I am trying to use the sim card and my current payment plans with boost on my old at&t phone that i got unlocked, but i need to know how to make that work..

the sim card is still tied to the previous service provider
get a new sim card from your new service provider
keep the plastic card that the sim card is attached to as there is the PUK code that you will need to open the phone stamped on that plastic card

How can you use a blackberry nextel phone with your boost plan

You do not need to "unlock" that blackberry.  If you put your boost sim in it the phone calling and direct connect will work immediately.  Getting the txting and internet to work require you to install other service books.  Try this link  which explains how to remove the old books and add the correct service book to use mms and internet.

SAMSUNG E250i sim crash problem

hi, don't panic! You mobile phone is fine, problem is with the sim card. Try inserting sim card in some other phone (Try Nokia) it will definitely work. If you dont hav different mobile phone then carry your sim card to customer care and they will change the same and give you duplicate sim. They may charge something for duplicate sim card.

Retrieve 'bumped out 'message from phone

I am going to have to side on the No side. Some phones have a small limited memory to store these messages, so when that space runs out, the system removes the last text to make room for new ones. I had a friend with a Moto Q on Verizon (CDMA = No SIM) and it was her biggest complaint.

My advice is to erase all the messages you dont want as you get them in, that way this wont happen.

Also, backup the phone, you can find the utilities online. Verizon does offer a backup service in their cloud for your address book. I know you use Boost, which is owned by Sprint (not verizon as you indicated). Boost uses the Nextel technology of Sprint which is iDen. That is closely related to GSM.

Net your service provider that is your only option. I am sorry.

I put a boost chip in my ic902 and its says please insert right sim. sim doesnt match stored accnt info..does anyone know what to do? i really want this to work..please help! im ignorant on this subject.....

>>>>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.

If this information has been helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer.

I855 text messaging

If this your motorola i855e is a Nextel phone, then not all the features will work very well if you put in a Boost Mobile sim card. Features like Texting, Web browsing are not likely to function very well or at all. Get a Boost phone for a Boost sim card. Cheers.
