Default Boost pulling SGS2?

I just browsed boost's website and saw that they appear to have yanked the page promoting the SGS2. Sign of things to come (or not to come, rather)?

Oh okay sweet -- I didn't realize that they were going to have another hearing before any potential injunction would come down. Thanks!

That is quite lame, considering Walmart just started selling this as a T-Mobile prepaid phone for $300.

Boost is betting on the "gotta have it" crowd. If past performance is an indicator then within 3 months the phone will drop in price to a more reasonable offering. Look at the Design. Already got offers and discounts going for it.

Yeah, there is definitely a price to be paid for "early adopters".

Just like all the carriers do. I had to laugh at the people camping out for iphone5.

I finally picked my S2 up when Amazon stocked it. FS and no tax gave me the push I needed.

I would expect a price drop around Christmas, maybe Black Friday. 3 months seems the norm for the first reductions.

Personally I hated paying an extra $70 over other prepaid but I love this phone. The downside is I cannot upgrade again for at least 18 months as I see having a phone averaged $20 a month to make it 'worth the price.'

I was skeptical about purchasing mine but I finally said screw it and got it. I I love it! My first Android was the galaxy s3 but I returned it because sprint kept playing around with the price I'd get every month. I I miss it but this one isn't half bad.
