Default Switch from sprint to Boost?

I have an evo 4g with sprint and would like to go with Boost. I want to keep my evo but after looking around the forums I found alot of conflicting info on the subject. Can my phone be flashed for the boost network? Thanks in advance!

Default 4G speed in an HTC Evo 4g rooted from Sprint to Boost Mobile

I have an HTC Evo 4g that was originally set up for Sprint and is rooted to work with Boost Mobile. It works just fine except for one thing: 4G will connect, but as soon as it does, all data services go off. I am wondering if it is possible to actually get 4G on a Sprint HTC Evo 4g rooted to Boost... Does anyone here know?

From what I understand, and someone can correct me if I am wrong, you will not get 4G service on a boost-flashed Evo.

Mikestony is correct. You won't get 4G on an EVO 4G flashed to Boost.

You may want to call Boost as they will be allowing Sprint phones to be used on Boost soon. Which phones will be allowed is the question.

Sprint phones may be welcome on Boost Mobile very soon

EDIT: Since your phone is already flashed to Boost, this wouldn't apply to you.
