Manufacture refurbished iPhone 5 not qualifying for BYOD

I read in another post; new (never activated) phones usually don't qualify for BYOD. Does this mean I can activate on a different sprint/mvno network and then activate on freedompop?


Thank you

    @Robert Snipes Unfortunately even before the FEC was here brand new and never activated phones returned an error on all MVNO carriers for activation.

    Then I must activate with sprint first. Thank you Ali.

    The official criteria say it needs to have been activated on postpaid one year earlier.

    @comintel I talked to sprint and they told me my meid was active for just 5 days. I was very confused until I read your comment. Thanks for the save!

    I think I'll sell my 5. Is the iPhone 5s working on freedompop currently?
