FreedomPop might be the perfect antidote to sky-high phone bills, saving subscribers about $1,000 per year on service. For those on a tight budget, FreedomPop even offers free wireless service. Read on to learn how FreedomPop works and see if the savings make sense for you.
FreedomPop is a wireless company that piggybacks on Sprint’s nationwide 3G and 4G networks, which means it doesn’t have to spend billions of dollars building out its own nationwide networks. You can expect to get the same quality of service as a FreedomPop subscriber as you would as a Sprint subscriber.
Right now FreedomPop is offering a pre-owned LG Volt Android smartphone for just $49.99, 75% off the phone’s MSRP. The phone comes with a one-month trial of FreedomPop’s Unlimited Talk & Text + 1GB of data plan, which is normally priced at $19.99 per month. If you want to save a lot of money, you can switch over to FreedomPop’s Basic plan after the trial is over and pay exactly $0.00 per month, so long as you don’t go over 200 minutes, 500 texts or 500MB of data. Free shipping is included in the $49.99 price tag.
If you like to talk and text a lot, but want to save more money, FreedomPop’s Unlimited Talk/Text Annual plan is just $6.67 per month and comes with 500MB per month. That plan costs just $79.99 per year. That’s less than some carriers charge per month for a single phone line.
If you can keep your smartphone connected to WiFi or keep a tab on your mobile data usage, FreedomPop could be a good choice for you.
If the LG Volt or FreedomPop’s current crop of budget phones aren’t for you, you can bring your own device to the network. Sprint-compatible phones such as the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 6s work on FreedomPop. Click here to see if FreedomPop’s services are available in your neighborhood.
