Issue with FreedomPop Wifi Hotspot

sethamsetham Posts: 11FreedomPop Newbie

I activated the service for FreedomPop Wifi Hotspot but every time I try to activate it I got an error that says "Unable to connect to the data network, turning off the Hotspot. Your plan may not have the Hotspot service, please contact your phone company"

I can make calls, send text messages and access Internet using 4G (WiFi off) so I do know there is not a connectivity issue but something with the phone or the service at Freedompop end.

I called Freedompop and I as asked to reset the phone (##786# and a code they provided) but the issue persists, they escalated the request but the answer today was to refund what I paid so far for the service without further information.

Any advice?

    @setham It could be since the hotspot app did not recognize you were subscribed to the hotspot plan! You should remove it from your phone and add it via the app.
  • @setham Since your issue was escalated you will be receiving an email from our Dev team. Please standby.

    @Ali I think we are getting some place here, I was told to activate HotSpot in the Phone (@settings), I do not have installed any Hotspot App, I searched and did not find any HotSpot app from Freedompop.

    Victory devices sold before November 2014 have issues connecting to the hotspot feature.
