Why are you trying to do this to that freebie phone? ans ul40. Is an assurance wireless phone I guess virgin mobile supports it. Just curious to why you would bother rooting this. It probably to new to root this. There is absolutely no information on this phone anywhere except for the specs. where would you get a rom for this? People wont waste their time rooting these 50 dollar phones there no sense in it. I have one. it does work quite well. I actually kinda like it over the usual ZTE phone they normally pass out or the actels. Quite surprised to see this have the newest OS on it Nougat 7.1.1. I bout fell over. Don't see you having any luck rooting it. Theres just no software made for it to root it. GOOD LUCK!

How do I unlock my LG-LS720 from boost mobile

If you can get to the settings menu, reset phone to Factory settings and uninstall Mobile Boost software as it does not really work, that is if the Factory settings does not remove this program automatically. Never use 3rd party software unless your mobile has been "ROOTED" and you know what you are doing.
All the Best.

Why would my hydro will give me the same message close to 50 times

There are so many issues that could be causing this. It's happened to all of us at one time or another. It could be the sender's service provider or yours, just hiccuping on this one message... It could be a network error, or even a coding error. These types of issues are common and especially occur with rooted phones.

If you have unlimited text messaging, which you probably do because I'm assuming your provider is either Cricket, Boost, Virgin, etc.,you at least won't be getting additional charges. If that is not the case, make sure to let your service provider know, so they can verify and maybe even correct the problem, as well as getting you credited.

To rule out 'your' phone, I would attempt to clear the cache on the messaging app and start there. To do this, follow the instructions for your specific Hydro phone.
Warning: This will most likely remove your email accounts and erase all text messages- so back that stuff up first!

If things gets worse, you can try 1 of 2 things:
1) Master Reset
2) Try a 3rd party text messaging app. .

Good luck and be patient. If you can't find the culprit, I'm sure the problem will resolve on it's own soon.

Doing a master reset on ANY phone is a last resort in fixing any problems with your phone. Unless you have a memory card to store all your info on, u may lose everything on your phone, including contacts, pics, and bookmarks. Before you consider doing a master reset, contact the Boost Mobile service provider. Boost Mobile uses the Sprint network, so maybe contacting them is a good place to start. And if they suggest doing a master reset, they will tell you how to perform this action. Before you do, write down all the personal info you have saved on your phone!

Trying to convert,if possible, nextel blackberry 8530i to boostmobile

watch this video

Boost Mobile has the cheapest (and slowest) data service around, and the Nextel Branded BlackBerry is the only smart phone that works with Boost's iDEN service.

The old 7520 and 7100i BlackBerry's can be purchased for around 50 dollars, and are very usable smart phones.

The newer BlackBerry 8350i is one of the best blackberry smartphones available. However on Nextel it costs more then 120 dollars a month for unlimited everything and on Boost mobile you can get unlimited service for $50 a month.

The difference however is that Boost mobile does not offer a Blackberry Data Plan and Nextel does. So if you want to browse the web, send emails, and be able to download apps, you have to convert your Nextel Blackberry to Boost Mobile.

The email works a little differently in that you can set up your yahoo or aol mail to forward to your Blackberry by using the email address

[email protected] as the forward to email address.

What are the differences of the Nextel Blackberry models?

Besides the obvious difference which is the design of the phone and the applications and memory available, the 8350i runs BlackBerry OS version 4.6 whereas the 7520 and 7100i run version 4.1. The older OS does not support as many apps and features.

To sum it up Boost Mobile Phones aren't good and Blackberry's are. It's really that simple.

Does Boost support the BlackBerry?

Not officially. Boost sells their Starter kit to "give new life to a previously used Boost or Nextel phone", but they make no specific mention of its compatibility with the BlackBerry. Using a BlackBerry on Boost is consistent with their terms and conditions, but you won't get any help from Boost for configuring your BlackBerry.

Which features work?

Voice service and basic data service work.

3rd-party apps work, including apps for web browsing, email, GPS, and instant messaging.

Over-the-air installation of apps using the BlackBerry Browser will work if youfollow the how-to.

Text messaging will work if you follow the how-to.

Apps can also be installed using the Desktop Manager software on your PC.

Which Boost plans included data service?

All Boost plans include basic data service

Can't Text Message on my wing

Make sure you have the current version on your device. Log in to your T-Mobile account and go to Support then click on Phone & Device. You should be able to verify what your version is upon upgrading to the newest software. When I had my Wing, I did that and it helped tremendously with texting, freezing, resetting, and it also helped with security settings also. Also, be sure that you dont have alot of texts in the inbox, outbox, drafts, and sent folder that drastically decreases the device's physical memory and causes freezing also. Try to keep all pictures, files, videos, music, and 3rd party applications on your memory card. Windows Mobile devices are known for bugs and freezing and any little thing can set them off.

Forgot security code on old phone

The default security code for Nokia is 12345
IMEI: 354827019225562
Master code: 6764307061
Close all applications on your phone.
With your phone switched ON, remove the battery.
Then remove the SIM card.
Replace the battery without the SIM card and switch your phone on.

Type in the security codes (anything) until the phone request the Master code, (in the phone lock window) when it does, leave your phone still, don’t use it for 15 minutes, then type in the Master code.
This is the code needed to reset the Security code, nothing else, and it’s for your phone only.
If your phone doesn't request a Master code, you will have to reset the Security code via an unlock device (box). The phone has to be connected directly to the device.
