Using nextel sim in boost headset

I am a nextel customer and have been forseveral years. The fact of the matter is their ability to make a sleek, stylish phone is lacking..... So I have had my eye on the i425e by boost. So, I f I were to buy the boost phone would my nextel sim work in it? If not is there a way to modify the boost headset to make it work? Oh by the way my nextel is a i265.

Re: Using nextel sim in boost headset

If the network provider is the same it may be possible but that is a question I would ask the sales people in store. In some cases the phone may be sim locked as well as network locked and this would mean that it will only work with the sim provided in the package. Providers will normally unlock the phone for a fee or after you have spent x amount on there network. again check this with the sales person b4 you make your purchase.

I have an active nextel i710 and want to move sim card to a i855 boost mobile,but i need a special unlock code.Can u help me.

Remove the battery from the phone. Let it remain out of the phone for 10 minutes with the phone off. Replace the battery and turn the phone on.

This is a problem with the phone trying to read the SIM card after being in another phone. Be patient. It may take several minutes for the phone to read the SIM.

Unlock ic502

You cannot use a Boost sim card in the phone, it HAS to be a powersource sim card. You may be able to purchase one of these at a Sprint Nextel Repair location, or via Customer Care Sales. Let me know how it goes, I do apologize for the incovience.
Please rate me if solution works

Want to use Boost Phone i425t (Pay as you go) with my Nextel SIM Card

When you are using a Nextel sim card in a Boost phone, The Boost phone recognizes that it is not the alotted sim and will automatically lock up. This doesn't happen in all cases but it does happen often. There is no way to fix this issue besides replacing the phone, which you can do through warranty if you can not return it to the store.
