    The Dark Side is calling. But Boost wont show more byop on the list.
    My gf is back to Sprint for her Nexus 6 - and cut your bill in half. $40 10GB

    Im itching to switch to a MotoX Pure white 64gb unlocked, but would have to go back to Sprint.
    I like the Motorola design, pure Android, and no bloatware on both phones.

    If I do, both accounts would only be $30 with same unlimited and 10GB - for 2 years no contract


    I WANT to stay with Boost, but they arent helping :)

    Boost won't help. And being on sprint would at least grant priority to your signal over either of their prepaid choices. So you would be seeing faster data and better overall service dealing directly with one of the major carriers.

    Actually I've encountered really good customer service from MVNO's, smaller independent companies are more motivated to attract customers than the major carriers. Also, if you do have documented evidence that you get faster data speeds with one of the major carriers than with a MVNO that's contracted with that same carrier, you should find a lawyer as you've got a major law suit in your pocket. Those contracts stipulate that the primary carrier cannot throttle or in any way traffic shape their network, there's no differentiation between customers with either service.

    I think what is meant is.

    ATT full speed, Cricket throttled to max 6mbps.
    T-Mobile full speed , MetroPCS deprioritized if tower busy, behind T-Mobile accounts.

    But Boost is the same speed as Sprint. Not prioritized behind "Sprint" customers.


    I can speedtest my Boost Lg G2 and gf's Sprint Nexus6, same speeds same locations. There has never been any speed slowdown on Boost, since I started with them in Nov 2014. Just wish they allowed more phone choices.

    Well, I won't speak more on this because Boost decided to royally screwjob me, along with Sprint proper itself.

    I had since moved on as of Black Friday 2014, and I'll leave it at that.
