Are you sure it isn't error 16? That is what it sounds like. Does it say that at the end of a message when you try to make a call? If so you need to log into your boost acct online and swap out handsets then swap back and that will clear the error 16. If you do not have an extra boost phone PM me and I will help you do it.
Hope this helps and good luck!
