Re: Sprint Htc Touch Pro To Boost???????

Boost uses a different technology, specifically iDEN.

The Sprint Touch Pro is CDMA. Although Sprint has both iDEN and CDMA networks, if the device doesn't have the radios on its chipset for it, it won't work on that network.

Re: Sprint Htc Touch Pro To Boost???????

boost mobile actually released some cdma phones and has an existing cdma program.
http://www.boostmobile.com/activation/ its the UNLTD program for like three phone models using sprint towers
Edit: as far as getting it to work probably not via legal means, and you wouldn't have evdo

Re: Sprint Htc Touch Pro To Boost???????

Here's a recap of the steps that I found on howardforums.com:

1. Obtain a Boost CDMA phone - MUST BE CDMA - NOT iDEN!!!
2. Activate the Boost CDMA phone
3. Switch to $50 everything plan
4. Wait at least 1 week
5. Call Boost and tell them you need to swap phones because your phone is not working, is broken, lost, what have you
6. Give them the ESN for your TP
7. Pray/Sacrifice Goats in hopes that the rep will activate the phone
8. The rep should walk you through reprogramming the phone for Boost which is more or less the same as reporgramming for Sprint

Apparently people have gotten this to work with the Mogul, Centro, and a few other phones. Rumor has it that some people have gotten TP's to work.

I wouldn't call this illegal...but it is definitely abusing a loophole in the system.

Re: Sprint Htc Touch Pro To Boost???????

I was looking around and found this on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8Y1qj9kfGU&NR=1
They claim to have the capability to flash your phone for boost mobile service.
Please let me know if this helps and you go this route, I am interested as well.
Thx.

Re: Sprint Htc Touch Pro To Boost???????

i also have a Sprint Touch Pro on Boost (have for the past year)and no flashing is needed. I even use many of the custom ROMS made for Sprint. Boost is basiclly Sprint without the B.S. it runs on Sprint's network and u can use most Sprint phones. the phone MUST HAVE a CLEAN ESN or it will not activate.any questions pm me
