Boost Mobile is a prepaid carrier which is owned by Sprint. Boost has never officially sold iPhones before, despite the fact that the smartphones have been available from Sprint since 2011. That might be about to change though. The infamous Twitter leaker @evleaks has posted purported Boost Mobile ads which point towards the possibility of the prepaid carrier offering both new iPhones, the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c, for sale in the near future.
The leaked ads don’t explicitly mention when both new iPhones are going to be available. No pricing information is present on them, but the ads do suggest that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c might be eligible for Boost’s monthly unlimited plan with “shrinking payments.” Boost won’t actually be the first prepaid U.S. carrier to offer the iPhone. Rivals Cricket and Straight Talk have offered the iPhone in the past, whereas Virgin Mobile will launch the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on October 1st. The U.S. branch of Virgin Mobile is controlled by Sprint. Apple unveiled both new iPhones earlier this month, they were released in select markets on September 20th. Soon after the launch, Apple claimed that demand for both new iPhones is “incredible.” [Image via Twitter]
