two more 600mhz phones.
The fiction will see the real.
no they might get the marquee though may 2-3 months after boost has it
What was it that they were calling it ???... hmmmm, WiMax ?
4G devices on Virgin Mobile.
A Viper on Virgin Mobile.... now that would be oh so much better than yet another 3G Optimus.
Operating without a contract makes you far more valuable.
I'm content with my Optimus V, but it would be nice if they put out some better options. I know it's no-contract, and I know that they're trying to market Boost as the higher end Android devices, but it's a stupid move on their part. They should just merge Boost and Virgin together, considering they're almost exact.
Sprint wastes more money on marketing for 2 seperate no-contract services that are virtually identical, when they could just merge them, which would be less money on marketing, and more money on better phones.
It's not going to be Wi-Max as the article referenced 4G LTE.
Sprint has to pay Clearwire per 4G device, it was part of the bundled 10.00 smartphone up charge. Prior to that you paid the premium if you bought a 4G device even if there was no 4G coverage in your area.
Clearwires 4G footprint is about the size of your bathroom. Wi-Max is absolutely terrible signal wise since it runs on the 2500mhz frequency. It has a hard time penetrating a straw hut let alone a brick and mortar building. I was recently in Philadelphia (an alleged strong Wi-Max area) and I tried running some speed test while in the car and could never complete the test due to is loosing and then re-acquiring the signal.
The article indicates that "someday" LTE will find its way to Sprint prepaid but don't hold your breath, it's going to take a while to get it up and running across the country. Only then will it roll out on prepaid and you can bet your bottom dollar it won't be offered on the 25.00 beyond talk plan.
This thread is going off topic (yet again) but I'll gladly discuss your inaccurate thoughts in the anything goes thread.

Recall the Music related PULSE SURVEY from a few months ago...
I think we now have a candidate that fits that....
Currently available at a Sprint mvno.... http://www.prepaydwireless.com/arrive.html
Not too bad and a $35 Beyond talk service option too...
If a Windows phone were to find itself on VM (which I would like too) I would rather go for the Lumina 710 or 800. IF either one came to VM I am sure it would be the lower end 710 since VM loves to get the slowest most low end phone available from a manufacturer.
HTC: We have decent 3.7 and 4 inch phone available for around 250.00
Boost: we'll take both!
VM: it looks nice, but do you have anything in the 600 MHZ range with a 3.2 inch screen we can sell for 300.00?
