If you just activated the SIM card via the web then just wait for email confirmation.

It took Boost about 1/2 hour to enable all settings on my iDEN phone.


The quickest way to test for FREE is to dial 225 and check for balance.

It's a free call.

If all else fail,power off unit,remove sim card and let it sit for 1 hour or more.

=====

Here the link to i920 setup

Page 77 explain how to verify the iDEN data setting.

=====

The current Windows ActiveSync is Version 4.5

Link HERE

The original ActivcSync from the original package can be dated back in 20006!

Check the version and make sure your are on Version 4.5

====

Also make sure the sync cable metal contacts are clean.

use a dry cloth to clean the contacts on the phone and sync cable.

======
If ActiveSync does not see the phone the you will need to go into system/hardware manager verify the COM setting.

Setting the Way Your Phone Searches for
Networks
When you are traveling internationally, you may want to configure the phone to search
for a specific network or enable it to select the best network. You do this using the iDEN/
GSM Selection setting.
There are six options available:
Note: Your phone comes programmed with Last active as the default setting. This is
the recommended setting, which reduces network registration time.
• Last active — This option enables the phone to switch between iDEN and GSM
systems that do not overlap. For example, you send or receive calls on an iDEN
network while in New York. Then you travel to Paris. Your phone will first search for an
iDEN network. If it cannot locate one, it will automatically search for a GSM network.
Your Smartphone will always register on the last active mode.
• iDEN preferred — This option is useful if your home system is iDEN and you travel to
a country or region where GSM coverage is also available. Your Smartphone always
searches first for iDEN networks. If an iDEN network is not found, your phone will then
search for a GSM network.

• GSM preferred —This option is useful if your home system is GSM and you travel to
a country or region where iDEN is also available. Your phone will always search for
GSM networks first. If a GSM network is not found, your phone will then search for an
iDEN network.
• iDEN only — This option is useful when you are in an area that is covered by iDEN
and GSM networks, but you want to use iDEN. Your Smartphone attempts to register
only on iDEN networks. This is the optimal setting you should set your Smartphone to
when in a Nextel iDEN service region.
• GSM only — This option is useful when you are in an area that is covered by iDEN
and GSM, but you want to use GSM. Your Smartphone attempts to register only on
GSM networks. This is the optimal setting you should set your Smartphone to when in
a region with only GSM carriers.
• Roam — This option is useful when you are in an overlapping system-coverage area
and have no preference for either the iDEN or the GSM network. Your Smartphone will
switch between iDEN and GSM until it finds an acceptable network.
Note: Be aware that some features that are supported by the Nextel iDEN network
are not supported when you connect to a GSM network.
Select iDEN/GSM options
1 On the Home screen, select Start.
2 Select Settings and then Phone Networks.
3 Select iDEN/GSM Selection.
4 In iDEN/GSM selection, select to the option you want.
5 Select Done.
Searching for a Network
While you are on a GSM network, you can perform an automatic or manual search for
available networks. A manual search allows you to view the available networks and
make a selection rather than use the network automatically selected by the Nextel
Worldwide Service.
Note: Your phone will automatically attempt to register with networks that have
agreements with Nextel. By manually selecting a network, you may choose a
network that does not have an agreement with Nextel or does not offer optimal
coverage in that area.

networks to use and select Done. The Smartphone will automatically use the
preferred networks.
7 Select Done.
Limit calls to specific area codes or phone numbers
Note: You will see this option only if you are on a GSM network.
1 On the Home screen, select Start.
2 Select Settings and then Phone Calls.
3 Select Fixed Dialing and then Enable fixed dialing.

Using Wireless Data Services
Internationally
Many of your Wireless Data Services can be used internationally just as you use them in
the U.S. on the Nextel National Network. To activate your Wireless Data Services for use
abroad, contact your Nextel sales representative. See sprint.com for a list of wireless
data services you can use internationally and in which countries you can use them.
Data Connections for GSM
Setting Up Your Smartphone for Wireless Data Service Access
If you activate your Wireless Data Services for use in GSM countries (GPRS) you can
set up a GPRS connection to gain access to your corporate network or the Internet on
your Smartphone.
Before accessing your data services internationally for the first time, see “Create a
GPRS connection” and “Connect to the Internet with a GPRS connection” on page 79.
Create a GPRS connection
Note: You are not required to enter a user name, password, primary DNS, secondary
DNS, or IP address to create GPRS connection.
1 On the Home screen, select Start.
2 Select Settings and then Data Connections.

