Could you bring the incredable to other networks?

Would you be able to bring this phone to any other network?

Is Boost Mobile a cdma network or a gsm network ?
If it's not a cdma , no chance.

Boost mobile is nextel: CDMA
(not my answer)

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_boost_mobile_cdma_or_gsm

and Sprint gobbled them up so yeah, Sprint, but that doesn't jive with the fact that Virgin Mobile is there pre-paid carrier

Re: Could you bring the incredable to other networks?

Well, I knew sprint owned boost, and I knew both sprint and boost were CDMA...but I was asking if this phone would be able to be activated/used on boost mobiles network.

Evo apparently cant be used on boost even as a 3G from what i've been told. And Evo can't even be used on verizon as well. So, now I'm trying to find out if the Incredible can be used on either sprint or boost.

I trust you guys waaaaaay more then I trust CSRs in any company reading from a script.

Re: Could you bring the incredable to other networks?

OK here is how it usually goes , Sprint will not activate vzw phones on their netwoek and vzw will not activate sprint phones on their network. They always check the esn #s.

I suggest you talk to Santod then, he got a Sprint TP1 working on the VZ network before VZ even had it, so it is possible.

Re: Could you bring the incredable to other networks?

Not sure if I should start a seperate thread for this or not, but.......

I think I found what would be the best case scenario.

100 daytime minutes 500 night minutes + insurance + data + taxes (in my area) come to..............about 75 final bill.

On top of that, this is with verizons network. With the Incredible.
Also on top of that, you can retroactively upgrade your plan (just for that individual month, then the next month it goes back to normal) if you DO go over your minutes.

There seem to be some hidden plans verizon doesn't list. Heres what I found:

50 minutes daytime, 250 night time minutes - 20 bucks + 30 for data + 5 for 500 text messages + 7 for insurance + your local tax ???? = FINAL BILL 62 + ???(tax)

100 minutes daytime, 500 night time minutes - 25 + 30 for data + 5 for 500 text messages + 7 for insurance + your local tax ???? = FINAL BILL 67 + ??? (taxes)

300 minutes - nights and weekends unlimited - 30 + 30 for data + 5 for 500 text messages + 7 for insurance + your local tax ???? = 72 + ??? (taxes)



Does anyone else know any other hidden plans verizon doesn't want you to know?

Re: Could you bring the incredable to other networks?

Also with this phone you have to have the $30.00 a month data plan that all smartphones have to have.

Re: Could you bring the incredable to other networks?

Like the data only package?

$59.99 with unlimited data / unlimited texting
so without voice your saving about $10-15 a month after taxes

$39.99 + $29.99 data = $70 then you have tax etc

its not on the website you have to sign up for this special plan either in-store or on the phone. A rep called me the other day to ask if i wanted to since i don't use voice all that often, while it would save me a little i don't think it will help me in the long run if i ever need to use voice etc, it always comes down to if i were to do this, chances are i would need the voice all the time vs now when i don't even need it. thats how life works it seems lol

but i also get employee cost too so that helps a little but it doesn't discount data
