    If you have Freedompop Free Call and text installed, please uninstall and install the Freedompop Messaging app. The Freedompop Free Call and text is for wifi only device.

    Once it is downloaded or updated. Open the app and place one call using the dial pad, top right corner of the app. This will initialize the phone for first use. You might even see the app syncing. It will sync in the notification area till you see your phone number. The screen might even turn blue for an instant with a Freedompop Logo. This is normal. It is just the app intilizing. After you initialize, and the phone syncs, you can use the phone's native dialer for Phone calls. To make a text or receive text, you will use the Freedompop Messaging app. The app will ask you if you want to make Freedompop the default. Make sure to press yes.

    Freedompop use the Freedompop Messaging app to integrate the Phone's native dialer to place calls and receive calls. It is also used to create Text instead of using the Phones native messaging app. The only way to make phone call on a BYOD phone (Bring You Own Device) & Freedompop Branded Phones, the app has to be installed. If you have the app installed, please upgrade to the most recent app, using the Play Store. If you have the app installed and you are still having issues placing calls. I know a few suggestions we can try.

    Please let me know if you have any questions, or you have an IPhone. The instructions for an IPhone are a little different.

    Hope this helps
