    Alright, so I recently purchased the droid and I am looking to put in on Boost CDMA for their unlimited plan.

    I can pull the PRL off of a boost phone that I am using right now (I think) and have an esn of an old boost phone can I can use for a switch so it is recognized in the database. I own both phones so I don't see any issue with this.

    My question is; is rooting the phone necessary for this to work. I would think so, but I am not sure. I have seen people flash the droid over to cricket, virgin, page plus, metro pcs, so why not boost mobile?

    I am just looking for some feedback from people more knowledgeable than me. This is my first android phone, so I am quite ignorant in all things android. I flashed an HTC TP2 over to boost, so I am hoping I can do the same with the droid.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can offer!

    I am going to delete the other one, I figured this would be a better spot for it. Boost is owned by Sprint/Nextel, they offer both iDen and CDMA phones. The CDMA runs off of sprints 3g/4g towers so it is by far (as far as I know) the best prepay CDMA option.

    Thats what we are trying to figure out. I would assume you would need to change the esn for boost/sprint. Cricket and other providers are a little more liberal with their allowance of non-branded phones. Hopefully, someone can shed some light on this topic.

    It can be, I just am not too sure how to do it. You can use software like CDMA Workshop.

    It will work, its just a matter of getting the correct driver and knowing the prl. Because of the nature of sprint/boost activation, and ESN change will be necessary. Addtionally, it looks like you will have to root your droid as well.

    Right here! :p

    When I told you the last time that this was illegal and that Android Forums does not condone it, I was serious. Should this happen again, you will be banned.
