Pay-As-You-Go Faceoff: Boost vs. Jump

Our No. 1 goal here at Prepaid Reviews is to arm you with information necessary to make a decision on your cell phone carrier. A while back, we ran a series of columns called We Help You Decide, in which we profiled various phone users and how each of our featured providers matched up with each one. That’s still a viable source of information, but now we’re taking a step further. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to pit pay-as-you-go plans head to head to see which ones come out ahead. This is strictly for per-minute or per-day plans. The monthly rate plans will duke it out later. Up this week, Boost vs. Jump.
