It's good

It's a good service. It's on the Sprint CDMA nationwide network, which means few outages. The Boost BlackBerry comes with the full BIS package unlimited for $60/month. I think it's well worth it since you're not tied to a two-year contract.

mini review of my 8330 w/ Boost

Very toughly built, although it's so pretty you might want to get a case anyways to help keep it that way. Happy Tons of good features and high sync-ability.

On the down side, it can be overwhelming to use at first because it's so much like a mini PC. There's very limited application memory so you can't add on a bunch of apps without getting rid of some of the default apps. Sometimes it likes to freeze when I've got multiple applications open, and some download-able themes can really slow it down.

It also should be noted that Boost's 3G is slower than the 3G you get with a contracted provider.

Not bad at all though for Boost's start in the world of smart phones.
