    Nice timing – iPhone 8/8+ comes out tomorrow and is Band 66 compliant.

      Careful, so far we’ve found that the unlocked iPhone 8 has the same issues on Freedom’s LTE network as other unlocked devices like the OnePlus 5. LTE works, but making a call or otherwise dropping off LTE leaves you on 3G until you reboot or toggle on/off Airplane Mode.

      Fair play – I imagine Freedom’s Networking/Software Engineers are getting ready for this very contingency. The iPhone 8/8+/X is the only phone with sufficient demand to push Freedom Mobile as the “next big carrier”. It isn’t the One Plus 5 or the Note 8 or any other unlocked Band 66-compliant Android phone that will push Freedom to accommodate its future user base – it will be Apple and this year’s iPhones.

      My $0.02’s worth.

      That would be Freedom’s mistake to make, because like it or not, Android users do outnumber IOS users.

    • Brandon Arneson

      That’s very true. I prefer android over iOS and so do a lot of other people.

      Absolutely, we’re in the process!

    Reps are not able to change existing cutsomers to these plans in store, don’t waste your time asking them.

    you have to call in to get it changed. I did it 2 weeks ago.

      Did they change it without any hassles?

    • Kevin Riley

      Pretty much, said it was a one time loyalty change. I said thank you and hung up, lol.

    • rPacific

      I tried…they said for new customers only. 🙁
