  2. Choose your phone number

    Choose your Boost Mobile number. Alternatively, Boost Mobile can assign a number to you.

  3. Choose your plan

    Choose a plan for your phone. Boost offers prepaid, no-contract plans for both Android smartphones and basic cell phones.

  4. Set up your account

    Type your name, billing address, email address and other information. Review your account settings, and click Continue.

  5. Make a payment

    Review your selections, and click Continue. Click Pay Now to make your first Boost Mobile payment. Enter your payment information, and click Finish. Boost Mobile automatically activates your phone upon payment. Make a phone call to test the results.
