Any input provided is appreciated. Thanks.

BTW, the guy that is selling the "flashed" S2 says they are doing away with WiMAX in Tampa anyways, but that just sounds like a sales pitch to me...
im no expert on this but here's what I know.
Boost is Nextel which is Sprint. Sprint is currently loading 4G LTE as their main 4G service. WiMax which Sprint first invested in is a inferior 4G service. However I am currently unaware of their plans for WiMax. Logic says they dump it all really soon and go all LTE. I would invest in an 4G LTE or a 3G phone. Lest you may wind up paying for 4G services you have no access to. Better yet stay away from anything related to Sprint (and especially their 4G) would be a good call another year and a half till they get all caught up UNLESS you can say you have great service where you are. So my suggestion would be go for the 3G with boost if your already enjoying good service through them.
