iPhone was on freedompop, want to bring it back to sprint postpaid


Recommended Posts

Long story short, got a iPhone 5s on freedompop, its no longer active there. Need it to be activated on Sprint post-paid however the online activation tool and the store rep said the phone is for Sprint Prepaid.


Can I call customer care and request the phone to be moved off the Prepaid database into the postpaid database?

Sprint doesnt allow phones  to be swtiched between prepaid and, postpaid. I think its crap since, att,vzw and, tmobile all do. the small amount of phones they do its only with Boost. Thos phone have to be resku. only sprint makes you resku phones. vzw its just a simcard.

Funny, one time I put an iPhone 5 on Ting, and about a year later got it activated on Sprint without issue.

Freedompop's customer service isn't great and I haven't tried this with freedompop specficially, but I did it with Ting. I called Ting's customer support and they moved the imei from the prepaid database to the post paid one and I activated it on my postpaid count immediately after. If freedompop is giving you trouble you could try activating it on Ting, then immediately call them and have them return the eligibility for a postpaid account and hopefully you can activate it.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
