Hi there, guys. I need some tips on blocking that device. If I'm not mistaken it is able to connect 4G Wi-Max networks with it and surf the net almost for free, how to block it?
Many thanks in advance!

You're absolutely right, that device makes it possible for iOS users to surf the net almost for free. Buying that device will give you a free 500 MB per month traffic. If you would like more – you'll probably have to pay. It is compatible both with 4G LTE and 4G Wi-Max wireless networks. Also we should mention that those cases are available for preorder right now.
It is pretty easy to use that particular device. You'll have to put your iPhone into that case, and set up it's connections as a priority one. Than FreedomPop will take care of the rest. By the way, right now those cases are avaliable for iPhone only, but the company plans to launch the same product for Android devices too. That Wi-Max friendly case is really popular sue to the fact that iPhone 5 has no support for Wi-Max because Apple considers it to be a “failed experiment”.
You should know that a simple mobile phone jammer will be probably useless against internet access that grants that device. It's because your mobile phone and that device uses different frequencies, while cell phone uses 850/1900 for texting and voice calls, 875 MHz for 4G LTE and 2100 for 3G. That Wi-Max friendly case uses 2500-2700 MHz, so in order to block it you will require very specific kind of a signal blocker. You'll need powerful 4G jammer. It will surely do the trick.
Thanks for your question, I hope I've managed to help!
