No. Because Boost mobile runs on a CDMA network, this will not work.

Unlocking ic902 to work with boost mobile sim


>>Expert
>>Motorola Phones
>>Boost Mobile

I activate phones for Boost Mobile.

I'm sorry to tell you, but an ic902 can never work on 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.

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.

How do I unlock/flash my virgin mobile kyocera x-tc for free?


You cant unlock / flash your XTC. Cool phone, but only works on CDMA network, not on the iDen network like Boost phones. If you want to use Boost phone service, you'll have to select one of the 1/2 dozen boost mobile phones.

Is a boost mobile sim good in a sprint black berry 8830?


Only if the blackberry is unlocked from the origional carrier. Sounds like your phone is still locked. Contact the carrier and if you are in decent standing with the company, they will provide a sim unlock for the device.
