Question fer Jess

I currently have the i90c and am very satisfied with it and with Boost Mobile. However, i'd like to upgrade to the newer i560. Can i carry my old number to a 64 sim that i also have, and use it on this newer phone?

Yes Big can!

Just get the new handset and give us a call with your Boost SIM card # and we can do what is called a SIM Swap...
This is the first contact with an i560 I will have so sell me on it...why are you choosing this specific handset? I am concerned that some of the higher end features that come with that handset are not supported by Boost, we don't offer group DC, or call waiting, nor the Direct Talk feature...this seems to be the next logical step up from the i530 spun with a little more style....Please let me know where and how I can get one, Pappa...
Thanks, Jess

Hey Jess. I'm not overly concerned with some of the i560's highend features, as long as i can still PTT to my kids. In fact, it was my kids that turned me on to Boost Mobile in the first place. My son has the i530 and my Daughter runs the i730, anyways. I really like the newer spinoff from the 530, with the color screen and outside window, and still retain it's rugged looks. I'll keep you posted on this asap on getting this phone, but e-bay has them for 2 bills+ w/wo sims, if they're not available in my area.

Not a bad price considering the quality, unfortunately my experience with E-bay is spotty at best...I spent a lot of time last night reviewing that handset, love it!
I'm encouraged that I am seeing a lot of newer handsets being activated with Boost SIM's, it will spur nextel/boost to respect our customers commitment to quality equipment.
The DC feature sure is the way to go, I have always felt that the only trick was to get the general public experience it and we are onour way.
Poppa, let me know what's up...if there is anything I can do, let me know...Jess
