Default [Q] Nexus SCH-I515 on Boost Mobile?

I am looking at getting a Samsung Galaxy Nexus SCH-I515 but want to run it on Boost Mobile. The reading I have done is contradictory (can activate any cdma phone and Verizon is excluded) I was just hoping someone here could give a definitive (ish) answer. Can this phone be activated through boost? BTW customer service was semi unclear to me as well, saying information that is contradicted in their own Web page... Which is why I am here. Thanks in advance.

If its anything like using Virgin Mobile, I had to "trick" the phone into thinking that it was a different device. I know that a few mom and pop shops around will do the work for you. My friend has an AT&T phone running on Net10, which is basically the same network.

I haven't decided whether to take a chance or not. I might just get an approved device (seems to be what the company wants anyways) I'll try to let you guys know. Thanks again.
