    I cant imagine those sims costing more then .20c to make in bulk. Small price to pay for a customer.

    When I activated my gf's phone on Sprint and they gave me a free sim, the credit card size sim holder had all 3 companies logos on it
    Sprint / Boost Mobile / Virgin Mobile

    Sprint Lg g3 available on ebay for 189.99 free shipping. Sold as "used A-" supposedly they've alreadly been re-sku. The seller claims to be a boost dealer. Search 'boost g3'.

    Regarding these phones you can bring over to Boost from Sprint. When i buy one does it matter if the phone is Locked or Unlocked?

    Sorry, Boost currently does not list that phone as one you can bring to their network.

    They must have removed it. I promise it was there under the S6 for the last few days. Boost did the same thing with LG G3 a while back. You're right...the list changes very little.

    Yeah, the Boost branded G3 and BYOD option was short lived.

    I bought the Boost branded G3 and it is great, but I sure wish I could have saved about $200 with the Sprint version.

    I bought the sprint version and loved it until it decided it wanted to go swimming in my pond.

    At least the catfish have a phone now lol

    Can an iphone 4...be used with Boost?
    I think it was on Verizon originally
    It was disabled so I restored it via itunes and now needs activation

    This phone was literally thrown out ...I charged it up and restored it via itunes but apparently is still linked to some acct somewhere and it wont let me activate it

    This BYOP list still shows no love for LG

    Samsung-
    Note5 current model, Note 4,3,2 allowed
    S7 current model, S6, S5, S4 allowed

    Apple-
    iPhone 6 current model*allowed, 5 allowed

    LG-
    G5 current model,
    G4, G3 NOPE
    G2 allowed

    HTC, ZTE, Motorola, Nexus = SOL (HTC Hero Released 2009, Android cupcake allowed)

    I wonder if companies have to pay Sprint to put phones on this list. Sprint doesn't even sell G3's or G4's on their site.

    So I was looking on eBay to get a note 4 and saw a store selling G3s branded for boost. Would those still be able to be activated even though they aren't on the phone list anymore?

    Yes. I bought one for my girlfriend. And i bought a sprint G3 when it was on the list. They're both identical. Best phones we ever owned. Expect a few scratches though but the screens were perfect, i think the seller listed it as -A condition. Also seller says they're a boost dealer and is probably still allowed to activate it. I saw the galaxy s6 edge on the byosd list a couple months ago but it was only on there for one day.
