Looks like U.S. Cellular isn't the only carrier that'll finally be adding the iPhone to its lineup next month. Boost Mobile announced this morning that it too will be launching both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on Nov. 8.

Boost hasn't said anything about its pricing for the new smartphones, but it did reveal that the iPhone will be compatible with its $55 unlimited talk, text and data plan. That offering includes 2.5GB of high-speed data per month as well as Shrinking Payments, which reduces a customer's monthly payment by $5 for every six on-time payments, down to as low as $40 per month

Apple's iPhone has been a member of Boost Mobile parent company Sprint's lineup since late 2011, and it then arrived on the shelves of Boost prepaid sibling Virgin Mobile in mid-2012. It's been kind of strange to see iPhones on both Sprint and Virgin but not on Boost Mobile for so long, but the good news is that now it won't be long before Boost customers can begin using Apple's iOS hardware to ask that age-old question, "Where you at?"
