    Unlocked Boost Mobile Phone & Nextel Plan Sim Card

    I have a OEM i730 w/ my Nextel Plan sim card. Today I received almost new i730 Unlocked Boost Mobile Pearl Case/Modded phone only 20 usage i730T/i730B . and my neighbor said if nextel finds out or boost finds out that I'm using a plan sim card on that phone that they'll burn my chip? is it true or its fine to use your sim card on the unlocked moble or is it illegal?

    I hate it when people give out lies like that. They sound like customer service when you call nextel and ask them if you can put your i95 sim in your i730. "No, this will cause your phone to burn"
    Boost mobile = worst thing for nextel customers!

    Since ur a newbie I understand why u dont know.

    Unlocked means the Boost Phone has been hacked so it can be used with either Boost(PrePaid) Simcard or NextelPlan.
    I have 2 Unlocked 730s Phones I bought, and 1 regular 730 from nextel and I use my sim card on all 3 of them.

    And Rob, being on here for a year and a half, you should already know the answer to this.

    Ok, I know I am going to sound so stupid for posting this but I really don't understand all this. I have a whole box of nextel phones that we have upgraded from. How do I get them "unlocked" so we can use them with boost. My nextel bill is so high I don't want to add anymore phones to it not to mention the stupid contract you will be locked into. Please don't burn me and explain in detail so maybe I can understand and not post such stupid questions anymore. I am so glad I found this site it has helped me so much.

    I'm pretty sure that you can just get a Boost SIM and use it in your old Nextel phone. You just have to make sure the new sim coordinates with the phone, if you have an i90 for example, you need a 32k SIM, if you have an i730 you need a 64k SIM in order to use all the phones features. Just activate the Boost SIM and you should be good to go.

    A very bid thank you to Johnny and Bam for your quick and detailed response. One more question. Since I have many different nextel model phones where do I find out which sim card each would require? Again thanks
