The Apple iPhone 5s is one of the hottest gadgets on the planet. It’s the bestselling smartphone on the market, and features technology which is truly cutting edge. Weighing in at just 3.95 ounces, it is incredibly lightweight, but packs some serious power with its A7 chip with 64-bit architecture and M7 motion coprocessor. The iPhone 5s features a beautiful retina display, an 8-megapixel iSight camera, 1080p HD video recording, FaceTime video calling, and the ability to play back audio, TV and video. The iPhone retails anywhere from around $200 to close to $700, but you may be able to cut back on costs by purchasing it as part of a convenient talk plan with either Boost Mobile or Cricket Wireless.
Boost Mobile and Cricket Wireless offer simple, no-frills prepaid phone plans without a contract. Apple iPhone 5s is already available through Boost Mobile, and is coming to Cricket Wireless soon. Cricket Wireless announced that they would start carrying the iPhone 5s as well as the iPhone 5c on October 25th. Interested customers can visit the Cricket Wireless website to learn more.
Cricket Wireless has still not unveiled their pricing for either model, so how much of a discount may be available is not yet clear. Other iPhones on Cricket Wireless’ site sell in the $400 to $600 range, so this may provide an indication of the price range that the 5s will sell in. Cricket Wireless allows customers the option of paying for phones on installment plans, which can make them much more affordable. This has been the case with their iPhone 4 and 4s as well as their iPhone 5, so it is likely they will offer the same installment option to customers who purchase an iPhone 5s.
While Cricket Wireless was the first prepaid phone carrier to open up shop in the United States, it is hardly alone. Boost Mobile has become a very popular prepaid provider, and they already have the iPhone 5s available for sale on their website at a substantial discount of 30% off. You can select from one of three colors, and may choose 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB. Boost also sells a number of accessories for the iPhone 5s on their site, including cases, chargers, cables, screen protectors and more.
What kinds of plans is Boost offering for customers who purchase the iPhone 5s?
- $55 Monthly Unlimited. With this plan, you can enjoy unlimited talk, text, and data for a flat rate of $55 per month. Boost also has a shrinking payments system, so every month you pay less for your phone plan. Eventually, your payments can drop as low as $40 per month. Boost Mobile uses the Sprint Network, so you can get coverage anywhere—without the hassle of a contract.
- $3 Daily Unlimited. With this plan, you pay $3 a day for unlimited talk, text and data. This is a good plan if you do not use your phone often enough to justify paying $55 a month. Of course, if you are a heavy talker, you may want to stick with the monthly plan to save money.
If you are in the market for an iPhone 5s right now, you may very well want to purchase one from Boost Mobile and save 30% off the retail price. If you have some time to wait, you might want to see what Cricket Wireless is going to offer in October. Both of these companies are great choices for prepaid phone plans which offer unlimited domestic minutes and texts. The Apple iPhone 5s is a very exciting smartphone, and with one of these-no contract phone plans, you can save money on both the hardware and the plan!
