How do prepaid SIM cards work?

Prepaid SIM cards connect your phone to a 3G, 4G or 5G network for a smooth and reliable internet connection. SIM cards in areas outside of 4G coverage will automatically connect you to a 3G network. Boost’s prepaid SIM cards also provide you with unlimited calls and texts to standard national numbers. Depending on the type of prepaid SIM card or recharge you purchase, you may also have unlimited international calls and texts.

How do I set up my prepaid SIM card?

Setting up your prepaid SIM card is easy. Simply head to activate and follow the prompts. 

Does a prepaid SIM come with a phone number?

Yes, it does. However, you don't have to use it! If you'd like to keep your number simply select 'keep existing number' when activating your SIM. You do not need to contact your previous provider. We’ll sort that out with them.

Please keep your old SIM in your phone until you’ve completed the activation form, as you’ll be sent an SMS to verify you have access to the phone number that is being transferred.

Can you recharge $10 with Boost?

How long does a $10 Boost recharge last?
