Free Data plan?

So I bought a used MiFi 4082, the same thing that Freedom Pop sells, but when I go to activate it for the first time, Freedom pop is trying to tell me it's not compatible with free data plans? WTF? This is the exact same thing they sell. What's going on here? I'm not paying $100 for their thing just because it's new, that's utterly ludicrous when used ones are $10.

    About a year or two ago, Sprint declared that it was shutting down it's 4G WiMax Network, to make way for their larger 4G LTE Network. Unfortunately this device doesn't run on 4G LTE, but it runs off of WiMax which is discontinued... So in reality, the device will only work on 3G.

    FreedomPop doesn't offer any 3G-only plans for free. You will need a 4G LTE device in order to do so. Sorry for the struggle.
    I usually respond within 24 hours. If you need help, feel free to ask.
