    I'm considering switching form Verizon to Boost Mobile (because of their unlimited talk and text of course!) and I wanted to know if anyone knows if the Motorola phones that Boost offers(C290, W385, Krzr K1m) MMS work with MPT? If I switch, I want to be able to use the MultiMedia section of MPT. Thanks!!!

    I don't really know that much about Boost Mobile, but they do hey very low prices and they work off of the Sprint PCS Network. But you should be able to use the MPT Multmedia thing. But don't take my word for it, i would wait util someone that has boost Mobile can answer that;)

    Boost uses Nextels iDEN network not Sprints PCS network. Two VERY different networks.

    Actually, Boost uses both networks. For their unlimited minutes plans, the Sprint CDMA network is used. Hence the KRZR, the C290, and the W385 are the phones for the unlimited plans. For the pay as you go and other minute plans, the IDEN network is used.

    Thanks Quint. I forgot they started to use CDMA phones. I just remember the obnoxious commercials hyping the "chirp, chirp" iDEN phones. :D
