UPDATED: 03/21/2015

          For those of you that have been eyeing up FreedomPops's free phone service but have been turned off by the lack of phone selection or ability to bring your own device, well today I have some good news for you.  FreedomPop has announced that they will now allow many more BYOD devices onto their network.  The new list includes all iPads and iPhones.  Also newly allowed are the HTC's One V7, One M7 and Desire 510.  The LG G2, Nexus 5 and Volt as well as Samsung Galaxy Mega, Prevail, and Rush, and the Motorola Moto G highlight some of the newly allowed devices. A complete list of allowed devices can be found here. (UPDATE: 03/21/2015 - Sprint's new policies should allow FreedomPop to activate many more devices now.  More than what is officially listed on the above link for list of allowed devices.  So if you are interested in their service, and want to know if your phone works, don't hesitate to try due to what you see in the list.)

          A bit to note.  If you are using their website to check your ESN or MEID you may at first be told your device is not allowed.  When I was previously testing out their service I had to enter the appropriate number several times before they told me service was available in my area and the device was allowed. I have a feeling at the time I was trying it out, since it was a beta service they may have randomly been allowing activations as opposed to allowing anyone to just sign up. It's also possible their system was experiencing a glitch. I assure all you readers out there I was not repeatedly making typos in entering those numbers.

          So what do you think of FreedomPop opening up their service to more devices? Does that make you want to give their service a try now?

Can my Coolpad Arise CDMA phones be activated on FreedomPop? I was running wifi
With non wifi on Sprint. These phones are new this year. I am trying to leave Scratch Wireless. Thanks for any responses.

I can’t say for sure, but you can check your device with them and find out right away.

They’ll ask for street address, email address and the IMEI number associated with your device. The website will instantly tell you if you can use it or not.

I’ve checked an older VM Galaxy Reverb MEID on both FreedomPop and RingPlus and both say it’s eligible for activation. FP just calls it a generic Samsung smartphone but RP actually says the model and all – “Congratulations, your device (Samsung VMU SAMSUNG M950 PLVSS950KT) can work on RingPlus!” (maybe it has to do with the unlocking law that goes into affect in the next few days?)

That’s interesting and very well could be. Often times phones on prepaid providers like VM were typically locked to those providers. It will be interesting to know if anyone else has success on other phones from other prepaid providers as well as ones that are not listed on the officially supported list.
