Nexel i885 backlight not working

I have a boost mobile i885 i haven used he phone for about a year but now that i have the boost unlimted i wanted to use the phone. the problem is he backlight is somehow broke or somehing else is wrong. When i power the phone the exernal lcd displays normally but dim but still visible but the backlight never comes on and the inernal lcd comes up as normal but its so dim i cant hardly see anything on the screen. i held the phone up to the light and i can slightly see the internal screen but still not enough to read. i contacted the sprin repair store and they dont even repair almost every other boost/nextel phone except the i885. what do you think is wrong?Can it be fixed?

The problem with these phones is they will not work on a gsm network. They operate on a iDEN network so it might not work with other service providers. Here are a few sites you can try.

I want to unlock my sprint/nextel ic902 phone so my boost mobile simcard will work in it?


>Expert
>>Motorola Phones
>>>Boost Mobile

I activate phones for Boost Mobile.

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.

I want to use a t mobile sim card in a motorola i855 boost phone


T-mobile uses GSM technology, whereas Boost Mobile's technology is IDEN. There is no way a T-mobile sim card will work inside a Boost Motorola i855 phone or any Boost phones for that matter and, of course, vice versa.
