Follow the same imaging steps from the Droidviews tutorial.

Anything else that will help me out?
Check out the new FreedomPop Diagnostic App [google.com]! It's great for testing out your phone and helping to troubleshoot and potential issues that come up.

Does 3G access cost any money?
No, unlike our hotspot plans, there is no cost for nationwide 3G access. It is included as a part of the Free plan.

What if I need more data while on the Free Plan?
When you approach your monthly data limit, you have the option to either have your data service suspended for the remainder of the month, or continue usage on a pay-as-you-go basis. Each additional megabyte of data used beyond your original allotment will cost $0.02 per MB.

If I'm on the Free Plan, what happens if I need more Minutes and Texts?
When you reach your monthly limit of 200 Minutes and 500 Text Messages, your phone service will suspend itself. If you wish to have more Minutes and Texts, you would need to upgrade to a higher plan.

Can I port my existing number over to FreedomPop?
Yes, you can port your number. There is a one-time cost of $9.99 to Port your number.

Can I exceed my data limit, even if it's set to suspend itself?
With automatic top-up disabled (found in the Billing Settings of your account), your data service will suspend itself when you're within 100MB of your data limit. Please note that there is a 3-hour delay in data reporting from Sprint's towers to our system, so there is a slight chance that you can exceed your limit if there is significant usage within that 3-hour window. If you're only browsing the web/reading articles, then you should be fine. However, if you're doing high data usage activities during that window (such as Netflix or large downloads), then there's a chance you can go over, since our system won't recognize that you're at your limit in time to suspend you.

What kind of coverage do I need? What network do you use?
The LG Nexus 5 requires a data connection in order to send/receive calls and texts messages. The data connection can including WiFi, 4G LTE, or 3G. To check out 4G LTE and 3G coverage, visit http://www.freedompop.com/coverage3g4g. Be sure to select the 4G LTE and 3G boxes. Connecting to any local WiFi network works too!

Will different data connections affect call quality?
As with all phone services, call quality is entirely dependent on your coverage/proximity to your local cell towers. Call quality will be better when you're connected via either 4G LTE or WiFi, when comparing to 3G.

How about app updates?
The FreedomPop Development Team is constantly working to improve all aspects of our phone service, ranging from battery life to latency. As a result, we will release updates to our Messaging App that will increase the overall quality. In order to take advantage of these improvements, you would need to update the FreedomPop Messaging App in the Google Play Store.

How do I get even more free data every month?
You can connect with other FreedomPop users through Freedom Friends (found on your account page) and earn up to an extra 500MB of extra data, every month for free! Check out this thread- http://slickdeals.net/f/5276432-freedompop-friends

How long for shipping?
Estimated shipping time-frame is 2-3 weeks. As the deal gets more popular, shipping times may increase.

Have a Billing Issue?
We encourage all our users to come to us first to see if we can explain any charge or resolve any billing issue before further escalation.

Does anyone know if there's a charge to discontinue service even on the free plan or was it only on their hotspots?

How easy is it to replace the battery? I've heard that most freedompop pre-owned phones have bad battery life and they need the batteries replaced.

[QUOTE=gomike;76348507]No charge to change to free plan.

Thanks, but I meant if and when I want to completely cancel the FP free plan and move to say T-Mobile. I thought I read somewhere that they charged when you cancel on their hotspot service if you had it less than a year.

It's a free phone right? No commitments at all? Just get the phone then cancel?
