I have a lg tribute bought directly from FreedomPop. It arrived yesterday even though on the website it says it hasn’t shipped yet. When I try to activate it it goes to self activation and that tells me to go to and activate it their but when I try to do that it says device has already been activated. Please help

    @Ricardo Chavez Gonzalez Unless you bought a phone that said "[GSM]" as part of its title, you likely got a CDMA phone locked to Sprint. The FreedomPop SIM when inserted in a CDMA phone usually has error "Invalid SIM". You need an unlocked GSM phone. Ideally one with previous life using the AT&T network to give you the best LTE experience. Must have Android 4+ or iOS 8.2+.
