Default Plan Change?!

Went to activate my warp and now boost wants to change my plan to a android monthly unlimited? Which is what I already have.

Happen to anyone else?

Guess I know now why they dropped the price :/

Ya it's $55 a month for unlimited everything. And they have the Shrinkage thing, where if you pay your bill on time for 6 months the price drops by $5. So after 18 months of paying on time your bill is reduced to $40. That's $15 cheaper than Cricket, which adds up to $180 a year savings.

Yeah Blue, basically if you had the Prevail(their first touchscreen Android phone)you are grandfathered in with the old plan price. If you upgrade to either the Transform Ultra or the recently released Warp, then you pay $5 more. All new customers pay the $55 as well. So it affects all their clientele. They actually sent out a few texts about it directly from Boost last month about the plan changes.

My shrinkage didn't take effect right away so I emailed customer service and they adjusted it back from $55 to $50 because I was at $45 with prevail. Got my $55 credit yesterday so I only paid $145 for this phone!

So if you bought the prevail and was "grandfathered" the old price plan if in the future you decide to upgrade will they still charge you 5 dollars more or are you still with the old price plan because i have prevail and i just got it so im not planning on upgrading anytime soon, but if i do decide to upgrade this is definitely pertinen information I need to know lol

Should be that you retain your price plan. That's what "grandfathered in" means.

well the only thing i disagree with bost hiking it up by $5 is they say they have the lowest unlim plan but now they have the same plan as metro pcs i mean that what the hook was is that eventually ull pay 5 dollars less then metro but now its like why pay 55 then 50 then 45 then 40 when u can start out at 40? that's all i disagree with

StraightTalk is now a better deal for new Android users. They are $45 a month unlimited everything on Android phones.

BoostMobile would take 3 years to break even. (6m@$55 = $60 more + 6m@$50 = $30 more + 6m@$45 = even + 18m@$40 = -$90)

And StraightTalk is also on Sprint's network.

Updated: And with StraightTalk, you can prepay a year for $499 which makes the monthly costs $41.58 and a break even point of 114 MONTHS / 9.5 YEARS.

Currently, they are on par (in my opinion) with Boost Mobile. However, Boost Mobile continues to update the phones (Prevail now has Gingerbread, the identical Straight Talk phone, the Precedent, is still on Froyo).

Very soon though, Straight Talk will have the LG Optimus 2X. That's a very nice phone to have on a $45 unlimited plan!

More info on that here.

I'm running an EVO 3D on boost, and have the $50 dollar a month plan because the donor phone was not an android. Has worked spot on for me thus far, and after the 18 months, my bill will be $35 bucks. Can't beat that IMO.
