Boost Mobile is giving its customers an Android 11 phone for $35. Boost Mobile customers that have been awaiting a 4G phone now have a very affordable option which is the Wiko Ride 3.
And the phone is discounted to be sold for $35 from a full retail price of $100.
Following what Phone Arena pin points, the promotional pricing of the phone somewhat extraordinarily applies to the loyal customers that have been purchasing before rather than the new customers.
This is so strange however it is not unanticipated. The CDMA network cease could leave a lot of the customers of Boost Mobile in need of a brand new phone. The customers might also begin shopping for a brand new carrier.
Boost Mobile to Provide Present Customers with a Great Deal
So Boost Mobile has got some additional impetus to provide present customers with a great deal. In the meantime, anyone going from another carrier can receive a free Wiko Ride.
It is not so strange to get a phone at that price, mostly through MVNOs. However, there are oftentimes reconstructed devices or run a former android OS generation. The Wiko Ride 3 is a really great phone as it offers Android 11 right out of the box.
The recent generation, at least for long, as Android 12 arrives soon. The rest specifications of the phone include a 13-megapixel main camera, a 6.09 inch 720p screen, as well as a 3,400mAh battery.
Boost Mobile was gained by Dish Network as part of the T-Mobile / Sprint merger deal last year and it works on the networks of T-Mobile.
Not excluding an older 3G CDMA network that Dish mentions so many Boost Mobile customers still depend on.
T-Mobile plans on closing the 3G CDMA network
T-Mobile plans on closing this network at the beginning of 2022. Dish affirms that the shutdown is earlier than anticipated. And it calls it an unchallenged step that could leave a lot of its customers.
Without any service and blaming T-Mobile for trying its possible best to poach the customers in the act.
Dish has as well called out both the federal and the state governments to intercede and hinder the shutdown. However, for the time being, it seems like it is stockpiling on low-cost options for those who may be needing a brand new 4G device soon.
