FCC Decision for the iPhone 4 Sleeve Expected by End of Month; Approval Would also Pave Way for iPhone 5 Version this Summer
The much anticipated iPhone 4 Sleeve from FreedomPop cleared its final hurdle this week. Testing has been completed and FreedomPop’s FCC report will be submitted within the next few days. As previously noted, FreedomPop’s 4G iPhone Sleeve is the first of its kind in the US and has caused some FCC approval issues that were first made public earlier this year by FierceWireless.
But the wait is almost over, and a decision by the FCC is expected by the end of April. Even better news for those users who have moved on to the iPhone 5, FreedomPop has been collaborating with FCC, so that iPhone 4 Sleeve can be quickly retrofitted to accommodate the iPhone 5 with minimal additional FCC testing. This means that FreedomPop should be able to get an iPhone 5 Sleeve to market this summer… assuming FCC approval comes in positively this month.
Because of the longer than anticipated wait, any FreedomPop user that pre-ordered the iPhone 4 Sleeve will be given an additional 2GB of Free 4G Data as a special thanks for their continued support and patience during this time.
