Question about Motorola Mobility i730 Cellular Phone

Open Question

Can you unlock a motorola i730 from Nextel to use with a Boost mobile sim card? When I put my sim card from Boost mobile in the phone I get a signal but have a message on the screen stating "Please wait for access code" that never goes away. I have contacted a couple of other sights and they say it cannot be done. Is this correct?

Seems that you will have to take it to a proper phone shop. They can try to restore it there, but if not, they may have to send it away. There is nothing you personally can do without your code. Hope that this helps and good luck

    What model on boost? Most likely you need to contact Boost but let us know what model.

    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.

    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 http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1530734  which explains how to remove the old books and add the correct service book to use mms and internet.

    I brought a ic902 at a auction and i have a boost mobile. the phone works ok. But when i put my sim card in it, the phone reads invalid sim, put old sim back in. what can i do to use my sim with this phone


    >>Expert

    >>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.

    I have a t-mobile simcard and is asking me for a lock code


    If you are attempting to use a T-Mobile SIM card in a Nextel Motorola i730 mobile phone it will NOT work.

    T-Mobile phones operate off of a GSM network. The Nextel i730 operates on an iDEN network.

    The phone you have can never be compatible with the network you are trying to use it on.

    Need Boost SIM card to work in Nextel Motorola Buzz+ ic602 phone.


    I called Boost support about the same issue and I was told that that particular phone and any other Ic series phone by motorola will not work with Boost Mobile. There was also a few other phones that will not work. Try calling thier support line and requesting the list of phones that won't work. Good luck.
