Boost Mobile is often known for their iDEN/Walkie-talkie phones, as their "Where you at?" ads would suggest. However, the youth-oriented Sprint-Nextel offspring also offers a few non-iDEN phones, and its latest is the Motorola Krzr K1m. The K1m has all the features of the Sprint version, such as an MP3 player, a 1.3-megapixel camera, GPS, as well as EV-DO support, and is available for $249.99. It also includes a preloaded service called "The Latest," which gives you access to information such as news, sports, and stock market updates throughout the day. Premium channels have driving directions, unlimited 411 searches, and more. A basic subscription is $2.99 a month, and a premium one will cost you $4.99 a month. Boost is offering a trial of "The Latest" service for free for the first seven days.
The Krzr K1m is also the launch device for Boost Mobile's new unlimited monthly plans that range from $45 to $55 a month, arguably one of the most affordable unlimited plans in the nation ($45 is for just calls, $50 for talk and text, and $55 if you add Web access to the mix). If you're a new customer, you can get the first month free. Boost Mobile is only available in 13 states though, so enter in your zip code to see if you're in luck.
