I'd found a copy of the Boost APN settings and was able to restore that .xml file to the phone to get standard phone calls and text messages to work on the phone.
From this point forward is where things get complicated. I can not seem to get data and mms to work and have tried everything to get it to work. I've tried the ##72786# and the only thing it seems to do is reboot the phone and require that I re input the PTN and MSID. The phone itself is running KitKat currently and has the NDC version of the stock Boost ROM. Any insight as to how I can get this phone ready to go with at least 3G? (LTE's not really a thing here) Thansk!
PS The network name is called Samsung for what it's worth. Not sure if that has to do with anything.
You can't simply change it over to Boost by putting a boost rom on it. You have to call Boost and get them to switch the phone over. You don't have data because your phone isn't on a phone plan
. Call boost and get the phone activated and you'll be good to go.
