    I am just wondering:

    On the Boost IDEN, mobile to mobile exists between Sprint and Boost per the Boost website, if the Boost user pays for it and/or selects the appropriate plan. I assume that the Sprint users are able to talk to these Boost users using their m2M minutes.

    Does mobile to mobile apply for Sprint customers calling the Boost Unlimited phones? I would assume so since Sprint owns them, but I wanted to be sure.

    Yes Boost Mobile does count as mobile to mobile whether you have a Sprint, Nextel or Boost phone and no matter who's calling who among those phones.

    I thought Nextel to Sprint was NOT M2M? Was this changed sometime in the past and I did not realize? I have the 49.99 Unlimited Incoming Nextel plan.

    It depends on what Nextel plan you have. The newer plans have M2M included. If yours doesn't, you either have to change plans or pay for it. In the beginning some Nextel folks had to pay for it. I just went to the sprint site and there is one plan where the M2M isn't included: the free incoming plans with unlimited Direct Connect included.

    Nextel to Sprint and vice versa has always been M2M ever since the merger was finalized and the the M2M was enacted in 2005.

    Thanks for the answer I only asked cause when I had Sprint the Sero rep told me it was not this way on Sprint to Nextel not the other way around. Should have known better to believe a rep 100%.

    It's absurd for any rep to tell you that. Part of the reason that Sprint and Nextel wanted to merge was so that they could bring their customers together to create a larger M2M calling base. The Sprint/Nextel M2M feature was one of the very first things the comapny did back in 2005. I have to say I'm surprised that you all weren't aware of this 3 years later.

    Part of it is the fact that Boost is operated as though it's not related to Nextel, even though it works just like it without a contract. Since Boost is Nextel's prepaid offering, it definitely is part of the M2M network with Sprint, but it doesn't seem that obvious.
