Cancel FreedomPop recurring $8.47 services

Recently I noticed that my trusty Nexus 5 on FreedomPop had started being billed $8.49 a month for services 🙁 The particular services were: FreedomPop Usage Alerts, FreedomPop Wifi Hotspot, and Visual Voicemail.

LG G3 Questions

LG G3 Questions: Hello, please excuse my ignorance. So if I have a T-Mobile SIM card which I am using in my phone right now and put it in a LG G3 phone for example will this work.

Google Find My Phone (even if Device Unavailable)

Google has been adding more action oriented features to their engine. One of the most useful is “find my phone”. If you have an Android phone you can try finding it here: https://www.google.com/search?q=find+my+phone Also, even if the map/screen says “Device Unavailable” you may still be able to “Ring” the phone… this will ring the phone for 5 minutes and this is exactly what I did this morning to find my phone (which was hiding in the covers) ;-).
