The Bottom Line The Motorola Theory makes a great messaging phone for Boost Mobile as long as you don't need a lot of other features. The Samsung Array excels at communication, but anyone wanting more out of a phone should look elsewhere. The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a no-contract BlackBerry, it's reliable and makes texting a breeze. Consider buying the Samsung Freeform 5 if you really need a QWERTY feature phone, but rival handsets will get you about the same experience for less. The Samsung Galaxy Prevail marries sophistication with good value to become Boost Mobile's best smartphone.
