I have had nothing but problems with the Sprint (including Boost, Virgin Mobile) network of carriers. So I just want to verify here that this model phone can indeed be activated on Ting with full voice, text and web function. I did not have to unlock the phone or ask Boost for permission. I simply provided the IMEI# and Sprint Sim card# in the activation dialogue. No need to buy a sim card. No bullsh*t involved.
Thank you Ting!
