Boost Mobile Unlimited

Sprint's prepaid phone brand Boost Mobile today began trials a new, genuinely unlimited cellphone service. Dubbed simply Unlimited by Boost, the new plan sees Boost jump from iDEN networks (those used by Sprint's Nextel branch) to the more widespread CDMA used by Sprint itself. Testers in the current Dallas, San Francisco Bay, and Southern California test areas will be able to make local calls without a fixed number of minutes.

The trial service costs $45 per month in Texas and $50 in its California areas, and currently works only with the Motorola C290, which sells for $100 through Boost. The carrier's plans to launch the service after the trial are currently unavailable. [via RCR News]
