First, try going to and downloading their software upgrade. (this is free by the way). You'll just need to connect your phone to the computer with the proper data cable and run the software. This program will do the rest.

Installing a 2GB PNY Micro SD Card


Only the Sprint version of this phone supports memory cards over 1 Gigabyte. Sorry. But if you have a Sprint phone comment back to me using the comment box below. Thanks.

If you don't have a Sprint phone you need to acquire a 1GB card and use that. Hold on to your 2GB card as it will be usable when you upgrade at the end of your contract period.

Boost mobile motorla c290


You should get the phone to a service center because most probably the phone's firmware was corrupted and needs to be reflashed.
However you may check if the phone can be saved by issuing the following command. Close the phone first. Now press (and keep pressed) both " * " and " # " keys. With these 2 keys pressed, press the power button (red phone). Your phone should enter bootloader mode. Try this combination some 3-4 times if you don't succed at first and remember your phone must be closed when you begin. If the phone enters in bootloader mode it would be relative easy for a service center to fix it by reflashing it's rom and this woun't cost too much, otherwise it may turn out to be expensive and difficult to save the phone.
