I hate boost!. I had them for a little over 24 hrs and returned the phone to target. Target was great! They gave me my money back for the phone with no problem. Boost would not return my $50.00 Even when the Target employee got on the phone and comfirmed the problems I was having! They expected me to activate several phone to made sure it was not the phones fault!! So, they expected me to eat the $50 and target several phone just so they didn't have to refund any money! So, out $50 and back with Verizon! They might a little more expensive but you can hear the person on the other end!
