received sim asks to activate

glenb77glenb77 Posts: 5FreedomPop Newbie
i established account, have existing device, unlocked gsm phone. received global sim, when i install it and use messaging app, it asks to activate (one more step activate), when i put in my email, it shows error existing email address or smilar. card shipped on my established account. and shows in the history of account. on account website, under days left in cycle it states cycle starts when device ships. it has shipped 10 days ago or more. how do i get this to activate for my account. this is/was a 99 cent sim promo, so i believe that has something to do with it. thanks to anyone who can point me in right direction.

    Same problem: if it ever locates me, it says I have to activate, then "existing email in use" (????).
    Most of the time FP can't find me as a user, the messaging app just spins and spins and spins....

    jim, when you go online and sign in; does it show your use cycle has started and is there anything in data activity. mine shows nothing and although it connects and gets ip; it gets no data. i have emailed support without reply. unless someone on the forums can guide me/us, i guess i will have to call

    there is a freedompop representative on the slickdeals forum that fixed this for a lot of people, just send him a private message

    thank you, i was able to get it activated through the rep on slickdeals.
