Enforce your Privacy- Announcing the FreedomPop Privacy Phone

without comments

New FreedomPop Privacy Phone comes with built in VPN, anonymous voice and payment by Bitcoin 

Announcing the FreedomPop Privacy Phone- a smartphone designed specifically to protect privacy. The phone nicknamed “The Snowden Phone” is in response to growing frustrations regarding privacy infringement, as well as phone call and internet monitoring. “Large carriers don’t have the flexibility, desire or creativity to invest in privacy. In fact, some companies have been compensated for handing over consumer’s data. We don’t agree with this approach and felt it was up to us to create a truly private mobile phone service at an affordable price.”

The Privacy Phone is priced at $189 on FreedomPop’s website. It comes built with privacy software that will encrypt calls and texts over FreedomPop’s VoIP network. All application and internet browsing is also encrypted using a 128-bit VPN (virtual privacy network). The same encryption used to protect credit card transactions.

FreedomPop Review: Freedom Spot Photon Platinum Edition

without comments

After absolutely stunning FreedomPop reviews for the Photon, it’s no wonder that our exclusive Platinum edition received similar praise. Check out all our previous FreedomPop reviews of the Freedom Spot Photon on our blog and website.

Brutal winter storms have been hitting much of the US and William L was able to stay connected and safe using our services during a recent storm. He posted his experience to our new Community Forum:

“Just wanted to say that Freedompop worked well during the recent power, internet, and landline outages during the recent ice storm that affected the Southeast.

We were able to use the pda tether app to stay online and maintain communications. Even though we use the free service . It worked extremely well given the circumstances.”

Our mission is to ensure everyone’s connected. We have a side motive as well: to disrupt the bloated wireless industry where a couple guys like AT&T and Verizon are making tens of billions in profit. Our revolutionary Freedom Phone service as definitely captured a lot of attention in the news lately on sites like Forbes and Digital Trends.

Freedom Phone Update

without comments

We’re absolutely thrilled to announce one of our most successful launches yet for our revolutionary new Beta Freedom Phone. In fact, our phone promotion definitely captured a lot of attention, so much so we had a much bigger back order than anticipated.

That said, we expected to do hundreds of orders, not tens of thousands and kitting these phones proved to take a little longer than anticipated. But the good news is that we’ve automated the process and are banging through back orders now. In addition, we will be working through the holidays to make sure that your order gets shipped as soon as it can.

For you patience users who have waited longer than the anticipated 2 weeks are receiving an extra 1GB of data on us, as a special thank you.

If you have any other questions or concerns with the Freedom Phone please visit our phone support page, www.freedompop.com/support/phone or email our team here.

Connect up to 10 WiFi enabled devices in seconds to stream, share, or Facebook with your friends and family without those annoying buffer interruptions.

Initial Beta Improvements for Freedom Phone Evo Design 4G

without comments

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.

Good news is that we have already made improvements on two of the biggest initial issues regarding the Freedom Phone: Call Quality over 3G and Battery Life.

For improved call quality over 3G, just download the latest version of our Messaging App in Google Play:

  1. Either by opening up Google Play App in your Freedom Phone or using this link: http://bit.ly/16qyT7u
  2. Click the “Update” button on the top left hand side to begin the download
  • For the best results, make sure Wi-Fi is turned on (under “Settings”) and connected to your home WiFi
  • 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

If you are experiencing a shortened battery life for your Evo Design 4G:

First off, let us know if you want a new battery free of charge. Just email customer support with a valid shipping address.

also,  below are some tips to immediately reduce battery power

1) Connect your device to wifi at home (which lessons the power consumption from 3G and 4G antennas)

2) Reduce the Brightness of your Screen

For a complete list of ways to improve your battery life, check out our Freedom Phone support page: http://bit.ly/15YmhlD

There’s also outside resources online that already exist for the Evo Design 4G. Feel free to research battery saving tips on your own. Here are a few that we’ve found to be helpful:

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.

Pro-Tip: How to Ensure the Best FreedomPop LTE Experience

without comments

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.

Thanks again to everyone for their feedback, and we appreciate your support! Have a good one!
