It's more a label thing. I believe most people know that Boost phones run on the Sprint network. It is just that many of Boost's phones would say boost when connected. The Prevail would say boost on the home screen (until I got rid of the stock ROM). There are still minor differences between being on Boost or a regular Sprint customer. Your phones user name will be "yourname"@myboostmobile.sprintpcs.com, but at least it isn't a tacky billboard thing like it used to be..
