how to switch phones on boost mobile account


To switch phones on your Boost Mobile account, you’ll need to have your account number and phone PIN. If you don’t have these, you can find them by logging in to your account on the Boost Mobile website or by calling customer service.

Once you have those, follow these steps:

  1. Turn off your old phone and remove the battery if possible.
  2. Insert the new phone’s battery if possible.
  3. Hold down the power button until the “Boost Mobile” logo appears on the screen.
  4. Once you see the logo, release the power button and quickly hold down the volume up button until you see an “emergency dialer” screen.

Can I take my SIM card out of my Boost phone and put it in another Boost phone?

Answer: Yes you can. If you have an iPhone, your SIM card is located in the upper-left corner of the phone. To remove the SIM card, use a SIM ejector tool or a paperclip to push the small hole in the SIM tray and pull out the card.

If you have an Android phone, your SIM card will be located on the back of the phone, under the battery. Gently remove the battery and slide out the old SIM card. Slide in a new one and replace the battery.

How do I activate my Boost phone with the same number?


If you’re looking to activate your Boost phone with the same phone number, there are a few things you’ll need to do. First, make sure that your current service provider supports transferring your phone number to Boost Mobile. Once you’ve confirmed this, call your current service provider and request that they start the process of transferring your phone number to Boost Mobile.

They will likely require some information from you, such as your Boost account number and PIN. Once they have all of the necessary information, they should be able to initiate the transfer and port your phone number over to Boost Mobile service. You can expect the entire process to take a few days for everything to be completed.

    Once you have all of this information, you can activate your phone by following these steps:
