Samsung Galaxy S5 now available at Boost and Virgin Mobile
If you like to buy your flagship smartphones without signing two-year contracts with carriers, here’s some very good news for you. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is now available at both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
Sprint’s prepaid brands are offering you the chance to own a Galaxy S5 for $599.99. That’s steep pricing undoubtedly, but keep in mind that it doesn’t come with contract-like strings attached. So there’s that.
Inside, this is the same Galaxy S5 you know and love (or hate), there’s nothing new about it. Only now it can be bought from Sprint’s prepaid brands.
At Virgin Mobile, plans for the Galaxy S5 start at $35 per month. For that amount, you get 300 minutes, unlimited messaging, and unlimited data. For unlimited everything, you’ll need to pay $55 per month, but do note that only 2.5 GB of traffic each month is at full speed, after which you’ll get throttled.
At Boost Mobile, the Galaxy S5 can be had with plans starting at $40 per month. That will net you unlimited talk and text, as well as 500 MB of high speed data. $50 per month makes that 2.5 GB, and for $60 per month you can get 5 GB of high speed data.
