    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! :rolleyes:

    you would certainly have to be rooted for this to work. I have no experience in trying this though or even what it would take to try it. I remember reading in the past though that people who flashed cricket had less than normal functionality.

    Is there a "beginners guide" to flashing? Does anyone know how to change the prl of the droid?

    might have better luck asking for advice on howardforums.com

    This is not a topic I have seen discussed here much at all.

    As jungajuice said, changing an ESN on a phone is illegal and is considered fraud.

    Android Forums does not condone illegal activity!
