Boost Mobile Reviews
[adsense]Boost mobile was originally created in the year 2000 to offer prepaid wireless services on Sprint networks. Eventually, under several acquisitions, boost mobile along with virgin mobile and other carriers was combined into the Sprint Prepaid Group. Boost mobile prepaid services are offered through Sprint’s CDMA, WiMax, and IDEN networks. IDEN networks are generally known for the walkie-talkie features, generally associated with Nextel phones. There have been statements made that Boost mobile is pushing service on the faster and more popular CDMA networks in the future.
Boost Mobile Reviews-Boost Mobile Coverage
Boost Mobile is offered through Sprint’s Wireless Network. Sprint’s coverage is available throughout many major cities and locations and signal strength can vary depending on whether you are inside or outside. Also, boost mobile roaming does not exist. Meaning, if you happen to make a call from a location where there no Sprint cell phone towers, you are out of luck and will have no signal. Something to consider.
