ICCID - new to Freedompop

tpoon2000tpoon2000 Posts: 0FreedomPop Newbie
How do I get the ICCID if I do not have a sim card?
I have purchased a new iPhone 5 and the IMEI is not blacklisted.
I looked at the Freedompop instructions and it tells me to go to setup.
I am on the setup screen where it keeps asking to insert a sim card.
I have opened the "i" information page on the bottom of my iPhone and it gives me the IMEI and the ICCID is unknown.

I know I need a sim card from FreedomPop but FreedomPop keeps asking me to put the ICCID
Please let me know how to get a ICCID another way.

Current information screen display
MEID: 99000226045755
IMEI- 99 000226 045755 9
ICCID - unknown

    You need a SIM card ending 406R for iPhone 5. Confirm this, @njfulwider5‌ ?
    Printed in the SIM that you install is the ICCID that is being requested.

    Ting sell the for $9+5, some in past were able to get one at no charge at Apple store. Say you are getting service in iPhone 5 and need a SIM card ending 406R.

    You can buy one on Ting.com for $9. I think you need to register first. Make sure you get one that is compatible with your device.
    For which model to get and other tips for BYOD,

    If you have an account with Sprint or know someone who does, you can change phones on that account, putting your Phone needing a SIM on it. Be careful that Sprint does not charge you an activation fee. I think you can do this in the account online, without charge. Then go to the Sprint store and ask for a SIM.

    This may not work if your current Sprint plan does not provide 4G data.

    Good luck. @njfulwider5‌ both of the sims you gave us are actually the same model, one is the manufacturer UPC and the other is the model number lol.

    Your ICCID will be the number below the bar code.
