Sprint sending Samsung Epic 4G Touch over to Boost Mobile


Sprint has been known to give some of its hand-me downs to their PAYG carriers after they’ve properly replaced them. It seems that the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, their one and only Galaxy S2 variant, is no exception. A user agent profile has surfaced over at Sprint’s servers showing a device called the SPH-D710BST.

The D710 was the Epic 4G Touch’s original model number, and the BST on the end undoubtedly stands for “Boost,” the name of one of Sprint’s pre-paid carriers. Aside from that fact it doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know about the device: it’ll be the same exact thing. [Sprint (open in Internet Explorer)Thanks Andy!]

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. Damn, looks like Im switching from Virgin if this is true

    1. He said switching FROM Virgin ;)

    2. If hes already on Virgin, wouldn’t his Boost coverage be the same? O_o

  2. Any info on price??

  3. Holy cow! This will be the hottest phone offered by any of the prepaid carriers. Dual-core Exynos and Ice Cream Sandwich. We’ve finally arrived, people :D

    1. It is pretty impressive. If you get decent WiMax its…. Epic? O_o

  4. Still rockin that E4GT since I just got on contract last Oct. Hmm… I’m not changing phones unless I can get me a Galaxy Note equivalent or Qwerty phone. Was rocking that G2 for a year and would have kept going had wii not switched plans. LoL!! I keep talking about the G2. =.P

  5. The best phone I ever owned. Even better then my gnex. If it had vanilla android and lte I would have used it for a long time. Damn it was fast!

    1. I feel the same way! I couldn’t have said it better myself! although I do do love my GNexus.

      1. Oh I didn’t say I didn’t love it. You can’t beat same day announcing of then flashing of JB. I’ll never buy a non nexus device again.

        1. Again I have to agree, Nexus FTW!!

  6. Dual Core Exynos murders S4

    1. WOW get your fanboy out of here

      1. look at his screen name… lol

    2. Wrong! the s4 is built on newer architecture and supports Lte. And bench marks are higher! hate to say it cause I did love my Exynos!!

      1. The GPU built into the Exynos runs circles around the qualcomm one, so if you ever play games he is right the Exynos rocks the S4

        1. GPU is better but not CPU and NO LTE support! S4 FTW

  7. I’m getting this. I have the evo design. I’m guessing it’ll be 300 as well. I’m so getting it Hell yeah.

  8. If only a sgs2 would make it to metro pcs

    1. I don’t think that would ever happen….

  9. Sprints got themselves a nice little thing going on. When they have outdated things like Wimax and phones just send them over to they’re smaller carriers.

  10. Watch it be like $550+ -_-.

  11. Sprint you should release the nexus s 4g on virgin with the jb update

    1. nah! my phone too good to be prepaid! plus it wouldn’t be a good look to have the android flag ship on a prepaid carrier, it would make android look cheap!

      1. > it wouldn’t be a good look to have the android flag ship on a prepaid carrier, it would make android look cheap!
        > make android look cheap

        Remember, this isn’t Apple here.

  12. It’s only worth getting if the price is $300. Hopefully they will bring it out this upcoming September when they release the iphone 4 on Boost
