Sprint uses Boost to take on Leap, MetroPCS

Boost Mobile is trialing an unlimited CDMA calling service in parts of Texas and California where flat-rate carriers Leap and MetroPCS are gaining traction. Boost currently offers prepaid services using Sprint Nextel's iDEN network. The trials follow Sprint CEO Gary Foresee's already announced strategy of using CDMA technology to target sub-prime markets with unlimited calling plans, which he discussed during a conference call in January. Boost's new unlimited plans range from $45 to $55 depending on the market. Motorola's C290 ($100) is the only handset that supports the new plan.
