Research In Motion BlackBerry Curve 8350i


Aug 16, 2009, 9:14 PM
Can the Research In Motion BlackBerry Curve 8350i (for NEXTEL) be used on BOOST Mobile ??

Nope, you can not use the i920, i930, 7100i or the 8350i (actually no smartphone at all) on Boost mobile. The text messaging and data are ran through a different part of the network that boost can not utilize. There are some people that claim they can have the phones modified in the 'hood' to cheat the system but I havn't seen one yet. The best bet is to get the new clutch i465 if you want a keyboard phone on Boost. That is why boost is so cheap, you get less features, phone options, phone quality and no insurance.

i recently purchased an 8350i from ebay and it is still active to a boost account, all i have is the imei number and dont know how to deactivate it so i can activate it to my nextell carrier! can you help?

You'll need to call Boost with access to the account it is currently active on, and ask them to remove it.

If you don't have that account's information, contact the seller.

If you don't have their information, eBay may have gotten you.

so tell me skywalker, how is that unlimited plan working out for you?? because you can only talk on the 8350 with boost... if you want to use a phone of that caliber sign a damn contract and get on the right plan for the phone. if you cant afford it Laughing then you should not have it, its that simple...

As a person that works at a cell phone store and work with boost i know for a fact that you can get talk text and web with your Nextel blackberry 8350i working with boost you just have to change some setting on the phone for it to work. if you don't have it already you would have to Download and install the Blackberry Desktop Software. https://www.blackberry.com/download
