I want to port over my Nexus 6 from Sprint

I bought a phone from Sprint two years ago--paid in full. Google shipped it from their factory. I've tried my IMEI with your system--to no avail.
Question:
             I really can't use my Sprint Nexus 6 phone with Boost?
I would love to switch. Every Boost retailer has different answers regarding this and most retailers want you to buy their phone.
Also, I've tried my friend's Tmobile sim card in my phone and it works fine and clear--regarding calls.

I've included the surrounding APNs (Access Point Networks) from my phone.15826798_10154284862147549_441278533184651745_n.jpg15822629_10154284862412549_3675741831750707952_n.jpg15822892_10154284862692549_6204583783050260788_n.jpg15780816_10154284862817549_659555470542887512_n.jpg

Re: I want to port over my Nexus 6 from Sprint

Hi,
Cool you want to come to Boost! Your device is capable of seeing Boost cell tower signals. Sorry for my late reply, I've unexpectedly had extra hours at the workplace.

The offical answer from Boost Mobile is that No, the Moto Nexus 6 Sprint is not on the list of supported devices and Boost Mobile only supports A)a Boost Branded Phone , B) a Sprint Phone on Use a Sprint Phone on Boost list https://www.boostmobile.com/#!/support/faq/phones-devices/activate-a-sprint-phone/ or C) a phone on the Bring your own device list (which lists iPhones and the SGS7) https://www.boostmobile.com/#!/support/faq/phones-devices/bring-your-device/

Now, I don't want to confuse you but, that being said, that the offical answer is No, it may be possible as I personally know people that have gotten their Nexus devices and some other Samsung phones not on the list to work with Boost Mobile.

You must get Boost to add your IMEI/ESN to their list of allowed devices for activation, thus is why the web site keeps rejecting yours. You will need to go to a store to do this. Only one person I know was successful by calling customer care. The process is called a re-SKU. You mist as for a re SKu or they don't know where to begin to help. Be sure to call stores in your area asking if they ever transferred a Sprint phone to Boost, when I called it took me three stores before I found one that was familiar with the process. The store will charge you, like $5 for helping you, and Boost charges $10 for activation.

Do you have a Sprint SIM? Yes, Good. If No, you must find a store that has one, not all stores carry SIM cards on hand.

When you get the device(for Sprint branded ones) re-sku ed the APNs should come across automatically. But, here are my APNs, from my Sprint Note 4, that I use with Boost service, in XML format.

Hi @dracer,
While not officially supported it may be possible.
Do you have the Nexus 6 Shamu Moto XT1103 or the Nexus 6P Angler Hauwei H1512/H1511?

Is the iPhone SE eligible to port over to Boost?
