Jess Im sorry to say that you are misinformed. Call waiting and 3 way calling DO NOT require a second line. Currently the way Boost mobile has their billing software set up, it will not allow these features to work, a second line has nothing to do with it. Much like land based phones, as well as other carriers such as Nextel, the system is in place to allow these features to function, all on the same line of service. A second line is just that a second line, seperate phone number and all. Once the billing software is in place properly, you can expect Boost Mobile to offer these services.

Now as for Direct Talk (aka MotoTalk) it is not offered on the boost phones from the factory, but can be enabled via the code plug. There is no billing of the Direct Talk feature as it is an off network walkie talkie, much like the FRS and GMRS radio services. Now I would venture to say that in the future that Boost Mobile could unlock this feature remotely, much like they did the voice record and such on the i215 and i205 mobile phones.

As for the group connect billing issue, again since Boost Mobile is for the individual consumer, there is no effictive way to bill the end user. Unless Boost Mobile was to offer bulk purchasing and plans much like the Nextel brand then it could be billed correctly.
