Boost Mobile offers affordable cellphone plans and frequently runs special deals on some of the world’s most sought-after smartphones and devices. Currently, the cellphone carrier has some exciting deals available for iPhones. In this article, we cover some of the current iPhone deals available through Boost Mobile, pricing information, trade-in policies and more to help consumers make the most informed decision on their iPhone purchases.

Boost Mobile iPhone prices

Since Boost Mobile advertises as a no-contract provider, the company mostly offers its phones at full retail price. However, the company does provide financing options for its customers. For example, BoostUP! is an installment billing program that offers an 18-month contract option for new phone purchases only for existing Boost Mobile customers that have made 12 consecutive on-time payments. Only select phones are available through this option. For this option, Boost Mobile owns the phone until the final payment is received.  

Another option is the SmartPay lease-to-own agreement, which is available for both new and existing customers. This charges customers a fee to pay for the phone over a 15-month period. Through this option, SmartPay owns the phone until the final payment is received.

Since payment plans vary depending on the retail price of the phone, the customers’ status with Boost Mobile, payment history, and credit score, there are no advertised monthly payments on the provider’s website. Only in special circumstances, such as the current in-store deal on the iPhone 7 for $49.99/mo., does Boost Mobile advertise such payment options since such deals are not generally dependent upon a customer’s status but rather qualifying cellphone plans the provider offers.

Boost Mobile iPhone 7 deal

Maximum savings: $300

Boost Mobile is currently offering the iPhone 7 at $150 below retail price. Right now, customers can get an iPhone 7 for just $199.99 when they purchase the phone on Boost Mobile’s website. In order to redeem the deal, shoppers must purchase the phone in-full, wait for it to be delivered to their home, and then activate the phone online by selecting a Boost Mobile cellular plan. Get the deal by visiting the Boost Mobile website today.

Shoppers can also further their savings by choosing to purchase their iPhone 7 in-store before October 5, 2020. The offer is only valid while supplies last, has a limit of one device/line and is only available to new customers. It also requires customers to purchase an eligible plan of $50 or higher, or an unlimited family plan. Use the store locator tool on the Boost Mobile website to find a participating store near you.

Boost Mobile iPhone 8 deal

Maximum savings: $200

Boost Mobile currently lists the iPhone 8 at $299.99 for customers shopping through their online store. Currently, the company is sold out of the less expensive 64GB iPhone 8 for $299.99; however, you can still purchase the 128GB version for $349.99.

For those only interested in paying $299.99, Boost Mobile offers the iPhone 8 Plus for $200 off retail price. This phone is only available in 128GB, but with the deal, is only listed for $299.99. We think this is a great deal for those looking for extra space without paying the extra $50 for a slightly slimmer model.

Boost Mobile iPhone SE deal

Maximum savings: $100

The iPhone SE, released in April 2020, is also available online at Boost Mobile for $100 off retail price. Starting at $299.99 with 64GB, customers can take advantage of the deal by purchasing the phone in-full online. After they receive the phone, they’ll have to activate it by selecting a Boost Mobile plan. Explore your options by visiting the Boost Mobile website today.

Boost Mobile iPhone 11 deal

Maximum savings: $100

Officially launched last September 2019, the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max are all offered at a $100 off discount on Boost Mobile’s website. The iPhone 11 starts at $599.99 at 64GB and increases from there depending on how much space you select. Again, customers can redeem this deal by purchasing the phone online, waiting for its arrival, and signing up for a Boost Mobile plan to activate it.

The iPhone 11 Pro starts at $899.99 and features a maximum capacity of 512GB. Great for business professionals, photographers, videographers and those who generally require more space in their phones, the $100 off deal at Boost Mobile offers a cost-effective way to get the extra space you need.

Similarly, the iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at $999.99. Featuring six hours more talk time, 0.7-inch larger screen, and incredible Super Retina XDR display, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the company’s brightest display to date. Complete with A13 Bionic for gaming, augmented reality, and photography, the phone is well worth the modestly discounted price listed on Boost Mobile.

Boost Mobile iPhone X deal

Maximum savings: $100

Yet another iPhone deal offered online through Boost Mobile is for the iPhone X series. Customers can take $100 off the iPhone XR, bringing the retail price down to $499.99 for the 64GB model. Similarly, the iPhone XS is offered at a $100 discount, bringing the retail price down to $799.99. Once again, to redeem each deal, customers will need to purchase online and activate their phone once it arrives by signing up for a Boost Mobile plan.

Boost Mobile iPhone 6/6S/6 Plus deal

Since the iPhone 6 was released in September 2014, many cellphone providers have chosen to drop the offering from their shelves as newer models have taken their place. Such is the case with Boost Mobile. While the company currently offers iPhone models 7 – 11, they no longer offer the iPhone 6, 6S, or 6 Plus on their website. You may still be able to find one in stores, but you’ll have to call ahead of time to see if they’re available. You can find a Boost Mobile store near you by using their online locator tool.

Boost Mobile trade-in for iPhone

Boost Mobile offers a Trade & Save Program to its customers. Powered by Brightstar, the program allows customers to trade in qualifying devices, regardless of carrier or manufacturer — including iPhones. In exchange for the traded in device, customers will receive a credit to go towards a new phone or accessory. Customers can check their device’s eligibility for the program by visiting a local Boost retailer. If it qualifies, they will receive an in-store credit so they can purchase a new Boost phone.

How to unlock a Boost Mobile iPhone

In order to unlock a Boost Mobile iPhone, customers will need to submit a request for a domestic SIM unlock or request the associated MSL Code. This can be done by contacting Boost Mobile Customer Care at 1-888-BOOST-4U. Boost Mobile will only assist in unlocking a device if it meets the following criteria:

  • It is SIM unlock capable
  • It has not been reported as lost or stolen, or otherwise flagged as ineligible for unlocking
  • It has been active on the user’s account for at least one year
  • Its associated account is active and in good standing with Boost Mobile
