Nationwide Sprint Network. This tool provides high-level estimates of our wireless
coverage. Coverage is not available everywhere and varies based on a number of factors. Our
coverage maps provide high level estimates of our coverage areas when using
your device outdoors under optimal conditions. Coverage isn't available everywhere. Estimating
wireless coverage and signal strength is not an exact science. There are gaps in coverage within
our estimated coverage areas that, along with other factors
both within and beyond our control (network problems, software, signal strength, your wireless
device, structures, buildings, weather, geography, topography, etc.), will result in dropped and
blocked connections, slower data speeds, or otherwise
impact the quality of services. Services that rely on location information, such as E911 depend
on your device's ability to acquire satellite signals (typically not available indoors) and
network coverage. E911 services also depend local emergency
service provider systems/support. Estimated future coverage subject to change.
Yes, you'll need to purchase a new SIM card when you Bring Your Own Phone from a non-Boost Mobile wireless provider. Your new Boost Mobile SIM card will allow you to use the Boost Mobile network.
A SIM (Subscriber Identification Module) card is a specially programmed microchip that stores network identification data only. No personal information is stored in these SIMs. It identifies the user to the network.
In order to activate your phone, you will need both a Boost Mobile SIM card and the phone’s IMEI number.
Find your phone’s IMEI or MEID (DEC) number by opening up the phone dial pad and pressing *#06# If this does not work, then you can look under the battery (phones with removable batteries only) or in the phone’s settings menu.
The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is a 15-digit serial number that identifies your wireless phone. It is important to have the correct IMEI number for your phone registered with Boost Mobile to ensure that your phone can be activated on the Boost Mobile network.
Your old carrier will have to domestically unlock your phone before you can bring it to Boost Mobile. Please contact the previous carrier to unlock the phone.
Sometimes if the phone is locked it may still be under financial obligation from the previous carrier. If you need to resolve the financial obligation, please contact the previous carrier to resolve.

A domestic SIM unlock allows you to insert the Boost Mobile SIM card into your phone and attempt to activate it on the Boost Mobile network. Unlocking your phone will not necessarily make it interoperable with the Boost Mobile network. In other words, a phone designed for one network is not compatible with another network merely by unlocking it. Additionally, unlocking a phone may enable some functionality of the phone but not all (e.g. an unlocked phone may support voice services but data services may not work or may be limited when activated on the Boost Mobile network).
Visit a Boost Mobile store or boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone to check your phone’s compatibility.

Features and network experience may vary based on device and/or original phone carrier.
Not all plan services or device features may be available including International Roaming, Mobile Hotspot, MMS (multi-media text messages), some browsers, some Boost Mobile products, or eCare (native account management applications).
For Apple phones domestic roaming may not be available.
A phone designed for one network is not compatible with another network merely by unlocking it as there are other checks that would block it from being compatible (such as if the phone was previously reported lost or stolen). Due to this limitation, some phones aren't compatible.
Please use caution when purchasing a used phone from an unknown source as there is no guarantee that it is unlocked or not lost/stolen. Locked or previously lost/stolen phones are not compatible for this program.
