Boost Mobile jumped into the limelight earlier this year when it released its Unlimited Monthly Prepaid cell phone plan, which gives subscribers unlimited phone usage.
This looks like a good plan, even though there are some issues with what “unlimited” actually means. Boy Genius report wrote a post asking if Boost Mobile’s Unlimited plan is too good to be true? Apparently, there is some fine print that says Boost prohibits “unreasonable” phone usage. It is up to Boost to decide what is “unreasonable,” I guess.
I think the company will be very careful if they try to cut someone off of their prepaid service plan and that it is only including a clause like this in case of serious abuse of their unlimited service. Competition is high in the prepaid market and appearing to not offer what they claim could hurt Boost Mobile. I’m sure that subscribers who do not make insanely high numbers of calls or hundreds of text messages a day will be fine and will have no problems with Boost’s plan.
Here are the details of Boost’s Monthly Unlimited Plan
