    Does using fp sip credentials via non fp app (sip app) still count towards use? Calling one fp number from another. Both accounts considered 'in use'?

    I bet they're doing it to inflate the number of active users

    . Friends bonus is conferred at cycle start. If acct is suspended at cycle start, once awakened, it loses all of its Friends bonus for that entire cycle. This is important, since it's not a viable option to let your SIMs "sleep" for non-use, and expect to wake them to be used on demand. You need a keep-alive method.

    . In the same vein, if a Friend is suspended in mid-cycle, that Friend's bonus stays with you until your cycle ends.

    . Friends bonus is also conferred (one-time) when you get new Friends. Good workaround if you find your SIM stripped of its Friends bonus.

    . Have 20-30 Friends to minimize chance of Friends count dropping below 10.

    . Check acct after cycle start to ascertain full allotment.

    Note: If a suspended acct is awakened, it may again be suspended in 1-2 days unless you also get new phone number for acct.
    THANKS for the info!

    @aenews: what say you to this?
    Hard to say. It could very well be that policy has changed. It was still 20MB earlier even when FAQ's did not mention a separate Top-Up limit for SIM's. It still appears that accounts with Top-Up disabled still can use 680MB without getting data disabled. Whereas for Sprint devices, data will be disabled after 900MB. Of course there's the two hour or so reporting delay.

    So, I had this brilliant idea of sharing 20MB from each of my FP accounts to one of my Freedom Friends (FF) to see if that would help keep my account from being deactivated. Well, of course, each of my FF already receives the max 500MB from THEIR FF pool, so that doesn't work!

    Now I'm wondering about unfriending all of my FF from one or two of my FP Global SIMs to have an account or two that doesn't receive any FF automatic data so I can gift 20MB from my other FP SIMs.

    I don't think there is a mechanism to "unfriend".

    The mechanism to renew or cancel invites does not work either.
