Boost to launch BlackBerry Curve 9310 and BBM plan

Sprint and Boost Mobile recently announced the availability of the BlackBerry Curve 9310, along with a new BBM plan. The Curve itself is nothing special, since it’s from the previous batch of BlackBerry releases. It’s faster than older models, and the OS is far better than previous versions, but the release was too little, to late for RIM. Still, BlackBerry fans will find this a more than gratifying experience. It will be available on July 10th at Boost outlets and on Boost Mobile’s website. With the Curve will also come a cheaper, BBM-centric plan.

The plan includes unlimited talk and text, plus unlimited BBM service, for $45 per month. That can shrink, with 18 on-time payments, to $30 per month. There is no mobile data included, though, so in order to check email and download BBM-connected apps, users will have to find a WiFi network. Still, it’s a nice little break for people who value BBM above all else on the BlackBerry.

    Be careful with Boost! Customer care is horrible both in store and online. I spent 30 minutes on the phone trying to get assistance with activation (credit card had been charged but phone not activated). Then I went to two locations and called a third. First location was closed, second and third only dealt with sales in store. I decided to return the phones and have been given the run around for the past 50 minutes. Don’t buy these phones.

    That honestly depends on where you go. As a Boost mobile sales rep, we recommened our customers to let us activate the phones for them, it makes the process easier and faster. Making sure that our customers are happy and they have their working phone. I apologize for your bad experience with those boost stores, you can always purchase a phone online or anywhere and take it to any boost mobile store and they should activate it for you, all that’ll be charged is the monthly fee.
