Default Boost Mobile?!

A few months ago, there were rumors that the LG Marquee was eventually on its way to Virgin Mobile, but up to now, there have been no signs of that. Now it looks like the phone formerly known as the LG Optimus Black might be headed to Sprint's other pre-paid carrier, Boost Mobile.

LG Marquee and Samsung Replenish Leaked For Boost Mobile

This phone would be the only reason why I'd leave Virgin Mobile behind. Quite a bit tired of my Triumph already to be honest. =/

I really haven't heard great things about the Triumph. I almost got that one myself. Another reason to switch from Virgin to Boost would be the ZTE Warp, IMO.

Here is a little preview and the specs for the LG Marquee

I saw somewhere that the release date is on January 23th but can't confirm. Looking at the photos and the specs, looks like it's better than the ZTE Warp.

I bet this isn't possible, but will you be able to use a Sprint-branded Marquee on Boost?

I'm switching soon as this phone drops. The triumph sucks bad. I need to send mine in to be replaced now. _

The phone does have a very nice screen, even in direct sunlight. It runs smooth enough for what I need it for, even with the single core.

There is root available for the LG Marquee already, in case you've missed it. I've been using Ti Backup, Root Explorer, and Superuser with no problems so far. Just hope some attention gets thrown this way and hopefully get a few custom ROMs available.

Anyone here have the LG Marquee on Boost?

If so, how is it running for you?

I really do not care about rooting or ROMS. I am more interested in the stock phone and how it works with Boost.

Thanks.

The root can be found here:
root a marquee?

The below link is for the LG Drivers 3.2.1_2. I've heard some people not being able to get the LG 1.0 drivers to work, myself included, but the 3.2.1_2 drivers worked like a charm:

Ive had mine for 2 days. I must say I am still on edge with the phone. I think the ZTE Warp is a better choice. The Marquee seems to have brain farts....meaning its not as responsive as it should be. I have to tap on apps several times and web browsing can be annoying at times. There are a lot of features that I do love about it but so far I am not that impressed when comparing it to the Warp.

@Knoxville363

Thanks for the info on your experiences with the phone. Please post more of your feedback on the phone if you get a chance.

I am debating on switching from Virgin Mobile to Boost, so I am trying to gather information about the phones on Boost.

I do not trust reviews from magazines (print or online) because they have given good reviews to phones that customers later report as total duds.

Me and my brother are debating between these two. I want to go with the warp, but my concerns are the sound quality, camera, and screen detaching.

well, the screen on the warp should be the least of your worries, the damn freezing and rebooting when using some apps is annoying, the screen problem really hasn't been an issue for me, I am using a soft gel protector and really hasn't been an issue... as for the sound quality, the sound is low, but a download of an equalizer app has solved that problem, the camera, well I don't have any complaints... my next android will probably be a flashed HTC from whoever flashes phones to Boost...

I was thinking of getting some type of store warranty at time of purchase. Is the sound quality like the htc evo 3d? Another concern is if it gets good reception. Im in a not so good coverage area. I'm getting 1-3 bars on my optimus slider. I can't stream at home but it gets the job done otherwise
Thanks

I have no clue on the HTC sound....your optimus running on boosts IDEN network? My old boost pay as you go on their IDEN network I would have hit or miss service at my house. Now that I am on boost android plan and running on their CDMA network, in places in my house that I had no srvice, now get 2 bars minimum....

I just got mine yesterday and I love it. I doubt i'm putting any custom roms up here. To me they cause more issues that they fix. The phone is a little laggy thou. I want to over/under clock mine and play with the voltages. And i'm definitely getting their insurance. Made that mistake with my last phone

Good choice can't go wrong with a boosted EVO.

Ok. So, I have ZTE Warp for Boost, but I am experiencing too many problems lately. Should I give up on the Warp (after only 2 months) and spend almost $300 on the Marquee?!

They have a buy back program, but i'm not sure how it works. You should look into it. What kind of problems are you running into with your phone?

Am considering switching to Boost myself from Virgin Mobile. Although my service has been decent, I am growing a little tired of the smaller display. I am assuming that all of you folks that have the Marquee had to order from Boost's web site online ? I get the deer in the headlights look when I ask BestBuy, Target or Walmart about the phone.

Also to anyone that came to Boost from Virgin how was the process of keeping your old number ? Did the porting process take long ?

...lol... I know exactly what you mean!!! I had the LG OpV (from Virgin) and swithced to the ZTE Warp (Boost). If the phone is not from Sprint, Verizon, AT&T or some well-known contract carrier, most big chain stores won't have the slightest idea of what you're asking about.

