Customers have always hated being locked in the standard two-year cell phone contract, but did you know there’s a way to get mobile and data access completely for free? FreedomPop has been breaking the mold and providing totally free mobile and internet for over five years. They offer a variety of services including free cell phone service, free data access, and other low rate packages. Here’s what you need to know from our 2016 FreedomPop Review.
Free cell phone service would seem to be an impossible offer, but FreedomPop really does it. Running off the Sprint network, FreedomPop offers 500MB of 4G data, 200 minutes of talk time, and unlimited texting. The service is entirely free for one whole year with no sneaky contracts, cancellation, or other hidden fees. After one year of free service, you have the option to continue the exact same service for $10.99 per month without a contract.
If you need more data, you simply pay $10 to “top up” and you’re good to go. You can also refill your data for $0.02 per MB or earn free data by inviting your friends. There are also surveys, downloads, and other offers you can complete to add free data to your account.
For only $5 a month, you can use the FreedomPop wifi-calling packing and gain access to over 10 million Wi-Fi hotspots across the country. There’s also an unlimited talk and text plan with 500 MB of data for $10.99 or you can double your data for $20.
FreedomPop allows you to use your own compatible Sprint mobile device or choose from their huge selection of phones and tablets. You can sign up, monitor, and modify all of your FreedomPop account needs through their website 24/7. FreedomPop is definitely breaking the mold by providing us with truly free internet and mobile access.
Founded in 2012, FreedomPop is based out of Los Angeles, California and is the world’s first 100% free mobile provider. The company has raised over $100 million from a number of investors including Skype, DCM, and Mangrove Capital. They are committed to providing free mobile services the same way companies like Skype, Dropbox, and Spotify provides free voice, free data, and free music. FreedomPop is currently available in the U.S. and U.K. and planning expansion throughout a dozen other countries this year.
