Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile Both Stoked to Carry Samsung Galaxy S III

In Samsung's world, the talk of the Galaxy is all about the recently unveiled S4 with its plethora of fancy new features and hardware enhancements, but don't go hating on its predecessor. The Galaxy S III is still a capable smartphone, which is why Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile are so excited to announce that they're now carrying Samsung's previous flagship device.

"Samsung Galaxy S III is a premium smartphone designed to deliver one of the hottest handset experiences to consumers," said Jeff Hallock, senior vice president, Marketing-Sprint. "Offering this device on both Boost and Virgin Mobile with the value, choice and flexibility of their no-contract wireless plans makes moving from a long-term contract a simple decision. This is another stellar handset that further validates both brands’ leadership in this space, a nationwide network with unlimited no-contract offers."


Since it's been awhile, you might need a refresher on the phone's specs. The Galaxy S III boasts a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.8-nich HD Super AMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB/32GB/64GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot, and a few other odds and ends. It comes with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

You can pair the device with Boost Mobile's no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited Plan with Shrinking Payments (for every six months of on-time payments, the plan shrinks by $5 until it reaches $40/month). Virgin Mobile customers can sign up for unlimited data and messaging plans starting at $35 per month.
