Need to switch phones and emails

williamlthomaswilliamlthomas Posts: 2FreedomPop Newbie
I recently purchased a new Freedompop Galaxy S5 and registered it under a new, different email, but I need to get it switched to this account and email, and the phone here removed. What steps do I need to follow to have this happen?

    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.

    Just so others know. I tried the above with my Galaxy S5 and it wouldn't activate. Local coverage works fine for my HTC Evo 4G. Works on my home network. Phone is ESN clean and reset to factory settings.

    Don't know why and can't call the company to find out.
