Boost Mobile to sell iPhone 5c and 5s starting Nov. 8

Another pre-paid wireless service is adding the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s to its roster of devices: Boost Mobile announced Monday plans to begin selling the new iPhones beginning November 8, 2013.

Boost Mobile has posted a web page listing the new devices and offering comparisons, along with a link to their service plans, which include $55 "monthly unlimited" - which provides unlimited talk, text and 2.5 GB of high-speed, along with a $3 "daily unlimited" plan.

The company did not offer details about iPhone pricing, but as a pre-paid carrier, you can expect that Boost Mobile will sell the phones unsubsidized, which means you'll pay $549 for a base model iPhone 5c and $649 for a base model iPhone 5s. It's worthy of note that these will be the first iPhones available on Boost Mobile - up to now, the company has focused on basic "feature phones," Android variants and BlackBerry devices.

Boost Mobile is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sprint, and operates on Sprint's network.

Is pre-paid the way you'd prefer to go? Do you see a benefit to buying an unsubsidized phone and using it on a low-price carrier? What do you think of Boost Mobile's service? Sound off in the comments?
