Unfortunately, numbers are no longer deleted or taken out of circulation when accounts are deactivated. There are simply not enough phone numbers available to issue a new one for every new line created. When a line is deactivated either by request or financial cancellation, the number typically will be in a sort of holding tank, in case the previous owner opts to restart his or her service and reclaim it. If I recall, that period was about 90 days,
I say typically because at certain times, numbers can be released again as available much sooner. Therefore it's possible that your new number was re-issued sooner than 90s days or the *cough* gentleman you had contact with was simply willing to wait a long time to try again.
Boost Mobile can't detect the difference etween someone calling (or texting) the number to reach you and someone calling to reach the old owner. People can stop using one phone number, start new service and numbers without asking us, just as they can move to a new home without leaving a forwarding address. I can sympathize, as I've had my number 12 years and I still occasionally get collection calls for the previous owner. I used to get 3 or 4 daily. Let's just say, she owed some folks some money.
As your situation is a little less 'inconvenient' and a little more 'alarming' and I would suggest you block this person. If your device is an Android, blocking from your Google account is fairly easy, provided the number does not come up as "private". From the phone app, tap the 3 dots at the top right corner and select "Call Settings" then "Call reject" then "Reject calls". Select the number you'd like to block either from your call log.
If you have an Apple device, it's very similar, Apple has done all the work for me and provided instructions here
I'm sorry that your start with us has had this sour note, but I do hope you're able to use the blocking feature from your phone's operating system to get a little relief.
Hi. Just simply log in your phone number and 4 digit pin here in website so that you can see the call history of your phone.
From the I Want To.... section, customers can select:
the plan is unlimited, but not the hotspot usage. I just found this on their website, hotspot is not unlimited
$60/mo is an unlimited offering that includes unlimited high-speed data, talk and text ... and as of 1/26/16, this plan also includes up to 8GB hotspot usage, unlimited streaming music without data charges

Are you asking about the free incoming calls and text messages if you miss your payment?
Everyone, all Boost customers are automatically part of this.
If you do not pay, then "During those (next) 60 day’s you will be able to receive incoming calls and text messages but you will not be able to make any outgoing calls (except 911/611 calls) or send any text message, and you will not be able to use any data during this time."
Or do you mean the 14 day payment grace period included with the Boost Premier Program?
Normally you would apply at this link;
But it is not working right now, it has said for two months that,

I always tell everyone when they are making a payment online/over the phone or anywhere to always check there bank account even if they receive an error messge just rto avoid these type of problems.
You have to speak to them so they can help you hope that help but if anything at least you dont have to pay next month since you made advance payments. Thats one good thing about this.
