Boost Mobile today announced three Motorola devices: Motorola Clutch i475, Motorola Theory and Motorola i412. All three Motorola phones will be available with the Boost Mobile's $50 Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage plan, where the longer you stay, the less you pay simply by making on-time payments. For every six on-time payments, a Boost Mobile customer's monthly cost will shrink by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $35 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, email, IM and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone. Here is more info on these three new devices from Boost Mobile:

The Clutch + i475 and i412 are the latest walkie-talkie phones to offer push-to-talk (PTT) service operating on Sprint?s iDEN network, the fastest national push-to-talk network2. Last December, Sprint announced Network Vision, a multi-year initiative to provide an enhanced network experience for its customers that will include faster, more robust broadband PTT service. As part of that initiative, the company said at that time that it plans to continue to offer devices on the iDEN network into 2013 when it expects to begin to phase out iDEN cell sites as the newer push-to-talk broadband capabilities become more widely available on the company?s CDMA network.
A large number of Boost Mobile's customers make international calls to South America and Mexico. Boost Mobile Monthly Unlimited customers now have more choice and flexibility to meet their international calling and texting needs with International Connect and International Connect Plus. For an additional $5 a month customers can add International Connect to their monthly plan and enjoy calling to landlines in more than 150 cities in Mexico, calls to Canada, and unlimited international text messages.
