Changing phones with existing Freedompop accounts

Stacy Wessel-McCoyStacy Wessel-McCoy Posts: 6FreedomPop Newbie
Hello, My mom and I both have active Freedompop accounts/numbers. I would like to give her my phone to use with her current number/account. I would then like to add a new (used) phone to my current account. Both phones are iphone 4. How do I prepare the phones for the switch and then how do we make the switch? Thanks for your help.

    Swapping new phone onto existing account--------------------------------
    1. First activate your new phone on a new account, paying the activation fee if it is BYOD. If the new phone is FreedomPop branded, then there is no activation fee.
    2. Contact customer service or wait in this thread for the forum admins to respond and swap phones on the two accounts.
    3. Confirm the new phone works on the old account.
    4. Contact customer service again to deactivate the new account (old phone on it now) and (if BYOD) process a refund for the new account. Do this within the first thirty days the new account is open.

    Looks like you have to do the switch twice, once for the new phone and again for your old phone and your mom's account.
