Boost Mobile SMS

If you've got a cell phone from Boost Mobile, here's what you need to know about using SMS text messaging with your mobile.

  • Maximum message length: 500 characters.
  • What happens to longer messages: Unknown.
  • Cost per message: For pay-as-you-go plans, it's 10 cents per message to send or receive. For unlimited plan users, it's 10 cents per message to send; free to receive. (Same pricing when you send messages to overseas recipients.) Multimedia messages (MMS) cost 25 cents each to send or receive.
  • For more information: Boost Pay-as-You-Go FAQ, Boost Mobile Unlimited FAQ
  • Sending email to your phone: Use the address format [10-digit phone number]@myboostmobile.com
    Example: 2125551212@myboostmobile.com

Here's a handy tip for Boost customers: When you're sending a text message to a friend who's also on Boost, you can include reply options right within their message. That way, when they get your SMS, all they have to do is select a reply -- they don't have to key in a whole message back to you. When you're sending a text message from an email program on your computer, put 2 tildes (~) before the response section and hit return after each response.

For example:
Are you going to the Shania Twain concert?
~~
~ Definitely. (Hit Enter/Return)
~ Nope, wouldn't be caught dead there.(Hit Enter/Return)
~ Maybe, gotta check with my parents. (Hit Enter/Return)

I live in england and can receive texts from a friend in USA with Boost Mobile. But she does not receive replies from me when I send texts... I can call her no problems... any idea.. I can text plenty of other people in USA on other networks
 
Obviously there's some kind of glitch in the gateway between your U.K. carrier and Boost Mobile in the USA. I don't know if there's anything you can do about this. Maybe your friend could contact Boost Mobile customer service?
 
hi! I`m from Bosnia,but I`m living now in the USA.I`m wonderind whether I can send sms to my friends in Bosnia or not?
Thanks
 
I just purchased a Boost Mobile phone - a Motorola i415. When one of my friends sent me a txt message, it appeared in the SMS folder, but I was surprised to see there were no reply options. So I downloaded the full version of the user's manual from Boost's site, and much to my amazement, found that it said while I could receive SMS messages on my phone, I can't send them (this seems asinine in the extreme). Anyhow, I downloaded a couple other manuals for other Boost Models, and they say the same thing! They then continue to describe just what "Boost Mobile Text Messaging" is...which seems to be the same as, well...SMS. Sound confusing?

I used an online SMS service to send myself a text message, to test things out. When I had to select the carrier, I chose Boost...but then nothing came. So I decided to send another, selecting Nextel, and that arrived instantly, again, in the SMS folder. About two minutes after, the one I sent first, selecting Boost, arrived also, but in the "Inbox" folder, which offered a "Reply" button, and showed the sender - in an email address format.

I've used the "Create Mesg" option, and filled in a friend's phone number beside "To:" -- but they aren't receiving my messages.

So, what I'd like to know from anyone out there: Is this standard with Boost phones? Or is it just the particular model I have which is causing the aggrivation. To send a txt message from my phone, to someone else, do I have to type their number in an email format for Boost to send it properly? E.g., xxxxxxxxxx@carrier.com

I get the "Message Sent!" screen each time, but no one gets anything. Any help on this would be very much appreciated, 'cause otherwise, I'm just going to take the damn thing back in a few days, if I can't get it sorted.
 
guess what i got that same probile i cannt reply to it. i think all email text's to your phone is accepted as a MMS thus going to the inbox folder. i tested on my sprint phone to send myself a MMS i got it in the inbox folder and replied and my sprint phone got it as a text with the subject included. I have text nextel people before and i noticed the phones are similar so i wonder how they been texting me back? Oh welll
 
Hi,
I'd like you guys to check out http://www.blitzplanet.com to find outif it works in the US with Boost. You'll get a couple of free SMS credits and if you need more just send an email to support. Any testing appreciated as we are considering to move into the US.
 
I dont have any problems with Boost mobile text msgs. However, I do not understand what "Missed Events" means(?) When I miss a call or if I don't pay attention to the alarm ringing, my phone will list these as Missed Events instead of a missed call or turning off the alarm. If someone sends me a text msg, it also shows as a missed event. Does anyone know what thats all about?
 
I have boost mobile to, and sometimes when you send messsages it takes a while for them to get the message. It has taken up to 4 or 5 hours for one of my messages to reach my friends. but after a few sent ones, they'll get them right away.


hope this help!

Hi well I would like to know how to read all my text messages that I sent and recieved. My phone is broken and I had all the sent and recieved text saved. How can I access and get to them online. There must be a way but when I go to the account activity online it just says when I did one but does not show it.
 
I just bought a Motorola i425 for Boost Mobile prapaid. I am able to send text messages to friends just fine. When I recieve text messages, the phone does not display the senders phone number or even signature so I have no idea who I am talking to. Also, I can't seem to reply to texts that friends send me either. The majority of my friends are on Alltel and Verizon.
What gives?

I didn't read all the replies to this thread but I am not recieving replies to text messages I send to an email address, after testing this myself to my own email address I figured out the problem. People who recieve messages from my phone see the address as 1708#######@myboostmobile.com and that address does not work. It should be 708#######@myboostmobile.com without the 1 in front of it. If I send a message from my email without the 1 in front it works just fine. I am going to complain to boost customer support about this issue.
