Boost Mobile Complaint - Boost Mobile's severely limited "unlimited" plan for Blackberry users
If you have a Boost Mobile Blackberry Curve with their $60 per month unlimited plan, then you cannot receive phone calls unless you are within Sprint's 3G service area. Furthermore, you cannot make a phone call on a Boost Mobile Blackberry Curve outside Sprint's 3G coverage area unless you speak to an operator and charge the call to a credit card. This is true even if you have five bars on your phone.
I recently bought a Boost Mobile Blackberry Curve. These phones use Sprint's 3G network and require you to sign up for the $60 per month unlimited plan. All well and good. However, after you buy the phone and the unlimited plan you discover that to make a phone call anywhere outside the Sprint 3G service area (quite a large area--look at their map), such as from your home for example, you must use a credit card to complete your phone call. This is true even though five bars may be showing on your phone. Friends who have Boost Mobile phones are able to make and receive phone calls from my home. But because I bought a Boost Mobile Blackberry Curve, I CANNOT make phone calls from my home unless I charge them to a credit card. Furthermore, even though there are five bars on my phone at home, I cannot RECEIVE phone calls there either.
If you are considering getting a Boost Mobile Blackberry Curve, please take into consideration this unwelcome limitation of their "unlimited" service plan.
