    They both use Sprint's towers.
    So just pick which ever one is cheaper.

    They are both the same, from my understanding. By me formerly having a Boost 8330, I can tell you that it wasn't crippled at all, so the 8530 shouldn't be either. Everything worked as it should.

    It really all boils down to which carriers plan would save you the most money, and give you greater bang for your buck... Boost's plan is ten bucks cheaper? Sounds like a winner. (plus it truly is unlimited everything)

    On the tethering... Boost states in their TOS that they do not allow it and if caught, they have the right to boot you! Lol, however, I can tell you from personal expierence that tethering works. (Just don't get caught by over doing it and downloading massive files)
