Arrow SIM unlock code for Boost mobile

Hi all,
I recently bought a boost mobile and found out that it needs a unlock code to work for a different SIM card. Does anyone know the code and could pass it on, itll be very helpful.

Thanks

I didn't realize that any Boost Mobile phones had Sims. I thought all Boost phones were CDMA

They are CDMA but HTC phones (and others) have SIM cards also becuse they are world phones and can do both CDMA and GSM. I assume this is what he is talking about. It is a little more complicated then just unlocking the SIM. I assume (assume) the current phones were like my old Touch Pro 2. To make that phone use GSM you have to security unlock it and then flash the GSM radio. Otherwise the phone could not "see" US GSM providers. Now the SIM/GSM radio is unlocked for use outside the US. You can use them over seas just by putting in an active European or what ever SIM card. My suggestion is to do a serious google search and see what you can find. But i have a suspicion it is more complicated then just typing in a code to unlock the phone for US based GSM providers. At least for my TP2 it was a fairly complicated process.

Now if i am wrong and all you want is the MSL (master subsidy lock) code you can find it many different ways. The easiest way, if you just happened to print the instructions you were give over the internet when you activated your phone with Boost, it gave you the phone number, MSID and MSL #s. If you do not have this then you can search on the net for one of the other ways to find your MSL code. This is different then SIM unlock code. If you are lucky it may be as simple as getting an app off the store but may be as complicated as having to use a terminal eliminator to search for it on the phone. good luck

Here is a site that will show you how to do it for a fee... If you find anything out let us know. maybe somebody else is thinking about doing this. Good luck

I bought the Boost Jump Smart last week for $A39 (Australia Post still has them advertised for $A39 in latest catalogue)

It is a ZTE T760 locked to the Telstra network

I googled a large number of sites and finally realised that I would have to pay for an unlock.

The first one I tried was Code-Unlocking.com for about $A6 - failed - money refunded
the next was Unlock.io for around $A14 - failed - money refunded
finally OneUnlock.com at around $A17.50 - this one worked.

You need to insert another SIM card and start up.

You will boot into the unlock section. Simply enter the unlock code and push OK.

Apparently you get 10 chances at unlocking before you brick you phone.

BTW has anyone found a way to root these beasts?

I have tried Unlock Root, On Click Root, SRSRoot for Android and many more as well as many adb methods.

Can anyone help with ideas sources, etc?

I'm going to assume you're on the other Boost Network...the one not in the United States. If that's the case, then I'm not sure if anyone here can help, most of the people that look at the Boost section are from the states. Maybe a mod can direct you to a more resourceful area of the forum.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, the ZTE T2760 I am referring to is an Australian version.

However the unlocking site should be universal as you have to provide details of your phone, service provider, etc.

Apologies!

I was refering to and Australian ZTE T760.

Nonetheless, the paid unlocking site has been shown to work with the ZTE and should be universal as you have to supply phone details, country, service provider etc. to get the unlock code.

Thanks for the update. Even though it does not apply to Boost Mobile (Sprint) it still may help somebody who finds this thread via Google.

I wonder though...if i remember correctly CDMA is still somewhat popular in Australia. If i remember what i have read, some of the less populated areas are still using 1900mHz CDMA for cell service...

I have little experience with mobile phones but I recall the CDMA network closed down in Australia in 2008 or 2009.
