1. Verify the SIM card working

Ensure that the SIM card of Boost Mobile Phone is working properly. It may be working on the other device, so try to insert it on the other device rather than your phone and complete the SIM swap activation process. If the Boost Mobile SIM card is working on the other phone, there is a possibility that your phone has some fault in it.
