Boost Mobile will introduce BBM Unlimited, a worldwide unlimited access to BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and talk and text with payments that shrink to as low as $30 a month. This offer is available beginning on July 10 exclusively with the BlackBerry Curve 9310 smartphone, which is launching the same day for $99.99 (excluding taxes). Here is more info:
Similar to other monthly unlimited plans offered by Boost Mobile, the $45 BBM Unlimited plan provides customers the opportunity to be rewarded for simply making on-time payments. For every six on-time payments, customers will see their monthly payment shrink by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $30 a month for unlimited nationwide talk and text and worldwide BBM access. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for these saving milestones.
BlackBerry Curve 9310 gives consumers the full power of the BlackBerry messaging and social-centric applications in the familiar BlackBerry Curve form factor. The smartphone will be available at Boost Mobile exclusive retail stores, select independent wireless dealer locations nationwide and at www.boostmobile.com with free shipping. It will also be available at select Best Buy locations next month.
Messaging on BlackBerry Curve 9310 is made easy with a full QWERTY keyboard and optical trackpad.
