UICC inserted is not usable

qpackardqpackard FreedomPop Newbie Posts: 3
FP Basic 200 plan
Alcatel Go Flip from Sprint
Model 4044T
4G/LTE
When I put in the FP card in I get the error message, "UICC card inserted is unusable."
Have I made a mistake? Should I have a SIM card instead?
What to do?

    Hi! Can you please confirm the Alcatel Go Flip from Sprint is an unlocked GSM device, running Android 4.1+ ?

    No, it is not an unlocked gsm device. From FP's own pages re BYOD: "Your device must be a Sprint locked phone." My Go Flip phone is a locked sprint device. Here are the specs:

    We need some clarification. Freedompop offers two type of phone lines. One of them are the LTE sims for unlocked GSM devices OR Sprint CDMA locked devices.
    The BYOD program is for Sprint CDMA locked devices but it also needs to be capable of, running Android 4.1+ because we need it to run an app to be able to get calls and text.
    We are afraid that even though the device is locked to Sprint, it's not a Smartphone making it incompatible with Freedompop, we are afraid.
    You are more than welcome to visit our virtual shop to look into the different devices we offer, perhaps you find one that suits your needs.
