    Also, lol at the butthurt, learn to read people. MUO ain't selling out or shilling anything, they pointed out at the very beginning that this is an advertisement.

    Got my wife one since her old phone broke. The phone she got was $50 and does the job. FreedomPop plan only costed a penny to activate and runs off of Sprint. The service sucks sometimes, but she also activated Google Voice on the phone and uses that as her main number since we're almost always on Wi Fi. Whenever she's not connected, she turns her cell data on and can use her FreedomPop number. Not a bad deal at all.

    FreedomPop makes money as a "freemium" service, btw, just like a lot of gaming apps. You can try out other services or sign up for trials and you can earn more minutes/texts/data a month. Never bothered with it though.

    So yeah, basically if a loved one needs a phone with service but will barely use it (or will use Google Voice over it), I'd highly suggest getting a FreedomPop phone. Also, make sure you do your research. There is an option automatically checked to "top off" your account from your credit card if you run out of minutes. Disable this asap.

    I'd just like to know, if I keep the Everything plan for $19.99 per month, if I can occasionally use the tethering app for my laptop when I:m not near a wi-fi hotspot without incurring additional costs, fees, expense, etc. ???? I haven't received a reply from FreedomPop after sending them a support request a few days ago.

    The free phone is BS. $100 for the first month for a $20 service means you're paying $80 for the phone. Plus these two comments do not add up at all:

    "...they’ll even throw in a certified pre-owned Samsung Galaxy SIII for you!"

    "Paying just $100 for a phone and a free month of service is a great deal, so you have nothing to lose! " Yes you do. $100.

    I am copying here from their FAQs:

    "Are there any unlimited data plans?
    FreedomPop now offers an Unlimited Everything plan to new phone users. This includes unlimited data, texts, and voice minutes for just $19.99/mo. This plan will open up to existing phone users, shortly.
    We do not currently offer an unlimited data plan for mobile or home users. However, it is possible to earn additional data by connecting with friends through our Freedom Friends feature and by participating in our Partner Promotions and Offers. "

    I don't get it "This includes unlimited data, texts, and voice minutes for just $19.99/mo. " and "We do not currently offer an unlimited data plan for mobile or home users." What gives? Do they offer unlimited data or not?

    Since it is LTE, does that mean it uses the ATT towers?

    Thank you

      Many carriers use LTE, so AT&T isn't the only one. I found the answer on FreedomPop's about me page:

      "FreedomPop's high speed wireless internet service runs across Sprint's LTE network, 4G WiMax and 3G CDMA networks."

      Hope this helps!

    I don't think I have ever read such a shill while the author retains editorial independence. It is wrong in all its factual details. I have an unlocked phone and a month to month contract with Cricket. They are a subsidiary of AT&T so use the same lines. For $50 I get unlimited calling and texts plus 3 MB of data. I can cancel with no penalty. Beat that advertising boy!

    My Dear Ben Stegner, I thank you for putting
    "This post was made possible by FreedomPop" at the very beginning of this article so I knew I would miss nothing if I didn't read it. Many sponsored web articles often only tell you this at the end.
    I am also especially thankful that MuO authors are putting
    "Those of us in the United States" at the beginning of articles that are no use to UK readers ...
    Here in the UK we have Giff Gaff and others who will give you cheap one month only contracts if you want them. Sadly, all the big names keep buying each other. Soon all of Europe will be beholden to a couple of massive carriers, just like in the States.

      Ed, maybe when you turn 73, you’ll have enough smarts to know when a deal is a deal!
      An article posted here about a FREE smartphone is NOT a deal when one sees what they have to BUY in order to get it. AND THAT is NOT a deal, but an advertising scam ! Companies today are like the old adage of “ a fool is born every minute and two to take him (fleece him).”
      No need to berate another person’s strong opinions. So how come you haven’t bought all of the Freedom Pro’s, since U think it’s a deal, eh ?

        Bud. I am 70 years old and this is no bull. This is what was said upfront. "That’s right, FreedomPop is a 100% free mobile plan. It’s the first of its kind in the U.S. and truly lives up to its promises. You can get month-to-month mobile coverage without ever paying a single cent, except for the device itself." Notice quotation marks!

        Clear enough? you buy the phone and get free service (everything) for the first month. If you decide to get the everything plan it costs 19.99 a month'

        If you decide to keep the free plan, it costs nothing!

        I have been using it for almost a year now, and love it. It beats the hell out of paying $80.00 to $ 100.00 a month. If you can't understand this, then forget about it. It' your loss.

      I don't know if FreedomPop is a scam or not. I do know, however that nowhere in this article does it state that you can get a free smartphone. The title of the article says "Free Phone Plan"...not "Free Phone". Read before you rant.

    Don't fall for it! They could not pay me $19.99 a month to have the service.
    A former customer of FP myself. They booked my credit card on file after i cancelled the paid plan and changed to the free plan. RUN, RUN RUN far away from FreedomPop

      Barry, I assume that these minutes are good for any calls, but you might want to check with the company before proceeding.

      Hey Barry, FreedomPop does offer International Plans, including 100 Minutes of international calling completely free each month. You can also get a Global Virtual Number, which allows you to select a local number in the country. This way, anyone in that country who calls you won't need to worry about international calling fees.

    There are much more to cell service than price.
    Service area. Quality. Are some major ones for me. ACT NOW. not me.
    I'll let others take the bait, then I'll review recommendations of this service.

      Look. there may be an occasional setback, but for "FREE" Sprint service, perhaps you can look past a few problems from a fast growing up and coming company..
