HTC EVO Shift not eligible for activation?

shiftylockshiftylock Posts: 0FreedomPop Newbie
Hey! I have an evo shift that has a clean ESN and is being used with Expo Mobile, but for some reason I can't get it to work with freedompop! I go to the BYOD page, enter the ESN, and I'm told that my device isn't supported... what should I do? I know my device can work with freedompop, I just hope I can finally enjoy the awesome service without paying $30 a month for sprint's service...

    I just did some research on the expo mobile phones...I see like freedompop, they have to be Sprint phone too...

    Is it possible that your phone is still tied to these guys? Best way to check>>>

    Go to Swappa.com and check you esn.meid

    http://swappa.com/esn

    it will tell you if your meid is clean and ready to go..

    If it has been deactivated for more than 30 days from Expo Mobile, then it ought To be good for FreedomPop. Sine we've done nothing since the Snap! Message, it's time to call on an admin to find out the details why FP give the Snap! Error.

    I just checked you meid..and while it is a sprint phone...It is still activated...It will say you have a clean meid and ready for activation....swappa says you phone is still tied to sprint...

    Meaning..You are still tied to your old phone company?

    ESN / MEID: A100001B6F4BE6
    Sprint
    Error ESN is currently activated.
    This indicates the ESN may already be activated on an account.
    above was pulled from swappa---esn is active

    If it was clean it would say it was Ready for activation

    Oh! So I have to deactivate my phone from expo mobile first? It's still active, I ported my number to google voice and plan on deactivating my account.

    As far as I know, nobody has ever been able to activate the EVO Shift, myself included.

    I have heard quite the few activating the Evo Shift. You have to make sure it is not the unlocked version...Make sure it locked and sprint has cleared the MEID...

    Really? I have never seen anyone that has been able to activate the Shift. I purchased two to activate on Freedompop. I finally gave up and activated one of them on Ringplus (both from the same clean Strint account). I even provided the mods with my ESN twice and they still can't provide me with an explanation as to why it can't work.

    He said there were currently problems activating the EVO Shift and they would let me know when they were solved. That of course never happened.

    I have tried to activate it several times since then and always get the "Snap, looks like we do not currently support your phone model, but we will let you know when we add it." message.
