Verizon isn’t the only carrier gearing up to offer the Moto G in its stores without a contract. Boost Mobile, which operates on Sprint’s network, announced Thursday that it will begin selling the Moto G for $129.99 with its prepaid plans starting on Jan, 14. That’s $30 more than Verizon’s price, but still a discount from the Motorola’s $179 asking price if you buy it direct.
Boost Mobile will sell the phone with its $55 monthly unlimited plan, which provides unlimited talk, text and data. If you pay your bills on time several months in a row, your payments will begin to drop by $5 each month. Once you’ve paid your bill 18 months in a row on time, you’ll pay just $40 for the same plan.
The Moto G is a super compelling buy, primarily because it offers pretty decent specs and a great design for what you’re paying for it. It doesn’t offer the highest-end specs, and you won’t be surfing on 4G LTE networks, but you also won’t be burning a hole in your pocket each month.
