I believe that your i920 phone is locked to sprint or nextel carrier.
in order for your sim card to fully work on that phone you will first need to unlock it, by calling sprint and asking for a unlock code on a separate phone. they then will tell u how to unlock it, then your sim card, should work on the i920 phone.

the # to sprint is 1-888-211-4727

now, for some bad news some of the phone that sprint offers when unlocked are not compatible to run on t-mobil network do to software installed on the phone, you may or may not have the same issue. wtich if your already able to make calls on that phone using the boost sim card then it possible youll be in luck. but first thign is a most you need to fully unlock that phone,so its not locked to sprint/nextel.

good luck. sprint will know this for sure.

Why wont my boost sim card work in a nextel phone

you either have to do a factory reset on the phone or the previous owner of the phone (assuming there was one) has to release the phone or request a bill by calling nextel

I have a i920 for nextel and i have boost mobile and i cant txt

Commonly, you need to contact Boost Mobile to have them set that service up for you. You usually need an internet package that you have to pay for upfront seeing as Boost is a prepaid phone service. But to fix it- Try taking the battery out of your phone while it is still turned on. That is called a hard reset. It usually refreshes the phone with the cell towers and updates the roaming list with them. But call Boost for your phone email address. Hope i've helped.

Cant send or recieve text messages

This message means you no longer have use of your phone.

1) Your sim card may have slipped loose from the back of your phone.
2) Your Cell Phone Provider has terminated your connection.
