Boost Mobile intros new international services

Boost Mobile introduces $5 and $10 International Connect plans.

Boost Mobile introduced a couple of international services yesterday that will please those who need to make calls to Mexico, Canada, and a few other nearby countries.

The first is a $5 International Connect plan that will let Boost customers make unlimited calls to landlines in more than 150 cities in Mexico, unlimited calls to Canada, and unlimited international texts from the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. IDEN customers get some extras, too, like unlimited walkie-talkie capabilities from the U.S., Canada, and Baja California to Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and Chile.

If you pay an extra $5, you get all of the above plus unlimited calling to 35 more countries. These plans have to be added to Boost's $50 unlimited plan.
