    I think they have a conferenxe set up already for the week prior to this. I think they'll be unveiling the note 2 then.

    My guess would be either the Epic 4G or the Galaxy SII. I don't see an announcement for an LTE phone for Boost or VM this year. Though, to make it "exciting", perhaps they will have Jellybean preloaded.

    Won't be the s3 since the phone doesn't support WiMAX.It's either a brand new phone or they will officially announce the s2 for boost and maybe a different phone for vm.imo it wouldn't make sense for them to make new phones for boost and vm but who knows

    It won't be the Nexus, as the Nexus has LTE.

    Just realized released the Nexus as the LTE version, I let my excitement get ahead of me. Probably the S2. Blah.

    Edit: Then again, I never thought we'd get a 4G phone.

    Is it possible that they could announce the nexus s? I never understood why we couldn't have the cdma nexus s anyway. It's old enough, but it's still a nexus, so I'd be happy at around $250 for it. Just being hopeful I suppose.

    Hmm. I now am curious. What on earth could they announce for both Sprint based prepaid carriers? Yes it's a new phone. Is it simply new to us or is it a newer phone? Or is it even a phone at all?

    The rumor I read is that Virgin is getting the Samsung Galaxy Reverb, and Boost is getting the Epic 4G touch.

    If you guys really want a good selection of phones you should go with tmobiles prepaid..you buy any tmobile phone you want..the galaxy note...sgs3..one s...gnex..s2..buy a 99 cent T-Mobile sim card...and sign up for a prepaid plan ad low as 30 dollars a month..and enjoy a high end device...with way better coverage and speeds then sprint..and still pay nickels each month

    The problem some people have with the t-mobile plan is the lack of minutes on the high data plan, you get 100 or 200 minutes and a bunch of GB of data, or you can have a bunch of minutes and barely any data.

    I'll stick with vmobile and my texting impaired EVO V for now.

    I was going to go with TM but they don't have HSPA+ in my area yet and their S3 doesn't support LTE. So that means I need to spend big bucks on a phone that can't support the network they are rolling out in 2013 and I doubt they will roll HSPA+ out to new areas after that.
