We just recently launched LTE services with a Free 500MB LTE plan that is getting some seriously awesome FreedomPop Reviews from users all over Facebook and Twitter. Here’s our favorite Facebook FreedomPop Review:
“Got my lte mifi, it works great! I just take it with me when I need data. My iphone bill is now less than $10 a month!”- Cheryl, Facebook
FreedomPop is happy to announce that our newest mission to bring Free Talk, Text and Data to all Americans is off to a great start. As promised, we are working tirelessly to address the initial beta feedback to improve our product.

For improved call quality over 3G, just download the latest version of our Messaging App in Google Play:
- Either by opening up Google Play App in your Freedom Phone or using this link: http://bit.ly/16qyT7u
- Click the “Update” button on the top left hand side to begin the download

- You can also toggle the “Auto Update” feature by clicking on the Menu Button while in the Google Play Store Page for our Messaging App

Once again we want to thank the best early adopters ever for participating in Freedom Phone Beta! Our efforts to give you the best experience and service will never stop. We’ll continue to provide updates through our App in the Google Play Store.
We did want to let you know that we’ve read your feedback and found that some of you may be experiencing problems with your FreedomPop LTE hotspot when switching from 3G to LTE in available coverage areas.
Here’s a tip to help ensure the Best FreedomPop LTE Experience:
If you are experiencing issues with your LTE connection and are only connecting to 3G, then there is an easy fix. To ensure you get LTE where available, go to the menu on your device’s LCD screen and under the “mobile network” option, select “LTE only”. This will force your device to connect to LTE. If you are in 3G and LTE areas, you can select “LTE preferred” option.

“FreedomPop is a great choice for road warriors since you are not limited to accessing your internet from home. Take the wireless hotspot with you and use your internet anywhere.”- Techbargains

We’ve received hundreds of positive FreedomPop reviews about the FreedomPop Overdrive Pro was our first 4G/3G device that brought FreedomPop’s services Nationwide using Sprint’s 3G Network. The Overdrive Pro boasts an impressive LCD screen with real time information. It’s sleek and mobile design weighs just over 3 ounces and can connect up to 8 wifi enabled devices to a secure and fast 4G network. When you’re not in a good 4G coverage area, always feel connected with Sprint’s Nationwide 3G Network. The Overdrive Pro also has a removable battery that will keep you online for about 6 hours or 4 hours with active usage on a full charge.
We’ve collected a few FreedomPop reviews from the press and from our users:
“The best part about the Overdrive Pro is 3G support, as it allows you to use the modem virtually across the country. That means you won’t have to worry about staying connected when you travel. You can’t say that about 4G, which has a much more limited coverage area.”- Alex Colon, PC Mag, Freedom Spot Overdrive Pro- FreedomPop Review
FreedomPop reviews from real customers on Facebook and Slickdeals:
“Got the Overdrive over the weekend it’s AWESOME! I have intermittent 4g service so the 3G fallback is great. Thanks Freedom Pop!”- Tracy C, Facebook
“I just got my FreedomPop Overdrive. 500mb of 3G and 4G for just $3.99/month, and it has better coverage than my at&t 4G iPhone. Definitely worth the wait, I love FreedomPop!”- Brandon Counts, Facebook
“I’ve had one for at least 6 months and it’s great for traveling. I use it in locations that charge for wifi or where wifi is not available. I also work from home and have used it as a backup connection one stormy day when my cable modem wasn’t working. The speeds are great and fortunately I’ve never gone over the 500MB limit.”- Quest4dollars, Slickdeals.net

