Was SO excited about this until I seen Sprint....

I was thinking when I seen Straight Talk offer the Galaxy Precedent that this would be the best deal in the cell market. I mean a CDMA Android phone with a decent processor and screen size on Verizon's network with unlimited everything for $45! What a deal! WRONG. Then I read that Sprint just signed a deal with Straight Talk and the Samsung Android would use their network. Bummer as Sprint's native network is so much worse than Verizon's. My next thought is, WHY would anyone do this with ST? They charge $45 and Boost if you are with them for 18 months lowers there charge to just $35. Plus you can get Boost cards at a discount to face value where that is very difficult to do with ST. Same exact phone, same network, same calling plan ...

You do know Boost is Sprint's baby right?? The CDMA Boost phones work off the native Sprint towers as well so.........

OK, first, let me fix the title for you. "Was SO excited about this until I saw Sprint..." "I" does not ever "seen"

2nd, Verizon and Sprint share roaming agreements all over the country, over mostly the same CDMA frequencies (VZW has 700 Mhz spectrum, Sprint does not. Sprint has quite a bit more 1900 Mhz band than they do.) so in the areas where they have the more penetrable 700Mhz coverage you might maybe notice better call quality with 1 bar of service, at 3 or more bars Sprint and VZW are dead even in quality.

3rd, how in the world is Boost more acceptable to you than Sprint when as you say ST(Android), Boost and Sprint all run on the same network??
