Newly activated S4 no mobile data connection

Hello all,

I just activated an S4 with FreedomPop and I am not able to make or receive calls, texts, or use internet-related services without wifi. Also, I cannot install the FreedomPop Messaging app; I get an error -505. When I disable wifi to try and force a mobile data connection I get an error message saying, "unable to establish a wireless data connection MIP: 67".

About a year ago I had an LG G2 activated with FP and it asked me to do something called (I think it was) a PRL update to get everything working. Is that needed with this phone as well?

My apologies if I should have tried to do a PRL update and/or carrier reset before posting here; I just don't want to irreparably mess something up.

One more thing; can someone link to the admins in a post, I haven't memorized their usernames yet.

    I managed to get mobile data, calling, and texting to work, but I am still having problems installing the FreedomPop Messaging app. I still get error 505 when trying to install it.