Internet).
• In Access point, enter the information provided by Nextel.
When you open a program that connects to the Internet, the Smartphone uses this
connection.
Note: If you are not sure about the information to enter, ask your Sprint Customer
Care Representative.

select the correct connection based on the network.

Trying to convert,if possible, nextel blackberry 8530i to boostmobile


watch this video


Boost Mobile has the cheapest (and slowest) data service around, and the Nextel Branded BlackBerry is the only smart phone that works with Boost's iDEN service.

The old 7520 and 7100i BlackBerry's can be purchased for around 50 dollars, and are very usable smart phones.

The newer BlackBerry 8350i is one of the best blackberry smartphones available. However on Nextel it costs more then 120 dollars a month for unlimited everything and on Boost mobile you can get unlimited service for $50 a month.


The difference however is that Boost mobile does not offer a Blackberry Data Plan and Nextel does. So if you want to browse the web, send emails, and be able to download apps, you have to convert your Nextel Blackberry to Boost Mobile.

The email works a little differently in that you can set up your yahoo or aol mail to forward to your Blackberry by using the email address

yournumber@myboostmobile.com as the forward to email address.


What are the differences of the Nextel Blackberry models?




Besides the obvious difference which is the design of the phone and the applications and memory available, the 8350i runs BlackBerry OS version 4.6 whereas the 7520 and 7100i run version 4.1. The older OS does not support as many apps and features.


To sum it up Boost Mobile Phones aren't good and Blackberry's are. It's really that simple.


Does Boost support the BlackBerry?


Not officially. Boost sells their Starter kit to "give new life to a previously used Boost or Nextel phone", but they make no specific mention of its compatibility with the BlackBerry. Using a BlackBerry on Boost is consistent with their terms and conditions, but you won't get any help from Boost for configuring your BlackBerry.


Which features work?


Voice service and basic data service work.

3rd-party apps work, including apps for web browsing, email, GPS, and instant messaging.


Over-the-air installation of apps using the BlackBerry Browser will work if youfollow the how-to.

Text messaging will work if you follow the how-to.

Apps can also be installed using the Desktop Manager software on your PC.

Which Boost plans included data service?

All Boost plans include basic data service

I can't get the data to work on my Motorola Cliq phone. I do have the data plan. People keep telling me I need to change the APN settings???


You need the "T-Mobile Android Unlimited Web + Unlimited Messages" plan or the "T-Mobile Android Unlimited Web" plan for the CLIQ. Give T-Mobile a call.

If i surf the internet then charges is applicable from my balance


Unless you have a Data plan on your account then, yes - you'll be charged for your Internet usage. If you have a pay-as-you-go account, Internet usage will be deducted from your available balance. (Read: Less minutes to talk). Without a Data plan, surfing the Internet is VERY expensive.

If you plan to both, use the Internet a lot from your phone and talk and text a lot, too (and you want a pay-as-you-go account) and if you have iDEN service in your area then Boost Mobile would be your best choice. (If you have Sprint service in your area then you'll have Boost service as well.)

And, For every 6 on-time payments, Boost will lower your monthly payment by $5. You'll start off at $50 per month for unlimited service and 18 months later you'll only be paying $35/month for unlimited Internet, talk and texting. It's the best deal out there.

The SIM is based off of the network you are using, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. You would purchase it from a store of theirs.

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.

Blackberry Curve.?


I haven't heard of an Internet-only plan on T-Mobile, as I don't think there is one. If you don't use a lot of minutes then I recommend the BlackBerry Minutes and Mail plan. It allows for 1000 Anytime Minutes, unlimited data (including Internet) and e-mai, and unlimited text messaging for $59.99
