Get a new 128k sim card, one that has not been used in any other phone. If you have problems activating, go to a 3rd party NEXTEL/Sprint store. Since Sprint does not sell these phones any more, they do not seem to know what they are doing with them. They also say they do not carry the sims for the hybrid phones. The sim is the same as any other 128k black sim card.

I activate phones for Boost Mobile.

I'm sorry to tell you, but an ic902 can never work on the AT&T system. Here's why. The ic902 is a hybrid phone. That is, it uses two different cellular systems to operate. Specifically, voice calls on the ic902 are placed over the Sprint CDMA network and Push-to-Talk (PTT) calls are transmitted over Nextel's iDEN network. And, AT&T uses the GSM system for its phones.

I'm sorry to tell you, but an ic902 can never be unlocked to work properly on any other system - to include the Boost system. Here's why. The ic902 is a hybrid phone. That is, it uses two different cellular systems to operate. Specifically, voice calls on the ic902 are placed over the Sprint CDMA network and Push-to-Talk (PTT) calls are transmitted over Nextel's iDEN network.

Boost Mobile calling (both, voice and PTT) uses the iDEN network from Nextel. Thus, the ic902's radio transmitter (which is CDMA) cannot make calls on the Boost ( iDEN ) system.

Moreover, if you plan to use Boost Mobile, I STRONGLY suggest that you NOT purchase a Nextel phone and have it unlocked to use for Boost.

Although Nextel and Boost phones seem the same - they are not. If you look at the model number of Nextel phones most of them end in a zero. (ie., i850, i870 etc.) where Boost Mobile Phones end with the number five. (ie., i855, i875, etc.) This is because the transmitters in the phones are set to different frequencies for different purposes (like for texting.)

If you go to eBay for example, those who sell unlocked Nextel phones to use for Boost (if they're honest) will inform potential buyers in their eBay listings that their unlocked Nextel phone will not (text, for example) on the Boost network. These unlocked Nextel phones will have limitations when used on Boost.

To prevent problems down the road, ALWAYS purchase a Boost phone to use on the Boost network.

The ic902 takes a special SIM card that is unique to PowerSource phones. Those phones use Sprint Voice and Data, and only Nextel walkie-talkie and will not work on Boost Mobile Phones.

How to active a motorola ic902 with a nextel account


Go to a 3rd party NEXTEL/Sprint store not a Sprint owned store. They do not know what they are doing with these Hybrids. You need a new 128k sim card.

You may need to purchase a new sim card for it to be compatible with your nextel phones BUT it won't hurt to call customer service and try to activate that sim card under the ic902's serial number. Because your ic902 is also a sprint phone it works off of a different network and will need programming. Customer service will be able to activate your phone and give you the info needed to get your phone up and running.