As for me, it don't take very long at all. I think it was less than a day.

Yes, I got my Warp online. I used the discount promo (30% off) they had going on in late November/early Decemeber. I couldn't pass it up.

However, if you check out any of my posts in the 'Warp' forum, you will see that I haven't been very pleased with the quality of the device lately. I'm actually thinking about biting the bullet and switching to the Marquee. That was the phone I was originally holding out for in the first place, because I thought it was going to Virgin Mobile, which is what I previously had with the LG OpV.

That was my hope as well. That the Marquee or similar unit would have come to Virgin for the Holidays. I was really counting on it based on the rumors over the last few months. The Triumph just scared the hell out of me so I didn't bite !! It woud be interesting to know how many users Virgin has lost to Boost in the last few weeks. Like I said I love my Optimus V and so does my wife. We were new to Android when we got these devices and took to them quite nicely. Now we just want that additional screen space as we are both getting a little long in the tooth !!

At any rate ... thanks WC
We appreciate the feedback.

I actually got my Marquee off E-Bay for $245!! It was still brand new in the box and it arrived in like 3 days.

If you do decide to go that route, just make sure that the seller has a good reputation.

Also, make sure it is a Boost branded phone, not Sprint

you know whats funny I have been to a couple of Sprint Stores and the different people I have spoke to don't to like the Marquee that much. They all say it has a nice display but... Boost dealers tell you its awesome. From what I have read it seems like a lot people complain about the phone being laggy and a bit slow. So what is it ? I look at the Warp and it seems to loaded with problems with people complaining about dust under screen, lots of freezing and needing hard reboots and low speaker volume along with a cheaper feeling build, how ever people do say how fast and snappy the phone is when it working well. I would love to have in each thread how people are doing. I am so stuck between which one to get I am growing tired of my Prevail.

Amen DaddyZap. Ive been to all the Radioshacks and boost stores around here and none have the Marquee yet. I don't know about everyone else but I like to see and feel a phone in person before I buy one.

You know I kinda get the feeling that Boost newest Androids are turkeys. Take a look at Metro Pcs there LG Esteem, awesome. Its only $20.00 more than the Marquee. Instead of waiting for Boost to lower your monthly plan after having 1.5 years of on time service to get to $40 per month Metro will give you a $40.00 plan upfront or for $50 or $60 you'll get streaming music and video options. Also unlike the Marquee the Esteem's got lots of support, just look at the section here. Everybody seems to love the phone and it seems to be problem free. My only concern is the service, will it work where I need it. Boost/Sprint isnt perfect but it does work pretty well for me.

Default LG Marquee feature for boost?

Ok I have been a previl user since they came out. My Android knowledge has grown, I need a grown up phone. Short of rooting it I am seriously debating upgrading to the Marquee. Does this model have teatherring built in or does it have to be rooted? (I admit I never did get my previl to root, which is sad considering I am an IT geek by trade)

Thanks

I was able to get a wireless hotspot working without rooting just by downloading launcher pro and following these instructions that I found here:

Has anyone w/ Marquee tried wifi tethering yet? - Page 3 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

Download and install Launcher Pro from the market. Its free.
Use Launcher Pro or any other Launcher as your default.
Long press an empty space in your home screen.
click shortcut
click activities
scroll down to com.lge.hiddenmenu
expand com.lge.hiddenmenu
click Data Setting in com.lge.hiddenmenu category
click DUN NAI
and under extend modem change it to no

This will allow you to tether without the charge from Sprint.
I found that this setting has to be changed ever time the phone restarts.
Not a big deal since you create a shortcut with launcher pro

Did you restart and try it again? It definitely worked for me after I created a shortcut to LG Hidden Settings and then changed the settings. I tried using Quick Settings and a controls widget to activate the hotspot, and both worked. There was one step that was a bit confusing. After you click activities, expand com.lge.hiddenmenu, and select (what is for me) the second item down, LG Hidden Menu - com.lge.hiddenmenu.LGServiceHiddenMenu_Settings. That should create a shortcut on your screen. Go into that, select data settings > DUN NAI > Extend modem = NO. Then back out of the menus and it should work, but as it says you will have to set it to NO every time you restart the phone. Hope it works for you.

Thanks Much!

