Boost Mobile lets you refill your account on Facebook, allows gifting to and from friends

Brad Molen

So busy playing networking on Facebook that you can't find time to refill your Boost Mobile account? Your little conundrum has been solved, as the prepaid carrier has set up an app on the social network called Re-Boost for this very purpose. It satisfies the obvious need of filling up your own account at your own free will, but it also hasn't neglected the social aspect: you can refill a friend's account as a gift or even scrounge a few bucks off your connections by sending a request to your network. It's definitely a unique take on an otherwise inconsequential task; perhaps those high school buddies you never talk to would be willing to part with a buck or two in exchange for some Farmville animals. Check out the presser below.

Boost Mobile Launches New 'Re-Boost' Facebook Application

First application to be launch by a U.S. mobile carrier that allows customers to add funds directly to their wireless account via Facebook

IRVINE, Calif. – Boost Mobile, ranked Highest in Customer Service Performance and Purchase Experience among Non-Contract Wireless Providers by J.D. Power and Associates1, is giving its customers an early holiday gift this year – the ability to add money to their Boost Mobile account using the Re-Boost App directly through their Facebook page.

Launching today, the new "Boost Mobile Re-Boost Application" will enable a Facebook subscriber to:

-Add money to their Boost Mobile account via Facebook.
-Request a Re-Boost gift from their network of Facebook friends, which is asking friends for some extra funds to fuel your phone.
-Request a Re-Boost gift by sending a customized email to a friend, which is asking one friend personally for some help.
-Send a Re-Boost gift to a fellow Boost Mobile Facebook subscriber, since it's better to give than to receive.
-Review the last 10 transactions (Facebook Re-Boost requests and gifts).

The Boost Mobile Re-Boost Application can be downloaded to the Facebook subscriber's account by entering "Boost" in the search bar and selecting the "Re-Boost" application from the search results.
