I have a Nextel sim card in my boost phone i335 I need special. Code


Call Nextel and have them activate that phone to your account.

Nextel, Sprint, and Boost are the same company.

Nextel is the iden network,
Sprint is the CDMA network
and Boost is the prepaid network. But their owned by Sprint

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.

My Nextel i880 says enter special code what should I do


Sound as though maybe you're trying to use a "boost" sim card on a Nextel phone. The phone has to be unlocked in order for that to work.

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.

Special unlock code


Your phone may state that you need the "special unlock" code but there is no such thing. This issue is rarely solved by powercycling the phone. In many cases the cusomer will have to take the phone to the nearest service and repair center for an exchange.

Want to use Boost Phone i425t (Pay as you go) with my Nextel SIM Card


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.

Motorola i205


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.

My Motorola i415 is locked !


There is no actual "Special Code". The phone is programmed for one, but it won't work. If you can get to a Sprint Nextel repair center, ask them to use RSS to unlock the codeplug. Also note that many Nextel SIM cards will do this to a Boost phone.
