Boost Mobile is run by Sprint and targeted primarily toward the youth and budget markets. The emphasis is on the plan having no hidden fees, and the pricing is competitive — the monthly unlimited plan costs just $50 per month, for example. On top of that, subscribers to this plan get unlimited wireless web use, nationwide walkie-talkie (that annoying feature you hear sometimes and have to listen to someone else’s conversation) and or course, free mobile-to-mobile.
The Boost Mobile Monthly prepaid plan may not boast a network like that of Straight Talk (from TracFone), but it has a sufficient one. Consider also that you get limitless wireless web for web surfing, so if you use your cell phone to access the internet quite frequently, this could be a good thing for you. The walkie-talkie option is another free option that comes with this cheap Boost Mobile cell phone plan.
