -2--and there's no flash. Without a video camera and music player, this is a poor multimedia phone. If you just want to text/talk/surf (through Mini) on a phone that has that Blackberry style, it's a worthwhile buy, but only through Boost: the Theory is definitely not a phone you would want to get locked into a contract for, unless you were getting it for free.

I bought my phone at Target but I still wanted to leave a review. I am sure there are others who use amazon reviews for new products whether they purchase through amazon or not.

I have had this phone for about 2 weeks now and I am pretty happy with it so far. I downgraded a little. I was first using a Samsung Gravity Touch and then a HTC HD2 (which is what I was using when I ditched the contract and got the Theory). I thought I would miss the features of my touch screen phone but I actually don't. I am personally happy to leave the pressure of using an advanced, trendy phone behind and to go back to something basic.

This phone has no music player feature which is ok with me. I carry a mp3 player with me all the time anyway. But the camera is POOR. I like to take a lot of pictures and upload them to Facebook so this is a bit of a set back. I know have to carry my camera with me if I want decent pictures.

Also...although I can text easily (even with having large hands and fingers), I can't text much in one text. Maybe there is a way to get around this but each text only allows 160 characters which limits you if you tend to send long thoughts in a text as I do.

Other than that, I am pleased with the phone. The browser was not that great either but I download Opera Mini and it has improved.

I got my phone today and I'm liking it alot more that any other boost phone I've had. I had the Clutch before and this is a bit like an updated version with some of the fail taken out of it. The web browser is much better and the over all phone looks nice and sleek, and it's very light. Oh and I'm really picky abotu how my QWERTY keyboards feel on my phones and this one is really nice and doesn't bum up your fingers. Screens nice too, so overall great phone so far.

After getting out from under a 2 year prison term with ATT, I found this Motorola from Boost. I didn't want a lot of bells and whistles but nothing to plain either. This handles both worlds. Easy to understand, feels well made and I like the Blackberry look. Just starting to see what this phone can do, but I can tell you this...I'm never going back to a contract!

I got this phone just 4 months ago. The calls are nice and clear. Its very user friendly. Not much in the way of selection for ring tones and no micro sd slot. The camera is great if you are outside and have lots of light. If you don't it is horrible and dark. I also don't like that it doesn't automatically start another page of text when you reach the maximum 160 characters. Also you can't respond to emails through the preset location for email and im. You have to set up your email through the internet and save the page as a favorites in order to respond. Because of this you are not alerted when you receive an email.

All that being said it was still a functioning phone. Nothing fancy. After four months of use during a phone call my ear piece speaker went out. Zip, nada, zero, no sound at all. DURING A CONVERSATION! If I am going to talk to someone on the phone I have to remember to either answer the call through the speaker phone or turn the speaker phone on before dialing or I am listening to air.

Oh and another complaint. The battery life stinks. I sometimes am down to yellow one bar battery by one in the afternoon. I don't even turn my phone on most days until 10 to 10:30. I am not in any way abusive to my phone. I set it down, not thrown or dropped onto the counter or coffee table. I only plug it in when the battery is low. I realize I am odd in that I turn it off every night too! So I was very upset that my speaker went out and the battery is sucking the life out of itself so quickly.

My husband has the same phone and had it for one day longer then me. He works in a place that is very dusty and dirty with dry chemical ingredients flying about and his phone works okay. Though his battery life is beginning to decrease rapidly in just the last week or two.
