I see they will limit the phones you can get with the "pay as you go" service but you will get LTE service on a couple. I wonder with the rumor that they want to buy Clear if they will keep Boost/Virgin WiMax and have the "pay as you go" service be the only pre pay they offer with LTE. It just doesn't seem to be a reason to go back to Sprint unless they are going to pull something shifty... Interesting...
Yep, that is true. I went into a sprint store a couple of days ago, looking to get my wife a new boost phone. I figured they would have a better selection than Walmart, looked around, didn't see any boost phones...So I asked if they carried them. They said, "We no longer carry them, as Sprint is coming out with their own Pre-paid service" I thought that's the point of Boost...But apparently sprint stores will not carry them (but doesn't verizon carry their prepaid subsidiary phones? when they have their own prepaid too?
