i had this sprint note edge with sprint previously, then went with ringplus, and finally come to freedompop. yesterday, i took it off of freedompop and try to put it back on to sprint, but sprint said it can not activate it. I check online, and found the phone's status is active and clean. i was going to see if tello will take the phone and it does. so, is my phone only able to activate on sprint mvno/prepaid now?

anyone have insight on this?

    It depends on the phone. Most phones coming from FreedomPop are Sprint variants and can only be used on a CDMA account. Also when a phone is taking of or the server, it normally takes around 48 hours for the number to clear so the other Carrier can use.

    Hope all is well,
