    Can someone show me to flash an iPhone 4 for Sprint, To Boost Mobile.
    No need to explain what ESN cloning is, They flashed my Sprint Galaxy S3 at Boost Mobile.
    But I don't want to pay $70 to flash when I can do it myself.

    Please, and thank you :)

    By flash i am assuming that you mean carrier unlock. There are plenty of tutorials out there, but before anyone can help you, we need to know two things; your baseband and firmware. To find each of these, go to the Settings app, then go into the General tab, then the About tab. From there, scroll down until you see "Version" (Note that this is your firmware version) and then scroll down till you get to "Modem Firmware". (This is your baseband)

    After you give me those two pieces of information, i would be more than happy to direct you in the right direction. :)

    Thank you Mr. Flying Taco

    I know how to unlock the iPhone 4 GSM, but not CDMA.
    Boost Mobile uses sprints towers, I know for a fact it can be flashed ;)
    MetroPCS is fine too.

    Version = 6.0.1 (10A523)
    Modem Firmware = 3.0.04

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but *to my knowledge* there has not been a publicly released way to flash onto Boost. As far as iPhone flashing goes, the only ones that i have seen work are MetroPCS and Pageplus and Cricket.

    If you have your heart set on Boost, i would suggest just calling them and seeing how they would feel about it. Again, i have yet to hear/see of a true success story for flashing sprint to boost on an iPhone.

    I'll keep digging and ill be sure to post back if i find anything, but for now, i would say your out of luck for having Boost.

    From what i have heard, MetroPCS stores will add your ESN to their database for a small fee (heard anywhere from $10-40) Here is the best tutorial i can find on the subject. Not the greatest, but if you have some knowledge, it is doable.

    He pretty much just swapped the ESN, and called some number.
    I'll ask him if you'd like.

    its actually the same way, but you must add a boost prl you're phone. and program it from there. I've done it two times so far.
