IDEN customer... will I have to switch carriers?

I've been with Boost Mobile for a few years now. Very satisfied with service over the years until now.

When they announced upgrading everything to CDMA and phasing out IDEN, I switched to a CDMA phone a couple months back. 95% of my calls were dropped, terrible signal on CDMA where I live, so returned the phone to Radioshack and went back to IDEN.

Now, my IDEN signal is failing fast. Call quality is horrendous, texts fail to DL. I'm assuming they are phasing out IDEN towers, but I can't get a straight answer from Boost CS. With the CDMA upgrading, does that mean they will be adding more CDMA towers so that I will eventually get CDMA signal where I live? If not, I will have to switch carriers and really hate to do that.

Any res...

Replacing a broken phone..

I have a boost mobile android phone that has been acting up and is not under warranty.

I've had it long enough that my plan is down to $50.00

If I go to a store or ebay and buy another Boost Mobile phone, do I have to start my contract over again. Not sure how this works...

I'm asking everyone to please start requesting that boost add Hot-Spot to the phones. This will allow your phone to be used as hot-spot for your nook, kindle, and ipad. Also like metro we need to have roaming. The more requests maybe we will be lucky. Thank you everyone Very Happy

Question: Android phone with New Phone Reduction Plan

I just purchased an Android with Cricket: Huawei Ascend 2. It costs me about $60 after tax for their service with this phone. I found out Boost Mobile has a better phone plan starting at $50 and reducing down to $35. I understand how it works.

I just bought this phone and paid for one month of service with Cricket today, but I want to switch over to Boost Mobile.

My two questions:
1) Can I unlock my current phone, so I can use all of its features and go through Boost Mobile?
2) If not, is there a Boost Mobile phone which provides me an approximate level of capabilities through a phone which can work with Boost Mobile? My phone uses the Android 2.3 not the 2.2 like the Boost Mobile phones I have seen on their site. Is there another ph...

Boost? Cricket? And the Phone?

Hey, gang. It's the dude from Texas again, hoping some of you all can help clear up a few things that popped up, ironically, while doing my homework for a new phone.
So here's the deal. I've been with Cricket for 2 years, and notwithstanding some customer care issues(after reading some of y'all's posts, it looks like I'm not alone), I've been pretty satisfied.
I now feel that I'm emotionally and mentally prepared to "graduate" to an Android smartphone. This decision did not come without a lot of introspection and deep thought. My therapist was involved, and she agrees with my decision Eh? .
Okay, enough screwing around. Anyway, I'd like to stay with one of the "no-contract" carriers, preferably Boost Mobile because o...

Will boost (Sprint) be getting more towers? Does the CDMA boost coverage match up with Sprint? I wants to love them but these are my concerns. I believe in you boost.

Props to Boost!

Boost was given a JD POWER award for best customer service experience for non-contract wireless service.

As a Boost customer, I have to say that this is well-deserved, since I have no complaints whatsoever about the way the reps do their job, and I confess to being a bit judgmental about it considering my current position.

Then again, it wasn't like there was any competition.

Go Sprint!

Very pleased with service.

I have been with Boost now for about 2+ years.
About 2 years ago, I signed up with there unlimited plan. I was with Verizon under my mom's account. She wanted to start charging me $99 just for a add-a-line because she talked so much.
I have had barely any problems. I did get hit with the text message problem for about a month or so, but it works just fine.
The voice quality is really good, but I do get a few dead spots in more rural Boulder.

I have owned a few different phones over the years. Started with the I215. Not bad for it' s time. I just wish that they would reduce the price of the I1.

So for my two cents, get Boost Mobile. It's a great price!
