You cant use it on the Sprint network because the two uses different technology to accept radio signals. Sprint have the fast, more stable CDMA network and Nextel uses the slow, outdated network IDEN. So sorry its like using a Ford key to start a Toyota.

How do i get my sprint phone to work on wi-fi ?


sprint phone or samsung ?
Sprint offers high-speed WiFi service for existing Nextel customers, and provides an extensive network of hotspots in the United States at locations commonly frequented by business travelers, such as hotels, airports and conference centers.
Getting Sprint WiFi requires a Nextel customer account, connection-management software, a MyNextel user account and a computer that supports high-speed broadband.
Sprint WiFi plans include an unlimited WiFi hotspot and an unlimited PC access plan with a WiFi hotspot package.

Sign up for WiFi service through Nextel by calling 1-800-SPRINT1.
Download and install the Nextel Connection Manager software.
Nextel offers the WiFi version of the connection-management software at the Sprint Nextel website (see Resources).
Register your account via MyNextel on the Sprint Nextel website (see Below).

Samsung Epic 4G Phone into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

The Samsung Epic 4G smart phone allows you to convert your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot and connect up to five devices.
Such a set-up will keep you from running around searching for an area that offers free Wi-FI. If you're stuck in an airport or staying overnight at a hotel, you won't have to pay extra for Internet service.
You can connect your laptop or other media device to your phone's Wi-Fi network.

Press the "Home" button, which looks like the outline of a house, on the bottom of your Samsung Epic 4G phone.
Click the "Menu" button to the left of the "Home" button.

Click the "Settings" icon, which looks like a gray box with a spoke in the middle.


Scroll through the list and click "Wireless & Networks."


Press "4G" until a check mark appears, indicating the 4G network is enabled.


Click the "Home" button.
The 4G icon will appear to the left of your signal bars in the upper-right corner of your screen.
The separate sets of bars above the 4G logo indicate the strength of your 4G signal.
When the bars above the 4G logo are completely gray and the 4G logo is white, you have a weak signal.
When you are no longer receiving a 4G signal, your 4G logo will be gray and a 3G logo will appear, indicating that the 3G network is now enabled. If both of the logos disappear, you are not receiving any signal.
You must have either a 3G or a 4G signal to use your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Enable Sprint Hotspot
Press the "Applications" icon, a blue box with four whites squares in it, in the lower-right corner of your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

Press the "Sprint Hotspot" icon, which looks like a phone with two signal bars on the right side, until a check mark appears to the right of the icon, signaling the Spring hotspot function is enabled.
A pass-key allowing you to connect other devices to the phone's network will appear on the screen.
Write the pass-key down.


Enable Wi-Fi on your laptop or other device that you want to tether to your Samsung Epic 4G phone.


Search for the Wi-Fi network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone.
The name of the network will begin with "SPH-D700XXX."
To change the name of the Wi-Fi network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone, press the "Menu" button; the "Settings" icon; and "Device Name." Enter the new name for phone's Wi-Fi network.


Click the network affiliated with your Samsung Epic 4G phone on the device you want to tether to your phone'ss Wi-Fii network.
Enter the pass-key, and click "OK."
Your device will now be tethered to the Wi-Fi hotspot on your Samsung Epic 4G phone.

Can boost mobile sim work in a pro 700


Hi,

PRO 700 DOES NOT USE SIM CARDS! instead like the other sprint phones it uses the ESN/MEID number on the back. Just call sprint and tell them you want to do an ESN SWAP or SWITCH TO A NEW PHONE and they will ask you for the number under the battery. They will also walk you through activating everything including Direct Connect. It is as fast as Nextel traditional Direct Connect but it has a MUCH LARGER COVERAGE AREA FOR VOICE AND DIRECT CONNECT. Soon these phones will take control and the whole IDEN network Nextel uses will be converted to CDMA (sprints High Speed Network).

Sim from boost phone wont work in my nextel/sprint motorola ic502


Your nextel/sprint k502 maybe 'Network Locked' and thusl not allow another network Sim to be used: if you are no nonger under contract, you maybe able to get a free NCK or NUK Network unlock code.

Will my phone work


Above is incorrect. Boost uses two different networks each is different technology. The one using SIM cards is the IDEN network (Nextel). The other is Sprint (who owns Boost) and that does not take a SIM, it's a CDMA network. All Sprint phones can work on this network,but you must get Boost to activate the phone. They won't do this unless you are already a customer and tell them you are replacing a broken phone, then give the Sprint phone ESN# (under battery) for them to log in your account. If you have a Sprint LG Rumor it will then work without unlocking or flashing, no changes necessary.

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.
