The red Seek is an ideal complement to Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage plan, where the longer you stay the less you pay. Customers who sign up for the Shrinkage Plan will see their monthly payment shrink from $50 a month to $35 a month by simply making on-time payments. For every six on-time payments, a customer’s monthly cost will shrink by $5, eventually getting down to $35 for unlimited voice, text messaging, Web, e-mail, IM and calls to 411. No contracts are required and there are no hidden fees.
Customers also can protect their Seek with phone insurance that is now available for Monthly Unlimited customers. For $5 per month customers are covered if their device breaks, or becomes lost, stolen or damaged – even by liquid. Go to www.boostmobile.com for more information.
