Boost is a pre-paid division of Sprint. The plan that would be used with Androids is $55.00 dollars a month unlimited everything (voice, data, text). Every 6 months you pay on time the amount per month is reduced by $5.00 up until you hit $40 a month. So after 6 months you would be charged $50 and the next 6 months $45 and final after the last 6 months $40.

ZTE Warp is a good phone (although it would seem that there have been bad batches that make the phone prone to automatic shutdowns for some). But if you are planning on buying the phone and then trying to port it on one of the big three don't bother. There are good/better (meaning 4G and more robust screen detail) phones on the three carriers that is why you pay a premium for their service. Not to mention often phones will not port over and your out that money you spent. The reason to buy the ZTE Warp is for the lower cost of being on Boost and the fact that the Warp is one of the best pre-paid phones offered. If you are on one of the big three it does not make sense to get the Warp at least none that I can think of.

Check the baseband on the ZTE(which is CDMA 800/1900) and then check what baseband Bitte uses. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but if they match you might be able to port it over.

erm bitte uses GSM 1800 850/900/1800/1900 or something like that.If so then i have no chance to get it working in my country?

No. The warp is a CDMA phone. That would be like using an AM/FM radio to pick up CB Channels.

The good news so I have heard is that GSM is easy to port. I have heard that all you need to do is get an "unlocked" phone that has the GSM freq of Bitte's network and then find a sim card that works with Bitte. I know CNET reviews a lot of unlocked phones that might be a good place to start. You might also want to find some articles on-line about porting unlocked phones to your network before you shell out money on a new phone. You can search for unlocked phones as a category on ebay. Not saying that all unlocked phones will work but that is the first part of the equation. The more important part is finding a sim card to go in the phone that Bitte's network will accept.
