These apps do not work. Im just started a few days ago with the free phone service. Will my service stop working if I dont use the Freedompop apps for talk and text? Im using a Nexus 6 fully unlocked running Android 7 beta.

    @dwight_dj25 Hi! You do not need to use the FreedomPop app for calls and texts for service to work! Feel free to remove them if you do not want to use the app.

    1) it was said that the sim works on GSM phones. when i inserted the SIM on AT&T unlocked iphone 4 , it is not working.
    2) is the SIM card active even though i dont use it? i will be out of country for four months and SIM will be sitting aside when i am using local SIM cards.
    3) someone said if we disable topup option, we need to maintain atleast $5 balance to work, is that true?
    4) calls made from freedompop app using wifi connection count towards the limit?
    5) freedompop suspends account if it is not able to to charge my credit card?

    1) You can only use the global sim in an AT&T phone, the regular sim requires a Sprint phone

    3) I have disabled auto top-up and I don't carry a balance

    The internet works without app.
    Calls and text messages do not work without app.
