PV Placing your first phone call using a FreedomPop device

The first phone call you make is important to the setup process. It allows incoming and outgoing calls to work properly. 

When you first make a call, make sure to dial a number that is not running on VoIP technology (Google Voice, Hangouts, Magic Jack and WhatsApp numbers are all using VoIP). You'll need to call a standard cellular or landline phone number based within the U.S.

International calling requires you to dial 1 first, you can make international phone calls after the setup process. 

You may also need to send or receive a text message to get texting services started. Make sure you are not texting a VoIP number. 


Having trouble with phone calls?

Please note, the FreedomPop application is not needed with this SIM card and may, in fact, prevent your phone from working properly. If you delete the FreedomPop application, your text message history will be lost, so if you'd like to retain your history, disable the app instead. Complete the following steps.

  • Open your phone's Settings Application
  • Tap on Applications (may also be labeled Mobile Applications)
  • Search for the FreedomPop application 
  • Tap on it and then tap on Force Stop

This will turn the app off and stop it from running in the background. Now you can open up your phone's regular calling application and use it to make and receive phone calls.
