HTC EVO Design 4G coming to Boost Mobile on May 31
Just like Virgin Mobile, Boost is getting its very first 4G smartphone – a smartphone that will use the Sprint 4G WiMAX network. The device in question is the HTC EVO Design 4G, which Sprint has been offering since last October. But while there don't seem to be any hardware changes made to the handset, the out-of-the-box software has been improved. Most notably, the smartphone comes with Android 4.0 out of the box, so no need to wait for an update to start rolling out.

The HTC EVO Design 4G will set you back $300 without the need for your signature under a 2-year carrier agreement. Of course, you will want to pair it with a 4G data plan, which starts at $55 per month, although that figure will be gradually reduced to $40 after 18 months, as long as you pay your bills on time. Included in that $55 data plan are unlimited texts and nationwide calls.

Those of you who are interested in getting the HTC EVO Design 4G from Boost Mobile can do so starting May 31.

I have to say, I'm impressed with Sprint for releasing the EVO 3D for Virgin Mobile USA and the EVO Design for Boost Mobile. Prepaid customers don't deserve to get left in the dust just because they don't want to be tied down to a commitment.

Anyone here a Boost Mobile customer? How are the data speeds in the Tri-State area? My wife has Virgin Mobile. Her motorola triumph was great when we first got it, but we've been noticing that her data speeds are getting slower and slower, she can't stream a youtube video, even in a full 3g area. Does boost have this problem?

yes im a boost mobile customer ive been for about 6 to 9 years now, never once changed my phone number anyways im already down to the 40 dollar plan unlimited starting at 55 a month after 18 months with the shrinkage.. anyways tri state what? and i heard that triumph isnt a good phone due to the crappy service it gets the data speeds are gonna get slower due to the population of the world switching to sprints networks and 3G is becoming pretty regular with almost every phone and unlimited web 3G off sprints network, if its CDMA phone its off sprints network mainly with prepaid devices anyways you wont be able to do that off the 3G towers anymore with more people using the network the slower the speed is gonna get, deal with it or use wifi.. anyways 4G might be able to but eventually everyone is gonna be on that network also well unless they keep the 3G and then the 4G will seperate the majority of everyone being on 3G know what i mean? sprints gotta upgrade and update their towers and data network to have more throughput/output to keep their customers satisfied otherwise they will lose business anyways virgin mobile and sprint contract phones and virgin mobile and straight talk are all off sprints towers just different carriers and different phones price wise boost and sprint phones contract and virgin mobile phones will have this problem also along with straight talk.. i hope this answers your question pathmarkpolice
