Default URL/link mismatch

It seems like there may be a problem with the URL link for the Boost Mobile forums. I've tried using different browsers, even a different device, to make sure its not an error on my part. I receive a 404 when I try to access the Boost forums from phandroid.com/carriers-new/ (this is the page you access when you click "all carriers" in the pop up menu when you hover over "carriers" near the top of the page).

The URL link provided for the Boost forums is phandroid.com/categories/boost-mobile and the actual URL is androidforums.com/boost-mobile/

I would normally expect a redirect when a URL has changed, so I don't know if there's a problem with a redirect or if the URL needs to be updated for that link.

Just thought I'd post this issue.

Actually I don't think it's supposed to link to android forums.

I tried the other carrier links and some are also 404ing, but the ones that are working are still leading to phandroid pages, with news articles relating to that carrier.

Can someone provide a list of all broken URLs in the navbar?
