    just get a new starter kit and pop ur own sim into it, unless your friend is willing to give u the account info and passcode for that sim.

    yeah, the starter kit includes the boost 64k sim and $10 credit to your boost account when activating it. then customer care will provide you with your mobile number and direct connect number

    Boost SIM only starter kits also available on ebay. Also, if you can get the PIN ftom the previous owner, I seem to remeber seeing the phone #, DC #, etc list under "account info" while accessing boost web on the phone.

    I found Sarter Kits here and they have 150 minutes.
    I buy phones for no reason.
