So last night in the Big Apple, Samsung held a very quiet and low key event to debut a total of six devices that are headed to prepaid carriers Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile in the very near future. Considering the fact that the event wasn’t on the same scale...

Yep! My dad hates contracts, so I'm going to get my dad to get either a Galaxy S2 4G on Boost or an HTC Evo V 4G on Virgin.

Very good idea. Even though they are over the $300 mark, that's still better than paying the $500+ that carriers charge for a device off-contract. Can't remember the exact amount, but I know they are making a crazy profit from each device sold.

Nice but I wish it was the international version just because it looks better like the button on bottom

400 dollars gives you a phone with no contract, a decent front and back camera, a huge super amoled plus display, ics, 1.2 dual core exynos processor and did I mention NO CONTRACT? Hell of a deal if you ask me. If having fast 4G speeds wasn't such a high priority for me, I'd pick one up myself in a heart beat.

In an earlier thread, you thought the phone would originally go for $299, but I warned you that based on what Ting was selling the phone for, to expect a $399 price.
If you want the same Samsung Galaxy S2, it's $299 at WalMart on the t-mobile / family plan. It's $45 a month but 250 MB of 4G.

Wimax 4G is only in 71 cities. I have had a phone on Virgin mobile and Boost mobile in the past. There 3G network is horrible and unreliable. Can't see paying that much money on a phone unless you are in a 4G city.
