Plan no longer requires to bring own device?

The $10/month plan recently was a "New BYO Cust. Only" plan but now it is "New Cust. Only."  Does that mean I can buy a subsidized phone from Boost Mobile website and sign up online for the $10/month plan as a new customer?

Hi there v8power. You would need to bring a compatible  non-5G XP compatible device (new and BYO) and active on the expanded network to be eligible for the $10 promotional plan.

Thank you.  It sounds like there's no change from a month ago, is that right?

I thought there was a change because the main web page (https://www.boostmobile.com) now say "Bring Your Phone" plans start at $15/month and "BYO" was removed from the $10/month plan description at https://www.boostmobile.com/plans.html.  Are you planning to remove the $10 plan soon?

So sorry for any misunderstanding. For the $10.00 You would need to bring a compatible  non-5G XP compatible device (new and BYO). You could purchase the phone on the website and activate it on The $10.00

So, I could purchase "moto g play" for $59.99 (currently) and activate the $10/month plan when I receive the device?  I assume the device comes with a SIM, is that right?

As well compatible devices on our website will have the following: " his device is compatible with the Expanded Network

Thank you.

That's interesting you say the phone is not compatible because

1) Boost sells it:  https://www.boostmobile.com/phones/moto-g-play.html

2) I know a Boost Mobile customer on the $10 plan using that exact model of Moto G Play

3) The manufacturer's website, motorola.com, shows that the Moto G Play 2021 is compatible with Boost Mobile.

But, let's forget about the specific device.  My question is that it's sold on Boost Mobile's website at a $70 discount.  Your previous comment suggests I would be allowed to purchase a subsidized device from boostmobile.com and activate on the $10/month plan.  Am I understanding that right?

If not, I see no option to pre-select which plan I choose to activate after device purchase.  It looks like I must receive the device, first, and then activate it online.  Would I be blocked from activating the $10 plan with a subsidized device or maybe forced to pay the difference with the suggested retail price?

Thank you.
