Boost Mobile has announced the upcoming availability of the HTC One SV and Boost Force smartphones. The handset are both arriving with support for the 4G LTE network and will be available shortly. Although neither are running Jelly Bean, they both have a decent set of specs otherwise. Not to mention, the pricing seems fair given the specs and the fact these are pre-paid.

Lets dive in with the HTC One SV (seen above). This handset features a 4.3-inch WVGA Super LCD-2 display and is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.2GHz. The One SV will also bring Beats Audio integration, NFC, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1.6 megapixel front-facing camera that is capable of capturing 720p video and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera that can record at 1080p.

Next up is the Boost Force (seen above). This one sports a 4-inch display and dual-core 1.5GHz processor along with Wi-Fi, GPS, a front-facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera. Both handsets will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and have access to the Google Play Store.

The HTC One SV will be priced at $299.99, the Boost Force will be priced at $199.99 and both will be available beginning on March 7. Those interested in either will be able to make the purchase at Boost Mobile retail stores, by way of the Boost Mobile website or with select independent Boost Mobile retailers. These devices are both pre-paid and eligible for use with the Android Monthly Unlimited plan with shrinkage. This plan begins at $55 per month and drops $5 per month with on-time payments. The plan will eventually drop of $40 per month and includes unlimited nationwide talk, messaging and data.

    Warning To People thinking about Boost Mobile Unlimited with Shrinkage.
    Boost
    lures you in to their Web with what you think is a good deal. The
    Problem is they Switch thing and to give you less and less.

    Back
    when i started boost it was Unlimited 3g Untrottled ( April 2011)
    shrinkage from $50 a month reduced down to $35 a month after 18 months
    of on time payments with the android Samsung Prevail.

    Then Boost
    announces ( May 2012 ) We will start “Throttling Your 3g Unlimited
    Data” Changing your unlimited to 2.5g then throttled after
    * Boost is on Sprint’s network one of the slowest rated speed 3g*

    But
    Dont Worry!!! Boost Mobile Will Have “UNLIMITED” “UN-THROTTLE” 4G
    Wi-Max So Go!!! Buy our 300.00 – 400.00 dollar Wi-Max Phones!!!

    With “UNLIMITED” “UN-THROTTLE” 4G data
    ~ No Worries! ~
    Hey! Hey! Hey!!! Also 10 bucks a month Unlimited Tethering Too!
    Wow! Look at all those 4G Boost phones sold to good faith customers…

    Now
    6 months later ( Jan 2013 ) Mmmmm Boost Says Sorry we changed our minds
    No grand fathering! Now only 2.5 GB then your Throttled 3g/4g

    We know what we said but to bad! No Grand Fathering.

    I
    Bought the s2 I had the 35.00 a month it was a Samsung Prevail Android
    Plan Then they wanted to me to pay 40.00 a month to Upgrade my Phone?

    No
    sorry No Grand fathering. Upgrade me to what I asked? The same fully
    Throttled plans. The reps trying to tell me android phones take so much
    data. I’m Like YOU THROTTLE the data don’t give me that! I get no more
    data. You say one thing 4g unlimited un-trottled then take it back! Now
    you want 5.00 more a month for WI-max who’s signal cant even penetrate
    12 inches inside most buildings! Why should I pay more to get less? The thing is that Boost keeps taking back what they give you and then wants more money?

    I’m just
    warning would be New subscribers. I was the biggest Cheerleader when i join boost but
    now after 2 years seeing how the operate I have to warn you. The small
    print means WE CAN and WILL CHANGE THE TERMS. You can verify what I
    wrote in Google. I ask why Start with a company that tells you one thing
    and the switches left and right. Don’t be fooled like I was!!!

    Last Note Sprint’s/Boost/Virgin LTE has a hard time penetrating building
    like Wi-Max does I’m in Dallas TX until Sprint switches to 800mhz don’t be
    fooled. You’ll be sitting by the window with phone press up against it.
    Wi-max is 2500mhz and Boost/Sprints LTE is 1900mhz. Why does Verizon and Att LTE
    penetrate buildings so well they use 700mhz range its lower and penetrates
    farther. Sprint has 800mhz but no roll out to 2014-2015 est.

    Oh No Mobile Hot Spot for LTE phones on Boost Either

    Sprint’s Owns —> Boost/Virgin
