I am a Boostmobile customer with a Blackberry 8530. I am on the unlimited monthly plan of (after on time payments) $50 a month.
So here’s my little bit of useful information that I one day found out after thinking I still had service but in fact didnt…….yet I kinda sorta still did.
I dont know if this also works for other carriers as far as them being able to do this but I do know that I was able to send and receive text/sms/mms messages to : Verizon/MetroPCS and Sprint customers.
Okay one day I didnt have the full amount in my account to replenish/top-up/refill my whole monthly amount so I ended up passing the deadline date and my service was “Interrupted” aka cut off for about 2 weeks…….oh nooooo!!!! 2 weeks without your phone is HORRIBLE!!!
I completely forgot about the “no service” thing and sent my fellow boostmobile customer friend a txt message
***REMEMBER PEOPLE MY SERVICE IS OFF SO I CANT MAKE CALLS RECEIVE CALLS REGULAR SMS OR BROWSE THE WEB****
after about 5 min I get a reply from my friend. Now if boostmobile customers notice you can send email/sms messages to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s how I was able to still send sms and receive sms messages while my service was interrupted, I asked my friend what address did she see for my sms and thats where the “no service but still txt” thing came from. (I’m a computer/technology freak so it wasnt hard to figure out)
If you are sending a sms to another boostmobile customer you send it to email@example.com
ADD SMS AFTER THE @ THEN . (DOT) MYBOOSTMOBILE.COM
Now if you want others to be able to sms you (verizon/sprint/metropcs) then they have to send the sms to that same address format firstname.lastname@example.org
I know it works with verizon/sprint and metro because my family has those carriers so I sent them a txt to see if it worked and it did.
For verizon its email@example.com (sms) firstname.lastname@example.org (mms)
For metropcs its email@example.com
For Sprint its firstname.lastname@example.org
So go ahead if you’re a boost customer or know another boost customer who’s service is temporarily down, give it a try or send them this post and hopefully its not just my luck maybe its just what it is!!!
Until next time……L8tr!!!

Ever had to give your phone number when filling out a survey or registering on various sites????
Yes i know there’s google voice and skype and a ton of other forwarding services out there but those require some type of subscription, this however doesn’t.
all you do is enter your number or your google/skype number if you have one or prefer giving those out instead and it gives you a set expiration date of 7 days or 14 days.
you use it directly on the homepage or for iphone users there’s an app as well.
Just click the picture to visit the homepage.
For uploading files and hosting I use OpenDrive..
they have tons of features and give you a lot of storage space.
They offer both free and paid plans….check them out !!
