Can I bring my own MiFi 4082 or its a must to buy from FreedomPop?
When I check MEID of the device I bought in ebay it says:

"Snap, looks like we do not currently support your phone model, but we will let you know when we add it."

It does not look like that my MiFi 4082 has not clean ESN because error says it is not supported??


  • Good Morning @yami‌ If you are activating a hot spot that you purchased from a third party (transferring ownership or purchased from a retailer such as Groupon), you can begin the process by visiting our activation page. Follow the easy steps to setup your account and access our FreedomPop network.

    It looks like you may have used our BYOD phone activation page, for hotspots please go here: http://www.freedompop.com/activate

    Note: If your device was not purchased through our website, you will need a separate internet source in order to complete the activation process.

    Well, I got my MiFi4082 from a friend with clear ESN.
    When I enter its MAC or MEID in the link you provided, I get error "please enter valid mac".
    This is Sprint device but not bought from FreedomPop or Groupon.

    @Rich. That is not true. If it is a ex-sprint phone and listed on compatible devices page then call the sales number for freedompop. They will add that mac to the list and you will able to activate it.
