    Hi, I have a Boost Blackberry Curve 8330, got it 2 months ago. My friends and I are going on a road trip across the west coast. The problem is my dad will be calling me from time to time. I don't want him to worry when there is no coverage. Does Boost allow roaming and on what network?

    Not currently, but there are rumors that they will soon roam on Verizon.

    Argh, that sucks! but why? They are a Sprint brand, right? I know Sprint roams for free on Verizon(my Dad uses Sprint). Why not Boost?

    Yes, Boost is a Sprint brand, as well as Virgin Mobile. It's Because Sprint has agreements with Verizon to allow them to roam, while Boost can only connect on Sprint network. This is also the reason why Sprint shows a better coverage map than Boost even if they are on the same network.
