In 2002 Boost Mobile officially launched in the USA in a partnership with Nextel Communications.  The company offered walkie talkie 2 way radio like functionality with its push to talk service over Nextel’s iDEN network.  Subscribers paid a dollar a day for for the service to get unlimited talk and text.

In 2006 Sprint purchased Nextel Communications and hence the Boost Mobile brand. Almost immediately the company began offering service on Sprint’s CDMA network in select markets, while still maintaining its push to talk service in many markets.  It wasn’t until 2013 that Sprint and Boost Mobile fully retired Boost’s iDEN network in favor of Sprint’s CDMA network.

Today, Boost Mobile is Sprint’s main prepaid wireless brand.  Plans and phones can be purchased online through the Boost Mobile website, through Boost Mobile retail locations and through various retailers across the country such as Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy.

To obtain service with Boost Mobile, subscribers must purchase a new phone from the provider as they offer extremely limited support for BYOD.  Those that hope to bring their own phone to the network will first have to check Boost Mobile’s list of supported BYOD devices to see if its allowed.
