Default will 7510 work w/ boost?

Please Login to Remove!

I would like to use my NXTL 7510 for (voice and chirp only, no data, no email) on Boost
I've read that the 7520 does work, but haven't seen anything about the older 7510 blackberry.
Anybody know if 7510 will work with boost?

thanks all for your help.

Update:
I just got a cheap boost phone and had it activated, then pulled the sim and now it's in the bb 7510.So far, so good for voice and direct connect.

ps; I also bought the 20-cents-a-day internet program just in case the 7510 keeps trying to get data.
I'll let you know in a couple of weeks how it all works out.

Yes, it will work. You have to have boost phones unlocked for them to work with nextel.
