FreedomPop help requested on 3G/LTE issue

rsdkrsdk Posts: 57FreedomPop Newbie
I can connect to FreedomPop only over WiFi with my BYOD Galaxy S4. I’ve tried a number of steps to try to get it working (see below) over 3G/LTE, but have had no success. Sprint told me that it was due to a connection issue with FP and only FP can fix it. Can FreedomPop help?

I believe the issue must be with FreedomPop’s communication to Sprint of the phone’s eligibility for cell service. I don’t know how that’s done, but hope FreedomPop can look into that for me.

Below is what I’ve tried, each a number of times. None of these fixed the problem. I get a good Sprint signal (no problem with a ZTE Force).
  • Tried to update PRL and Profile, both with WiFi on and off. These only pull up the Sprint (not FP) Hands Free Activation, which tells me to call Sprint.
  • Downgraded from Unlimited to free service.
  • Force stopped the messaging app, cleared cache, uninstalled it, reinstalled newest version.
  • Reset using ##786# and my MSL code.
  • Reset SCTRN using ##72786#.
  • Activated, deactivated, activated again under a new email address.
  • Changed network mode to CDMA to check 3G only service.
  • Removed the SIM card and rebooted.
  • Changed the MDN and MSID to my FreedomPop phone number.
  • Manually entered the FreedomPop APNs.
  • Tried various ROMs, clearing cache and wiping each time.
