Samsung Officially Announces the Galaxy Prevail for Boost Mobile


A couple of leaks preceded this announcement, but Samsung’s gone ahead and made it official: the Samsung Galaxy Prevail will be Boost Mobile’s first CDMA Android handset. It’s not the most exciting device we’ve ever seen with its 2 megapixel camera, 3.2 inch display and Android 2.2, but you can’t really argue with $179.99 for a pay-as-you-go device. (And their service plans are nothing to underestimate, either, with unlimited everything plans going for $50 per month.)  Read on for full press details.

Why Settle When You Can “Prevail” with the new

Android-powered Phone from Boost Mobile and Samsung

The new Samsung Galaxy Prevail combines all the features of Android with Boost Mobile’s $50 Monthly Unlimited plan, which includes nationwide talk, text, Web,

e-mail and payments that shrink

IRVINE, Calif.Boost Mobile, the top carrier in the recent 2011 J.D. Power and Associates Wireless Non-Contract Customer Satisfaction Index StudySM, unlocks the power of Android with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Prevail™, available exclusively with Boost Mobile on the Nationwide Sprint Network. As the first CDMA Android device on Boost Mobile, the Galaxy Prevail is designed to provide an uncompromised Android experience while maintaining the great value of Boost’s $50 Monthly Unlimited plan with no hidden fees and no contracts required.


The Galaxy Prevail will be available late April for $179.99 (excluding taxes) at Boost Mobile’s exclusive retail stores, select independent wireless dealer locations across the country and at www.boostmobile.com with free shipping. By the middle of May, the Galaxy Prevail will be available in select retail outlets nationwide.


”We are excited to partner with Samsung to launch this innovative touchscreen phone for wireless users who are interested in upgrading to an Android experience without spending more on their monthly plan,” said Andre Smith, vice president-Boost Mobile. “The Samsung Galaxy Prevail delivers the power of the Android platform to our customers’ fingertips while bringing tremendous value to our customers’ wallets.”


The Galaxy Prevail will be available on Boost Mobile’s $50 Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage plan, where the longer you stay, the less you pay simply by making on-time payments. For every six on-time payments, a Boost Mobile customer’s monthly cost will shrink by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $35 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, e-mail, IM and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone. The first wave of Boost customers will be hitting their first six-month milestone this month and will be paying $45 per month for Monthly Unlimited service.

·         Android 2.2 with Access to Android Market™

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I know this is not the place to ask, but I must know:
    Google is releasing a quarterly magazine, “think quarterly” I think its called.
    Its not very much android oriented, but will you report about it when it gets released?
    This is the only “google” fan/news site that I visit, so would be helpfull if I just check this site and got the update on the magazine.

    Thanks either ay

  2. This is great for the 5 people who have Boost Mobile

  3. Not a bad price but the 4G bar has already been set in the no contract provider world already by MetroPCS.
    Boost needs to work on 4G or they will soon become a non factor.


    1. “or they will soon become a non factor.”

      they are a non factor, nub.

    2. metropcs has a bit of a catch. If you aren’t in an LTE area, you’ll end up with 2G, not 3G fallback.

  4. Definitely good news! As a communicator for project Advanced Technology and Design Korea, I am continuing to share the great content with our audience. Thanks for the visits to the blog (www.advancedtechnolologykorea.com), facebook (www.facebook.com/advancedtechKOR) and twitter (www.twitter.com/advancedtechkr). Hopefully you will continue to find useful info. Have a good one and happy Thursday from Korea! If you have any questions or want to get involved in the project, don’t hesitate to ask!

  5. Ha, five people? I own two Boost stores. There’s slighty more than that.

  6. 4g is a lie
