BarntjBarntj Posts: 7FreedomPop Newbie
I was wondering if the text now phone which is a moto g 1st gen had to be active 12 months prior to bringing to freedompop. Also does tge phones monthly service have to be completed inorder to switch? When i tried checking the meid it said i currently use it.

Thanks for any help.

    In general, all BYOD phones must be deactivated on their current service before they will appear as available for activation on another Sprint MVNO. I do not know the textnow service. Is that phone Sprint-branded? Only Sprint- or FreedomPop-branded phones are allowed.

    Yes according to the freedom pop website you can purchase a phone from them and it should work on here. Thanks for your answer.

    All FreedomPop-branded phones, even those purchased from a third party should be eligible. If purchased from a private individual, please confirm the phone is not still identified as active in the system.

    How do I confirm that it is not still identified as active? If it is, what can I do about it?
