Answer

Mobile telephones are two-way radios. When you talk into a mobile telephone, it picks up your voice and converts the sound to radiofrequency energy (or radio waves). The radio waves travel through the air until they reach a receiver at a nearby base station. The base station then sends your call through the telephone network until it reaches the person you are calling.

When you receive a call on your mobile phone, the message travels through the telephone network until it reaches a base station close to your phone. The base station then sends out radio waves that are detected by a receiver in your telephone, where the signals are changed back into voice or data.

A Boost Mobile phone can only work with a T-Mobile sim card if the phone is unlocked. Phones that are locked to a specific carrier will not work with other sim cards.

Only if the T-Mobile phone is unlocked. If the T-Mobile phone is still locked, only T-Mobile SIMs will work.

They told me NO. Just Sprint phone to Sprint phone. Unlimited mobile to any mobile is extra. If you spend $69.99 a month on their voice & data plan, then you can call/receive to/from any mobile.
