    I just recently switched from Verizon(contract) to boost mobile. And while im happy with my service their phones a way overpriced.My problem is that I know pretty much nothing when it comes to cell phone technology.I'd like to buy an unlocked phone to use on boost but I'm confused as to what phones I can use.CDMA,Gsm,LTE all that is Greek to me . I would really appreciate any help I can get. I'm looking to get a GS4 or GS5 and for that kind of money I don't want to buy the wrong thing

    Boost is CDMA and doesn't have many options when it comes to using unlocked phones (like you can with GSM networks AT&T and T-Mobile).

    For the most part you have to buy Boost Mobile phones to use their network, but Boost has a list of some Sprint phones that you can BYOD (including a Sprint Galaxy S4):
