Boost Web Content?

Can the content available via the Boost Wireless Web feature be modified? Is there anyway to gain access to the Nextel content?

As you know, Boost targets the hip-hop demographic. Hence, no News links. They've got Sports, Music, Games etc.

I recently gave a Boost phone to my 75 year old dad. I don't see him chirpin w/his homies, often. But, I think he might want to ball scores and CNN news etc.

Download app on i415.

I lost the download app on my i415. I've called boost about this a couple of times but I keep getting directed to oftware/html/firmware_utility.html which doesn't list my phone. Raul told me that the download for the 450 will work, but it doesn't.

Can anyone tell me how I can recover the download app for my 415?

Calling Features

Does Boost offer call waiting? I have call waiting on in my phone settings but whenever some one calls and I am on the line they go directly to vm. Is there a feature code I have do dial in order to activate the feature?

Hey Jess, Need Help!

Hey Jess,

You already know I am a Boost customer. I have a i415 and tonight I got a i450. So I put my SIM in the 450 and then went online and activated the new SIM so I could put it in the 415 for my gf.

Well, I went through the activation process and got the phone # and the WT #. Put the SIM in the 415 and nothing. It boots and goes through the connecting process and then says "no service"
Help Please

I sent you my # in a email directly to you earlier if you need to call me.

Boost Wireless Web

Does the boost wireless web access only allow access to boost mobile sites (mainly for ringtones and game downloads)? I have heard on other sites that the wireless web that boost offers is only for their websites.

Nextel Partner's Question for Jess (and others)

I was looking into Boost service, and after some research found that I live in a Nextel Partner's market (Upstate NY) where people have told me that I would not be able to make outgoing calls. Is this still the case or does Boost now allow outgoing roaming on Partner's towers? Are there any locations that Boost does NOT fully serve on Nextel's network?

I was also told that for those Partner's makets where Boost has debuted, the billing was according to the central time zone, and hence would cause my off peak hours to be from 10pm-8am as opposed to the advertised 9pm-7am. Any truth to that?

Minimum Cost

Could someone explain what the minimum cost for Boost pay as you go is? I get the idea that if I buy a $20 Re-Boost card, and don't use it all within 90 days that the unused portion expires. Is that right? So this would work out to $6.66 a month if I get a $20 card every 3 months.

All was working fine then all of a sudden I can't login to AIM anymore it gives me a network error or timeout no server response.

Toll Free Hang Up Calls

For the past week I have been getting daily hangup calls from a toll free # 877-851-4376
I have searched the net up and down for info on this # to no avail. Is there anything I could do to block this # from calling. I know I could just ignore the call but it is annoying to have the phone ring in the middle of the day and know it is crap.
