    If you are waiting for an iDen phone that isn’t outdated, good luck. When the techlology behind the phones is ancient, you can only do so much and ever since Nextel killed WiDen there hasn’t been much hope. This looks like a nice phone, too bad it still can’t really do anything about not having high speed internet…

    boost mobile is a garbage compeny. there phone are no good they are all ways freezeing up, you get your text messages late and sometimes not at all. my sister and some of my other friends would send me a text in the afternoon and it would be 3 and 4 o clock in the morning when i would get it. and with the boost unlimited plain some of the web sites you go to they charge you for going to them so its not really unlimited when you have to pay for some of the web sites. and if you use you phone to get up in the morning your screwed with them cause i have not seen one that has an alarm. the only thing i liked about haveing a boost phone was the walkie talkie. i could not wait to go back to metro. boost yall need to do better yall want to much money for phones that dont do anything shame on you 🙁

    At the beginning of 09′ when boost implemented there 50 dollar talk, text, web, walkie-talkie plan they didnt’t exspect the huge jump of customers they received therefore there network wasn’t able to handle the huge volume of customers. As of april of 09′ boost updated there network and said “our network is back to normal now”. But i’m still seeing people complaining about slow text or slow web browsing so it looks like to me that people aren’t checking there coverage area before buying there phones. There is some good news for people that prefer the sprint network over nextel iDen network as of last week jan 13th 2010 boost released 3 new phones for cdma network. Meaning these 3 new phones will run of sprint towers but won’t come with ptt (push to talk). Sayno Mirro, Sayno Incognito and the ever popular blackberry 8830 curve. The two sayno phones will still be able to use the 50 dollar unlimited plan while the blackberry will be 60 dollars a month, unlimited talk, text, web, email. Thats half the cost of blackberry plans compared to verizon or att. check out for more details. And no i dont work for boost lol, i’m just a firm believer in prepaid phones over contract phones.
