    THe phone says to call provider. But they are closed.

    My friend had a boost motorola and it broke so i gave him my nextel i95cl and he put his sim chip in it. it worked for 3 days and then it stopped working.

    It was unlocked. It asked for a code and i think he may have entered it wrong. Does it lock you out after 3 tries?

    how long do you hold the pwr button?

  • pk chops Mar 19, 2008

    It did not work. I believe that we have to wait till they open. I had this problem along time ago and they had to go through a series of button's. I thought that you guys might know it. I believe it is a standard process. But I could not write it down fast enough.

    It's like 15 button or something. So no one knows what it is? That is why I asked!

    some models do not need the unlock code rather it will ask you to wait untill you can enter the "Special Code" then all you have to do is turn the phone off and then back on.

    Boost SIM cards work in Nextel phones w/o unlocking the phone.
    If you want to use a Nextel SIM in a Boost phone, THE BOOST PHONE MUST BE UNLOCKED.

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'm trying to transfer my Boost sims card to a Tmobile Samsung Behold but it asks for a network code? My IMEI for the Behold is 35191503181090/0 03


Boost Mobile runs on an IDEN network where tmobile runs on a GSM network. Unfortunately the boostmobile sim card will only work in nextel and boostmobile branded IDEN phones.

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


>>Expert
>>Motorola Phones
>>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 your motorola i855e is a Nextel phone, then not all the features will work very well if you put in a Boost Mobile sim card. Features like Texting, Web browsing are not likely to function very well or at all. Get a Boost phone for a Boost sim card. Cheers.

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.

If this phone was originally a Boost phone, it is more then likley on the IDEN network, which is exclusive to Nextel/Boost. Once the new SIM from the company other then Nextel/Boost is put in the phone, it will ask for a special code- thus rendering the phone useless on the new network. IDEN is only used by Nextel/Boost and another company out of the South called southernlinc.
