Can I swap a device that is on a BYOD promo?

fycfungfycfung Posts: 7FreedomPop Newbie
I have a device on a BYOD3 free plan promo (unlimited minutes/text/1GB for $0/month). Can this plan be swapped onto another device? If so, does it have to be another BYOD, as opposed to having been bought through FP and then released? Thanks!

    To do a swap on FreedomPop, to the BYOD account, or another account you have with FreedomPop. It would have to be on FreedomPop also, under a different account email. Here is a post I created on how to swap devices-

    I just wondered if the BYOD promos were subject to more stringent conditions somehow.

    Just the basic BYOD rules-

    Must be Deactivated 48 hours or more (before you "test" or "activate").

    Android 2.3 or iPhone with iOS 7 or higher.

    Phones must pass the ESN check at (only Deactivated Phones will pass)>>>

    www.freedompop.com/byod

    They cannot be Virgin Mobile, Boost, or Sprint Prepaid phones used less than a year or 12 months.

    They cannot have a balance on the account it came from. Must have a 0$ Balance at Sprint at the Time it was deactivated.

    New phones most likely will not work.

    Must have a Sprint SIM, or Sprint imbedded sim, to check sim use this link>>

    You can purchase Sims on EBay, or your local Sprint Store might have them. Best Buy also sells sim; But Best Buy can be a little pricey. If your phone is coming from Sprint or another Sprint MNVO, chances are you will have a sim that works on FreedomPop.
