Default Flashed to BOOST, will 4G work?

Considering getting this phone with the intention of using it on my existing BOOST service plan. Have had the Transformer Ultra since its release, but low screen resolution is becoming cumbersome. Screen resolution and 4G capability are the only real differences I'm seeing b/w my current Transformer Ultra and the Epic 4G. Have I overlooked something?

My only unanswered question is, will I be able to use BOOST's 4G network with this phone? There is no difference in plan cost b/w all of their android phones, 3G or 4G. Only thing I have seen them offer differently is that they offer 'hotspot' add on only on their 4G phones, even when some of their 3G phones have the capability.

From what I read, a sprint Wimax phone should work on the boost network, not an lte phone though.

i hate to bear bad news. the answer is no it will not work. the 4g is activated by the plan and not the phone. if you used a htc design it would work. i take it your phone would appear as the ultra. this phone has no 4g plan. sorry

Thanks for the clarification, just realized looking back on what I read, it actually was boost to sprint and not sprint to boost. oops
