Boost Mobile Social & Gaming Add-ons
Boost Mobile, a small carrier operating on Sprint’s network, offers affordable, feature-packed prepaid phone plans. If you want to step up your feature game even more, Boost Mobile offers the following social and gaming add-ons:
- airG: a social gaming app
- PlayPhone: a social gaming app for Android users
airG Boost Mobile Add-On
Did someone say free gaming add-on? The airG add-on is available for anyone on a Boost Mobile plan. This app merges the social benefits of apps like Tinder and Bumble with the entertainment of gaming systems. With airG, you can meet new friends and love interests both locally and worldwide in the airG chat rooms. You can play popular online games, such as Big Barn World, with friends or meet new gaming friends to play with. Other capabilities include:
- Creating status updates
- Sharing photos
- Sending gifts to other players
- Sending messages through Hookt
- Posting on forums
Ads can be irritating and disrupt the gaming experience. Thankfully, there’s a way to go add-free with airG VIP. It costs $5/month and also provides you with access to premium gifts you can give to others, as well as the ability to see who is looking at your profile.
PlayPhone Boost Mobile Add-On
Boost Mobile’s PlayPhone is a social gaming app available for Android phones. Starting at just $5/month, PlayPhone provides users with hundreds of free-to-play and premium games. The price of this gaming add-on varies depending on the number of play credits the user wants:
- $5/month: 750 play credits
- $10/month: 3,000 play credits
Customers can use play credits toward premium games, as well as in-app purchases. Whether you’re an avid gamer or are just looking for a fun way to kill time while traveling, this is a great, budget-friendly add-on.
How to Buy a Boost Mobile Add-On
Adding PlayPhone to your phone plan is easy—simply click “Get it Now” on Boost’s PlayPhone page, then sign into your Boost Mobile account using your phone number and PIN. Adding airG is also simple. You have the option of downloading it via Google Play or on the Apple app store (only for iOS devices). Click “Install” and then follow the prompts to download airG.
Which Plans are Eligible for Add-Ons?
All Boost Mobile monthly phone plans are eligible for these gaming and social add-ons, but you have to make sure you have an eligible device before signing up. PlayPhone can only be downloaded on Android phones, while airG is compatible with both iPhones and Androids.
Boost Mobile prepaid plans are good for budget-minded mobile customers who want to avoid a credit check. Their unlimited plans come with the benefit of a high-speed hotspot allowance, which many other carriers do not offer. Boost Mobile’s other features include international perks, TIDAL subscriptions, and cheap travel add-ons.
Boost Mobile Gaming Add-Ons Vs Competitors
Social gaming apps are not common carrier extras. This may be because there are hundreds of thousands of free-to-play games offered through the App Store and Google Play Store.
Besides Boost Mobile, the only other carrier that offers a gaming add-on is Virgin Mobile, who offers airG VIP for $5/month. They don’t appear to offer the free version.
