Samsung Galaxy S III coming to Boost Mobile June 12th for $399.99
Back toward the end of last month, we told you that Boost Mobile was going to offer the Samsung Galaxy S III. But at the time, we had no pricing information, nor did we know the date of availability. Now, the pre-paid carrier has announced that it will offer the one-time Android flagship model for $399.99 starting on June 12th. The unit offers 4G LTE connectivity which Boost has in 88 markets.

There's nothing wrong with the Samsung Galaxy S III, which can still hold its own against some of today's young whipper snappers. Samsung has already said that many of the features on the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be made available for its predecessor. The phone will be available to use on the pre-paid carrier's shrinking payment plan which starts at $55. For that price you get unlimited talk, text, picture messaging and web. Every 6 on-line payments cuts your bill by $5. The most you can shrink your bill is by $15 to a rate of $40 per month.

Now that Boost has released this information, we are awaiting pricing information and an exact launch date from Virgin Mobil. This pre-paid carrier is also expected to launch the Samsung Galaxy S III some time this month.

I am going out on a limb and predict the Samsung S3 on either Boost or Virgin Mobile will go for $300 around the Thanksgiving Black Friday / Cyber Monday timeframe.

People forget the Samsung Victory came out at $300 and was quickly discounted to $250 and went as low as $180 on sale. While the Victory has decent spec's and is a LTE device, the prepaid market is very competitive is getting more competitive each month. I've been stating for a long time, android devices are commodities.

88 LTE markets at this time, So you are paying $399 for a phone to use on Sprint's horrible 3G prepaid network. I have used both Virgin and Boost. No way would I spend that kind of money for no service.

I have Sprint and Boost is looking good about now. They seem to be working everywhere else except my area!

Im paying $90 for the same service I could get with paying $50.
