Re: HTC ONE A9 Coming To Boost Mobile??

The Sprint network, where Boost runs, uses 800, 1900 and 2500. 1800 is a GSM band so while it is supported in the phone, it's not going to give you any signal because Sprint doesn't use it.

 

Network

  • Sprint:CDMA / 4G LTE (Tri-band)
  • International:GSM/UMTS/CDMA Networks (Removable SIM card)
  • Frequency:
    • Network: LTE Band 800 MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz (Tri-band)
    • CDMA 1x/EVDO Rev A, 800/1900 MHz
      • Sprint network and device combination does notsupport talking and surfing the Web at the same time unless also connected to Wi-Fi.
    • International-capable:Yes, GSM/UMTS/CDMA Networks.
      • This phone can be used when roaming off the Sprint Network.
      • International GSM Quad-band: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

So my question is if we own the phone we pretty much are not going to be able to use it unless we're on wi-fi?

No that's not the case at all.  If the device is eligible for activation on Boost you should get signal on the frequencies that Boost mobile uses (800, 1900 and 2500), which I listed above.

 

An HTC A9 that was previously active on another network or factory unlocked isn't compatible straight out of the box with Boost Mobile.  You might be able to get help from a Boost mobile store location but there are also some tutorials online about it, just Google.  Unfortunately, that isn't something that we can provide instructions to do here on Community.

Re: HTC ONE A9 Coming To Boost Mobile??

My own opinion (we all know about opinions, right?) is that this phone is junk, however, don't know if it could be boost network as well. I am subscribed to unlimited for 2 lines, auto pay and all that, I would think boost would want to take care of their paying customers, but, sadly, this doesn't appear to be the case. I live in an LTE area, but must continually lock my phone to CDMA only, then, many times I'm still just flat cut off.
I purchased this one a9 brand new, it started with main cam bad right out of the box, and the warranty had about as well be used for toilet paper, that's about all I've gotten from both boost and HTC. They continually tell me we'll get it straightened out, but in the end it's been 'try this, try that,' but no solution. I'm the one that got burned on a brand new phone supposed to sprint, compatible with boost, but the more time goes by, I don't believe it's compatible with anything. I've been limping thru with a phone that doesn't work for a year now, it was all the cash I had to buy this one. BUT, the warranty isn't even worth the paper it was written on....you can do whatever you want to do tho......
