Boost Mobile Announces Moto G Available On Its Pre-Paid Networks in Coming Weeks

moto-g-press-widescreen

If you were less than impressed with Verizon’s announcement of the Moto G this morning, maybe Boost Mobile’s will be more for you. One of the largest pre-paid carriers in the country that runs off of Sprint’s network, announced today that Motorola’s low-cost phone will be coming to its network for $129.99 with no annual contract.¬†

Boost is hoping to entice consumers over to its network by offering the Moto G on its $55 Monthly Unlimited plan which has no contract attached. This plan also rewards people who make their payments on time, your monthly costs drop $5 per month each time you make six payments on time. You can end up with a Moto G and a monthly payment as low as $40 if you keep up on your payments.

The Moto G will be available through Boost’s online website starting¬†Tuesday, Jan. 14 and in select stores around the country starting Jan. 20. Any readers looking at taking up Boost Mobile to carry their Moto G?

    I’ll stick with my htc desire 601 that I paid $180 for on cyber monday. $35 a month on virgin mobile with 4glte, removable battery, and micro sd slot. The only plus to the moto g over the desire is a quad core 1.2 ghz processor compared to the htc’s 1.4 ghz dual core. Also the price on the moto g is better. The moto g is not available on virgin mobile. I would try one if it were but I know it would be slow being only 3g on sprint’s network. Sprint’s 4glte is popping up more and more in my area of central nj.

    Why not just buy the Verizon prepaid version of the phone? Not only is the Verizon version of the phone $100 which is $30 less than what boost is selling it for, but with Verizon you also get a way better network in terms of coverage, and Verizon’s 3G is about 2-3 times faster than Sprints 3G. Sure Verizon prepaid might be $15 dollars more than Boost or only $5 dollars more if you choose the lowest plan but the coverage and reliability Verizon has to offer sure makes up for that higher cell phone bill.

    This is pretty nice because boost mobile is pretty popular here in my area. I bet it would sell for the sake of the colors and the price. Making Motorola relevant. Meaning people in the future will find moto and the x apealing. Thus, competition :) If this actually works out, I would of never guessed Motorola to be back in the game for a mid range phone :p

    Any word if it’s able to get on sprints 4G

    FML !!! I bought the $200 for my gf and made her switch from Boost Mobile to Straight Talk.

    She was one payment away from $40 per month plan too!!! FML FML! now I am making her pay $45 per month with a shady MVNO and I could have paid only $129. GRRR

    At least AT&T is faster and more reliable than Sprint. That’s good, I guess.

      I been hearing straight talk is shady but no one has ever explained it to me. Any examples of them being shady? I just got off of verizon and my wife is on straight talk and I’m on T-Mo pre-paid. I was thinking about switching over to ST because they have LTE over here and Tmo doesn’t. But if they are that bad I’ll probably just stay with T-Mo.

    Would say that Republic needs to get this on their network, but they already have a heavily discounted Moto X, so it’s kind of hard to make that argument. Still, if they could line this up with a price of $100, I bet they’d really get some converts.

  • Eddie J Camacho

    Thing that sucks about this is theres no Sd card slot nor able to remove the batteryto put an extended one, now the moto X is on sale off contract for $399 but the lack of sd card slot keeps me away :( and I hate sticking Verizon overpriced plans, with no benefit to the customer

      This phone is meant for a budget. I’m pretty sure that someone who needs a phone that won’t break their bank won’t care that they can’t remove their battery or add a mSD.

      So,,,,it’s like every other phone on the market except a few Samsungs? It’s time to move on from external storage. I didn’t want to let go either but the little OTG cables help.

  • Kahsay Cooley

    Welcome back to the top moto we missed you since the OG droid. :) P.S. don’t make us deal with Samsung anymore please.

  • Jose

    I am going to buy one and not activate it with a SIM. Perfect “IPod” for my 6 year old.

    Moto Takeover…

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    Moto really is going to run things.

  • PuttsMoBilesiCit

    Nice to see carriers picking up a more quality of a phone for prepaid at a more reasonable price than these other garbage brand phones that they currently have.

  • Alec

    I wonder what percentage of people are going to buy a Moto G even though they don’t need one lol. I would just buy one and not use it with a sim so it’s basically an Android iPod Touch sort of thing.

    • silver_arrow

      I’m thinking of doing that for my dad and if i’m not going to use the radios mind as well get one of the cheaper CDMA ones.

    • Jose

      That’s me, not going to activate it with a SIM. It’s going to be the perfect “IPod” for my 6 year old.
