No 1st login email-locked out, no 4G access, 3G OK but stuck

Looks like I need an admin to send a first login email, or reset password, tried "reset password" many times, email never arrives, not lost in spam, email account does work. This looks like a great service if you can access it, I understand tech issues a little so I sympathize with the difficulties everyone is having, and thanks for the support by members who are posting here to solve everyones issuse, it is appreciated! I already learned a lot by reading lots of posts and replies...
I never got the 1st email to login so I can't access my account or make any changes to get the Mifi4082 3G/4G hotspot working, I never got the shipping info email, but it arrived after 2 weeks. I sent 5 emails to support and got 1auto reply on the second, so I am trying the forums... understandable that support is swamped and probably way understaffed with this free/low cost service and it seems to be the only real issue with most posts on other forums/articles also, where people just give up and cancel, but it will probably get better over time as the company grows, I hope!
I set up the device and accessed admin page at http://mifi.mlp , got 2 part error message; "3G is not enabled on device", and "you do not have 3G enabled on your plan"...
Read about updating the 3G on the forum by going to WWAN tab, click 3G, go to bottom and expand last tab to see PRL update and profile update...
looks like I only have 3G here, no 4G, could not get either update started probably since it would not allow it to connect, read more similar posts about going to a 4g area to perform update, or use other internet access, tried a few time but no info available on how to use other access with device...
Read another thread where user said he had to buy $3.99 "access" to 3G and it worked fine, sounds like what I will have to do, not sure, was hoping the "free" service would be free if I stayed under 500 meg.
Strange that I have a 3G connection showing it is connected but no internet access, used about 3 meg first try, up to 10 meg after 2nd try to get online, maybe from messung with admin page and update attempts, seems to burn data with no usage so far, might be the cute weater/search aps trying to load, disabled them, hoping to be able to access account soon and login to see profile settings.
Any help is appreciated, will private message an admin with account details when I am contacted.
Thanks for your help!

    If you have NO 4G service in your area but, have 3G, then you need the 500 MB Pro plan. For $3.99 / month. Plus you can add 10+ of us here as friends and gain 500 MB more monthly. Getting 1,000 MB monthly can help dull the financial pain a triffle.

    I on password issue, I both a phone one time and had my email type wrong on it, when I contact support on the phone and got the email type-o problem fix, I ask for my password sent I never got the email. The guy say just use the default password "freedompop". It work, so try it. You have to go to settings to change it under > My Account > Settings.

    Yes, if you on the free plan, it is 4g only. To get the 3g/4g service is to get the pay plan. 3.99 is the lowest plan plan to get on.

    OK it is working now - Thanks! ...admin contacted me with reset password so I could login and upgrade to the $3.99 3G/4G 500 meg plan, then I started mifi4082, shows 3G connection but still had no web access, tried to do the PRL/Profile updates by going to http://mifi.mlp , login, go to WWAN tab, click 3G, went to bottom and expanded "Service Updates" tab to see PRL update and profile update... PRL would not update but "Update Profile" did update pretty quickly, after a few minutes I got web pages to load and it works.
    Thanks for the help, it is greatly appreciated!
