Galaxy S4 Spark on FP?

Lawrence ReissLawrence Reiss Posts: 21FreedomPop Newbie
Will a BYOD Sprint Galaxy S4 spark enabled version, (SPH L720T) activate on FP and use Spark where available?

Older posts said that only the non-spark version of the Galaxy S4 would work on FP, but if understand, now both the Spark enabled and the non-spark enabled Sprint Galaxy S4 versions will both work on FP.

So please confirm, if correct, that a Spark enabled Sprint Galaxy S4 can be activated on FP, and that it will be able to use Spark speed where available?

Thanks!

    Thank you Ali for responding! I understand that the Spark version will be able to be activated on FP...

    Will the Spark version Galaxy S4 work at Spark speed? In other words, on FP is there an advantage to the Spark version of the Galaxy S4 relative to the non-spark version?

    Thank you again!

    @Lawrence Reiss
    That entirely depends on Sprint's tower capabilities in your area. Spark has not been implemented everywhere. Ask at you Sprint store or look at their coverage map (data only). http://coverage.sprint.com/IMPACT.jsp

    So I take it the answer is Yes, spark will work on FP if sprint has it in the area?

    If you have a Spark-enabled phone, just use the BYOD link, put in a bogus email address, address, and the phone's MEID and see. You do not need to complete the registration. Just do not use an email address you want to use again. FP tends to keep them on the books, even though you did not complete the registration.
