Do Boost credits ever expire?

I'm considering buying/giving a Boost phone to someone who doesn't really need or use phone on regular basis. This would be for emergency etc. My question/concern is that I don't want to lose any credits if they go un-used. I understand that a re-boost is required at least every 90 days. Correct?

What's the minimum Re-Boost?

If there are still usused Boost credits, will they continue to accumulate?

It looks the Chirp Days, Chat Nights plan would be best for this type of user. Correct?

What are the gotchas? Any suggestions?

Re-Boost fee charged when wireless web was down

Well, I must say I am very disappoint with Boost and how they do the "Re-Boost". I have had problems with my text messaging since day one, when I switched to the "premium" plan it got even worst. I was on hold or bounced between Sprint/Nextel agents who kept sending me into a que and left there. Finally today I get through, my cedit card was "re-boosted" for $15, well on the premium plan that will only happen when you reach less than $5.01, well with all the calls I made complaining about my text messaging not working, an agent took it on their own to CANCEL my plan, there re-activate it without even telling me. So I am using my phone as usual I get a text message (all of a sudden it works go figure)"Thanks for you $15 Re-Boost your account ...

MMS issues

I am in need of some help explaining an error message that lot's of our new i450 customers are getting...
We obviously have not had the necessary training to help resolve and it may actually be a solution only our Wireless Web support team can offer but I would still appreciate a little knowledge on the subject.

The error message is : " Real Time Authorization Failure"

This occurs when they attempt to open up a new MMS message.

Thanks, Jess

Automatic Reboost Question

I understand how the "auto reboost" works but what if your account hit's the 90 days (when you need to re-boost to keep your account active) and you still have money on your account. Will it reboost automatically at the 90 days or will it drop to 0 and then reboost you loosing the time you had before the 90 marker hit. Just wanted clarification on this.

Thanks,
Scott

Openwave Browser on Boost Phones

Is there a way to bookmark sites in the browser?
I know I have been able to in other Motorola Phones from other providers Northcoast PCS, Sprint, Cingular, T-Mobile, and Verizon (used to work for Verizon) But I can't seem to be able to find a way in my i415 even downloaded the more in depth pdf manual.

Wireless Web

I'm wondering if someone here can clear up something for me. I have seen the Boost Mobile Wireless Web described as offering "unlimited Web access" and also as offering "unlimited Internet access". I take Web access to mean that they block all of the non Web ports, whereas I take Internet access to mean that no ports are blocked. Which is correct? To put it another way, does Boost Mobile block any ports when accessing the Wireless Web?

Thanks,
Brent

i450 question

Still lovin' my i450 but it does do one WEIRD thing -- it causes noise on my (external) PC speakers! When I power it up, it thinks for a while and then does the 'blinking arrow under the globe' thing (checking for new email?). When it's doing this, I hear fairly loud static on my PC speakers.

And it's not just my home speakers -- it did it to a friends' speakers at work.

Any clues? Anyone else seen this? Is it a bad phone?

Thanks!

Hey -- I took the plunge, love my i450 so far. Now if I can just convince all the people calling for the business that used to own this number NOT TO... :-)

Question: I've email'd myself a picture, it's on the phone in "My Pictures", it looks great-n-all, but HOW do I get it to be my wallpaper? It's a 130x130 jpg.

Thanks!

Boost Sim from Ebay (Stolen)

I just bought a 32k sim from Ebay and received it yesterday. I picked up a $20 re-boost card for activation, called to activate and they said it was stolen!!!
They said I need the pin number for the account. I emailed the seller but I don't think I will hear back or he won't have the pin.

What can I do???

Thanks,
Scott
