So i've never booted my Phone before and need help...
Hi this is the first time im about to try to boot my phone, ever. I got no problem following the step by step instructions I just wanna make sure it's what I want first.
I have a Sprint LG Optimus S. No service on it, got shut off awhile ago.. I'd like to unlock it to put boost on there. Can someone explain to me how I would go about doing this? Is unlocking the same as rooting?
Please help me out

Rooting is simply gaining an Administrator access to the operating system so you can make changes, etc.
You can use regular Sprint phones on Boost, but last I checked there was no way to (legit) use a Sprint Android on Boost. You would do better to try your question over at HowardForums as they deal in phone flashing."Your Android Brain is capable of so much more"
