Boost Mobile to Offer iPhone 5s and 5c with $100 Discounts Beginning November 8

Last month, Sprint prepaid subsidiary Boost Mobile announced that it would begin offering the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on Friday, November 8. The company has followed up with a new press release today announcing that it will be offering prices $100 below Apple's standard pricing for unsubsidized models. The launch will mark the first time Boost has officially offered any iPhone model for sale.

iPhone 5s will be available for $549.99 for the 16GB model, $649.99 for the 32GB model and $749.99 for the 64GB model. iPhone 5c will be available for $449.99 for the 16GB model and $549.99 for the 32GB model. In addition, iPhone 4s will be available for $299.99. iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c customers will be able to connect to the Sprint 4G LTE network.

Boost Mobile offers a $55/month contract-free unlimited talk/text/data service plan, although data is throttled once users reach 2.5 GB in a given month. Customers can also reduce their monthly fees by making on-time payments, with Boost reducing the charge by $5 for every six on-time payments made, down to a minimum of $40/month after 18 months.

Boost is not the only prepaid carrier brand to offer discount pricing on unsubsidized iPhone models, as fellow Sprint prepaid brand Virgin Mobile USA is also offering $100 discounts. For customers who do not need unlimited minutes, Virgin Mobile can offer even lower pricing on service than seen with Boost, as Virgin offers plans with as little as 300 monthly talk minutes for $35, or $30 with auto pay.

These deals sound so tempting, but can't help but feel like the service will be terrible. Anyone here from MA use it?
