Bottom line: as of October 2013, anyone buying a Boost phone should ONLY be looking at the new 4G LTE models.
If you read "one star" and "two star" reviews, you will see people complaining about their Rush "freezing up". That problem is caused by filling the internal memory to the brim with apps and not moving apps to the SD card. "Phone Freeze" can also be caused by just one "bad" app, and the Google Play Store has THOUSANDS of bad apps. When you install a new app, install just one each day. Use that app for a day and verify it works well and causes no problems for your Rush. App freezes your phone? Just uninstall it. If you download five apps a day and your phone freezes up, you don't know WHICH app is misbehaving.
The Rush has a smaller screen than most 2013 "Super Phones"...it is the size of the screen on the Apple Iphone 4S. For reading email or news on the web, the Rush's screen works very well. Want to watch Netflix movies? You probably will think the Rush's screen is a bit small.
Samsung makes tough phones. Odds are, your Rush will survive a fall onto a hardwood floor. But, why take chances? Buy a dual layer "hybrid" case with a rubber inner layer and a hard outer shell. Such cases are light, but tough enough to protect your Rush against a fall, even onto concrete. Search Amazon for cases using terms such as "Hybrid" or "dual" or "fishbone" to find the dual layer cases.
WARNING: Boost Mobile uses the Sprint Network, and Boost phones do NOT "roam" to other networks when you travel beyond the reach of the Sprint "home" network. Boost Mobile has a strong network in America's 40 largest cities, and along the major interstate highways that connect those 40 cities. But, there are ENTIRE STATES not served by Boost Mobile...also NOT served are most small towns and rural areas. The Boost Mobile coverage map enables you to "zoom in" on the block where you live and where you work to verify the availability of a 3g signal in your neighborhood before you buy a Boost phone.
Very happy and satisfied. Do not miss my blackberry or iphone.
BoostMobile is very easy to activate. Yet to fully experience quality of service, but "no contract" is a great thing.
