IRVINE, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE), June 06, 2013 - Boost Mobile, a leader in the no-contract wireless industry and ranked “Highest in Purchase Experience among Non-Contract Wireless Providers” by J.D. Power and Associates1, and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) today announced the June 12 availability of the Samsung Galaxy S® III. Boost Mobile vice president Andre Smith hosted a special chat on Facebook® today to talk about the device. Priced at $399.99 (excluding taxes), the premium Android™ smartphone will operate on the Sprint 3G and 4G LTE networks, with 4G LTE available to Boost Mobile customers in 88 markets and counting.
“Samsung Galaxy S III is an award-winning device that customers can now combine with an award-winning no-contract carrier,” said Andre Smith. “Combined with Boost Mobile’s shrinking payments, where customers save the longer they stay, and the super-fast 4G LTE network from Sprint, Galaxy S III combines sharing, simplicity and power together in a way never before seen by no-contract customers.”
This popular phone has some amazing and fun features:
Sharing: Allows you to share content with your own devices, friends, and groups in intuitive ways.
Simplicity: Removes the complexity from your experience – whether that’s interacting with their device, sharing a video with a friend, or broadcasting a presentation to a group.
Power: Empowering you to do more, more easily, on a device that’s elegant, refined, beautiful and fast. A true showpiece of technology that performs as well as it looks.
Samsung Galaxy S III can be paired with Boost Mobile’s no-annual contract2 $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments. For every six on-time payments, the cost of Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan shrinks by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $40 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and picture messaging, Web3, email and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.
Samsung Galaxy S III will be available starting June 12 at Boost Mobile’s exclusive retail stores, select independent wireless dealer locations nationwide and at www.boostmobile.com with free shipping. The Android smartphone will be available later in June in select national retail locations.
