Got Friends and Family Across the Globe?

Boost Mobile offers the International Connect which is unlimited international talk and text for an additional $5 per month. How do you beat this? You don't! Nothing can top this prepaid cell phone plan.

Once again there's fine print with these wireless plans. The unlimited class and texting is all of Mexico is for landlines only while calls to Canada does NOT include the Northern Territories. There are additional stipulations i.e. standard rates apply for over 30 other countries.

Pay $10 and you get the International Connect Plus which truly is unlimited in the most part.

How Payment Works

You will have to pay for your smartphone outright because there isn't a subsidy when you have a no contract smartphone. But you have a lot of options when it comes to paying for your prepaid cellular service.

Pay online using a debit or credit card. You can make a one time payment or set up automatic payments. Perhaps you prefer to pay by phone...not a problem. Are you into purchasing a Re-Boost Card? You can input the PIN and you'll be all set. Also, you can pay in person by going to a local retailer which supports Re-Boosting. Lastly, wanna make a payment for someone else without tying your card to their account...go ahead with your generosity.
