I bought a i285 boost phone to use on nextel. It was locked of course. I tried the reboot procedure and all and couldn't get it unlocked. I had to go thru a lot of c*ap with getting software to do and buy serial cable. Cost more than the phone but it works fine. I got it for my wife and she 'LOVES' it... until now the battery goes dead too fast. It wasn't brand new, but I also happen to have 5404 slim battery (for nextel) that fits fine but says invalid battery when you try to charge it. I put it an old i60 or one of the i700 phones we have and it works and charges. It will power and run the i285 just not charge. Weird. The i285 seems to not have a great battery life with that one either though.

What to do???
