Unlimited Everything with Boost Mobile

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

We got Cory a new cell phone on Sunday.  Since the Wisconsin State Fair is sponsored by USCellular (our current cell phone provider) they offer special deals on phones at the fair.  Cory's phone had been acting up, and we wanted him to have something reliable for college.  We managed to find one that he likes that doesn't require any kind of data or Internet plan.  I'm sure he would have liked Internet on his phone so he could easily update his twitter or facebook status no matter where he is, but the cost just seems so high.  $20/month for one phone in addition to the cost just to have the phone, when we've got unlimited cable internet at home for around $40.  So, he's got a new phone that's under contract for the next 2 years, and all he can do with it is talk and text - and take pics and play music, but those things don't cost, unless you want to send them to somebody.

As we were walking away from the booth, I said we really need to check into Boost Mobile, because with Boost you get unlimited everything - nationwide calling, texting, web, picture (and audio and video) messaging, and more - all for $50/month, with no contract.  With a Boost Mobile phone, you can keep in touch with everyone easily - tweet, update facebook, share YouTube videos, check and send email, even make phone calls if anybody still does that.  If, for any reason, you can't make a payment, you have 60 days to add enough money to the account to cover the monthly payment before they'll cancel your account.  So you won't lose your phone number, even if you can't use it for a little while.

To keep the account active, just be sure to put enough money into your Boost account to cover the monthly payment by the monthly due date.  Boost makes it easy to add funds to your account, or Re-Boost.  There are three ways - pay online, pay in person, or pay by phone.  I guess technically, you could pay online using your Boost Mobile phone!  It looks like the easiest thing would be to set up Auto Re-Boost  by registering a credit or debit card, and have it transferred automatically.  I'm a huge fan of those set-it-up-and-forget-it automatic payments!  Right now they're offering a $20 credit for signing up for the auto re-boost.  Friends and family members can make payments, too.  File that under: "what to get the person who has everything" - and then expect a thank you call, or post to your facebook wall!

Boost-branded wireless phones are available nationwide at nearly 20,000 major retail and independent wireless dealer locations, or you can order them online.  Right now Boost is offering free shipping, too.  There are quite a few phones to choose from.  I've just started looking and already found a couple I wouldn't mind having, like the Motorola Bali and the Motorola Rambler.  I wonder if that's because my current phone is a Motorola?  They even have Blackberry phones. I know some people just can't live without their Blackberry!  The Boost Mobile Blackberry plan is $60/month, which is cheaper than the company is paying for Jeffrey's phone right now.  Think of the savings if big companies who want their employees in touch at all times would switch to Boost.

Think of how much money you could save with Boost if you're currently paying extras that are included in the Boost Mobile unlimited plan.  Even better, you could win a free phone and $50 Re-Boost card by entering Boost Mobile's Dream Vacation Sweepstakes.
