    Does FP have any procedure/incentive in place for upgrading from older device (i.e., HTC Evo Design)?
  • KELLIE LARUEKELLIE LARUE Posts: 148FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    Yes they do. Go to this link here for more Information. http://support.freedompop.com/Device/Mobile/41122442/Swap-to-LTE.htm

    I can't believe this. Wish this deal was available last week. I just received the LG Viper today and it's completely unusable. Apps crash. Battery goes from 100% to 15% in 1.5 hours with phone sitting on table. Now I can't make any more calls. No matter what I do, even after rebooting, every time I try to make a call I get a message that says 'This application is not configured for multiple calls'. So I have a paper weight and would have loved to spend the additional money on a S3.

    Rastoma,
    I sent support an email to see if they will let me swap out my Viper for an S3. I am having the same problems as you.

    @Rastoma @Carl Falcone have you tried pm'ing one of our admins? They can help you out. "@Jorge M." above might be able to help you out with your device!
  • stitus5stitus5 Posts: 23FreedomPop Newbie
    I have had the same issues with my HTC Evo from the original rollout - thanks to Google voice I've still managed to stay somewhat connected.

    What experience has anybody had with the upgrade procedure? How is the call quality on S3 with good LTE/wifi coverage?

    Yes I did, he gave me a phone number to call and they had me on hold for an hour, then got a recording to leave a message. That was last night. No one called me back.

    Um carl its a S3 everyone will laugh at you the S6 come's out april 11th you'll be lame walking around with a old behind s3 i mean honestly for $99 ... not worth it unless it cost $10 according to the phone's reputation see if your friends laugh at you just be like well it only cost $10 but if they laugh and you be like well it only cost $99 then they may laugh even harder same thing goes for the iphones if you walking around with a iphone 4 sorry you're lame in my city ... if you got a iphone 5 you are (alright) if you got a iphone 6 then you're perfect and popular ...
  • Sand  Sand Posts: 31FreedomPop Newbie
    even if you are swapping and not paying $99 .... carl i mean a S3 its not worth it ... it'll make so very lame ... try to swap for a iphone 5 instead (thats more worth it) i'm also calling monday to try and swap as well (for the Iphone5) because with my viper (like everyone else) the battery life is a horror movie X_X ....
  • Carl FalconeCarl Falcone Posts: 46FreedomPop Newbie
    Sand H, They are not going to give you an Iphone 5 for a Viper. The Viper is a 3 year old phone and the first 4gLTE phone Sprint used on its LTE network. Thats why it was free. Its a low to mid-grade product to begin with. Iphone is a high end product.
  • weanutweanut Posts: 309FreedomPop Newbie, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    @stitus5 I got my htc evo 4g activated on freedompop a little over a year ago. honestly, the service & voice quality wasn't that hot for the most part. however, I just reactivated it so my bf can use it. let me tell you, the voice quality is pretty good now, I guess the updates on the fp app over the last couple of months have really made a big difference. anyway, he's a happy camper. now, the s3. I got that on sale in December, although not for $99($120), I find the voice quality quite good, people have mentioned it several times on calls. I was able to switch out the phones quite easily, I think you just have to kind of catch a good time to call. I think I called around 2pm est, but I really think it's just luck :) I'm very happy with the s3 though, no, it's not top of the line but it's a good phone in my opinion, does what it's supposed to do. I'm also very happy with freedompop, it's been a very good experience for me so far. I hope anyone who is having issues will be able to work through them. cheers, liz

    Well Carl i am for sure they can give a discount on the i5 for the viper instead of a free exchange I am calling tomorrow and see what they can do for me I will be fine with a good HTC or Motorola also nope anything less than the iphone5s is not high bend ahaha the i5 is just alright and old the i7 coming out J an 2016 just my opinion
  • Sand  Sand Posts: 31FreedomPop Newbie

    I have to disagree with everything in that post. The S3 is still a powerful device. There are Android devices with lower specs that cost more than a $99 S3. I paid $150 for a new non-FP S3 a few weeks ago and have no regrets. I love the phone and expect it will last me 3-5 years. And as for being "perfect and popular," I don't think most adults care about that. Perhaps for teens having the latest phones is a status symbol, but once you reach adulthood (at least in the low to mid 20s), your perspective on life changes.

