Can I Use a Boost Mobile iPhone With Straight Talk?

YouTuber, Tay Talent asks…

Can you still use straight talk plan if you buy a boost mobile iPhone ?

I don’t know but this may help.

the Boost iPhone is likely locked…
I haven’t tried a Boost phone but it is mostly likely activation locked to Boost. They may unlock the phone for free after you meet their unlocking policy. See Boost Unlocking Policy

For an iPhone you already have…
If you already have the Boost iPhone try borrowing an AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon SIM from a friend and see if it works in the phone. If you can make a call, the phone is unlocked and should work with at least one of the Straight Talk networks.

You did not say which iPhone you wanted to use and for some iPhones they have two different models, one that is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile and another for Verizon and Sprint that is also compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile. Since Boost uses the Sprint network they would sell the Sprint model.

When you sign up for Straight Talk, you’ll need to decide if you want to use their AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon or possible even Sprint networks. If you want to use verizon or sprint, check the iPhone’s MEID to see if it is eligible. See Checking If Your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S Is Compatible With Straight Talk’s Verizon Network

If you are buying a new Boost iPhone…
I would not recommend buying an iPhone from Boost just to try and use it with Straight Talk. There is a good chance the phone is can only be activated with Boost. I’d recommend buying a new iPhone directly from Straight Talk. Straight Talk is currently offering 50% more data on two plans when you buy a new phone. The $35 plan will come with 3GB of data and the $45 plan will come with 15GB of data. I’d wait until November to see the latest deals. Often Straight Talk offers deals on phone and plan bundles. Some months you can save up to $100 off a new iPhone. Unfortunately the do not have this promotion for Oct 2018. See my deals page. I’ll update it when the latest deals come out in November. Read the deals page carefully for important information you need to know. There are a number of Straight Talk deals and promotion videos on YouTube channel if you want to see how the phone and plan promotions work.
