SOURCE: resetting motorola i830

There is no way to do such a thing. The i830 works off the iDEN network and is not compatible in any way with the GSM network used by Cingular. Sorry. Truth is, the i830 is junk, you're better off without it.

SOURCE: unlock codes

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.

SOURCE: Need Boost SIM card to work in Nextel Motorola Buzz+ ic602 phone.

I called Boost support about the same issue and I was told that that particular phone and any other Ic series phone by motorola will not work with Boost Mobile. There was also a few other phones that will not work. Try calling thier support line and requesting the list of phones that won't work. Good luck.

Actually, Nextel runs on iDEN, and does have a SIM card. However, this SIM card is not compatible with AT&T's network, which is GSM.

I686 Brute: How do I unlock this phone


Hi,

If you want to unlock the device to be used with another carrier, you will have to contact the original service provider. Or do you want to unlock the phone itself?

Will my att sim card work in a motorola i560( nextel phone ) ?


no. A Nextel phone is CDMA (code division multiple access) and an AT&T phone is GSM.

The Nextel has no sim card.

Sorry, it won't work.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa

This document is also available in PDF format (this PDF has higher qualify images and a password and is not free. It requires purchase, with your purchase, you will receive the HEX file for Raptor Pro that's mentioned in this web page) for easier viewing and printing.

RSS Carrier + iDENPro
fc55141.jpg
Phone Power: On
i-DEN phones are made by Motorola. They use SIM cards and look like GSM phones, but they are not GSM. The most popular iDEN network in the US is Nextel (now with Sprint) and Boost (owned by Nextel)
For most i-Den phones, use the RSS Carrier to put the phone RSS-SIM mode. Then use iDEN Pro.
It is recommended that you use the USB cable for Motorola iDEN phone when using RSS carrier and iDEN pro. Pay attention, the iDEN cable is very similar to the Motorola V600 cable, but a bit wider. So be careful not to confuse them.

RSS Carrier is useful for reading either the six-digit or four-digit phone or user security code. However, the actual unlocking of the Service Provider lock is done with iDEN Pro software.
Once you connected the phone, some times it will prompt you to install the driver, just follow the instruction and install it automatically. If it does not work, try to manually install the driver from the directory, which the Motorola RSS is located.
Assuming the driver has been successfully installed already. You should open the RSS Carrier software, click on File and Read Phone. This should put the phone into RSS-SIM mode.
Now you can exit RSS. Open the iDEN Pro software, and wait for it to detect the phone. Then click on Script | Open Script. Open a file under the iDEN Pro directory called “command3.txt” and then go to Script | Run Script. The phone should restart after the script is finished. Now test with a different SIM card.
Raptor Pro For a long time, Raptor Pro was not updated and stopped supporting any phones newer than the i405. However, recently the Raptor Pro’s hex file has been updated to support almost all i-DEN phones on the market. To unlock, i-DEN i880, i885, Raptor Pro (keep in mind the Hex File can be found under C:\Program Files\Raptor Pro\Hex File) has to be updated to support this type of phone. Make sure a SIM card is insider the phone and the phone should be on and ask for a special subsidy code. Then you should connect the phone using serial cable on COM1 and run Raptor Pro. It will take few minutes and give you the unlock code. It should be the first one. After getting your unlock code, try to put it into your phone with a different SIM.

Tip Some times when a person insert a different SIM and has entered the incorrect unlock code more than few times, the phone will show “Enter Special Code, Please Wait” or “Contact Service Provider”. In this case, you need to wait up to one hour for the phone to allow you to enter the unlock code again.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa if it helped you.

Motorola i205


If this phone was originally a Boost phone, it is more then likley on the IDEN network, which is exclusive to Nextel/Boost. Once the new SIM from the company other then Nextel/Boost is put in the phone, it will ask for a special code- thus rendering the phone useless on the new network. IDEN is only used by Nextel/Boost and another company out of the South called southernlinc.
