This device is not eligible to swap.

Currently, the phone i have on my account is busted and unusable. So i'm trying to swap my service to my iPhone 5s that is also with Boost. However, everything I try, i get the message, "This device is not eligible to swap." Can anyone help me?

I have been able to swap devices but cannot send or receive mms, nor can I access the internet without wifi. I have checked the message board and have check the typical bug fixes with no luck. My data is enabled, my message permissions are correct, but I still can't send pictures.

Hello Mammy. Are you using the SIM card that was included with the new phone?

I am not near a computer to do so. This process has been the most aggravating of all my cell phone dealings.

@Mammy You can do it from your phone too. The option should show when you tap on an agent's name.

@Karlyf42 In that case we need to verify if the phone is compatible with us. Please send us a private message so we may work with you through there.
