Like the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, the Galaxy Rush can be paired with Boost Mobile’s no-contract $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, Web2, email and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.
Consumers who love to talk and text should check out the Samsung Array available on Sept. 4 for $59.99 (excluding taxes) at Boost Mobile’s exclusive retail stores, select independent wireless dealer locations nationwide and at www.boostmobile.com with free shipping. It will also be available late September in select national retail locations. The Samsung Array is a slim, stylish slide-out QWERTY device that is perfect for the texter who wants a 2.0MP camera and web browsing capability at an affordable price. The slim form factor makes the handset compact and easy to fit in a pocket, and with a 2.4-inch LCD screen, it is large enough to see pictures and read texts clearly. The device will also be available on Boost Mobile’s $45 Talk & Text Unlimited Plan with Shrinking Payments.
