$450 for a prepaid iPhone 6s seems like a typo, but Boost Mobile is making it happen


Update (10/1 1:00pm): Boost Mobile has announced new monthly plans with “growing data.”  When enrolled in one of these plans you’ll earn an extra 500MB of high-speed monthly data (up to 3GB) for every 3 on-time payments you make.

Apple’s latest flagship iPhone isn’t even a week old yet, but it’s already getting its first significant discount. Boost Mobile (a pre-paid arm of Sprint’s Network) offers the 16GB iPhone 6s in Space Gray for $549.99 (already $100 below list), but applying coupon code B6677847 during checkout drops your final price down to just $449.99 with free shipping. That’s $199.01 below Apple’s retail price and a pretty crazy deal for such a new release. This iPhone comes free from any contracts, but is locked to Boost Mobile’s service. Prepaid plans with unlimited data, talk, and text start at just $35 $30 per month so it is actually a pretty solid deal all the way around if you live in a good Sprint coverage area.

iPhone 6s features 3D Touch, 4K video recording, Live Photos, and more as we’re sure you already know.

    Important question is, how to get it unlocked.. Sprints network doesn’t even offer true LTE. It’s just garbage.

      How does that even make sense, “doesn’t offer true LTE”?? Either they have LTE or they don’t and I’m pretty sure they do. Do you even use Sprint as your service provider? If not, then how can you say their network is garbage?

    Two q’s — how to unlock, and will this model work on Verizon?

      I was looking into the unlocking thing myself and came to the conclusion that unless you wanted to be on Boost Mobile’s network for a year it was not worth the effort. I once bought an android phone from Metro PCS and got an unlock code online and was good to go but the Boost Iphone, if, after a year, you get it unlocked, it seems to be a limited unlock, so you still cannot use it on a GSM network, strange. I would certainly check a place like to see if they can unlock it, or a local used phone store. .

    From Boost Mobiles website: Eligible customers can request a DSU-capable device be unlocked and/or request the associated MSL Code by contacting Boost Mobile Customer Care at 1-888-BOOST-4U

    Basically your device has to have ‘launched’ after February 2015 – and of course you can’t owe money on a contract, which wouldn’t apply here….so yeah, I’m thinking you can unlock this. It should work on all 4 major carriers after unlock, but that version of the phone won’t have “Band 30”, you’ll have to have the AT&T version for that. That information is per pcmag.

    Does this code even work? I tried several times. The 100.00 dollars is deducted but once you get to final part of the transaction the transaction is denied.

    It’s a scam. The code does not work, I tried it myself and you can totally tell it is fake. All they did was inspect the element.
