Will the freedompop Nexus 5 use any GSM card, including the foggmobile one sold by freedompop?

    Yes, considering it's an unlocked device, it should be able to use any GSM Sim Card.

    The foggmobile one sold by FreedomPop is GSM, so yes, it should work.
    I usually respond within 24 hours. If you need help, feel free to ask.

    N5 arrived working ok. upgraded to android 6.0.1 using settings device upgrade (no need to root, etc.). Needed to upgrade messaging app to get phone service. Changed SIM to Fpop Global Sim. Needed to change apn to foggmobile. Needed to sync account data from messaging app to get Global Sim working with app. Works just like Global Sim works in iphone 4s. Changed SIM to ATT prepaid. calls worked like normal cellular service, no data needed. Needed to select Att phone apn to get data working. Fpop messaging app not used. Changed back to original Sprint SIM. Needed to sync account data from messaging app.

    I can say that it is a Global phone and is not locked to Freedompop or Sprint when using SIMs.

    I just joined freedompop, purchased a Nexus 5 and activated the basic plan. Do i need to order Global SIM separately for roaming in UK?

    The SIM in the fpop N5 is Sprint SIM. It will have to be changed. MicroSIM size. You should be able to use any UK sim, including fpop. The fpop messaging app "may" have to be removed to use another carrier SIM and the apn manually set.
