FreedomPop 32GB LG G2 4G LTE Smartphone (Certified Pre-Owned) $60 Activates on RingPlus even after FED
Deal DetailsLast Edited by annie930ny April 17, 2016 at 09:01 AM
These phones aren't affected by Sprint's FED. Therefore, they will activate fine on RingPlus. I checked my Groupon-bought G2's this morning (April 17), and they activate just fine.
5.2" 1980x1080 IPS Touchscreen Display
2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 Quad-Core processor
32GB Internal Memory
13MP rear + 2.1MP front facing cameras
Android OS v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) upgradable to Lollipop
Unlockable for use on AT&T, T-Mobile, or any GSM provider in the world. This is the custom ROM I'm using that has GSM unlocked.

This is what I did to use my FreedomPop G2's on RingPlus:
1) Activated the phone with FP.
2) Called FP to cancel service.
3) Remove all FP apps from G2 (see app list below).
4) Activated G2 on R+
5) From G2, go to Settings, System Update, Update Profile.
6) Reboot phone.
7) Repeat step 5, but select Update PRL.
8) Reboot phone.
In lieu of step 1 and 2, I've also PM'd FreedomPop user here in slickdeals. He/she was also able to release the ESN for a couple of my G2's without having to activate/deactivate.
For those still having issues w/ using their FP phones after successful activation with R+, these are the FP apps you need to uninstall:
For those having GPS issues, I installed a custom ROM on mine. I find no issues at all.
Also, to switch from CDMA to GSM and vice versa, I didn't have to install an app. I just swap SIM cards, then changed modes in phone's mobile networks settings... Again on that same custom ROM .
