The Circle K store I purchased the recharge from said that they regularly have this problem. The store called Boost, and THEN the recharge was applied to my account.

This isn't the first time I've had problems with Boost Customer Service...due to their accents, I assume their in India: I can't understand them, and they don't understand the problems I describe.

Keep in mind, Boost is affiliated with Nextel and Sprint...
