Sprint Spark comes to prepaid brands with the $179 LG Volt


Both Virgin Mobile and Boost Wireless now carry the $179 LG Volt, an Android(s goog) 4.4 smartphone that uses Sprint’s Spark service. The tri-band LTE network — currently available in only 24 cities — promises faster mobile broadband speeds by using different wireless frequencies depending on the activity. Downloading video, for example, will use the fastest currently available network while smaller email data chunks would flow over a slower frequency. For the price, the LG Volt doesn’t look too bad: It has a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon(s qcom) 400 processor, 4.7-inch display with 960 x 540 resolution and large 3,000 mAh battery that should easily last a full day.



nice phone. the problem is that in many markets sprints network is terrible. boost/virgin are given lower priority making it even worse.


Please educate me on how a Sprint Cell Site will discriminate between my No-Contract Boost Mobile $40/Month Unlimited Plan iPhone 5s and my friend’s 2-Year Contract Sprint Plan on an iPhone 5s with the exact same internal specs when we are standing side-by-side???

Answer: It doesn’t and to say otherwise is a fabricated myth to keep people away from the Better Value No-Contract Plans offered by Boost Mobile & Virgin Mobile, both 100% owned by Sprint (i.e. Softbank now)!!!
