    I am unsatisfied with Sprint service and network in my area. Does any one know how to unlock the phone to use with possibly Boost or other pre-paid carrier?

    As inkdup mentioned - if the service/network is the issue moving to Boost won't fix it.
    If it's the pricing then there is a way to do it but can't be discussed on these forums.

    Might also want to look at Ting if it's a matter of pricing. Still Sprint but a little better shake for BYOD.

    A new MVNO on Sprint network. Allows BYOD for this phone.

    Yeah, I use Ting on my E4GT and AT&T for my Nexus 4.

    Ting is great. You pay for what you want,

    boost is not sprint service...it is the old nextel service owned by sprint and i have one sprint phone and one boost and boost always runs faster since hurricane and no throttling by carrier. i am running galaxy note 2 on boost as well as s3 and s2.. on boost and all are faster than my note 2 on sprint or s3 on sprint.

    No, now you're misinforming people. Boost Mobile is a MVNO that runs off Sprint, just like Ting and Virgin Mobile. The old Nextel network is being decommissioned.
