Boost Mobile Dealer

Boost Mobile and some help from other MVNOs will ultimately destroy POSTPAID!!! What trips me out is that Sprint PCS will not release a CDMA number to be ported to Boost, only any customers still using iDEN! As if it is a technical issue, really!!! I am watching the Boost service cause customers to migrate from all carriers to save money!!! I just pray that they can keep the price where it is and financially succeed! I read your comment about "unlimited" and it scares me a little. I have sold over 600 boost phones since 1/22/2009 and I really want them to succeed and not to fail the consumer. Go Boost!!!

Unlimited Prepaid Wireless Lives On! NEW
by: Doug

So it’s been some time since this discussion, and it’s now fair to say that the unlimited “all in” pricing model that Boost really pushed has survived! Though, to be fair, earlier this year Boost raised its price from $50 to $55, which is still pretty reasonable, especially when you compare it to the postpaid plans.


I think they needed to do that because of the adoption of smartphones and the heavy data usage (i.e. cost!). Some prepaid carriers have struggled, and the price has gone up pretty much across the board, but not to the point where customers are put off.


Boost definitely didn’t invent this pricing model (in fact, the “disruptive carriers” initially killed the Boost business, but, like Apple, they were able to take good concepts and bring it to the masses. Not sure how they’re doing now because you don’t see Boost in the news much these days, but I believe their financial model is still cruising along.

Sprint CDMA to Boost CDMA
by: PrepaidWirelessGuy

What I believe is still no longer possible is to port (i.e. migrate) a Sprint CDMA number to a Boost CDMA prepaid plan. I would expect that it's only a matter of time before that would become possible though. Has anyone had any other experience with this?

Not true
by: Bill M

Boost Mobile has (or has now) a migration department that can convert a Sprint CDMA line to an Boost IDEN pre paid. I have done 2 of them.

Porting Numbers
by: PrepaidWirelessGuy

It's great to hear that you're having so much success selling the new Boost plan! Your comment regarding people not being able to port Sprint CDMA numbers is interesting...or shall I say disturbing.

It was my understanding that porting a number from postpaid CDMA to prepaid iDEN should be technically possible. Did the agent tell you it wasn't possible?

Also, if a customer wants to save money, or reap the benefits of prepaid, I would think that Sprint would rather have them go to Boost than lose them to another carrier. Or perhaps Sprint is still convinced that postpaid customers are more valuable. I guess in this particular example, it all depends on whether or not a customer will not leave if they can't keep their phone number...?!

Anyway, happy selling; I hope you continue to do well!
