Want to use Boost Phone i425t (Pay as you go) with my Nextel SIM Card
I ran over my Nextel phone I did not have insurance. They were going to charge too much to replace it. SO I purchased the Boost i425 prepay phone at Walmart b/c it stated on the pkg. Nextel. But when I place my SIM card in it asks for the special code. 8 digits. I contacted Nextel and they gave me my code for my SIM card, but it said it was invalid and locks me out after the 3rd try. Does anyone know how I can make this phone work with my SIM card?
Thanks for any help!

When you are using a Nextel sim card in a Boost phone, The Boost phone recognizes that it is not the alotted sim and will automatically lock up. This doesn't happen in all cases but it does happen often. There is no way to fix this issue besides replacing the phone, which you can do through warranty if you can not return it to the store.

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 maybe 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 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.
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.
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.
You cannot use a Boost sim card in the phone, it HAS to be a powersource sim card. You may be able to purchase one of these at a Sprint Nextel Repair location, or via Customer Care Sales. Let me know how it goes, I do apologize for the incovience. Justin Please rate me if solution works
you need to add a plan with boost or nextel, i know its ridiculous it won't show you the name. If you have boost make sure customer service has the right model phone that you have and the proper sim card and make sure they enabled pay as you text messaging
