Boost Trials Unlimited Calling Using CDMA
Mar 30, 2007, 2:25 PM by (staff)
Boost has begun trials of new unlimited calling plans in select Texas and California markets. Instead of using its customized iDEN handsets, the service is only available over Sprint's CDMA network using a Motorola C290. Because it is using an entry level CDMA phone, subscribers won't be able to use walkie talkie or other Boost features. The service runs $45 to $50 per month for unlimited calls, which is similar to MetroPCS and Cricket's prices. These other unlimited calling carriers already offer service in areas where Boost is trialing its plans.

Sprint Debuts Unlimited Plan of Its Own

Specifically, video resolution is capped at 480p resolution when streamed over the network, while games are capped at 2Mbps, and music is capped at 500Kbps.
Another Step to Unlimited Plans
All of their customers aren't new wirele...
Why not Motorola ic402/ic502
So let me get this straight:
Boost mobile comes out of the block featuring the 2 way radio feature and a tag line 'where you at?' (implying that's what you'd use the 2 way radio for). Now they've decided they'll just ditch that and compete in a price-sensitive, high churn, low margin segment against 2 'low cost' competitors. My fearless prediction is more of the same rhetoric in Sprint's press announcements about revenue, margins, etc. as we'...
I thought Boost was gonna be phased out?
