    iDEN going away, what to do with new in box Boost unused phones?

    Hi all,

    So, they're doing away with Iden I think at the end of this month or July 1st. I have a phone I'm using pay as you go. I also purchased 4 extra Iden phones for emergencies/replacements/whatever as they were on sale at a good price. I still have them, new in the box. Boost msgs say you can get a new phone from them or $100 credit towards a new phone. What to do? Call Boost about it and tell them I have these phones and now I can't use them or?

    Thanks!

    Short way to describe it is it's the Boost phones that use a sim card & some or all have Push To Talk aka chirp.

    There may be other markets in the world that use these phones? Don't know.
    You might be able to sell them on eBay or amazon or something.

    Other than selling them in ebay o amazin like already sujested nope nothing you can do with them as far as boost goes. The $100 discount cannonly be used on an existing iden line so unless all those are active on iden lines your out of luck...
