    Is it possible to flash this thunderbolt to Boost Mobile? I have a epic 4G and I flashed it from Sprint to boost by using a donor phone. If anyone has tried or knows how, please share.

    any phone operating on the same cdma frequencies should in theory be able to be flashed to that network. its just a matter of knowing how to use the various cdma tools to change the correct settings.

    you wont see it discussed here alot,as cloning a donor phone is a potentially illegal act,if one of the phones had a bad esn due to theft or non payment,and/or if youre attempting to make 2 of the same device to steal service :eek:

    having said that,i think there is a guide here to flash the OG evo to boost... maybe it would be of some help. :)

    Yes, I have cdma workshop and a few other tools plus a couple donor phones (I bought the phones and have reciepts). I will see what happens

    best bet would be to check with your carrier. if its a cdma service,maybe they can flash it for you. :)

    I think the whole 4g sim card for the phone is making this a problem :-( I can't seem to get the "incognito" files to push... If I get this to work I'll write a (how to) guide.
