Why does freedompop say my iphone4 cant be activated?

Reuben CastaiReuben Castai Posts: 0FreedomPop Newbie
this is the IMEI number: A10000255A4228

Sprint says the phone is clean, theres no ESN block. But freedompop rejects it why?

    Only 16GB versions of the iPhone 4/4S are currently supported. What size memory do you have?

    @Reuben Castai‌ I see you have an iPhone 4 8GB in White. Unfortunately, you are not able to use your device for the following reasons-

    - This is an 8GB iPhone 4
    - This iPhone 4 is a Verizon iPhone 4 and will not work with FreedomPop


    If you would like to use your device, consider getting a WiFi hotspot and use our VoIP app for calls and texts. Otherwise, consider purchasing a phone directly from us.

    Good luck :-)

    @Reuben Castai

    took a peek at your esn/meid--just to confirm I got the same thing....


    It says you have a Verizon Iphone 4

    Can you verify? if this is the case...It also needs to be a sprint...

    Okay everyone, I am indeed confirming this is an iPhone 4 from Sprint. Apparently Verizon has it in their database as well... this is kinda funny.

    270113181305915176 is the ESN DEC you may want to use, however I don't think it will go through since you have an 8GB device.

    For now, you can use one of the WiFi hotspots that FP sells, or soon once FP comes out with its fixed WiFi service everyone can benefit :)

    yea I got that verizon thing too, but its been activated on sprint for two years. I also activated a 32gb iphone a few days ago and they told me I shouldnt have been able to do that.

    Why does this phone only have a MEID that starts with a letter? The IMEI and meid on my other iphones start with 99.
  • Ali Ali Posts: 6,735FreedomPop Master, Test Role, iOS Master ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Reuben Castai‌ Your other devices have an MEID that starts with a 9 because they also have an IMEI number. The BYOD system is a bit whack, sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. I would try to see if you can get ahold of development and they could potentially add it to the database here. Good luck :-)

    @Reuben Castai

    Yea swappa's been acting strange lately...I have looked up a few phones that all showed Verizon....and found out later it was a sprint Iphone..

    The 32gbs are hit and miss.....People that get lucky and activate them, tend to have the dreaded (NOT REGISTERED) allot....But a simple reset usually fixes it pretty quick.

    I think you can use both when activating(MEID and IMEI)...Not 100% sure....Most people use the meid when activating

    The letter might be what is confusing swappa....I think most Verizon iphones start with a letter--the ones I have seen are A...

    Did you attempt a activation already?

  • Hello @Reuben Castai‌ at this time only 16gb Iphones are supported on the freedompop network, please check back soon as FP is always working towards adding new supported devices.

    @njfulwider5‌ I actually checked with Verizon and they actually allowed it. It wasn't Swappa that was messed up, Verizon had the same issue on every ESN tool
