So out of the blue my phone freezes.
If the SIM card is in the phone will get all the way to the main screen. From there it just freezes. Doesn't respond to anything.
With the SIM out all the keys still work.

Also when you try to shut it off, with the SIM card it freezes are "Powering down".

This really ticks me off since I paid $100 for it and I can't afford a new unit.

Roaming Icon???

I have the Nextel I856 and looking to download the ROAMING ICON that appears when you leave your home area. I know that Nextel does not have roaming, but when you leave your home area this icon will appear the icon looks like this ^ . I've had this added on all my previous Nextel. The sales person had no idea what I was talking about. Please help.

Truly Threaded Text Messages?

I've been DYING for a phone from Boost with truly threaded text messages. The Debut seems to be the only one listed on PhoneScoop that indicates this phone has "threaded" text messaging. It was kind of typed in there, looking a little like an afterthought... This is literally the selling point for me.

Does this phone have truly threaded text messages? "Chat" style? "IM" style?
