Under Network what does it say on your phone?

Do you have a Boost version? A Sprint version? Metro PCS?!?!

Running MIUI, and when on 3G network says unkown, even after reboot.

I am on FH29 so I would guess Boost.

OK. I'm confused now. So people on Sprint have Sprint or Boost have Sprint or is it Sprint regardless of who your real carrier is?

I have found that the Galaxy S II in general is not a slanted toward Boost thing like my prevail was (the prevail had Boost plastered on it like a freaking billboard even the case of the phone had it on it).

I loved that ( & still do ) about the S2 when I openend the box, not Boost branded a every possiable location... Not a big issue but was kinda tacky on the ZTE WARP I upgraded from.. call me vain if you like

Boost is Sprint buddies. Sprint owns boost and we use sprints towers. So all of our phones say Sprint

It's more a label thing. I believe most people know that Boost phones run on the Sprint network. It is just that many of Boost's phones would say boost when connected. The Prevail would say boost on the home screen (until I got rid of the stock ROM). There are still minor differences between being on Boost or a regular Sprint customer. Your phones user name will be "yourname"@myboostmobile.sprintpcs.com, but at least it isn't a tacky billboard thing like it used to be..
