Last year we’ve seen some dominant performances out of pre-paid/no-contract providers after the start of the world-wide economic downturn. We’ve seen a surge of post paid customers switch over to popular no-contract providers such as Boost Mobile – which offered one the of best unlimited plans at $50 per month. New or existing Sprint prepaid customers will soon be able to get into that same deal when January 13, 2010 rolls along. Boost Mobile, part of the Sprint Prepaid Group, has announced its popular $50 Monthly Unlimited plan will be available on the Nationwide Sprint CDMA Network – that’s roughly reaching over 274 million people. As we’ve reported previously, Boost will also be offering their customers three new handset – the BlackBerry Curve 8330, Kyocera’s Sanyo Mirro, and the Sanyo Incognito. One thing to point out, however, is that the BlackBerry Curve 8330 will require Boost’s $60 BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited Plan. It’s becoming a bit interesting to see these no-contract providers offering some sweet smartphones – with Boost doing an excellent job in providing a decent mix. We’ll see if these handsets or the availability of the $50 Unlimited Monthly Plan on Sprint will muster up a decent performance of the ailing number three wireless provider.
