Boost Mobile offers to cut your MetroPCS or Cricket wireless bill in half

Boost Mobile offers to cut your MetroPCS or Cricket wireless bill in half
Port over your pre-paid Metro PCS or Cricket pre-paid phone number to Boost Mobile, and the carrier will perform a magic trick similar to one performed by its parent company. Boost, as many of you know, is Sprint's pre-paid pride and joy and the mobile operator (which has managed to stay number three in the states despite a hard-charging T-Mobile) offers to cut in half, the bills belonging to AT&T and Verizon customers.

The deal will be available to new Boost Mobile subscribers until July 20th and those signing up will save $20 to $30 a month for a year. After that period of time is up, Boost will migrate the customer to a plan with a similar amount of data.

Boost is also offering its $30 Data Boost Up plan that gives you unlimited talk and text along with 2GB of high speed 3G/4G data for $30 a month. To sign up for that plan you need to agree to have $30 automatically zapped from your bank account each month.

If you are a customer of either MetroPCS or Cricket, ask yourself if you could use the extra $20 to $30 monthly. Just keep in mind that some of the features and services offered by the two pre-paid carriers might not be available with Boost.

I like how the first picture doesn't even list Metro's $60 unlimited data plan. And there was a sale on Metro a while back, if you have a phone bought directly from them, you could pay $50 for unlimited data. With Sprint's spotty reception in my area, terrible data speeds, and the fact that Metro has only gotten stronger in my area due to the merger with T-Mobile, chopping unlimited down to 10gbs with bad reception for half price is not worth it at all.

Save $20-30? I have Cricket and two lines of 2.5GB high-speed data is $65 w/ autopsy. I don't see how Boost's offering is much better especially considering their terrible network.

LOL. 1. Boost Mobile has bad reception. 2. Metro has amazing reception everywhere I am being we on T-Mobile towers. 3. Boost Mobile's phone lineup sucks a**. The LG G Stylo is offered on both but look at the specs...Metro's is better for the same price Boost and Sprint offers. 4. Metro's does too but its better than Boost and we have BYOD (Bring your own device) therefore I can bring a unlocked phone if I'm not pleased with my phone from Metro.

5 lines with 2.5GB data each for me is $20 a person. When that deal expires, it will be an extra $10 I think. Not sure about Boost but Cricket has no taxes either. I'd rather still be with TMobile instead of evil Att but until coverage improves I'll take the comprimise.

Yeah..... let take a look at the maps. Sprint NATIVE coverage only, I mean at least postpaid they can roam on Verizon. This would be dumb if you do any sort of traveling lol

That said Cricket has the most ignorant and horrible customer service and treats their customers badly, hard to believe AT&T owns them sometimes and its not the best network, but the price for what you get cannot be matched by any other carrier.

I'll pass, maybe if it didn't end after a year. Also would it even factor in group save with cricket?
