Root [Boost Mobile] USCellular to Boost Mobile?


Nov 13, 2014

So... I purchased a S3 on ebay for $100. Great condition, seems to work perfectly.. one problem.. it's US Cellular.. Now I do have a Boost Mobile account & phone (Warp Sequent) so I was wondering if there was any way to get my S3 from Us Cellular to Boost.

I knew it was a US Cellular phone upon purchasing it, I thought I could flash it to Boost Mobile, which I was told I can't. I can't return the phone to the ebay seller.. so I thought I would ask here to get any info.. Is there seriously no way of flashing the phone to Boost Mobile? Should I just cancel Boost Mobile and go with a US Cellular plan?

I didn't know if I should put this thread in the Boost version or the US Cellular version.. so if I put it in the wrong section then I apologize. Please help.
