I noticed last week that FreedomPOP is now charging $9.99 to activate any BYOD phone. I have not checked if this price applied only to the Free Monthly service plan but it's a new charge.

Still not a bad deal and their messenger app update makes the phone service usuable in 3G areas.

I just did a LG Volt from Virgin Mobile BYOD on Freedompop ($20 activation).  Signal strength on Band 41 is better on it than Nexus 5 on Sprint.  Hopefully this means there are going to be some changes on how Sprint white-lists its phones for MVNO and maybe even postpaid.


I believe this list below is not complete because I've tried models not listed that have worked.





BYOD Supported Phones:
Samsung Galaxy SII (Samsung Epic 4G Touch is the Sprint name)
Samsung Galaxy SIII
Samsung Galaxy S4** (NO MINI)
Samsung Victory
Samsung Epic 4G
Samsung Nexus S
LG Viper
Motorola Photon 4G
iPHONES (from an iPhone 4 to iPhone 5S.)
HTC Evo Design
HTC Evo 3D
HTC Evo 4G
HTC Evo Shift*
*Please be advised: We are currently experiencing issues with BYOD activation of the HTC Evo Shift, activation may not be successful at this time.*

Tablet BYOD list:

IPADS (all the way up through iPad Air 2)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.0

NEW BYOD List Dated (2/4/2015)

LG Tribute
LG Optimus S
Kyocera Hydro
Motorola Moto G
LG Realm
Samsung Nexus S 4G
LG Volt
Samsung Galaxy Discover
Kyocera Event
Samsung Galaxy Prevail
LG Optimus V
HTC One M7
Samsung Galaxy Mega

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
