  1. None of those plans can beat on price, convenience or service (disclosure: am a customer of and have no other associations or financial interests with the company). My typical monthly cellphone bill is less than $15, which is automatically charged to my credit card at end of month.

  2. It's worth noting that boost and virgin are locked to the sprint network only and do not roam. This is very restrictive in many markets. Normal sprint service roams off the version network when your out of sprint coverage.

  3. I completely agree with you, even at Boost, you can lower your monthly expenses by $15 by adopting Shrinking payment plan...
