"no battery" message

Just received my FreedomPop 3G/4G Hotspot device. Installed the battery and plug the device in. In the charge only mode, I got "no battery" error message.

Since I have physical battery in the device, I suspect this is a broken device.

How can I get tech support for the device?

    I have tried factory reset. It makes no difference.

    There is only one way to install the battery. I'm sure I put the battery in correctly.

    The device is Freedom Spot Overdrive Pro.

    I first plug in and press power button to select "Charge only". The device shows "charge only" for a few seconds and reboot with Aircard 8025 screen. Then it shows "Powered off / no battery" message.

    It behaves same as I took out the battery. I can not use the device unless I plug it in.
