Is there some reason why SMS locator apps do not work with FreedomPop?

    I have downloaded 3 different SMS locator apps (Locate vis SMS, TrackLoc, and SMS Locator) to a Nexus 4 phone with a FreedomPop sim card. With these apps, I'm supposed to be able to send an sms from another phone to the Nexus 4 with a "locate" command, and the Nexus 4 is supposed to reply automatically with the GPS coordinates of the Nexus 4, and a link to its Google Maps position. Unfortunately, all 3 apps are not working with FreedomPop. The Nexus 4 receives the SMS with the command but does not reply with its location. I put in a sim from a different provider, and the apps then worked as they should. Is there some reason why FreedomPop does not work with these apps? Any fix?
