Join "El Grito" – In Celebration of the Bicentennial of Mexican Independence Day, Boost Mobile Offers Unlimited Calling and Texting to Mexico for Only $5 a Month
Promotional price of $5 available through the end of the year, allows Boost Monthly Unlimited Customers to call landlines in more than 150 cities in Mexico, including Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey
IRVINE, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE), September 13, 2010 - Boost Mobile Monthly Unlimited customers can enjoy even greater value with the International Connect feature. Boost has reduced the price of International Connect by 50 percent to $5 a month for new and existing subscribers who add this feature to a monthly unlimited plan by Dec. 31. This limited time offer, coupled with Boost’s $50 Monthly Unlimited plan, delivers unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, e-mail, IM, 411 and unlimited international text from the United States and unlimited international calling to select destinations for only $55 a month.
International Connect includes:
Cities in Mexico include Acapulco, Autan, Ciudad Guzman, Colima, Tijuana, Morelia, Puebla, Oaxaca, Jalapa and Zacatecas*. For those Monthly Unlimited customers with an iDEN Series handset, unlimited walkie-talkie service from the United States, Canada and Baja California (Mexico) to Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Chile is included in the $5 monthly add-on.
"During this time of celebration around Mexican Independence Day, we know that people want to take time and call family and friends in Mexico," said Hector Galvan, Hispanic manager, Boost Mobile. "Reducing the cost of International Connect allows Monthly Unlimited customers to call Mexico and other international destinations more often at a low price without having to worry about extra fees. The add-on also is a great alternative to international calling cards that can often include hidden and extra charges.”
Now through the end of the year, all customers who currently have International Connect or add it on will receive the offer for $5. After Dec. 31, this promotional price will be grandfathered for those customers as long as the account is active and the $5 add-on remains on the account.
