LG Optimus F7 (LG870) coming to Boost Mobile

Yesterday the LG VS870 passed the FCC headed to Verizon with support for their LTE 700MHz C Block. On November 9, 2012 the LG MS870 passed thru the FCC with support for LTE bands 2, 4, & 25, and is heading to Metro PCS & Cricket, and still includes support for Sprint's LTE band.

If history is any indication, the LG model 840 phone was released on Metro PCS as the Connect, Verizon as the Lucid, and Sprint as the Viper, so the 870 model could be coming to Sprint soon.

Thanks. And it doesn't have SVDO either.

 

On the HAC key feature letter, it lists that it will have Bluetooth 4.0 & 1x Advanced. It also lists CDMA835? What is that? Is that a new way to designate CDMA Band class 10?

You can keep knocking on that door, Josh, but SVDO doesn't live here anymore.

No, that is band class √100.

Hey, I don't miss SVDO, and with the iPhone I won't have SVLTE, but I think I'll survive.

 

As for the square root of 100, hahaha. Nice try to trick me, lol

LG870 passed the FCC today with ERP/EIRP ratings listed below:

BC10, 1xRTT 25.06 dBm

BC0, 1xRTT 26.60 dBm

BC1, 1xRTT 26.53 dBm

BC10, EVDO A 25.20 dBm

BC0, EVDO A 26.26 dBm

BC1, EVDO A 26.16 dBm

LTE 3MHz QPSK 25.11 dBm

LTE 3MHz 16QAM 24.71 dBm

LTE 5MHz QPSK 24.93 dBm

LTE 5MHz 16QAM 24.35 dBm

LTE 10MHz QPSK 24.38 dBm

LTE 10MHz 16QAM 24.70 dBm

 

Rumor had this as possibly the Boost FX1, based off the LG Optimus L7.

 

Prelim specs are Wifi ABGN 2.4GHz & 5GHz because of the FCC filing, NFC.

 

SVLTE only. And LTE hotspot over 2.4GHz Wi-Fi only.

Update: Sprint & Boost officially announced June 27th availability of the LG Optimus F7 (LG870) for $299.99 plus tax. Hopefully an update to the Wall article will happen today.

 

Here is a direct link to Sprint's article, and to LG's official LG870 page.

Hey, your prediction took only six months to come true. I have a prediction, too. In six months, the weather will be cold. And you can take that to the bank.

 

:P

Just purchased this phone and compared it side by side to a display LG Optimus G for sprint .... very identical except the F7 has a dual core, physical home button and camera placement (8mp) but other then that just based on appearances they look alike with the same screen and form factor.

 

 

This phone is a really decent deal and since I already had a 32gb sd card picking this over the galaxy s3 saved me 100.00 (or 2 months service on Boost) 

 

only down side this phone is lacking developers for custom roms and other stuff compaired to the s3

    • Yup. Very true. We were originally on an Everything Data 1500 Plan, which got Unlimited Minutes thanks to Marcelo's "Loyalty Benefits" offer. We then switched to Unlimited Freedom (with the Free HD add-on that Sprint originally wanted $20/month per line for.... remember that?) because the pricing was better with "iPhone for Life", vs. the "Loyalty Credit" for staying on a Legacy Plan. After that, I ran the numbers and switched us over to Sprint MAX, especially for the international travel benefits. There's absolutely no reason for us to switch to Go5G Plus or Go5G Next if we're going to do BYOD by purchasing from Apple/Samsung/Google directly as we've been doing. These new plans aren't priced for current customers to switch to. They're price for new customers, where they throw in a free line, etc. It's gone from "Uncarrier" to "Carrier". What a shame.
    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:
