FreedomPop was founded in 2012 in the United States and now also offers its mobile phone services to the United Kingdom. This company is particularly interesting because they offer voice calls, text messages and 4G data for free.
To find out if you and your current mobile phone device are eligible for FreedomPop services, you simply enter your post code/zip code on their website.
The first option offered is a sim only deal. Sim cards are compatible for all phone types, as long as the phone is unlocked. It is possible to have 200 megabytes of data, 200 minutes and 500 text messages per month for free. If, on trial of this plan, you do not have enough of a certain element, it is possible to change to another one of five plans which are also offered. These plans are paid for, but still have low prices ranging from $19.99 to $34.99 per month.
FreedomPop also offer data only SIM cards, ranging in price from free every month for 200 mega bytes, to $33.99 per month for four gigabytes of data. Wireless internet for the home (or anywhere!) is also an option, beginning with the same pattern: a package which gives 500 megabytes of 4G internet for free each month and, amongst other options, the sixth and maximum amount is ten gigabytes for $74.99 per month, for 4G LTE.
Similar deals are also available in packages which comprise a tablet or phone. The tablet is the Alcatel one touch pixi 7.0, and the phone is the ZTE Prestige model, which are both available for free (with only a one-time activation cost of $39.99 and $19.99 respectively). It is also possible to buy other tablets, mobile phones, including top-range smartphones, and broadband devices to use with Freedom Pop.
It is possible to buy FreedomPop devices from various online retailers. These include amazon, kmart, sears and TigerDirect.
The company also offer a range of other interesting services, including family mobile phone plans and business services. Particularly of note is that it is possible to call and text, in an unlimited capacity, between FreedomPop phones.
