    Re: Have HTC-Touch Pro w/Sprint, want to switch to Boost Mobile

    From the sounds of it You good people may be able to help me. Yesterday i activated an HTC TOUCH PRO on Boost Mobile (USING THE STEPS ABOVE.. THANK YOU YOU'RE WONDERFUL). Everything is successfully functioning, except for outgoing MMS. The Picturemail is asking for a password. I am under the impression that this is happening b/c i did the auto update when activating the phone. When i go to Settings and view the settings for the phone at the top the previous owner's phone number is still showing. I'm thinking i should have entered the unlock code and edited everything manually after the auto activation???

    Can someone please shed some light on how i can get outgoing mms messages to work -OR- how to bypass the password.

    Thanks in advance.

    TANK0378,

    Thanks for the swift reply. I went into settings and updated the profile several times, but i had no luck. As a matter of fact, i believe i received an error message! Any other ideas?

    I'm thinking i might have get an unlock code and edit the MSID???? (how i'm going to get an unlock code - i don't know... Its not like i can call boost customer service, right?)

    look forward to hearing from you...

    HTC TOUCH PRO fully functional on BOOST MOBILE.

    ESN Swap working GREAT for picturemail function.

    Web got cut off on Sunday Morning. I took a risk and called sprint tech services, and after a few tweeks here and there, web got turned back on!

    Thanks for all your help.

    PS i read somewhere that it may be best to call Boost or Sprint on a Sunday... I officially Agree!

    Tank0378 thanx for the advice I followed the instruction and activated my Sprint Touch Pro2 with my boost account yesterday. It was easy to do and everything is in great working condition. People trying to say you cant activate sprint phones to boost let them keep being ignorant...lol
