What is the code of motorola boost i776

Unlock Boost Phone for Nextel Service

Boost cell phones will work with on the Nextel network. However, only very basic functions such as making & receiving calls and receiving text messages will be available. These limited abilities do not meet the needs of many cell phone subscribers.

To unlock available features, you need to have computer cables to attach your phone to computer. Also required are your codeplug (file type RAR - use this link to get Microsoft help - ) and an RSS program.

To unlock your phone is fairly complicated and you would need to be an advanced computer user. The program you will need to write will depend on your particular phone model and the features or services you require. For those less technical, there are message boards on the internet (ie: cell phone hacks and MP3Car) where experts volunteer to write the programs to unlock phones. Some people choose pay services where they can pay a one time charge for the services they want unlocked.

What is surprising is that Nextel doesn't do a good job of helping subscribers unlock their Boost phones, since this would allow Nextel to sell additional value added services. Unlocking Boost phones allows the phone to download ring tones, applications such as games, walkie-talkie (Moto Talk) and sending text messages and pictures. Not only are these money making ventures for Nextel, the walkie-talkie feature distinguishes Nextel from the other major wireless companies.

Other features that are disabled can change the look and feel of the phone. These include keypad and screen color, keypad lights, inverted LCD and American dialing (555-555-5555). Also, people unlock services which are typically included with most plans including 3-way calling, voice activation dialing, and speaker phones.

Some people unlock their phone to turn off billing charges such as picture and text messaging, to obtain premium service such as widen, which allows you to surf the internet at faster speeds , or access GPS.

One of the strange twists is even if you unlock your phone for some features; Nextel may not provide the service in all markets. This often happens with trying to use your phone as a computer modem, even if widen is turned on.

Whatever you decide, just be careful. Downloading the wrong program could completely disable your phone or you could get caught by Nextel for stealing services.

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.

Sound as though maybe you're trying to use a "boost" sim card on a Nextel phone. The phone has to be unlocked in order for that to work.
