Can I root my Freedompop provided S3?

If I install a custom ROM, then all I need is the Freedomop messaging app, correct? Will it set my APN correctly for me? What about all the sprint account settings?

I have a few apps that are refusing to work with wifi, and no vpn solutions are working for me. I need to fix that quickly, a root and custom rom sounds fine.

    are we talking about a Freedompop Phone, or a BYOD?

    If its a BYOD, you can download the app after your done...after you've activated...It should work just fine with the root. Some Freedompop phones come rooted every now and than....

    If It a Freedompop Phone. I advise against it if you have a warranty. Might void that warranty.

    I try not to talk about rooting and custom Roms on here, maybe another member can guide you on the correct path for a BYOD..

    It's a Freedompop phone. I have a few apps that do not work with my wifi for some reason. I thought a fresh rom might fix that. I do know I need certain info to setup my freedompop account on it if I flash it fresh, but I want to make sure exactly before I do. I really do not care to root it, but I need to fix this problem with wifi.

    Procy settings were wrong; got it fixed. No real need to root now. I suppose. I do wish I could get VPN working still.

    You'll be getting that VPN soon enough with the proxy fixed.

    Actually, no. VPN just refuses to connect.
