In mid–2012 rumors surfaced that Boost Mobile might begin offering the iPhone late in the year. Those rumors didn't come to fruition, but a new tweet from @evleaks (via 9to5Mac) suggests that the Sprint subsidiary might gain the iPhone during the third quarter of 2013.
If the rumor is true, Boost Mobile would become the fourth major prepaid carrier to offer the iPhone after Cricket Wireless, Virgin Mobile, and Walmart brand Straight Talk.
Boost Mobile is known for its $50 per month plan, which includes unlimited talk time, unlimited texting, and unlimited data. With Shrinkage, a reward for paying bills in a timely manner, Boost Mobile unlimited plans can go as low as $35. It is not known, however, if the carrier's current plans will apply to the iPhone.

I was thinking the same thing. Apple also needs to get that cheaper iPhone out there by the end of the year.
