Global SIM Card Not Working With My Device

I purchased the Global SIM Card and have inserted it into the phone I use for traveling internationally, an old Samsung that is not a Smartphone. When I attempt to make a call, I get a recording stating that "the call you are attempting to make is not allowed from this line". How do I get the Global SIM card to work on a mobile phone that is not a smartphone?

    @Mel Lamelas - the short answer, is that you're usually going to need an Android/iPhone smartphone to setup & use FP's voice service, since it's VOIP & needs to use an FP app to make/receive calls. As it is, the Global SIM will possibly give your phone a data connection (allowing WAP based surfing), but no regular cellular voice capability.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have an international data modem. How do I configure the modem settings to use the card? Do I use the APN Will that work in Europe also?

    @Mel Lamelas What you would need to do is go to your modem's APN settings and use the APN settings. It will work in every FreedomPop supported country so you should be good to go there!

    Hi Ali, I am having difficulty configuring the SIM card with my mobile hotspot. I have inserted the SIM card, and it shows a connection to a network 410310 at 2G, but when I access the device configuration page, it shows up as disconnected. I have set the APN as indicated. The setup page has a spot for a username and password, and also a type of authentication, PAP or something else. Is the authentication for the FreedomPop connection PAP? Do I need to enter a username and password to connect?

    Many thanks.
