    Of the 3 listed phones, which ones (if any) allow simultaneous voice and data (using FreedomPop)?

    I have read that at least some models of the Galaxy S4 do NOT allow this,
    but don't know about the Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2.

    Ugh, I wish I could stop checking this forum for phone deals. I already have enough phones...

    I bought the S3 through Groupon Tuesday and already have a tracking number. I currently have an S3 I use with an expensive prepaid carrier. I use that carrier as the minutes and data don't expire as long as I keep the account active, but it's a pain constantly trying to make sure my data connection isn't on. Adding more time and data with that service is too pricey. I'll use the FreedomPop S3 as my main phone going forward, assuming the phone works ok, as that means less mental stress.

    It would be nice if y'all could stop posting phone deals so I could stop buying phones I don't truly need. :)

    For the Samsung S3, according to Groupon's Q&A re: Samsung S3 with Free Mobile-Phone Service:
    • This phone is locked to FreedomPop.

    • It can be unlocked to work with Sprint or any other Sprint MVNO.

    • It cannot be unlocked to work with GSM services, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or for international use.
    QUESTIONS:
    • Is this true for all phones bought specifically for use with FreedomPop?

    • If I bought a Sprint-compatible phone elsewhere, and used FreedomPop's BYOD feature,
      would that phone then become locked to FreedomPop?
