Except freedompop now holds the ESN for Sprint networks until 6 months of service with them. If you have other information, please share.

I would stay away from freedom pop and their so called deals. Never had a good experience with this vendor. Waste of time and money.

I'd be interested in the CDMA/GSM service combo, but the Nexus 5 poor battery life is well-documented and not something I want to deal with.

I don't have to switch service too often though (only when traveling), and I already have both the CDMA and GSM versions of the LG G2, so I will stick with those. The extra device comes in handy as a wifi media player too.

Go read up in some previous Freedompop threads on the Nexus 5 when used on the Sprint network. Freedompop is holding all ESNs until six months of service has been completed with them, even on used devices. Use on GSM networks don't have the same restrictions.

This is incorrect. You are thinking of the general Sprint 12 month rule, but there is a FreedomPop-specific 6 month rule. (Which makes sense because all of the devices sold by FreedomPop are used, so Sprint would achieve nothing by holding them to the same 12 month rule as other carriers.) See here:

this is very old phone, it might already have been used for years.
this specific phone ended production in 2013
The bottom line, it is unlocked GSM phone, it works any SIM card from att and t-mobile, freedompop GSM SIM card. Most likely also works on Verizon,
but who cares, it is too old , small battery phone.
you'd better to get it for Moto G4

That is a funny way of say "Sorry, I guess I was mistaken." The phone's age is irrelevant to its GSM capabilities and the FreedomPop-specific 6 month rule. But I'm glad to see you sort of concede the point.

nexus 5 is a surprisingly decent phone. still use it occasionally on Ringplus. Battery life is pretty crap but it's been a few years now; somehow feels significantly smoother/faster than another phone i also own w same specs (LG stylo)
