Greetings everyone, my first time posting in the boost section. Just have a few questions..

Their service here is non existent, seriously.. sometimes my phone can't even display the time up here(?!).

And finally ...Yes, we will be happy to change your # when and if you stay or go...sometimes the Market transfer can take up to 2-3 days but you won't lose service till the last minute and when you call us from a landline we walk you through a Master Reset, give you your new cell # and Alert Number...finito ! careful with your pu...
