$2 Daily Unlimited provides all the value of Monthly Unlimited and nationwide coverage at a low daily rate. The $2 subscription charge is automatically deducted from your Boost account each day after midnight, regardless of usage, unless the you cancel the subscription.

On-time payments are made on or before the monthly payment date. Your monthly payment date remains the same every month as long as you successfully make your monthly payment. However, if you make a late payment, your payment date will be reset to the day of the month before the date your service is restored (e.g., if your service is restored on February 15th, your monthly payment date will be reset to March 14th).
While it's best to make regular on-time payments each month, payments do not have to be consecutive. If you miss a payment you don't have to start over. The on-time payments made to the account will still be available as well as any savings milestone achieved.

As for looks, if a phone can be sexy, this one is. It is beautifully designed with a slim profile. While it boasts a 4.52 inch amoled display screen, the space is used wisely, and the phone isn't much wider. The size is perfect, not too large, and easy to hold even for a smaller female with average sized hands. The charging port is on the bottom of the phone, completely unobtrusive and out of the way. The volume rocker is easily accessed on the left side of the phone, and the power button is on the right side. Ideally, that would be my only change, and while a lot of people have complimented the placement of the power button, I would rather have it on top, because I find when I hit the power button, I often end up squeezing the phone on both sides, consequently also adjusting the volume. Still, that is a minor issue at best. The camera is located in the middle of the phone, which is excellent. When taking picutres quickly, it is easy to keep my hands/fingers out of the viewfinder with the phone located in the middle.
Speaking of pictures, this 8mp camera takes excellent photos. I have gotten many compliments on the quality of the pics from this phone, so much so, that I now leave my point and shoot at home. The front facing camera, while on the D710 model I have is 2MP, it still isn't wonderful, however for Skype calls and the like, it is a wonderful feature. But quality wise, you won't be setting the world on fire.
In terms of the sound quality for calls, etc, this phone is excellent. Volume for music/movies, etc is very good. Tones for alarms and alerts are loud enough as well. The volume and clarity during calls is also excellent. Voices sound crisp, without distortion or the skips and jumps and small oddities you get with voice calls on cell phones. I understand that for this phone, Samsung abandoned previously used Wolfson chip, which has led a few people to comment on a missed opportunity to improve music sound/depth. However, I am not at all unhappy with how music or movies sound on this phone. I think there is a definite improvement over my previous phones, and music sounds as good as if I was using my ipod.
As far as battery life goes, Smartphones in general suck, but I find that the SGII is better than some others. I am on my phone constantly, and while at home and in the car, it is always plugged in, I don't have many issues with battery drain if I am out and about all day. I have purchased an extended battery for the phone but have not used it yet.
I feel like I am forgetting some key points, but all in all I have to say this is an excellent phone, and the service through Boost Mobile can't be beat. In addition to their call centers, brick and mortar stores are available if you have service issues. The shrinkage program is wonderful and allows me to save money but still have unlimited everything. Boost utilizes Sprint's 4g/3g network, so make sure you have coverage with Sprint prior to purchase. Sprint has improved dramatically over the past decade, and their coverage is actually very good. I haven't experienced any dropped or lost calls.. Not sure if that speaks for the quality of the phone itself, or the service, perhaps both. Either way, I am more than satisfied with the service and the Galaxy SII. If you have any questions, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is a great phone. If rated by the quality of its large screen, quality of phone calls, its superior ability to handle basic functions such as texting, email, photos, videos, and music, the S2 is equal or superior to the Apple Iphone 5 and most other premium quality phones. For details on why the S2 is such a great phone, read some of the many "Five Star" Reviews.
Battery life? Many of the "Five Star" and "Four Star" reviews mention poor battery life. That is a direct result of the low quality Wi-Max network. If a phone is getting a strong signal and can download data rapidly, there is a light load on the battery. If a phone is constantly searching for a usable signal and struggles to slowly download data, the load on the battery doubles or triples. A phone that gets eight hours per charge on a weak network would get up to 16 hours or 24 hours per charge on a strong network.
UPDATE: 10.8.12 Boost Apps are buggy, just uninstall them or disable them.
Also another thing to keep in mind that I think all phones have problems with now a days is battery life. You betcha! This phone sucks up a lot of juice, which means you have to charge it everyday depending on how often you use it. Good phone, eventually will replace it with a higher model someday.
