You should get the phone to a service center because most probably the phone's firmware was corrupted and needs to be reflashed.
However you may check if the phone can be saved by issuing the following command. Close the phone first. Now press (and keep pressed) both " * " and " # " keys. With these 2 keys pressed, press the power button (red phone). Your phone should enter bootloader mode. Try this combination some 3-4 times if you don't succed at first and remember your phone must be closed when you begin. If the phone enters in bootloader mode it would be relative easy for a service center to fix it by reflashing it's rom and this woun't cost too much, otherwise it may turn out to be expensive and difficult to save the phone.

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.
