When are they ever going to come out with a real touch screen like the Dare and others? That's what people are looking for.

The only one that doesn't get it is you.

Boost isn't a main stream carrier, with monied customers. Its designed to compete with Cricket & Metro PCS. Touch screen phones, by definition, would push $400 price points on a prepay network. Just how many people, who may struggle every month just to pay their phone bill, can afford to plop down 4 bills for a phone?

The i9 could well push 3 bills....and I wonder if I'll even carry it at that price. My Boost customers balk at the $100 for a flip camera phone. I can't imagine them embracing a $300 phone.
