US prepaid carrier to get iPhone for first time

Boost Mobile is preparing to launch the iPhone 5s and 5c on its network, leaked promotional art indicates. The art doesn't suggest when Boost will start selling the phones, but that could happen in the near future, given a series of rollouts at US carriers beginning October 1st. Prices are also missing from the advertising.

If the leak is accurate, the 5s and 5c will be the very first iPhones on Boost, even though the carrier is owned by Sprint. Sprint-branded iPhones have been available since 2011, including through the US branch of Virgin Mobile, which Sprint controls. A number of rival prepaid carriers have also been selling the iPhone for some time, such as Cricket and Straight Talk.
