Samsung S3 no service

64user64user Posts: 132FreedomPop Newbie

I have a Samsung S3 that recently stopped working over 3G and 4G. It still works just fine over Wi-Fi and I am able to Sync Account Data and that works successfully.

However, it will not do anything when connected to 3G or 4G networks. I have updated the PRL and Profile when connected to WiFi and that does not help.

Whenever I open a web browser when it is connected to a 3G or 4G network, the browser gets redirected to https://setup3g.freedompop.com/faq_answer.htm?categoryId=22019471&categoryTitle=Devices: FreedomPop Overdrive Pro&articleId=23689026 . But of course it doesn't load because there is no connectivity.

Since it is a Samsung S3, it is obviously not an Overdrive Pro. Is it somehow misconfigured?

    Take a peek at your account online. The page you are getting, can sometimes happen when you run out of Data. Make sure you have more than 100mbs of Data and plenty of talk and Text. Than try a ##SCRTN# to update network settings. Dial ##SCRTN# on the Green Icon native dialer and after the phone restarts, will go into a handsfree activation. I like to do mine outdoor. This ensures I have optimal Signals for the local sprint tower. If this fails or if it is successful and you get the same error when you surf. Contact Customer support and ask for an account refresh.
