    We're definitely getting the SII.
    I'm receiving collateral on it.

    Not sure when it'll be up for sale in stores and online though. Pretty soon I'm thinking considering I'm being told to put out the clings already.

    P.S These are pictures from the mandatory package that shows what collateral I've received from the shipment.

    I've been confirmed by a member who actually came to my store physically.

    Thanks for thinking I'd be that malicious.

    P.S Want to verify? Call me Monday. 210-680-4430. My name is Lucia.
    Better yet, Go to Boost Mobile and look for stores near 78238.
    You'll see that number.

    Lmao. I get calls where people don't talk and they seem to just like my greeting.

    "Hi thank you for calling Boost Mobile by Click Communications, This is Lucia speaking, How may I help you today?"

    Any idea on the cost? And I assume the "4G" is Wimax?

    The Sprint version is definitely WiMax, according to the specs for the Sprint version - if you click the "features" tab, there is a graphic that reads "4G WiMax".

    I realize that's not a definitive answer to your question about the VM version, but in my opinion, the most likely outcome is that we're going to get that same WiMax phone with whatever minor software changes are necessary to optimize the phone for VM. Your guess is as good as mine, but I think the smart money is on WiMax.

    I hope that price proves to be correct or close. "Full price" on Sprint.com is $499.99. Obviously, I like the lower price!

    Awesome!!!!! Well, I guess I'll have to scrape up some extra dough, but I'm glad it will be here before the end of November. My account with Boost runs out on the 24th.

    Why wouldn't I buy the Nexus 4 16 GB instead? It's a much better value.

    -Does not work on Sprint or Verizon
    -No external memory slot (as far as I can tell)

    - Quad Core
    - Bigger, nicer screen
    - Latest updates from Google
    - Probably faster speeds than Virgin with HSPA+ 42

    And because HSPA+ is technically 3G, it's easier on the battery. HSPA+ 42 can be just as fast most times.

    But can you get it on a cheaper plan? $35 is a pretty attractive deal.

    T-Mobile $30/month, no contract, unlimited data, but 5GB @ 4G speeds. HSPA+ is far faster than WiMax in most areas where the two services are available from all the studies I've seen. IMHO, far better deal than the long in the tooth G2 (unless you absolutely need 32GB memory).

    I think you'd be happier with the GSM Nexus 4. Definitely faster on T-Mobile than with VM USA. My speeds on VM were no where near the speeds I get now. No bloatware, OS updates before anyone else, can take the phone with you and change carriers if you're not happy with your current.
