After 12 full months yes. Buying the 12 month plan won’t make the phone unlock any faster, you still need to have active service for 12 months before they will unlock it.

Newer internals (but probably not noticeable day-to-day), cool form factor (subjective of course), but worse cameras and battery life.

Not really an upgrade if you already got the S21, unless you are a gadget person that loves the new form factor.

I don't see that on promo page but this:

Order your phone today
Wait for your phone to arrive
Pick a plan and activate online

There is a dedicated part of the website that covers their unlocking policy, it applies to all of their phones.

Unlocking Policy
Domestic SIM Unlock (DSU) refers to enabling the SIM slot of your device to allow you to insert another carrier's SIM card. SIM unlocking a device will not necessarily make a device interoperable with another carrier's network. Additionally, SIM unlocking a device may enable some functionality of the device but not all (e.g., a SIM unlocked device may support voice services but not data services when activated on a different network). NOTE: Not all devices are capable of having the SIM slot unlocked.

Please note, Boost Mobile devices which the owner has attempted to reprogram or activate on another carrier's network or otherwise alter from its initial programming or settings may not be able to be reactivated with Boost Mobile services.

Boost Mobile will only activate devices certified to work with Boost Mobile services. Boost Mobile cannot unlock phones from other carriers.

General Eligibility for Unlocking

Boost Mobile will assist with unlocking a device under the following circumstances:

The device is SIM unlock capable
The device has not been reported as lost or stolen or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked
The device has been active on the associated account for at least 12 months
The associated account is active and in good standing
If you believe you meet the above requirements and would like to request that your DSU-capable device be unlocked, contact Boost Mobile Customer Care by dialing 1-888-BOOST-4U.

Sorry for my ignorance. The promo specifically said pick a plan which mean I can choose the lowest no contract plan of $15/month. It doesn't say anything about the 12 months locked in. So explain to me how does that work with no contract plans?
You are not locked in a contract meaning you can stop paying for the service anytime you want and just use it on wifi if you want; however the phone itself is locked to boost mobile service and will not work under any other service provider, only boost mobile. If you put another carriers SIM card inside the phone, it won't read it. They will only factory unlock the phone after 12 months of active service with them, then you can use any other carrier you want.

Thank you for posting this! I just finished with Best Buy chat and they were able to price match it for me as well. Had to order the Phantom Black (Unlocked) for $999.99 online and they then issued a refund for $400.

So did you have to activate the phone at BB or just bought it unlock and walked out with the phone for $599?
