Resetting a Boost Mobile personal identification number (PIN) is necessary if you want to protect your account from unauthorized access or if you want to change the PIN before selling your phone to a new owner. In addition to resetting the PIN number, you can also request a text message that includes the PIN number for your account. This is helpful if you simply need to get a copy of your PIN number but do not need to reset the number.

Request a text message with your PIN number from the Boost Mobile website. Load the Boost Mobile My Account page and click the link that reads "Forgot your Account PIN?"
