    I purchased a used Boost Mobile ZTE Warp

    Sequent from a reputable seller on Ebay. Boost

    tells me they can't activate it, the MEID isn't in

    their system. This IS a Boost phone. It boots up

    with the Boost logo, says Boost Mobile beneath

    the signal strength indicator (which shows it

    receiving a signal AND 3G). It has Call Balance,

    Call Reboost, and Care Services in the

    contacts, everything in the phone is set up for

    Boost. Is Boost bending me over with no

    reacharound because they want me to buy a

    phone from them? I've been a Boost customer

    for over 5 years. Is this how they reward loyalty?

    Re: Can't activate Boost ZTE Warp Sequent

    Is it possible the phone's software was flashed to Boost?

    If it was, is it a brick?

    Not necessarily - It sounds like the phone was flashed but they didn't change the MEID. You can change the MEID, but you need a donor phone from Boost and someone with the right software that does phone flashing.
