Question: Android phone with New Phone Reduction Plan


Sep 3, 2011, 1:29 AM
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...

1) NO

2) NO

Sorry, you get what you pay for. 2.2 is generally good enough though.

Alright thanks. I ended up switching to the 2.2 to get the better service pricing. It still meets my needs. Thank you.

I wish the people on the national carriers would make wise choices as you have. I have Metro PCS and it more than suits my needs at $45 per month.

I am thinking to switch to Boost Mobile after being with Verizon for 7 years as I can not afford their pricing and I want to use a smartphone where I can get free access to the internet for google and email. I would appreciate feedback re: Boost and how they work. Thanks alot.

My wife uses Boost now and service is great. Of course all service is local and could be different where you are.

3G speeds are fast enough for nearly all applications including Netflix.
