freedompop 250u
« on: July 02, 2014, 01:10:20 PM »
I am curious to know if anyone has tried the freedompop 250u. It's essentially the same device as the Sprint 250u, which is on the compatibility list. Freedompop allows 500mb of free data. It may be worth it, if you do not have long commutes.

It works!!!! I waited until freedompop gave away the 250U for free. I did not keep track of the exact steps be here is what I did.

1. Get freedompop 250U and freedompop accout setup.
2. Download the freedompop sprintsv software.
3. Install the software. A reboot is required.
4. Once installed, plug in the 250U. Windows will do some driver installation.
5. Then I launched the app just to test connectivity.
6. Go to your car.
7. power on the PAS. DO NOT PLUG IN THE 250U UNTIL THE INTERFACE IS FULLY UP.
8. Plug in the 250U.
9. The PAS will recognize the device. Now, I cannot remember the exact prompt, but I chose the option to choose from a list of existing access points.
10. Choose your country, ie, USA.
11. Choose Sprint.
12. Enjoy your free 200MB from freedompop.
