SOURCE: i have a boost mobile

Welcome to FixYa!

If you already unlocked the Blackberry phone, simply put the Boost Mobile SIM Card (from the Boost Prepaid Phone) to the Blackberry Phone. The mobile number and the credits are link with the SIM Card and not the phone.

In case your Boost Mobile Prepaid Phone does not have a SIM Card (CDMA series), you have to purchase a Boost Mobile SIM Card and call the Boost mobile hotline to activate your newly purchases SIM and request to transfer your prepaid balance to the new SIM.

You can call to this number 888-266-7848
How to reach a live person:

  • Wait for the message to go to English
  • Press 5
  • Press 2
  • Press 4
  • Wait through all of the menu options, and then a few seconds longer until prompted to talk to a rep
  • Press 0
  • Press 2


Hours of Operation: 4am PST - 11pm PST

Alternate instructions for reaching a person: Wait until the menu goes to english and then press 8 and then 8 again.

Thank you for using Fixya, have a great day.

SOURCE: i have unlocked my blackberry

If you are trying to use your Blackberry 9700 Bold on Boost Mobile then it may not work, as the phone may not support the technology with which Boost Mobile runs on. You would only be able to use Blackberry 9700 Bold on GSM carriers once unlocked.

I need to unlock my moto g boost mobile and I need the unlock codes please.


Boost Mobile Moto Gis CDMA only. CDMA phones don't take SIM cards, and the only unlock available is bootloader unlock via Motorola's website. If your country doesn't have CDMA carriers, don't buy the Boost Mobile, US Cellular, or Verizon Moto G, unless you plan on using it on Wi-Fi only

Hydro Icon C6730 with Boost Mobile. How can I unlock?


Try a sim card from a carrier that is not for the phone. If your carrier is boost mobile then use a Verizon or sprint sim card, even a new sim card will not work if it is the carrier locked to the phone. It must be a non carrier sim card.

If I put my boost mobile sim in my new unlocked phone can i keep my service with boost and my number?


Your sim card is only "programmed" to work with your current phone and carrier. For example, if you took a windows program DVD and tried to install that windows program on Apple's OSX, it would not work. That sim card is like the DVD. The program for your phone's carrier (since Boost uses other carriers like Verizon, Sprint and AT&T) will not work and may ruin your phone or sim card. Happened to me, so I know.

I am trying to unlock my Blackberry Curve 8330 with Verizon so I can use it with AT&T, how do I do this? I typed in the ##000000 so I am at the CDMA Service Edit Screen but now I am lost, help!


Your phone is CDMA (Doesn't use Sim Card), AT&T is GSM (Uses Sim Card). It woudl be pointless trying to unlock this phone for use with at&T. Your phone can only be used with Boost Mobile if unlocked.

When can I buy an UNLOCKED EVO 4G?


The EVO 4G is a CDMA phone. It is not unlocked like a phone that runs on a SIM card (like AT&T or T-Mobile). It can really only be used with Sprint (probably Virgin & Boost, maybe Verizon eventually), but is completely incompatible with any SIM card or GSM provider (like AT&T, T-Mobile, etc).

How do You unlock a sidekick 08?


Your Sidekick operates on a GSM cellular network. Your Boost SIM card (and Boost Mobile phones) operate on an iDEN cellular system. You cannot use a Boost SIM card in a Sidekick. (FYI - SIM cards cannot be unlocked. Only cellphones phones can be unlocked.)
