"Now to address your other muscle flexing...Direct talk is not a free service and all the talk about "code plugs" aside we do not support that option with Boostmobile! There are a few Nextel handsets with the feature on it and I believe it requires a special biliing code to allow you the pleasure of using this feature and Nextel offers it for for the i325 and I believe the i930. But perhaps in the future...
"unlocking" the feature remotely for the voice record ...what the hell are you talking about? These features are availible as an application that you purchase from our web site...if you mean that when they purchase the application and download it to the handset it works, then you are correct, but I get frustrated with terms like locking and unlocking!!!
You can also purchase the Speakerphone application for the i215 and i205 for 20.00 at"

Again misinformation. There is NO special billing code in order to use Direct Talk. On all of the current phone releases, sans the 930, the direct talk is enabled, EXCEPT on boost mobile branded phones. The direct talk feature is encoded into the phones firmware and can be enabled or disabled via the codeplug. I myself HAVE enabled the Boost Mobile i450, i415 and the new i855 with the direct talk feature and it worked flawlessly. No special billing needed. Much like the i205 and the i215 there is an area in the code plug to enable or disable their features. No magic to it. Of the current Boost line up only the 835, 833, 285 and 730 do not support the Direct talk feature.