FreedomPop started with a simple mission, to ensure every American has unprecedented access to free Internet. To date, we have given away over 1 Billion MBs of absolutely free data – in fact, over half of our users don’t pay us a penny.
As more and more people join FreedomPop, we admit that we have struggled to keep up with customer service issues and our response times have slipped. We want to apologize to our users foremost for admittedly less than timely customer service. The good news is we are listening and in an effort to address this feedback, we have recently ramped up the customer service department, moved the entire operation local, and adjusted the T&C’s to better address any policy criticisms per below:
- “Active Status Fee”-We used to pass on a .99 cent network fee to keep an inactive account active on our partner network each month. The reason we did that is because we actually get charged by our partners, so we were hoping our users could just turn on their device once per month so we’d all avoid that nominal cost. However, it has caused more confusion than it’s worth so we have suspended this charge going forward.
- “Response time” -We have admittedly slipped as new devices and more users have increased the number of tickets coming in. However, we are doubling down on customer service headcount and bringing 100% onshore. We will now aim to address 100% of inquiries within 48 hours, without fail.
- “Data rounding”-There have been complaints that our data usage rounds up to the nearest MB vs KB. This was for visual representation only, i.e. we were not actually rounding but just displayed it that way. To avoid any confusion, we now display in KBs so there is no perception of rounding.
- “Top-up”-Users who go over their plan allotment can continue using the Internet on a pay-as-you-go basis. If the “auto top up” option is selected, we will automatically top up your pay-as-you-go credit balance with $10 when you hit your plan limit so your service is not interrupted. If you’d rather manually manage, we provide the ability to easily turn auto top up off.
- “Returns”-If you want to return your device within our return window, we will give you your money back. We do ask you pay for return shipping. This may appear frugal on our part, but we’d rather push the boundaries on how much free data we give away than how much free shipping we give away.
- “Delayed device shipments” -Demand for new devices has been ridiculous and we have been on backorder for several weeks. The good news is we have received new inventory and will start shipping this week. There has been additional concern that backordered users will have less time to use extra free data provided in the 1st month. This is not true. Plan period will start after the shipping date (not the purchase date).
We want to thank everyone for your patience and your feedback to date. We are starting a revolution and we want to keep hearing from you – whether it’s positive or negative – as your feedback is going to make FreedomPop even better for everyone. Thanks again for your support.

Mashable, FreedomPop Offers Free Mobile Service
Weighing in at a mere 2.1 ounces with a width of 2.6”, a height of 2.6”, and a depth of 0.5”, the FreedomPop Photon is our favorite little guy, as well as one of our best selling devices. It will connect up to 8 devices simultaneously to the internet via wifi. One a full charge, the Photon will work for up to 6 hours and get speeds up to 12Mpbs down and 1.5Mpbs up on Clearwire’s Wimax network. Don’t be fooled. This little guy packs a huge punch, and positive FreedomPop Photon Reviews prove it. It was also recently named one of the Best Mobile WiFi Hospots by Mashable.
Here’s a few fun things some awesome subscribers have been saying so far in FreedomPop Reviews: Photon Edition:
It’s made of soft touch black plastic, with matte black grilles along the side. It’s attractive, in a minimalist way, and small enough to slip into any pocket.- Alex Colon, PC Mag: FreedomPop Freedom Spot Photon
“The setup process couldn’t be easier… You turn on the Photon 4G by holding the power button, give it a minute to start up, and then connect to it with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or whatever other WiFi-enabled device the way you would connect to any access point.”-Michael Kwan, Mobile Mag: FreedomPop Photon 4G Mobile Hotspot Review
I’ve been loving Freedompop. I live and work in Baltimore, so coverage is great. My hotspot actually saved my tail during hurricane Sandy when we were ordered to work from home and my Comcast internet went down. Miraculously, Clearwire’s towers were still up and I was able to work and get paid thanks to this device- David Flores: Mobile Mag Comment
Not only can you buy a Photon from Amazon, but there are some great first-hand user FreedomPop Reviews: Photon Edition there too:
“This is an amazing little device. Although it’s much smaller, thinner, and lighter than a phone, the battery life is impressive: nearly six hours of continuous use. In comparison, my smartphone’s battery drains out within an hour or two when I use it as a wifi hotspot”.- Joshua H, Amazon
Facebook is another great place to read FreedomPop Photon Reviews:
My Photon is working great, there really should be a point of reference for how small these are in every official photo, like a credit card. ITS TINY! love it and it still runs the same 6 hrs per charge my Clear iSpot does. GREAT work guys!- Brad Apelgren, Facebook
