Apple's latest iPhone models are coming to pre-aid wireless carrier Boost Mobile next week for an attractive unsubsidized price.
The no-contract iPhone 5S is due to arrive on November 8 starting at $550 for the entry-level 16GB version.
Next week's Boost Mobile iPhone 5S tops out at $750 for the robust 64GB variant.
iPhone 5C for Boost
Also scheduled to go on sale November 8 at Boost is the iPhone 5C - which is $100 cheaper than everywhere else.
The off-contract budget model of Apple's hardware starts at $450 for 16GB. To bag a 32GB at Boost, you'll need $550 and $650 for a 64GB.
Boost Mobile iPhone plans
Boost Mobile's monthly plans are rather cheap, too. It offers a no-contract $55 monthly unlimited plan that includes nationwide talk, text and data that's throttled after 2.5GB a month.
The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C also count towards its "Shrinking Payments" policy that reduces monthly bills by $5 every six months until it reaches $40 per month.
Of course, the upfront cost with Boost is significantly higher than subsidized carriers like AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. An iPhone 5C on one of the big guys costs a cool $100 upfront.
Boost's price may not be enough to turn those somewhat rotten iPhone 5C sales around.
Also, don't go thinking you can simply pop out a SIM card and replace it with an AT&T or T-Mobile nano-SIM to save $100 off of the subsidized price.
Boost piggybacks off Sprint's network, so it's locked down with CDMA technology.
