Mine shows "You have not signed up for any services yet". So it looks like they didn't UPGRADE our service without us asking.

I did my SERVICE and PLAN downgrade on the website before they removed the "service downgrade button". Guess now people have to contact support to downgrade.

However upon returning when I re-installed my original (Canadian) SIM the Freedompop Messenger app is still trying to override my Voice Calls and presumably my Texting too. Is there anyway to disable this other than uninstalling the app?

Apologies if this has been asked before but I didn't find anything using the search tool.
You can just go to 'app menu' and 'stop' it from running. No need to uninstall.

I checked 5 lines and yeah, mine shows "You have not signed up for any services yet"

For the other two Global SIMs I have, I didn't bother checking because the card on file had expired. haha.

Luckily you can still change billing to PayPal (but not at sign-up) so I have FreedomPop off for recurring billing in PayPal so they can't charge me even if I don't downgrade service haha

Forgot to do that. I used my US paypal (didn't have to switch) for all three accounts but I did pay $5 x 5.

Well if they try to charge you and they can't, they might lock the account so you're still better off actually downgrading than leaving it as it is.

Has anyone ever purchased a refurbished phone from their store?
I paid extra for 1-2 days delivery.
Shipping Option: Rush ($16.99)

On February 7, I got the info that the phone was shipped. The tracking on FedEx has the info about estimated delivery still "Pending"

I purchased a refurbished LG G2. I had it delivered to a friend in the US.
It was in brand new condition, not a scratch.
I'm not sure if I just lucked out...

But remember, you can only use their phones in the US(they use the Sprint network), unless you get them unlocked after six months. But even then, a lot of their phones don't carry the frequency for other countries including Canada.

Depends where your US mailbox is. For me, it took less than 2 days for it to be shipped and arrived at my box in DE 4-5 days after that.

I had FP sims shipped to my Detroit postal box and it took 3 business days. Sims shipped to MyMallBox in Delaware take one week.

BTW - I had a MyMallBox post removed from the Freebies forum due to "It was all about referral codes" even though there were no referral codes in my post and I did not ask anyone to contact me about getting a referral code. My post explained how to get $5 + $5 in free shipping from MyMallBox which is a very good deal for us members. If you get a chance could you please look into that? It seemed very odd and arbitrary to me.

Clarification: FP usually ships the day after you place an order. So if you order today it will probably ship tomorrow and then take anywhere from 2-3 business days to about a week for FedEx to get it to your USA address.

I just had MyMallBox ship 2 sims (repackaged into one box) to Windsor for $3.66. Two weeks ago I had 3 sims shipped to the same address for $1.67. It appears MyMallBox shipping charges are a bit hit 'n miss or maybe prices have gone up.

My orders from FP have been marked by FP as shipped on one day but not actually picked up by FedEx until the next day. It seems that FP sends the info to FedEx and creates a shipping label but FedEx does not actually pick up the package until the following day. It then takes FedEx about 12 to 24 hours to update the estimated shipping date on their website tracking page.

Can I use my credit card to pay for the sim and change it when the account is created?

You can use a Canadian credit card to make your purchase with a USA shipping address. The amount is so low that the FP credit card processing does not verify your address. So use a USA mailing address and do not check "Different billing address".

Yes, you can change your billing method after your account is created.
