Thanks, the problem cleared a couple hours later that morning with no action on my part. Maybe there was some kind maintenance going on ? I don't know. But all is well since then. Could use a stronger signal in Arlington, Va though.

Have the same problem.They sold me a phone that couldn't connect to the internet. Tried to return the phone after a week of having it and they told me all sales are final. Been a Boost Mobile customer for over 6 years. Tried everything to fix the phone, customer service said was a issue with the phone and need to sent it to the manufacturer. Have 2 days left on my service and changing phone companies

Good day @Jeffg808 Thank you for reaching out to us, and apologize for the inconvenience. Did you purchase the device at a Boost Mobile store?
