    Default Having probles getting phone calls on my blackberry style from boost in the nyc area

    Hello

    I just got my first blackberry style 9670 smart phone less then 2 Weeks ago and I am using boost mobile for service.

    I live in the nyc area and i sometimes when i get a phone call my blackberry does not ring

    I have all the ringtones on high and I was told by boost customer service there is a outage in the nyc area.

    Now I wanted to know if anyone else in the nyc area has this phone or any other boost phone and is having the same problems ?

    I have a sim card boost phone and i dont have a problem with that phone ringing

    I am on my second boost blackberry in a weeks time

    Since i was able to get ahold of the master resller for boost and after talking with a sales men on the phone i was able to get another handset

    I though that would take care of the problem thinking the first phone had a bug and the problem would be fixed

    I was wrong

    But now the newest phone sometimes does not ring when a call is made to it

    This is driving me crazy and I just wanted to know if anyone else in the NYC area has this same phone and is having the same problems.

    Again my phone sometimes rings when a call is coming in and sometimes it does not ring.

    Does anyone think this is a problem with the cell tower as i was told over the phone by boost ?

    I have strong cell coverage where i live and most times have all 4 bars

    I also had a issue with the web and not getting e-mails and the info on the hand set was 1xev in lower case letters.

    But i took the battery out and now i get e-mails and can use the web browser and the letter are in upper case 1XVE and now i can use the web and get e-mails

    Can some one please tell me if there having the same problem with the blackberry style 9670 from boost in nyc ?

    Sorry for the long post

    Hope your problem is fixed by now but wanted to offer a correction. Boost runs on the old Nextel Network which is iDen technology. Boost is a Sprint company but the towers used are not CDMA. That is reserved for only Sprint customers. Boost is a good service but doesn't have coverage like CDMA.
