"BoostBerrys" What you know about that?!

Lol, I just wanted to throw this out there to see if any members know of "boostberrys" or blackberrys fixed to work on BoostMobile and utililize their mms/internet(fixed service books) for $50/mo with their UNLTD' plan. People have been doing it for a while with the older nextel blackberries and it's now becoming more prominent with the BlackBerry 8350i. (I myself have 1 on the way and im bidding on two others as a little project i guess.)

Re: "BoostBerrys" What you know about that?!

I was using an 8350i up until about a week ago when I swapped from boost IDEN to boost CDMA (~$1.58/mo more (not advertised but available on request)) now running a Sprint HTC Diamond on my unlimited $51.58/month plan through boost. The nextel "chirp" was covenant for the total of 3 people I have in my contacts list that also have nextel/boost. I recently read over at the howardforums that you were able to swap to boost's cdma network and use sprint phones doing that, tried it and is MUCH better (unlimited calls, sms, mms, web using sprint's 3g network) for those who don't feel like signing a contract its a pretty nice alternative.

Service books for the 8350i on Boost Mobile are a variation of Sprint's. Everything works (internet, BB Browser, talk, MMS), but BB Messenger and Push Mail although there are workarounds for Push Mail. There are also IM clients that will work.

I've used the 8350i on Boost Mobile since July with no problems.
