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.

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?

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?

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???

Busy Signals/Connectivity problems-Help me Jess!

I purchased a Motorola i205 and Boost service in June Circle Cellular (local "authorized" Nextel/Boost rep). I am experiencing connectivity problems. Folks that are trying to reach me receive a busy signal and I have trouble calling out (re-dialing). This happens mostly in the evenings. I have spent many hours on the phone with customer care and several trips to a Nextel service center as well as calling Motorola. Most recently last night on the phone with customer care. They (customer care) are now telling me that the problem is with the services that are trying to call my phone, not with Boost! I can't buy that. No one seems to want to take ownership of this problem. Now I see that the i205 is discontinued and wonder why I was sol...
