    the only Nextel phones that you can bring to Boost mobile are the phones that are walkie talkie capable.

    I have a HTC touch pro and it was on Boost Mobile before. I can't figure out how to activate it.

    YES YOU CAN!!!!! I have the HTC TOUCH PRO , currently using it with boost mobile on their CDMA network, all you have to do is have boots mobile reprogram the htc for you. they only asked me for the HEX number on the back of the phone and they follow me through the steps on how to reprogram it for my phone number. be aware that some reps will not even try to help you on this, you just have to get a cool one thats willing to help. if one does not help you , try another rep. so far the internet, phone and text messages work just fine on the pay as you go plan, didnt have to do any other modifications to my phone whatsoever.

    forgot to mention that for the internet to work , you may have to got to your "settings" page, under "system " hit UPDATE PROFILE as well as UPDATE PRL....... this worked for me, hope this information works.

    I am a little confused. Do these directions already assume that the HTC is already flashed for Boost or is flashing not necessary?

    so im switching an htc touch pro 2 from sprint to boost. i read ur steps but i didnt exactly understand where to sign up. im taking it its "my sprint" at the bottom that you sign up for. when i try the page says sorry temporary unavailble. are they changing their site so you cant do this anymore? is there any other way to do this transfer. btw if u still cant get internet on ur phone try checking to see if ur wifi is turned off

    Since last time I checked, the Sprint website workaround no longer works. What I did was get a used HTC Touch Pro2 on Craigslist(Make sure it's not stolen/bad ESN by meeting seller at a Sprint store and having them check it), and after trying the website I called Boost Mobile's customer service. At first I just gave them the ESN when they asked for it and Said it was a Sanyo Mirro if asked. When they looked up the ESN and asked me if it the phone said Boost Mobile on it I told them a friend gave me a Sprint Sanyo Mirro(Don't EVER tell them it's a HTC or anything like that). I said that I heard that it could be activated on their network and I had no money to buy a new Boost Branded phone. This did NOT work the first two times, but third time was a charm. They can activate it if they know how to and want to, but they're not supposed to. I was nice to them and stressed how much I needed that phone to work. Just keep trying, it should eventually work. After they activate it, it works fine in about half an hour, that's it. Hope that helps.

    I know a couple of you posted a reply but I find those answer`s coming from someone that has done this a lot..
    Is there a more detailed way of doing this..
    I am looking to buy one of these phones and use it on Boost so I don`t want to screw it up and waste a bunch of money..
    So if there is a link to this or someone would take the time and describe it to a newbe..
    Thanks.
