Ultra Savings on Cell Service Through FreedomPop
If you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to regular cell phone carriers, take a look at FreedomPop. This nifty app can rid you of fee-laden service plans of common cell phone companies. It can be used as a free service or you can upgrade to some very low-cost options. Currently, they support all versions of Android OS up to 4.4.4 – (KitKat). They also have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) support coming soon.
FreedomPop has three basic plans. First and foremost is their Free Service which provides you with 200 voice minutes, 500 text messages, and 500 MB of data. The service is all done through VOIP so they can take advantage of the data portion of the Sprint network without hassling with their text and phone streams. This particular plan also works on FreedomPop Wi-Fi hotspots which get 500 MB of data free each month.
The second is an extremely affordable option to upgrade to FreedomPop’s $5 plan. This plan uses WIFI HotSpots instead of cell towers to make your text, phone and data connections. It won’t work while driving or out in a rural area with no HotSpots. But it could be a great plan for kids or anyone who lives in a metropolitan area full of WIFI connections.
Third is the very popular Unlimited Plan. This gives the unlimited text, talk, and data for $19.99 a month. Compared to most current cell phone carriers that is a steal.
FreedomPop uses the Sprint network to provide their coverage, so anywhere that Sprint or Virgin Mobile or Boost have coverage, FreedomPop does too.
Another advantage to FreedomPop is that they offer devices that you can purchase with their service. You can also bring your own Sprint mobile device. They are constantly increasing the number of devices that are compatible.
Mobile devices have a range of prices so check out the app, for details but currently, there are six tablets for purchase with the FreedomPop service. These tablets include the iPad Mini, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, the Galaxy Tab 4, the LG G Pad and the Freedom Tab Liberty.
They provide several different plans for this service as well. Areas that have 4G LTE coverage can be used for home internet by buying a Hub Burst it connects to the LTE network and gives you 12/Mbps internet service. That’s pretty standard DSL service which is pretty great considering that 1 GB per month is free.
