Doubt this will help anyone if we are all experiencing an outage of data. 

This is for our LG Stylo 3's, but it should be the similar to any boost phone. if not here is the link:

Hey there, @Aiyanfree90 @Emmy2243 @Phenomenal_21!


So sorry to know you have been experiencing inconveniences with the service. Have you tried resetting the network settings? If not, please try these steps:



1. Turn Wi-Fi off and Mobile Data on - Settings > Wi-Fi > Off - Settings > Data Usage > Mobile Data > On
2. From the dial pad enter ##72786# (press "ok" when prompted. For HTC devices, press MENU>RESET)
3. The cellphone is going to update the Profile and the PRL and reboot automatically. That should take about 3 minutes, and then calls and data services should work.



1. Tap Phone > Tap Key Pad.
2. Type ##UPDATE# (##873283#).
3. Phone will process updates. Then Tap OK.
4. When Service Update is complete, tap OK.
