All about Boost Mobile
Boost Mobile is a subsidiary of Sprint Mobile and offers its customers lots of pre-paid options that other carriers may not. There are monthly pre-paid plans that you can sign up for, but there are no contracts. That means that the phones are typically more expensive then if you would purchase them through a carrier, but it’s a one time purchase. After that is when you start seeing the real savings.
If you're going abroad, you can use Boost Mobile for good international call and texting deals. If you're not sure which deal is the best for you, look up your nearest Boost Mobile location using their store finder on the official website.

Boost Mobile contributes to making the distance between Cuba and the US even shorter.
Boost Mobile, the prepaid branch of Sprint Mobile, is trying out a new strategy to take advantage of the improved political relationship between the U.S. and Cuba – by offering prepaid plans that give you lots of texting and talking minutes to get in touch with your loved ones in Cuba.
This offer is only available for customers located in Miami at the moment. For people living in Miami, they can get unlimited text and 15 minutes of 33-cent a minute calls to Cuba for $50 a month, alongside 5 GB of data and unlimited texts and calls in the United States.
Why did they choose Miami, anyway? Well, the Florida city is well known for having a large Cuban-American population who are probably interested in getting in touch with people in Cuba.
