Boost Update

With a new logo and a new plan, Boost Mobile looks to be revitalizing their brand. No, they're not adding phones or making options cheaper, but take a look at their offerings again anyway...

First off, the i855 camera phone on iDEN is down to $79.99. I might be wrong, but this seems to be a recent development...and a good one at that. Not that the i855 is great phone, but it is the only Boost cameraphone now, and cheaper is better right?

Second, there's a "$1 chat" option that is basicaly what Verizon's INPulse service has been for a long time: unlimited mobile to mobile, unlimited nights starting at 9 p.m., 10 cent calling at other times. Walkie talkie still costs and extra $1 per day, but hey, more plans mean better plans, right?

As a final\side note, you can also now calculate the tax on Boost's Unlimited service. So they're no longer paying the taxes for you...but at least they appear to only be charging service taxes rather than heaping on extra fees...
