After looking through the phones, there many possibilities, wow quite a few. It does not have any recommendations on headsets. The headset is only as good as the the quality you are purchasing. If your phone drops calls it won't be from the bluetooth device. Below is a link to the Explorer Series 300 User's Guide, which may help you.

Trying to convert,if possible, nextel blackberry 8530i to boostmobile


watch this video


Boost Mobile has the cheapest (and slowest) data service around, and the Nextel Branded BlackBerry is the only smart phone that works with Boost's iDEN service.

The old 7520 and 7100i BlackBerry's can be purchased for around 50 dollars, and are very usable smart phones.

The newer BlackBerry 8350i is one of the best blackberry smartphones available. However on Nextel it costs more then 120 dollars a month for unlimited everything and on Boost mobile you can get unlimited service for $50 a month.


The difference however is that Boost mobile does not offer a Blackberry Data Plan and Nextel does. So if you want to browse the web, send emails, and be able to download apps, you have to convert your Nextel Blackberry to Boost Mobile.

The email works a little differently in that you can set up your yahoo or aol mail to forward to your Blackberry by using the email address

yournumber@myboostmobile.com as the forward to email address.


What are the differences of the Nextel Blackberry models?




Besides the obvious difference which is the design of the phone and the applications and memory available, the 8350i runs BlackBerry OS version 4.6 whereas the 7520 and 7100i run version 4.1. The older OS does not support as many apps and features.


To sum it up Boost Mobile Phones aren't good and Blackberry's are. It's really that simple.


Does Boost support the BlackBerry?


Not officially. Boost sells their Starter kit to "give new life to a previously used Boost or Nextel phone", but they make no specific mention of its compatibility with the BlackBerry. Using a BlackBerry on Boost is consistent with their terms and conditions, but you won't get any help from Boost for configuring your BlackBerry.


Which features work?


Voice service and basic data service work.

3rd-party apps work, including apps for web browsing, email, GPS, and instant messaging.


Over-the-air installation of apps using the BlackBerry Browser will work if youfollow the how-to.

Text messaging will work if you follow the how-to.

Apps can also be installed using the Desktop Manager software on your PC.

Which Boost plans included data service?

All Boost plans include basic data service

My new blackberry pearl no reconnize my plantronic 330


Test the headset on another phone, if it doesn't work on the other phone then your headset is defective. Connecting the headset to the blackberry is fairly simple. Just verify that the Blackberry's bluetooth connection is active and make sure the headset's connection is active as well. Select the plantronics headset within the Blackberry's bluetooth menu, it should be listed in the menu if the headset is working.

Plantronics 330 no longer pairs with Blackberry 8310.


I believe that the bluetooth symbol that you see indicates that bluetooth is enabled on your Blackberry, not that you are connected to a device (at least that's how mine works).

Here are some suggestions:

First, if you are on BES, check with IT to make sure no changes were made (they can block bluetooth).

Next, make sure you are using the most current software. It should be: v4.5.0.108. If you are using an older version, definitely update your software because the 8310 is known to have bluetooth issues.

Do you see your headset listed on "paired devices"? If so, I suggest that you delete it before upgrading the software.

Once your headset is no longer listed (or if it wasn't in the first place), re-connect it to your Blackberry as follows (apologies if you already know this part):

1. Re-set your headset:
Turn the headset off.

Press and hold down the control button.
After 6-10 seconds, the light will flash blue, then it will flash red, then blue.
Release the button when you see the red/blue.

2. On your Blackberry:

Open "Options"
Open "Bluetooth"
Open menu within Bluetooth
If not already on, click "Enable Bluetooth"
Open Bluetooth menu again.
Open "Options".
Turn "Discoverable" to "Yes"

Open the Bluetooth menu a 3rd time.
Click on "Add Device".
Your Blackberry will search for your headset.
If you are prompted for a Passkey, use 0000 (that's 4 zeros).
After a short time, your headset will appear on your Blackberry.
It should appear as Plantronics 3xxx.

Make sure you go back into Bluetooth Options and change "Discoverable" back to "No".


Once you have established a new connection with upgraded software, you should have no trouble with "Transfer Address Book".

Hope this solves your problem.

Connectivity problems with my Nextel Blackberry 7100i


I am not sure this is what solved my problem but it worked after I did this. When you enter the 0000 code, make sure to hit the enter key and not push the trackwheel. That made the connection work.
