Converting a Note 3 from sprint

Hey guys and glad I found this forum.

 

 

Been a boost customer for years and years..

 

Long story short, I want a note and the note 3 appears to be the only note supported by boost mobile (You get what I'm saying). 

 

So If I we're to get one used (I have boost mobile sim card in my other phone), can I switch the sim card into the Note, and be good? ***What's important is, I need to make sure I have hotspot, so if you have experience with this, Please share! 

 

If you've had luck getting a different note on boost network, Let me know,

Hi there Jwood4290. The Note 3 from Sprint is compatible to be used with Boost Mobile. Once you have the compatible phone, you would need a new compatible sim card for the Note3 available at your nearest Boost store. Once you have your compatible phone and sim card, you could contact us through here and we will complete the changes for you, or you may complete the process on your online account. Victor21

Hey victor, the vendor managed to send me the MEID number, is there anything I could do with that?  such as check if it's clean? 

 

and even though I own a ZTE warp elite (Boost mobile phone, boost network), I won't be able to use the same sim card, is that accurate? Thanks.

To mention, I get an error when putting the MEID number in.  However, I did check it through websites (THE meid number) and it comes back clean.

When it comes to Sprint phones, the system will not recognize them as Bring Your Own devices. That may be the reason why you're getting an error message.

So regardless, I have to get it activated at a boost store?
