Does anyone know the significance of the old phone number (i guess it is the number of the previous iphone owner) in the freedompop iphone? (settings, messages,send and receive). is there a way to get rid of it or correct it to my current phone number?

my ipad mini which shares the same apple account as my freedompop iphone keeps prompting me to add a phone number for "imessage and facetime" (where phone number is the number imbeded in the iphone from the previous owner - not a currently valid number - settings, messages,send and receive). i have selected no to this prompt, but i got another prompt with the same message again. what happens if i answer "yes" to this prompt or is there a way to disable this message repeating again.

    @karl liss Hi Karl, the number you're seeing is known as the MDN number. This number is used for access to the cellular data network, and is needed for FreedomPop service.

    Just as long as you have the FreedomPop Messaging app installed, you will be able to use your phone number as normal like you are now!
