    Re: How to get sprint phones on boostmobile cdma

    Why do you say to go to sprint.com? I want to get a sprint phone to work on boost. Shouldn"t I go to boost.com? When I try to set up user name on sprint, it says my info does not match their records. I have no account with sprint, so I am confused. Any clarification would be appreciated. Thanks

    Re: How to get sprint phones on boostmobile cdma

    Well I just called Boost. Because they see that I have a blackberry phone, they send me to the blackberry specialist. I gave them the number from a sprint blackberry and they could not switch it over. Should I call and NOT tell them it is a blackberry??? What am I doing wrong??

    Re: How to get sprint phones on boostmobile cdma

    ok. to help clarify things, sprint owns boost, so sprint.com i assume handles all the online accounts for new boost accounts right? that is why you are telling us to go to sprint.com? another question...does anyone know if ALL features are garanteed to work? i heard even unlocked nextel phones need configuring before switching them to boost, even tho sprint sales reps already told me i could switch it (without esn# tricks)....so i was wondering if there might be any problems switching a sprint blackberry to a boost unlimited plan

    ive picked out the blackberry world 8830 from sprint...if it goes to the boost unlimited plan, blackberry features will not work? what does a blackberry do besides blackberry emailing and blackberry instant messaging? (sorry never had a BlackBerry before) just wondering what i will be missing on the unlimited plan instead of the blackberry plan.

    and is there ANYONE out there who disputes the idea that all features will work like normal using this method? if ANYONE has had any kind of problem with their converted phone it would be very helpful to let me know what kind of problems.

    my main concerns are unlimited minutes, unlimited text, and unlimited internet. don't care about sprint tv, or anything sprint offers. i am only concerned about making sure all the boost features are working.

    Re: How to get sprint phones on boostmobile cdma

    TANK, I tired to sign up at sprint.com, but when I enter the info requested, ie. name, email, phone number and zip code, I get an error-"We are unable to validate you are the account holder. Please chat with us by clicking the icon on the upper right hand side of the page."
    Is there another way I am supposed to be registering at sprint.com??
    Some other info. The phone I bought initially is a blackberry from Boost. Then when I read that my sprint blackberry would work, I have been trying to switch the phones. Am I having so much trouble because I have a blackberry account ? Could it be that they are more scrutanized? I have a short time left to return the boost blackberry for a refund, so any assist would be appreciated.
