Boost Mobile vs Sprint

A year ago-ish, my Blackberry started to fizzle.  I loved that phone, yet was no longer in contract at Sprint and thought I’d look around to see what I could find out about saving me some dough.

The following videos chronicle my journey (the final video was filmed 5/6/13):

Sprint vs Boost Mobile: Final Edition

Shrinking Payments…that’s what the plan is called.  I noticed I said I started with $60 plus tax, when in reality I started with $55 plus tax.  I was paying about $60 total for the first six months.

Let’s break down the math.

Year One savings:

Sprint @$120 x 12 months = $1440

Boost @ $60 x six months, then $55 for the next six months = $690

Total savings first year: $750 – $120 cost of phone = $630!

Year Two Savings:

Sprint @$120 x 12 months = $1440

Boost @$50 for six months, then $45 for the last six months = $570

Total savings for Year Two = $870!

In the first two years, what a typical contract runs, I will save a whopping $1500!

Raise your hand if you could use an extra $1500 bucks.

Not convinced you want to switch?  That’s OK. There is no pressure at Oh, Mrs. Tucker!

Again, I am not getting paid for this post.  I just love saving money, get giddy really, and wanted to pass along an amazing product and bargain to boot.

How is the service compared to sprint? As well isn't it pretty expensive for your first phone with boost compared to other networks with a new two year agreement?

The phone service is identical. I haven't noticed anything different in how I can make my calls or receive them (other than when towers are scarce, like in West Texas). As far as customer service, I can't talk to that because I've never had an issue that needed attention.

The phone cost is fully upfront. Mine cost $100, but I'm looking at the new S3 Galaxy and it runs $399. But, my svaings has been substantial. I am now paying, with taxes, apprx $50 per month, where as before I was paying $120ish.

Hope this helps.

I have had Boost mobile for 2 years now and have been very happy with it...I'm down to $35/mo + tax for unlimited minutes, texting, internet, etc. Quality of service is the same as any other cell - depends on where you are.
