Hi,my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. I'll be the one to assist you with your question regarding your issue today. You cant take one SIM card out of one phone and into another. I wish it was that easy but the phone has to be reassigned by the carrier... They may even require you to put a new SIM card in...

Having said that, if your original phone and original sim was working before it should work now.

Turn the phone OFF, and back on again after you install the SIM in OLD phone and it should start working as before

If you want the new one to work, you will have to call BOOST and give them the numbers so they can activate it all for you
