Hi i'm new to this. I just purchase a blackberry curve 8350i from ebay locked i believe. I will be receiving it in a few days. Now I also purchased a boostmobile starter kit for $20. I also want to xfer my existing phone number from my cricket service i have now. What are the proper step i should take to complete my existing phone # and to install my boostmobile sim card installed into my blackberry?? Don i have all the necessary items?
If this is the plan you are considering, it is not very well suited for use with a BlackBerry.
I have searched Boost Mobiles site, they do not appear to offer BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS). That means you will not be able to use Email, Instant Messenger or most third party applications that require data.
It will will work for voice and messaging, but you will likley need to be in a Wifi Hotspot to use the Internet Browser.
BB will not work without internet if i'm not mistaken
Sure it will; voice and SMS only, though. I found out from AT&T this last weekend that MMS uses the data transport but doesn't incur data charges. So, yeah, without a data plan you can still talk and SMS on a BB.
But what i'm asking is how to go about the proper steps to setup the boostmobile sim card i purchased into the blackberry 8350i with xfering the phone # i have with cricket. When you register the sim card, do they ask for the Phone ID#? Because if they do if i give them the blackberry id# they may not do it. is this true? how do i get around this problem or am i wrong, they will not ask for a phone id#?
