Boost Mobile Samsung Prevail to be released on April 29

Phones from the small carriers tend to be ignored by the general public, but it is undeniable that these such companies offer great deals, and even better, without a contract. Though it is exciting to get the new devices at highly discounted prices, signing your wallet to a carrier for two years always leaves a bitter taste. Those that want a decent device, without having to sign a two-year contract, may have been considering Boost Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Prevail, which will go for $179.99 at full retail price (Yes, that is an off-contract price), and the unlimited plan only costs $50 per month.

This device was officially announced in the beginning of April, but we have not received a solid release date since then. If you have been wanting to know when you can get your Samsung Prevail, Boost Mobile’s homepage now advertises this device to be arriving on April 29, which is this Friday.

Galaxy Prevail features include:

  • Android 2.2 with Access to Android Marketâ„¢
  • 3.2-inch touchscreen
  • 2MP camera with video
  • GPS enabled
  • Bluetooth® capable
  • Easy access to Gmailâ„¢ and Google Talkâ„¢
  • Wireless Web enabled
  • Switch between portrait and landscape
  • Speakerphone with voice-activated dialing
  • Telenav navigation, free and unlimited
  • Supports microSDâ„¢ cards up to 32GB (2GB card included)
  • Voice mail, caller ID, call waiting and three-way calling
  • The Prevail will definitely not be a top-of-the-line device, but for $179.99 with a $50 unlimited plan, it is surely one of the best options for the budget conscious and those hiding away from contracts. Who is signing up for this?

      My GF and I currently pay T-Mo $180 a month for two lines unlimited everything. We are switching to Boost for $100 a month (also unlimited everything), and it will go down to $70 a month as we pay our bills on time.

      Goodbye T-mo! Goodbye AT & T!!!

        I would like to do the same but I’m worried about…

        -carrier coverage
        -data speeds
        -OS upgrade support.

        Those are pretty much the only things keeping me from leaving The Big Four’s comfy little umbrella.

          To answer your questions:
          -Boost mobile uses Sprint’s CDMA cell towers, so technically its part of the “Big 4.”
          -You will be restricted to sprints 3g.
          -OS updates is unknown, but you can always root it and add 3rd party firmwares such as cyanogen, once supported.

          Boost’s coverage is GREAT! its the SAME coverage as Sprint, as they are owned by sprint use Sprint towers. Had it been a sim card phone with chirp, it would be nextel coverage which is ALSO awesome coverage and owned by sprint. it’s win win!

      I bought a the cheapest used “clamshell” phone on Boost to test my coverage area (previously AT&T) before buying the Prevail when it comes out. I’m pretty sure that Boost uses only Sprint “owned” towers and doesn’t have any roaming agreements for towers like Verizon. But, in Orlando, Boost so far has great coverage, especially my apartment, so I’m gonna order the Prevail. There are so few instances that I would need the “roaming” towers ever anyway. I’m not a power user and just want something that looks like a cool Android phone for occasional facebook, Gmail and GPS help when I’m driving (I don’t need any turn-by-turn navigation, just access to a Google Map and my GPS location).

        Hey where did u buy it? I cant find, no where.

      I’m hoping the Prevail gets lots of attention in the flashing community, like CyanogenMod 7. If so, I’ll pay my penalty with T-Mobile and move to Boost. Otherwise, Virgin Mobiles Optimus V is receiving the flashing love. That will do just fine. And their $40 per month plan will save me $50 per month.
