Boost Mobile is currently offering a number of free phones to those interested in switching to their network. The promotion is part of the Dish Network-owned prepaid brand’s tax season offers. Apart from offering an iPhone SE for $49.99 to switchers, Boost has a few free Android devices to give away. They also have a free month of service for BYOD customers.
iPhone SE for $49.99
Boost has continuously been offering the iPhone SE at different prices for months. Now, they have changed the offer for switchers and are offering the device at $49.99. But you will need to activate service under Boost’s $60 unlimited plan that comes with unlimited calls, texts, and 35GB of high-speed data.
Earlier today, the FCC revealed the winners of Auction 107 for the sought after C-Band radio frequency licenses.
According to the announcement, Verizon spent $45.5 billion with over half of $81.1 billion total spent in the whole action. But this doesn’t really come as a surprise since all the other major carriers in the country spent large sums of money for the auction too.
The report showed that AT&T spent $23.4 billion, T-Mobile spent $9.3 billion, and U.S. Cellular spent $1.3 billion in the auction.
T-Mobile recently rolled out its newest plan called Magenta MAX, which comes with no throttling. In addition to that release, the Un-Carrier revealed that it will be making a similar plan available to its customers aged 55 and above.
The new plan, called Magenta MAX Unlimited 55 plan, gives customers 55 and above two lines for only $90 per month with autopay. Taxes and fees are already included. The plan comes with unlimited calls, texts, and 4G and 5G premium data. It also includes 40GB of hotspot data, Netflix on Us, and 4K video streaming.
Verizon Prepaid has quietly rolled out a new Walmart-exclusive offer. They are also running a discount on select Motorola devices. These offers were spotted by analysts at Wave7 Research.
Bonus Data Offer
The new offer comes as a bonus data deal, which gives new lines of service an extra 10GB of data each month under Verizon’s $50 prepaid plan. Originally, this plan comes with unlimited texts, calls, and 15GB of high-speed data. But with the bonus data offer in place, customers can enjoy 25GB of high-speed data per month.
Many are already looking forward to OnePlus’ latest smartphone, the OnePlus 9. After the preview of its OnePlus 9 Pro and 9E devices, it looks like the OnePlus 9 is another device to be excited about.
Thanks to a leak, we’re getting a look at some of the specs of the OnePlus 9. And some of those specs include a 6.55-inch Fluid AMOLED display with 1080p resolution. The device is also said to operate on a Snapdragon 888 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB onboard memory.
Camera-wise, this is where things get pretty interesting. The OnePlus 9 is said to include a 48-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel Sony ultra-wide sensor, and a 2-megapixel camera. The 50-megapixel camera is believed to be the new Sony IMX766.
Earlier today, Dish Network held its Q4 2020 earnings call. In the call, company co-founder and chairman Charlie Ergen highlighted its commitment to build a 5G wireless network and launch it in its first major cities before Q3 2021 ends.
In the early part of the call, Ergen gave a recap on what the company has been doing with its network-building effort. After it acquired Boost Mobile last year, Dish has continued to offer prepaid service as an MVNO running on T-Mobile’s network. Despite this, they have been working on accumulating its own spectrum to turn Boost into a full-fledged carrier.
T-Mobile is coming out with a new 5G smartphone plan called Magenta MAX. The Un-Carrier has also upgraded its core Magenta plans and has unveiled a new carrier switch program for those who wish to join T-Mobile’s network.
Starting Wednesday, February 24th, customers can get their hands on the new smartphone plan that comes with no throttling. It offers unlimited calls, texts, and Premium data (4G and 5G) at $57 per line per month for three lines with autopay.

Last week, it was reported that Samsung has paused rolling out the One UI 3.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE. Many believed that the update was pulled due to a technical issue. But as it turns out, there weren’t any technical issues involved in the rollout.
Right now, Samsung has resumed the rollout for the One UI 3.1 for the Galaxy S20 FE. The firmware number remains the same, which means that there were no technical issues.
Verizon has just unveiled its latest promotion for its prepaid customers. If you activate a new plan, you can enjoy a free month of service on your third month. This offer is applicable to those who either buy a new phone from Verizon or bring their own device.
In order to get the offer, you will need to pay for the new line and two months of service so you can get the third month for free. It is available on all Verizon Prepaid plans. The good news is that 5G service is included at no extra cost. But if you wish to access 5G Ultra Wideband, you will have to activate service on the $75 per month plan.
