So much for Cricket stealing the prepaid spotlight for more than 24-hours.
As MMi reported Thursday, Cricket has confirmed plans to become the nation's first prepaid wireless carrier to serve up the iPhone. Beginning June 22nd, the touchscreen Apple smartphone will be launched with an unlimited plan costing $55-per-month.
But Cricket may not be the only prepaid iPhone provider for long. According to the tech rumor mill, Sprint-owned Boost Mobile will similarly have a prepaid option for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S this September.
TechnoBuffalo was tipped off to this possibility by a trusted source close to the carrier, although question remain as to whether Boost Mobile will retain its monthly $50 Unlimited Plan. If so, that's $5 cheaper than the Cricket alternative.
