Switched from Sprint in 2006 and saw no differenceBy Jack Toering, posted: Sep 29I started with Nextel, which later became Sprint/Nextel. It gave me good service. I then switched to Boost, and there was no difference except the price. Then I tried a cheap CDMA phone, and it worked well, and then I went with a Touch Pro2. Approximately 3 years ago for a 6 month period texts were slow in arriving, but the Sprint users had the same problem. After that I never had a problem. Other family members went to it and had no issues either. The only reason they are on anything different now is their places of employment supply them with phones on the network they chose. I would believe a lot has to do with where you spend most of your time as how satisfied you are. In our area, Michigan's lower peninsula, the Sprint network is at least as good as Verizon's, and AT&T is very scattered. Whenever I'm out of state, Sprint has always had the major streets and highways covered. If you get 20 miles off the beaten path, then Verizon tends to work better now that they bought Altel, and Boost does not include roaming. Altel owned the pucker brush. With Boost, I drop about 2 calls a year, and only while driving. A Verizon user took me all over the countryside one Sunday to prove Verizon covered more area and could not. (Actually, I beat him in one place, but it was a faint signal, and the difference more likely to do with the difference in phones) The beauty of Boost is you never have to think about minutes or data usage because your bill won't change. For $35 you get 1 GB of LTE data usage. If you go over they drop you to 3G. For $10 more you can boost that to 5 GB of LTE data. It has been wonderful! If you you watch TV or stream music, and travel a lot, you'd be better off with Verizon, which uses the world-wide standard LTE, and has more LTE coverage. Sprint uses an LTE standard that nobody else uses, is incompatible with regular LTE, and runs at ~1/2 the speed. For me, all I need is navigation occasionally, and looking up phone number and location of the nearest whatever. However, with Verizon, you will pay 2 to 4 times as much. One can say you get what you pay for, but I might counter with most people are paying a lot of extra money for service they are not using.

Crap boostBy Kushi Perera, posted: Aug 30I got connected on Wednesday, they took 3 days to port my number, I had to call so many times and be harsh with them, other wise i have to wait till next Monday or so, they give promises that they can't meet, somebody has to take them to court and learn a good lesson, very disappointed. customer service told me they will call me back, never bother to call back. not happy at all, crap boost.

Nboost sucks.By Michael Watson, posted: May 15Even the Dealer said it is the worst cell company. Customer service is a JOKE. Dropped calls, people call but phone doesn't ring. What a Class action suit this companydeserves. Hate Boost mobile, and Sprint can go to hell together.

Boost Mobile is GREAT for the priceBy Kristin Farky, posted: May 11I had T-Mobile for years (back in the Sidekick days), and got fed up with their fee increases and horrible customer service. I switched to Boost Mobile, and I've been very pleased!!!! My Samsung Galaxy Prevail broke so I ordered a new Moto G. I began to activate it online and was prompted to pick a new $55 plan, so I emailed Customer Service because I've been paying $35/mo. They called me back well within 24 hours, apologized graciously, and helped me set up the Moto G for $40/mo. This is not the first time they have graciously helped me deal with a problem! The shrinking payment plan is awesome. :) A lot of people are complaining about poor service, but you merely need to check the coverage map before you think about buying a plan for ANY provider. Also, a little politeness goes a LONG way. The Rep you're speaking to is probably not directly responsible for whatever issue you're having...if you've ever worked in sales/food service you'd know this!
