The SIM card in a i730 slides out of the side of the phone. Remove the battery and simply slide the card to the right toward the push to talk button. Once removed you will see a diagram that shows how to insert the new one. You need to insert it with the angled edge down to the left. If it is a new SIM card you will need a SIM copier to copy the contacts from one card to another (if you want to) You will also need to activate the new card before using it. Go to a Nextel store for this or try customer service.
There is no actual "Special Code". The phone is programmed for one, but it won't work. If you can get to a Sprint Nextel repair center, ask them to use RSS to unlock the codeplug. Also note that many Nextel SIM cards will do this to a Boost phone.
What you need to do, is when you insert the SIM card into the different i730, basically, make sure that the GOLD plate is facing down, THIS IS VERY SENSITIVE, care with caution. Pop it in, and it should work, FYI call customer care, basically to have your MSN *serial Number* updated, due to having different MSN's could cause issues. Let me know how it goes, Thanks Justin Please Rate Me :)
the i830's were junk. It's probably dented inside. If you want to try and get it fixed, you will need to have this repaired at a local service center.
This is covered completely by Sprint Nextel's ESRP (Equipment Service
& Repair Program) and TEP (Total Equipment Protection), and can be
done at any Sprint Nextel Service & Repair Location. If you do not
subscribe to ESRP or TEP, the charge for the repair will be no more
