Hello Patcha! SIM unlocking a device will not necessarily make a device interoperable with another carrier's network. Additionally, SIM unlocking a device may enable some functionality of the device but not all (e.g., a SIM unlocked device may support voice services but not data services when activated on a different network). NOTE: Not all devices are capable of having the SIM slot unlocked. Boost Mobile will only activate devices certified to work with Boost Mobile services. Boost Mobile cannot unlock phones from other carriers.
Boost Mobile will assist with unlocking a device under the following circumstances:
The device has not been reported as lost or stolen or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked
The device has been active on the associated account for at least 12 months with the account active at that time
If you believe you meet the above requirements and would like to request that your DSU-capable device be unlocked, contact Boost Mobile Customer Care by dialing 1-888-BOOST-4U.
