    I guess I could go back and read the older posts on this topic however Ill post one also. Long story. My sister in Law sold me her sprint BB 8330 (CDMA) for a great price I must ad. I have boost (iden) I do not want to buy a bb 8330 from boost for 249.00. 9I tried to have boost set me up a CDMA account and they did but the phone did not work. I have not unlocked or altered the phone in any way. Just wanted to try it dry. No problem migrating to CDMA or porting my number. Long story short I had to get them to port back to iden and back to old cruddy phone and a day to receive text messages.

    I am aware that sprint/Nextel is Boost. I am aware that boost uses sprints cdma network.

    My question is how can I get my sprint 8330 to work on the boost unlimited cdma plan.

    I hear it is possible but that will cost me 160.00. The only road block I have run into is getting the phone to work.

    Any suggestions?

    You would probably need to get it flashed. Try looking on craigslist to see if any local shop offer the service.

    Well for a phone to be unlockable it has to have a SIM card slot which the 8330 doesn't. Flashing loads software that will enable the device to work on a specified network.

    Oh. Thank you. Do you know if a sprint cdma phone would need to be flashed to run on the boost cdma network?. I had heard that they are the same network....
