Can i buy a boost phone without a plan and unlocked?

Can i buy an pre owned iphone 7 plus from boost mobile and not use a boost mobile plan? I want to just use my phone as an Ipod without an phone plan. Does it come with a plan? Will they charge me each month? Or does it come unlocked? I do not want a phone plan at all. 

 

Also can i switch it to Verizon later on when i want a plan?

Yes, you can. You just have to activate it if you want to have calls, messages and data service.

Hi there, reba. Thanks for contacting us. 

 

All phones come locked and have to be activated for 12 months to qualify for unlocking. You can find frequently answered questions about unlocking here:
