Can't BYOD Sprint phone HELP

I'm new to the FreedomPop phone service (have hotspot service though) and I saw on your BYOD list that I could bring over a Spring LG G Stylo over to FreedomPop. I bought this phone used, clean ESN, and yet when I verify the MEI with the BYOD page, it returns an error. Do I need a SIM card? What am I doing wrong here?

    Under the BYOD section of Devices discusiion, there's postings of list of phones that will need SIM card while some phones won't. I would suggest checking those out and see if your phone requires a SIM card to work. If yes, make sure to purchase the appropriate type SIM card for your BYOD phone. Then call Freedompop tech support and they will ask for your phones' IMEI and ICCID numbers to register your BYOD phone and BYOD SIM into FreedomPop's system. It took me less than 5 minutes to get my BYOD phone and SIM running. Good luck.
