If that's your/my 'best hope', I don't want to ask what my worst fear should be.... :ohmy:
I've been through a couple of failing MVNO's, and it's not fun. Still, if it happens to me again, I'll be crossing my fingers.

Boom! Mobile has ceased offering their service on Yellow, AKA Sprint. All Boom! Yellow customers will be transitioned to Ting CDMA and will receive a special offer ($20 unlimited talk/text/data) via email to either continue their service or port away to another carrier. This offer is ONLY available to Boom! Yellow customers.

Boom! Blue and Boom! Red customers are unaffected at this time. However, if any existing Boom! Red customers want to switch to Ting CDMA, I can see if we can take advantage of this or a similar offer. Just DM me.


Is Boom Red going to go away as well? I could not get through to Boom CS (chat or phone) even though their hours are 8am - 8pm CST. I am concerned since I have always been able to reach CS in the past.

I was not aware that they offered Sprint network, though-- was this relatively recent?

From reading your post, Literally_Unlimited, it looks like Ting is offering a special plan for those needing a new home? I think this may be a first for Ting. (And well outside the normal Ting price structure.)


In the early days (early 2016) they had all 4 of the big networks. I don't know when they stopped T-Mobile or AT&T. It looks like they may be bringing back AT&T. I have only used Verizon with them and will be sad if they go away, their CS has always been top notch.

Jeff from boom on howardforums says they will offer verizon and att going forward.

They were always primarily verizon so I suspect they are just sticking to their core market and getting rid of unprofitable or unpopular business (sprint!). Then trying something new with att.

That is a really nice deal for boom cdma customers.

Thanks, I did see that quote but when I could not reach CS during normal business hours I started to get worried.

No. Boom! Red and Boom! Blue are unaffected, as best I can tell. I can't speak to their CS, but we've heard nothing different on their other services, other than they're attempting to launch a consumer Boom! Blue product soon.

I'm really excited to help out Boom! Yellow customers get up and running on Ting, hopefully having no service interruptions in the process.

Hey Guys,

We are sorry to hear about Boom! Yellow being discontinued.

However, if there are any of you out there who have not decided where to go next, Tello Mobile is running a promo for new customers in celebration of its 3rd anniversary.

You can get any of our phone plans for just $3 for the first month of service. For example, you can get 2GB data plus unlimited talk & text, which would regularly be priced at $19/month, for just $3 if you join before May 16th.

No coupon code is needed to get this offer, as long as you open a new account with us.

You can get more info about this deal on our website, tello.com .

Tello Mobile runs on the Sprint network, so your coverage would be the same as before.

Give it a try and tell us what you think ;)
