Can my Nokia Lumia 530 locked to Telstra be used with a boost sim?

I have recently bought a Nokia Lumia 530 locked to Telstra and just wanted to know if it can be used on boost because boost uses the Telstra 3G network. Thanks

Hi there Eathan

It should work just fine, but to be absolutely certain it would be best to contact Boost on 125 8881 or at http://livechat.boost.com.au

Hope all goes well.

any handset from Telstra will work with Boost except Iphone 5 and earlier versions of Apple.

 

those are the only handset that needs to be unlocked to recognize a Boost sim card

Following are the steps with which you can run 3g sim in lumia 530:

First go to App List, then tap Setting and select Cellular+SIM
If your device runs on dual sim then you can either choose SIM 1 setting or Sim 2 settings, based on your preference you have to turn on data connection on that sim
Enable use cellular data in For Limited Wi-fi Connectivity
If your device runs on dual sim then choose sim card for data connection from SIM for Data connection
Enable 3G Connection for fastest data connection and also enable Highest Connection Speed.

For whole explanation refer to Nokia Lumia 530 Manual
