Clark Howard reports on Boost Mobile's new offering - unlimited cell phone calling and web access for 50 bucks! Dang!! The downside is phone selection and accessibility (it's on the Nextel network) but 50 bucks includes not only unlimited calling and texting but also web access? Whoa!!
PS: International long distance isn't as cheap as calling cards, but it's certainly a lot cheaper than other cell phone companies. The rate to India is $0.30/minute, which in a bind is not shabby. Also, outgoing international texts are not free.
PPS: There is NO contract!!!
