In order to activate your Galaxy S2, your phone will need a clean ESN/MEID.

Or you can find your phone's MEID by tapping Menu > Settings > (scroll down) About Device > Status (scroll down). The number should match the number you find under your battery cover. If they do not, fall back to the MEID you found by going through "Settings".

Once you locate your MEID, you will need to verify that it is clean. You can utilize a number of websites for this, such as




Once the MEID is verified, proceed to our BYOD funnel at freedompop.com/byod to see if your location qualifies for service.


You will then be asked to enter your ESN/MEID. Once the MEID is confirmed, you will be able to select an area code of your desire.


Once your MEID is verified, and your phone number is confirmed, you will need to reset and program your phone. Here’s how:
