Why do I keep getting a message about Activating on my phone?

By purchasing a Boost Mobile handset, you agree to activate the handset on a current Boost Mobile plan within 60 days of your purchase date. The message that you’re receiving on your handset is a reminder to activate your phone. Once you activate, the message will no longer appear on your handset.


What if I don’t want to activate on a Boost Mobile plan?

Our terms and conditions require activation on a Boost Mobile plan within 60 days of the purchase date. If you do not activate, you will continue to receive the daily activation messages on your handset until you activate it on a Boost Mobile Plan. If you do not intend to activate on a Boost Mobile plan AND you are still within the Return Policy window, you can return your handset back to the place of purchase for a refund. If you chose to activate on your handset at a later date, please visit


Why wasn’t I advised that I needed to activate the device on an account when I purchased it?

These terms and conditions were available at the time you purchased the device; specifically, the 60-day activation policy is stated on the device packaging. Our current terms and conditions are also available on at the following URL


I no longer want to receive these messages on my handset, can you add me to your Do Not Contact List?

In order to be added to the Do Not Contact List, we would need contact information that is tied to an account on your handset. Because you have not yet activated a Boost Mobile plan on your handset you do not have an account set up on this device, and there is not a phone number or email address tied to that handset; without either of those pieces of information, we do not have the ability to add you to the Do Not Contact List. However, once you activate your handset, those messages will no longer appear.
