Regarding text and pix, and Web settings, the BB must be set according to your provider settings.
Ring the SIM provider, or give us the provider info to get the right settings. Many providers can set the phone automatically sending you a service SMS message, contact the SIM provider customer support number to find out if this service is available.
If your provider is Boost, see the link here: Boost Mobile: Contact Info

Tips for a great answer:
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
firstname.lastname@example.org 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

Boost cell phones will work with on the Nextel network. However, only very basic functions such as making & receiving calls and receiving text messages will be available. These limited abilities do not meet the needs of many cell phone subscribers.
To unlock available features, you need to have computer cables to attach your phone to computer. Also required are your codeplug (file type RAR - use this link to get Microsoft help - http://multiplexelectronics.home.att.net/moddinginfo.html ) and an RSS program.
To unlock your phone is fairly complicated and you would need to be an advanced computer user. The program you will need to write will depend on your particular phone model and the features or services you require. For those less technical, there are message boards on the internet (ie: cell phone hacks and MP3Car) where experts volunteer to write the programs to unlock phones. Some people choose pay services where they can pay a one time charge for the services they want unlocked.
What is surprising is that Nextel doesn't do a good job of helping subscribers unlock their Boost phones, since this would allow Nextel to sell additional value added services. Unlocking Boost phones allows the phone to download ring tones, applications such as games, walkie-talkie (Moto Talk) and sending text messages and pictures. Not only are these money making ventures for Nextel, the walkie-talkie feature distinguishes Nextel from the other major wireless companies.
Other features that are disabled can change the look and feel of the phone. These include keypad and screen color, keypad lights, inverted LCD and American dialing (555-555-5555). Also, people unlock services which are typically included with most plans including 3-way calling, voice activation dialing, and speaker phones.
Some people unlock their phone to turn off billing charges such as picture and text messaging, to obtain premium service such as widen, which allows you to surf the internet at faster speeds , or access GPS.
One of the strange twists is even if you unlock your phone for some features; Nextel may not provide the service in all markets. This often happens with trying to use your phone as a computer modem, even if widen is turned on.
Whatever you decide, just be careful. Downloading the wrong program could completely disable your phone or you could get caught by Nextel for stealing services.
