I have a boost mobile I465 and i wanted to use with nextel but it asked it me for a special code


When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security Code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (Security Code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock Security Code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.
You can also try this WEB site :-

The IMEI number is unique the each mobile phone.
The number is printed on the label under the battery.
You can also get the IMEI number by entering this on your phone
*#06# It will then display your IMEI number and you may also get a unique global serial number. Your IMEI number should be 15 digits

How Can I Use My Boost Mobile Sim In My I776 Sprint Nextel Phone?


Yep, the 1776 is a boost phone...you can NOT put a nextel sim in a boost, but putting a boost sim in a nextel works fine.

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

>>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 put a t mobile chip to my i880 and it saying to give me the special code


The phone is locked, but that doesn't matter, IT WILL NOT WORK WITH T-MOBILE!! Or AT&T or any GSM for that matter.

Yes, iDEN phones, the phones used for Nextel, do have a SIM card, but this is a very different SIM and will NOT work with any T-Mobile, AT&T, etc. SIM cards. Even if it were unlocked, that makes no difference. It uses a different technology. NO Sprint or Nextel phone will ever work on T-Mobile. Neither will a Verizon phone.

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.

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.
