Hi I asked Ali to run a check on my new iPad mini meid. It won't activate on byod. He said its all clear and to post a discussion so somebody could add to Freedompop database and activate for me. Could somebody pls PM me so I can send the MEID privately and get this device activated? Thank you!!

    Can confirm, MEID given is 100% clean and has no FEC on it. Locked to Sprint too. Needs to be placed to the /activate funnel for activation to work smoothly.

    Hi I'm hoping a Freedompop rep can pm me soon about this. Thanks!!

    Good luck with that. The admins here keep telling me to contact Sprint to get it added to the "DNA Database," (whatever that is). The half-dozen reps I've spoken to have no idea what DNA database is, a MVNO is, or what I'm talking about and tell me that I need to buy a tablet from Sprint in order for them to activate it.

    So this is a classic case of everybody pointing the finger at everybody else. It's like going to the DMV, I swear.

    what will happened if you do 1 month service with Sprint ? This will push the device in the DNA pool, no ? I guess it's easy to cancel after that and then goto Freedompop. (I also got ipad mini 4 but didn't activate it yet)

    This might work, but is prepaid service even available with Sprint tablets? All I can find is contracts with HUGE ETFs.

    I activated it yesterday with Sprint plan for $15/month - 1GB. The process to join Sprint all done from the device (iPad mini 4) under the Settings/Cellular ... During the registration process it asked for SSN because it's a Post Paid account and not Pre Paid.
    I will let it run for a few days before cancel Sprint service and join Freedompop.
    Apple store said the device has Apple SIM card inside. I really hope it will work ok trying to activate it on Freedompop.
    If someone already try this, please give us some details what to expect.
    Thanks.

    so I cancelled the Sprint service after 1 week , and try to activate it today with Freedompop. Got a message: "Sorry your BYOD phone does not qualified..." . Does anyone know what can be done ? Thanks.

    Just happened to revisit this post and sorry to hear more people haven't had any luck. I wound up returning the new minis I bought from Walmart and purchased directly from freedompop on 9/7. I still do not have them. Best estimate I could get is another 4 weeks. I could not get any guidance on where to purchase new to byod. I guess we just have to keep trying and see if activation will work. @freepopuser I thought of your idea too. No advice but thanks for sharing experience. Maybe it takes a few days for databases to update and yours will work?
