forced messaging update

Turned on phone and got a message saying must update FreedomPop or can't use it. Gave me a red x in the left hand corner. Rebooted and upgraded and now just get the spinning circle, never connects to FreedomPop. At one point I got a validation screen telling me the phone was already activated. I've been using this FreedomPop galaxy 3 since 2015.
The current rev of the application never connects. I can't use the original app any more due to the forced update.

    I figured it out and here is the fix. Ignore the error message telling you to download the OTT message update, instead download the phone-sim update. It will install but still won't connect. As it tries to connect it will give error messages.. general error oops there was an error trying to communicate with the server try again later. At that point open the phone dial pad and enter ##72786# that did another hands free activation and prl update, after the reboot the phone could again connect to the server.
