Boost Mobile usees IDEN Technology which IS NOT compatible with GSM phones, they are two different systems and Boost/Nextel are the only comany in the US that are using the technology, Although some Nextel phones are cross compatible the list is very small, you will need an Iden Phone such as the motorola i425 for your boost mobile sim card

Put nextal sim card in i290 phone 'boost' and now says please whait to enter special code


although boost is a ppd version of nextel, the sims cards are different and are not interchangeable between devices........you can contact SprintNextel and they will give you the "subsidy unlock" code, which is the special code required for your device to stop looking for a specific sim card. If they wont give you the code then you can google "motorola instant unlock" or whatever brand device it is and chose from the large list of web services that can send you the key for just a few dollars. GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!!

The ic902 takes a special SIM card that is unique to PowerSource phones. Those phones use Sprint Voice and Data, and only Nextel walkie-talkie and will not work on Boost Mobile Phones.

I want to use a t mobile sim card in a motorola i855 boost phone


T-mobile uses GSM technology, whereas Boost Mobile's technology is IDEN. There is no way a T-mobile sim card will work inside a Boost Motorola i855 phone or any Boost phones for that matter and, of course, vice versa.

I855 text messaging


If this your motorola i855e is a Nextel phone, then not all the features will work very well if you put in a Boost Mobile sim card. Features like Texting, Web browsing are not likely to function very well or at all. Get a Boost phone for a Boost sim card. Cheers.

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.
