    $25 a Month Unlimited Gigs With Port In and Eligible Device

    https://www.boostmobile.com/plans/br...mo-LimitedTime

    I was prepared to pay $50 a month tonight, but then I saw this offer. I ported in a number with a Moto G6 as my device. Might be worth looking at for some of you out there.

    These deals make me mad because I can't qualify.

    I am already on boost with the $35/30 3 GB plan and I don't have a phone that would work to port in.

    I have another phone on t-mobile but that phone is a dumb phone so can't port it in.

    I think there are only a few phones that work on boost to port in. Was your moto G6 unlocked originally or did you buy it locked and unlock it?

    I need metro to have a similar deal that I would qualify for but metro never has deals for single lines, they only have deals for family plans, normally 4 lines for $25.

    I probable won't end up doing this because by the time I do the deal will expire; however, wondering if anyone knows if this would work in theory.

    Here is the Moto G6 Unlocked from costco for $240.

    https://www.costco.com/Moto-G6-Unloc...100422868.html

    If I buy the Moto G6 Unlocked phone and put it on another carrier then port it to boost would that work?

    What would be a good carrier to put it on?

    t-mobile has a pay as you go plan for $3 a month so would that work?

    I had trouble with an IMEI Number on Boost's website, but it says my IPhone 6s is eligible. Might have to go to Best Buy to see it will work with this plan.

    The link says bring your own phone but does not say you have to port in to get the deal.

    Does anyone know if I can just buy a new unlocked phone like the Moto G6 Unlocked from costco for $240 and then sign up and get a new phone number?

    https://www.costco.com/Moto-G6-Unloc...100422868.html

    Also I already have another boost mobile account but that won't disqualify me will it? I would just want to close my old account.

    It says to do the 3 things below and I don't see anything about saying a port in from another carrier or any port in is required?

    Confirm Phone Eligibility
    Get a Sim Card
    Activate Online

    In the small print I see:

    Avail. only for new & port-in customers at boostmobile.com.

    Here in the small print it I guess it should say "new or port-in" if port-in was not required. So I am guessing this means port-in is required.

    They should not have the port-in requirement in the small print.

    I was wrong about the port-in. A new number is eligible as well.

    Sent from my moto g(6) using HoFo mobile app

    If they don't require port-in that solves one problem.

    Now I thought of another problem. It says new customers.

    I currently have a boost $35 3 GB plan so does that disqualify me?

    Or by new customer do they mean starting a new account?

    My bill is due on the 20th so could I not pay and would that mean I am now not a customer and then if I sign up would that make me a new customer?

    I'm thinking about dropping my T-Mobile/walmart $30 a month plan for this. Already have sprint service on my main line, and its usable for me.

    I haven't been able to find out if boost throttles bandwidth how cricket does. Any input on that?

    so pretty much the same thing that T-mob does.

    It bugs me that I have to buy a $10 sim kit when the sim for my t-mob phone was given to me at the store. May stop by a sprint store and see if they'll give me one.

    I am not sure what your t-mobile plan does but most the unlimited plans are similar.

    So this plan throttles video, music, and games. But browsing and downloading is not throttled.

    You also get 8 GB of hotspot.

    They also might throttle for data deprioritization.

    They want you to pay $10 more for HD speed.

    I am already on boost so I am not sure if I qualify for this $25 unlimited promo but if I could I would buy a new unlocked phone and sign up.

    If you're an existing Boost customer and want this plan and to keep the same number, you'll have to port your number out and port it back in.

    To answer the question about throttling on this plan, I used Sprint postpaid service for years. The fine print says something about using more than 35GB before being subject to deprioritization. In my realworld experience, I don't notice any difference between this plan and Sprint postpaid service.

    I don't want to keep my phone number.

    I am just trying to figure out if having a boost plan would disqualify me for this promo. In other words, what do they mean when they say it only applies for new customers.

    I can create a new account with a new phone number.

    Does a new account mean the same thing as a new customer?

    Do they check my name and address or credit card to say I am not a new customer?

    I don't want to buy a new unlocked phone from costco for $240 if it turns out they won't let me sign up.

    These promo deals are complex to figure out if you qualify.
