OP Note: I have the Kyocera Hydro Edge (a slightly newer version of this phone), and while I've never dropped it in water, I've dropped it on enough hard surfaces to say these phones are DEFINITELY durable. Mine also withstood being stood on by our 50-lb. dog.

Boost does not sell "device with plan", they are prepaid only. As someone who did Virgin Mobile deal a while ago where FW took away most of the CashBack after posting it, I wouldn't count on it. Point is , do you plan to activate this phone with Boost? otherwise you are SOL.

I use mine with WiFi and loaded CoPilot GPS Navigation on it so you don't need a data plan. It works great. I don't have the phone activated with anyone. I just bought it at Target for $10 to play with.
Not to TC but the Target deal - new for $10, does repeat every few weeks. So if you can wait, that is a much better deal IMO. In fact the Target CSM had been very helpful and marked down the Hydro Edge for me to $10 as they did not have the Hydro in stock then.

Everything works fine without activation... I used it on a trip recently with MapFactor GPS Navigator free edition and that alone was worth 5X what I paid for the phone Now I use it with IP Cam Soft to monitor my security cameras
GPS... Bluetooth... wifi.... all work fine w/o activation. Best $10 I ever spent.
