    i heard a commercial on the radio about this today:

    Prepaid & No Contract Cell Phone Plans | Boost Mobile

    double the data, along with unlim talk and text for $10 more then the $35 I currently pay? interesting... (even more interesting is the 10Gb of data for $55, that seems rather insane)

    anyone know much about the boost side and know if it would be worth it?

    goes till nov 3rd so have two months to decide.

    Currently on the $55 plan. It is worth it if u need more data. They both operate on the same network

    Seems boost does have the better deals. Even better than the T-Mobile 30 dollar plan. 10GB for 55 dollars with unlimited talk and text? wow.

    I'd love to switch back to Boost... but their service/coverage/LTE around here is laughable. So no thanks

    i use very little minutes, and keep on hitting virgin's lte data cap, so more data would certainly be a good thing. The other half of the problem would be getting a new phone, and i'm not really impressed by the selection (i don't want another 1.2ghz, 1gb ram phone, which most seem to be)

    service is good here, whole city for the most part has lte and i've got up to 20Mb's. Also about only a little over an hour away from spark which i've seen 50Mb's.

    Your lucky at least. They say there's LTE in this area but everyone that has Sprint at my work, their phones only pick up 3G. I'd love to switch if the service was better. The LG Volt from Boost is on sale for 80 bucks right now.

    Probably not the case but I've noticed that with a tri-band device like the volt you can be right by a tower with active LTE to regular devices but because of the way the radios work you can be stuck on eHRPD (the phone may show that for 3g instead of ev-do). I also noticed that soon after 1x 800 started appear for it I was a able to get LTE from it too.
