Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, Rush, and Array hit Boost Mobile

There's a couple of Samsung phones coming to Boost Mobile in the 4G universe, the first being the Samsung Galaxy S II with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the second being the Galaxy Rush. There's also the Samsung Array, a QWERTY keyboard device with a 2.0 megapixel camera and a 2.4-inch LCD display - that's not quite a smartphone like the other two, but it's ready for the carrier's $45 Talk & Text Unlimited Plan anyway. The Galaxy S II is coming with Ice Cream Sandwich for the first time EVER as well - unless you're a hacker, of course.

Boost Mobile Increases International Features for only $5 Per Month

It wasn't too long ago that pre-paid cell service wasn't all that enticing. People would tend to go out of their way to try and sign that two, or three-year (depending on your location) contract, just to make sure that they got the cheapest price for their phone, and the full power of the wireless carrier's network. Now though, services like Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile are stepping up their game, providing not only the price to become competitive, but also the features that people look for. This time, Boost Mobile has introduced a brand new pricing scheme for their International Connect feature.

Whether or not Microsoft's KIN handsets have GenUpload appeal or not, one thing just about everyone outside of Verizon agrees on is that the carrier has priced the featurephone's data plans too highly.  Ideal time for Sprint to leap in with some massively impressive prepaid offerings, using its Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile acquisitions to target the youth market, those looking for affordable, contract-free unlimited service, and even those wanting cheap BlackBerry BIS support (from $35 all-in, voice and text included).

Sprint have announced their Q2 2009 financial results, and while there are glimmers of hope in the shape of ongoing prepaid customer growth and stable post-pay revenue, the take-away figures are a loss of 257,000 customers over the three month period and a net loss of $384m on revenues of $8.1bn.  That revenue is down 1-percent from Q1 2009, and down 10-percent on Q2 2008, though Sprint did manage to pay off $700m of debt (although it still owes $16.4bn).

Virgin Mobile announces new minute plans, including $49.99 Unlimited plan, Pink Slip protection, Texter’s Delight

Virgin Mobile has followed suit with every major carrier (and apparently the American automakers too) in the rush to offer deals to consumers in this time of economic crisis. Virgin has announced a new Unlimited minutes plan for $49.99 and "Pink Slip Protection" which waves up to three months of phone bills if you lose your job. Pretty sweet deal for those of you who shy away from contracts and aren't concerned with having the latest and greatest phones.