Exclamation Boost shrinkage not offered with marquee.... And unlimited for android phones get a $5 hike

BOOST MOBILE WANTED TO CHARGE ME $55 A MONTH AFTER SWITCHING FROM THE GALAXY PREVAIL TO THE LG MARQUEE! AND THEY SAID THAT SHRINKAGE ISNT AN OPTION FOR THIS SMARTPHONE WITH ANDROID! I ALWAYS THOUGHT PREVAIL WAS RUNNING ON 2.3 GB TOO.... LOL.... SO, BEING THE HARD ASS I AM WHEN IT COMES TO SHIT I PAY FOR ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR YEARS, I CALLED BOOST AND TOLD THEM WHAT I THOUGHT OF THEIR NEW $55 NQA (NO QUESTIONS ASKED) FOR THE WARP, PREVAIL AND MARQUEE..... I BROKE IT DOWN TO THEM IN MY POV, WHICH IS: START F-ING WITH MY BILLS AND WATCH HOW QUIK I CUT YOU OUTTA MY PAYROLE.
Boost gave me my $50 plan back and reinstated my shrinkage plan including my 12 months of on-time payments; I PAY $40/MONTH ONCE AGAIN.
THEY OWE THERE CUSTOMERS SOMETHING IN EXCHANGE FOR OUR CHOOSING THEIR LESSTHAN CONTRACT QUALITY CELL SERVICE; SINCE AT $55 W/O SHRINKAGE, JUST TO HAVE A DECENT FRICKEN PHONE, IS A STREIGHT RIPOFF AS I C IT AFTER 3 YRS WITH EM (UNTIL MAY OR JUNE WHEN SPRINT INCLUDES BOOST IN THEIR NETWORK COVERAGE INCREASE TO BASICALLY EQUAL TO VERIZON'S). I take it personally when it comes to business, especially when it's a company I been loyal to 4 3+ yrs w/ 2 accts, no missed payments, or complaints for the shitty phones they've had till recently. AND AS IF THEY DIDNT GET THEIRS WITH THE $279 THEY SELL THE MARQUEE FOR.

DAMN BOOST..... TAKE UR DAMN VERIZON GOGGLES OFF ....GOTTA LOOK AT THE FACE OF THE PERSON HOLDING THE C-NOTES..... NOT JUST THE FACES THE PAPER..... SO HEED THE ADVICE U GAIN FROM MY DEBRIEF CUZ BOOST DOES HAVE A LITTLE COMPETITION!

DONT TAKE THAT SHIT FROM BOOST... AT LEAST THOSE OF YALL WHO BEEN WITH BOOST & SHRINKAGE B4 THESE CHANGES....

That is odd, they continued my shrinkage when I upgraded to the Marquee. I started at $50/mo. + $5 insurance fee. And with shrinkage it was down to $40/mo. + $5 insurance fee. Now it is a $45/mo. Android Plan plus my $5 insurance fee.

Start: $55 - Shrinkage = $45
Upgraded to a Smartphone (Lg Marquee)
Now: $60 - Shrinkage = $50

Almost had the same issue when I activated my new TU I bought on black friday. I was down from $50 to $40 under the old shrinakge plan.

Old shrinkage plan with galaxy prevail. Paid $40 for service from 11/17/11 - 12/17/11.

Bought and activated new transform ultra on 11/28/11. Charged $45 for new shrinkage plan instead of just an extra $5 to along with my $40 I had just paid 11 days ago.


WTF, paid $40 for service from 11/17 - 11/28. That's 11 days and they charged me $45 for new plan starting 11/28!

Called customer service to dispute this. They credited me 20 days of service ($1.35 a day) since I had only used up 11 days under my old shrinkage plan.

Because I had auto reboost, I didn't realize this until last week. That's over 3 months. Silly me for not checking my statement or the fact that my billing date changed

It worked! Thanks for the detailed instruction.

I am able to hotspot to my laptop. The only issue I'm having now is the hotspot force closes when I try to change the setting from open to secure WPA.

Is it only supposed to be open? I would like to be able to require a password for access.

Also, I can't seem to turn the hotspot off even with it already turned off on the quick setting app. The hotspot icon still shows on the notification bar. I have to restart my phone to get rid of the icon.

-rooted phone
-boost mobile
-and yes, i'm kind of a newbie

I'm not sure about your first question, but I'm pretty sure my connection is secure and it works. I'd have to check again.

And as far as the hotspot icon still showing even after you turn it off with quick settings, I have had the same issue. It happens sometimes. I don't restart my phone though, I've found that if you just go into the settings through the phone's menu instead of through QS and then toggle it on and off again, it will go away.