    As long as the $99 S3 doesn't have significant problems such as cracks on the screen or spontaneous shut-downs, I'd suggest anyone looking for a decent Android phone to consider this deal. If a defective battery is the only issue, I'd suggest getting a cheap one on eBay if you don't want to deal with RMAs.

    Thank you Jorge M for Directing us to the Incredible deal. I just paid 140$ for the one I just purchased. Could have saved a little buying this one. Might have to invest and get me a 3rd s3 at this price :)

    Byod is just making it hard to find a good phone like this at a cheap price. Why Byod when Freedompop is offering these even cheaper. Took me 5 days to find a good ESN...Great Phone, Very Strong, and Great voice quality when mixed with the Freedompop messaging app. :)

  • Carl FalconeCarl Falcone Posts: 46FreedomPop Newbie
    I agree with you gooby, Sand H. is looking at it differently. Yes from a social perspective you have an old phone, and if i was a 16 year old high school kid, I might care what people think, but I don't. The S3 is a great phone with great technology, much better than the Viper. Its important to understand Freedompop's model is to buy previous generation phones and sell them cheap or give them away. It is not there intention to have the latest and greatest. If you want that you need a different provider.
  • Lacy PfaffLacy Pfaff Posts: 2FreedomPop Newbie
    Wait, I just got this same deal about two weeks ago but I had to pay $180 for the SIII. Is there any way I can get a credit? That's not fair!
  • Sand  Sand Posts: 31FreedomPop Newbie
    Goo by the viper takes horrible pictures the pixels are close to 0 I wish I could buy a better camera for my phone because the battery is not the only issue ... Another issue is the keyboard its giving me major problems and yup i am a teen ... But over 18 ... The s3 is lame I understand you and Carl are old folks but that's no problem ;) live your life be happy
  • LibertyPop5LibertyPop5 Posts: 6FreedomPop Newbie
    How can I send a text message from my email account to my FreedomPop phone?
    (If it was Sprint as carrier, I would have to add @messaging.sprintpcs.com to the Freedompop phone number)
  • Carl FalconeCarl Falcone Posts: 46FreedomPop Newbie
    Sorry Sand H. I meant no offense :) but I'm in my forties. No one my age is looking to see what phone I have, and like you the Viper was not good to me. An SIII would be an upgrade but I just got an email for the Victory for $50 so I might give that a try. I thought you were returning your Viper?
  • Sand  Sand Posts: 31FreedomPop Newbie
    Yup I am going to return it in about 3 more months I need to save money out of 3 of my paychecks for the s4 lol to bad I spent all my income tax money already but yup the s4 is what i decided to try and get and wow I didn't get such emailucky you
  • Sand  Sand Posts: 31FreedomPop Newbie
    What was I thinking the sun must be getting to me I am returning it before my 30 days are up lol not in 3 months
  • M.A. II LopezM.A. II Lopez Posts: 1,163FreedomPop Master, FreedomPop Expert ✭✭✭
    Sandy I also disagree with you completely on the S3 comments. I saw you outed your age so I understand where some of you younge'ns are at thinking wise.

    I will tell you I just picked up a great S3 on swappa for my 21 yrld son and he has had nothing but raves for it and is very appreciative. When I told him about certain aspects that may not be up to par with more current phones his reply was "Dad, I don't care about that, what am I, 18?" True story!

    The phone cost $115, in excellent condition too. If you try finding an S3 for $99 or less anywhere but FP go ahead and make the investment, the S3 is still trending between $130 and $160 on ebay depending on condition!
