. Download and install the BlackBerry Desktop Software on your Windows PC. Get it from:
https://www.blackberry.com/Download...B93E4F3BB068C22
I'm using version Version 4.6 and I recommend you do the same although I believe any version 4.1 or greater will work.

2.
Download and install BlackBerry OS 4.1.0.534 on your Windows PC from:https://www.blackberry.com/Software...lient=biTZdMddN
This is a critical step that people tend to skip. You must have the OS installed on your PC in order for the Desktop Manager to work correctly and be able to reinstall the browser.

3. Download the service books
from here:
http://wapreview.com/download/MMS_WiFiBrowser.zip
Unzip the contained file, MMS_WiFiBrowser.ipd. into a folder where you will be able to find it

4. Plug in2.gif your phone to a USB port2.gif and start the BlackBerryDesktop Manager. If it says it needs to upgrade the phone's OS, let it.

If it doesn't say it needs to update go into Application Loader > Add Remove Applications. Again, if it says it needs to upgrade the phone's OS, let it.

The upgrade can take up to an hour so don't panic if it seems hung, just let it finish.

4. On you BlackBerry, close all open apps and delete the Browser (even if you don't see a browser in the menu!) by going to Options>Advanced Options>Applications>Browser, press the scroll wheel2.gif and choose delete, confirm the deletion and the option to reboot your phone now.

5. When the phone restarts, go to Options -> Advanced Options ->
Service Books hold Alt and hit {A/S}{A/S}{B/N}{E/R}{B/N} (for full QWERTY phones it's Alt + {S}{B}{E}{B}).
A message reading "Legacy SB Restore Enabled" will appear if you did this correctly.

6. Connect your phone to the PC again. In Desktop Manager choose "Backup and Restore" , then "Restore", then browse to and select the MMS_WiFiBrowser.ipd file that you downloaded in step 3.

7. After installing the
service books, click Main Menu, then Application Loader > Add / Remove Applications. Check the empty boxes next to the Browser, JavaScript and Help to reinstall them.

8. After the phone restarts you should have a working HotSpot Browser icon and there should be a working MMS option for each entry in your address book and a Compose MMS option in the Messages app.

Gmail, Opera Mini and many other third party data aware apps will also work with this set up.

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 may be 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 :-
http://www.mobileunlockguide.com/mobile-phone/
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.

You can unlock nextel blackberry curve 8350i with a blackberry unlock code. To get that code you can make private call to nextel provider and make request about unlock code for your phone. If your provider didn't give you that code, you can purchase instant unlock code at third party sites to unlock your phone.

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

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 want to unlock my sprint/nextel ic902 phone so my boost mobile simcard will work in it?


>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 information has been helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer.
