Boost Mobile, the no-contract network affiliated with Sprint, has announced it will soon sell the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, while we’re all keen to know how much it will charge for Apple’s latest smartphones, it’s keeping very quiet about the situation. Visit Boost’s website, and there’s a comparison chart showing the differences between the new hardware and the outgoing models, but no option to buy yet.
That doesn’t mean we can’t do a little speculating. Boost Mobile already sells the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, and it charges $550 for the former, and $450 for the latter. These prices relate to the 16GB model, but if you want a 64GB iPhone 5S, then the price increases to a massive $750. Given that Apple also charges $550 for a contract free iPhone 5S, and the 16GB iPhone 6 starts at $650, we can expect a similar price when it finally arrives on Boost. The iPhone 6 Plus will wear an even higher price tag.
Provided you don’t mind spending that much up front, Boost sells its phones with free shipping and activation. Data and call plans start at $35 per month at the moment, which comes with 1GB data allowance each month. Serious users will want to spend $45 a month to get a very generous 5GB of data. Boost subscribers get to use Sprint’s 3G and 4G LTE network.
The price isn’t the only secret Boost is keeping either, it’s also not saying when the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will go on sale. We’ll have to be patient for the details, but we’ll let you know when it’s all official.
