nope
Boost Mobile's network is iDEN.... not GSM
some think so since they both use SIM cards
but they are still two different technologies and are not compatible with each other
You can only use other Boost Mobile phones and unlocked Nextel phones with Boost Mobile or Sprint

fyi
AT&T and T-Mobile run on GSM networks........Sprint and Verizon Wireless use CDMA
