Samsung Galaxy S III, sans contract, coming to Virgin and Boost; Boost Mobile Wallet is here
Boost Mobile Wallet, an app powered by Wipit, is now available from the Google Play Store. The app turns any Android phone on the Boost network into a virtual wallet. Customers can load cash into the wallet at Boost Mobile authorized dealers, send money to 135 countries, and pay the bill from more than 3,500 companies in the U.S. As a convenience, the app can be used to 'top off' pre-paid wireless accounts both domestically and internationally. You can also transfer funds between accounts and checks can be loaded from the phone with instant access to approved funds. In addition, those who open a Boost Mobile Wallet account will be given a Visa debit card that is linked to the Mobile Wallet account and will the user to withdraw funds from an ATM machine.
While the app is now available to be downloaded, the Mobile Wallet service is only working in L.A., San Diego and parts of New Jersey. A national rollout will start later this year.
