How do I sign up for the $5 Todo Mexico PLUS add-on?

The $5 Todo Mexico PLUS add-on is available only for any eligible Boost Monthly plan. If you are a Boost monthly plan customer, you can sign up for the add-on or upgrade your plan via My Account or through your local authorized dealer.

REMEMBER, adding the add-on will increase the TOTAL cost of your monthly payment amount (monthly plan cost + add-on cost). Also, this is a recurring plan add-on; it will remain attached to your monthly plan and account until you remove it.


How and when do I need to pay for the add-on?

The $5 Todo Mexico PLUS add-on is a recurring monthly plan add-on, with the add-on cost being added to the total amount due for your monthly plan services. The new total plan cost must be paid at the same time you pay for your monthly plan services and is due on your existing monthly payment due date. If your account balance cannot cover both the cost of your monthly plan services AND the $5 Todo Mexico PLUS add-on (or any other recurring plan add-ons, if any), by your monthly payment due date, all of your services will be interrupted until sufficient funds to cover the total costs of your plan cost and additional services, if any, are added to your Account.
