I bought an i465 BoostMobile phone three weeks ago. About one week ago, I attempted to charge it and got a blank screen in return. For a while, the phone would not even turn on unless plugged in, though...


I suggest that you go to the nearest Boostmobile store to have your phone checked. Here's a link to locate the nearest Boost store within your area:
http://boostmobile.nearestoutlet.com/cgi-bin/search.pl
FYI, Boostmobile is an affiliate of Sprint so maybe a Sprint store might be an alternative if no Boostmobile store is nearby.
Here are some troubleshooting steps you might want to try:
Take the battery out for about 30 seconds and try to turn on the phone.When the phone goes to the white screen, just press the OK button (the circle button in the middle of the directional buttons) for more than like 3 seconds and you'll see the Motorola logo (do nothing) and then the phone will power ON by itself...it's very much like turning the phone off but without having to press the power on/off button.
If this doesn't work, then you really need to go to their store for help.

My phone is saying digital roam mode when i make an outgoing call, how do i take it off so i can make outgoing call with no problem.


This is pretty much what you need to do. Just turn off all the roaming features. However when you roam it typically means you dont have service through Sprint so dont be surprised if when you turn off roaming capabilities your phone doesn't get ANY signal. Here's the link to your phones manual page 112 is about roaming.


Setting Roam Mode
Your phone allows you to control your roaming
capabilities. By using the Roaming menu option, you
can determine which signals your phone accepts.
Choose from two different settings on your phone to
control your roaming experience.
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming > Set Mode.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Sprint Only to access only the Sprint network and
prevent roaming on other networks.
n Automatic to seek service on the Nationwide Sprint
Network. When Sprint service is unavailable, the
phone searches for an alternate service.
Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint Network: the
onscreen roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard
makes it easy to manage your roaming by requiring an
extra step before you can place or answer a roaming
call. (This additional step is not required when you make
or receive calls while on the Nationwide Sprint Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Call Guard.
2. Select On or Off.
To place roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. From standby mode, dial 1 + area code + the
seven-digit number and press .
2. Read the message and press .
Note Call Guard is turned on by default on yourphone.

To answer incoming roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. Press .
2. Read the message and press .
Data Roam Guard
Depending on service availability and roaming
agreements, yourphone may be able to access data
services while roaming on certain other networks. You
can set your phone to alert you when you are roaming
off the Nationwide Sprint Network and try to use data
services such as messaging.
To set your Data Roam Guard notification:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Data Roaming.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Always Ask (default mode) sets your phone's Data
Roam Guard feature on. You will see a prompt that
will require you to respond anytime you access
data services while roaming.
n NeverAsk turns your phone's Data Roam Guard
feature off. Your phone will not notify you of your
roaming status when you access data services.
Touse data services when Data Roam Guard is active:
© When a notification appears informing you that data
roam charges may apply, press ROAM (left softkey)
to connect.
Note If the Call Guard feature is set to On, you need to
take extra steps to make and receive roaming calls.

How do i turn my 3g on my galaxy s


3g service is activated when you enter a 3g network. 3g networks are in select cities, refer to your wireless carrier's website to see where the closest 3g area is to you.

Here are a few quick links to coverage maps by carrier:

Verizon: http://www.verizonwireless.com/wireless-coverage-area-map.shtml

AT&T: http://www.wireless.att.com/coverageviewer/#?type=voice

T-Mobile: http://coverage.t-mobile.com/default.aspx?MapType=Data

Block text messages


Log into your Sprint account on the web,

Click the "SMS Messaging" link in My Online Tools, then click the "Settings & Preferences" link in Text Messaging Options.

If that doesn't help, just call Sprint (or whoever your carrier is) customer service and they can turn off incoming SMS messages.

I am with Sprint and I was given a Blackberry Curve from AT&T. Can I unlock it from AT&T so I can use it on Sprint?


no.....AT&T uses GSM and Sprint uses CDMA service.......although sprint doesnt require a sim card, that device does in order to work on a network. Now i don't like to say that anything is impossible, but you would need professional equipment and/or software to program a sim card to trick the device into thinking it is CDMA. Even if you where able to set this device up as CDMA you would have to contact Sprint to have them enter the HEX/DEC into there system to be recognized......so all this was to say NO ATT and Sprint cannot interchange devices due to their fundamental hardware differences. That device can be unlocked though to be used on other GSM services however like T-Mobile / Cellular One and other local providers in your area. GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!!
P.S. i would recommend finding someone who has switched from sprint to ATT that had a nice Sprint phone to trade with......be cautious and call sprint customer service to verify that the ESN is clear. If there is a hold on the ESN it is rendered useless on the Sprint Network until the acct attached to that device is paid in full......

My instinct is stuck on the dial pad and speed dial area


I had the same problem, call sprint and tell them the problem and they should exchange it for you, the problem is that the screen colapsed just enough to be touching that area of the phone. Don't go to a sprint store all they will tell you is its not under warranty and insurance should cover it. 100.00. hell no.
Its free replacement if you call sprint......

When I close my Sanyo SCP-7050 cell phone, the screen will go blank for a few seconds. Then, it will come back on and state that it's "Looking for service..." and then "Entering Sprint service area." After that, everything is back to normal.

It doesn't happen all the time but just enough to be frustrating.
