Usually match during peak hours and about 3/4 during off hours. Pulled 2 megs down the other night on speedtest which was my best so far.

    Soooo... yeah the boost (sprint) network is capable depending on where you live. Just don't abuse tethering like so many have. Vzw just kicked a bunch of their users square in the nuts for illegal tethering despite repeated warnings from just about every developer that the company had begun to track it.

    What exactly has Verizon done, kick them off the network?

    To be honest I've heard of a few similar stories with Sprint from people who claimed to be using 50GB+/m. Not sure if any of those are true or not but that much data does seem a little excessive. Particularly if your mostly using CDMA.

    Yeah would be realy nice if Boost were to get some Evo like device(minus the 4G of course) before long or more likely something closer to the Triumph specs. Of course I wont be able to use one since I'm on PAYGO as I don't use my phone enough for the unlimited plan these days Hell since it would have wifi I would probably use cell service/data even less then my BB.

    The real trick will be to get the 3d and Photon onto boost.

    They arent "on boost".... You mean cloned or "repaired"... just take note, for every cdma phone that stores the esn in the memory of the phone, it will always be possible to edit/change it.

    It isnt anything special, it isnt something only a handfull of people can do, it is a world wide known thing and anyone who wants to use a specific CDMA phone on another CDMA carrier can do so by cloning the original phones esn, MIP ha/aaa secrets, and depending on the phone model, PRLs and IPs.

    Big whoop, ESN cloning has been around longer than most of us have even owned phones.

    Not sure what point you are trying to make here. Obviously it is pretty easy if someone like me who knows basically nothing about programming can watch a youtube video and be able to get an Epic onto boost... or clone or whatever. I dia 611 from my Epic and it says "welcome to boost mobile" so its on boost.

    No, it's not "on" Boost. You're either misinformed or not educated in how the phone/network functions.

    The phone you have "on" Boost can be seen by logging into your Boost account and going to UPDATE HANDSET. It will clearly print the ESN/MEID, and the Make/Model of the phone you have "on" Boost.

    So in that aspect, your Epic is "cloned" to the phone you have "on" Boost.

    Now, we should really keep this thread on topic... the question is, what is your best SPEED when tethering on Boost CDMA?.

    Yes it is on Boost, in that the phone is using Boosts service.
    No it is not on Boost, in that Boost does not think you are using that phone.

    scottydsntknow, many users come in here asking "What phone can I use on Boost?" We answer with the list of phones that Boost recognizes, not with all possible options.

    Howards Forums does not let us talk about putting ANY CDMA phone on ANY carrier. When you say "My Epic is on Boost!!!", it causes problems with the noobs.

    On Topic, I have noticed Boosts speeds slowing down again. Any other heavy user notice that?

    mod edited: no need to make this personal. That will not be tolerated at all

    Me Edited;
    It was not a personal attack, it was a personal complement. He has done and continues to to more for this particular forum than any other poster, by far. 90% it not much of an exaggeration. Unless you disagree?

    Perhaps you jumped the gun?

    No reason at all to let this get personal. If you have issues with each other, take it to pm's. Back to the topic at hand please.

    well my fastest to date was 2.4m but i lost that link so i can not prove it. My signature shows the next fastest speed at 2.1m while tethered, otherwise its always under 700k when i actually power up the phone to test it the few times i use it per month :-)

    This was not tethered, I was able to do a speed test while out today, my home the signal is not full, though before today I thought it was With full signal I was able to get 2.2mb/s down about 640kb/s down. that was in a moving car, No not me driving

    Yeah I could see how it could cause issues and yes boost speeds were crazy a week ago, like verizon fast. They are still decent though, we just got a tower upgrade out here. I actually get way better service as far as signal strength with boost than even verizon when I'm at work.
