I'm about to jump to Voyager from Virgin Mobile. It looks like a pretty good deal. They now have a "bring your own phone" program which allows most sprint phones with a clean ESN to be activated on their network. They do exclude Iphones, Blackberry, and Push to Talk phones.
Good signs so far:
I called their customer service number to ask them about the details and hidden gotchas. I was surprised to not be greeted by a, dial this number and that number to get a rep, menu. There was an actual, knowledgeable voice on the other side and that voice spoke clear, calm English. I didn't feel rushed thru my questions and didn't hear a thousand voices in the background.
The gentleman I spoke to assured me Voyager does not throttle at all! Ever! Their system is not set up to even allow throttling.
So here's what it looks like it will cost me.
$258 for a used HTC EVO 4g LTE on Ebay.
$25 one time activation fee on Voyager (no fee to swap your account to a different phone).
$39 per month + misc taxes (different based on where you live, I live in Oregon)
Total per month $46
Pretty good deal for truly unlimited Talk, Text, and 3G/LTE 4G.
