HTC One SV and ZTE Force coming to Boost Mobile on March 7

by: Bams SadewoFebruary 26, 2013


We’ve heard murmuring about the HTC One SV and the ZTE Force making their way to Boost Mobile since last December. It’s taken them long enough, but Sprint’s prepaid subsidiary has now officially added the LTE-enabled phones on its Android smartphone lineup.

At $299.99, the HTC One SV is the pricier of the two. As for the ZTE Force, also known as the Boost Force, the carrier will be selling the device for $199.99. Naturally, both handsets are offered contract-free. Here’s a quick rundown of their specs.

HTC One SV specs

  • 4.3-inch Super LCD2 WVGA display
  • Dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage with microSD slot
  • 5MP main camera, 1.6MP front-facing camera
  • Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
  • 1,800mAh battery
  • Android 4.0 ICS

ZTE Force specs

  • 4-inch WVGA display
  • Dual-core 1.5GHz processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • 5MP main camera, 1MP front-facing cam
  • 1,730mAh battery
  • Android 4.0 ICS

The two LTE smartphones will be up for grabs from Boost Mobile’s retail stores starting from March 7. If you can’t wait that long, we should point out that Sprint will also be selling the ZTE Force on March 1 for $50 with a contract, which we have to say isn’t that attractive of a pricing at all.

    Warning To People thinking about Boost Mobile Unlimited with Shrinkage.
    Boost lures you in to their Web with what you think is a good deal. The Problem is they Switch thing and to give you less and less.

    Back when i started boost it was Unlimited 3g Untrottled ( April 2011) shrinkage from $50 a month reduced down to $35 a month after 18 months of on time payments with the android Samsung Prevail.

    Then Boost announces ( May 2012 ) We will start “Throttling Your 3g Unlimited Data” Changing your unlimited to 2.5g then throttled after
    * Boost is on Sprint’s network one of the slowest rated speed 3g*

    But Dont Worry!!! Boost Mobile Will Have “UNLIMITED” “UN-THROTTLE” 4G Wi-Max So Go!!! Buy our 300.00 – 400.00 dollar Wi-Max Phones!!!

    With “UNLIMITED” “UN-THROTTLE” 4G data
    ~ No Worries! ~
    Hey! Hey! Hey!!! Also 10 bucks a month Unlimited Tethering Too!
    Wow! Look at all those 4G Boost phones sold to good faith customers…

    Now 6 months later ( Jan 2013 ) Mmmmm Boost Says Sorry we changed our minds No grand fathering! Now only 2.5 GB then your Throttled 3g/4g

    We know what we said but to bad! No Grand Fathering.

    I Bought the s2 I had the 35.00 a month it was a Samsung Prevail Android Plan Then they wanted to me to pay 40.00 a month to Upgrade my Phone?

    No sorry No Grand fathering. Upgrade me to what I asked? A the same fully Throttled plans. Reps trying to tell me android phones take so much data. I’m Like YOU THROTTLE the data don’t give me that! I get no more data. You say one thing 4g unlimited un-trottled then take it back! Now you want 5.00 more a month for WI-max who’s signal cant even penetrate 12 inches inside most buildings! Why should I pay more to get less?

    Just warning You all. I was the biggest Cheerleader when i join boost but now after 2 years seeing how the operate I have to warn you. The small print means WE CAN and WILL CHANGE THE TERMS. You can verify what I wrote in Google. I ask why Start with a company that tells you one thing and the switches left and right. Dont be fooled like I was!!!

    Last Note Sprint’s/Boost/Virgin LTE has a hard time penetrating building like Wi-Max i’m in Dallas untill Sprint switches to 800mhz dont be fooled. You’ll be sitting by the window with phone press up agaist it Wi-max 2500mhz or there LTE 1900mhz. Why does Verizon and Att LTE penetrate buildings they use 700mhz range it lower and penetrates farther. Sprint has 800mhz but no roll out to 2014-2015 est.

    Sprint’s Owns —> Boost/Virgin
