We’re happy to launch LTE FreedomPop tablets with phone capability and Free LTE Data, Voice, and Text. We’re now selling iPad mini and Samsung Tab 3 with free data plus expanding tablet functionality to include phone capabilities: a unique phone number, voice and texting. Specifically, users will be able to associate a unique phone number with any FreedomPop tablet and make free calls and texts. This functionality does not currently exist for tablets offered by large carriers, partially because of the potential to cannibalize high margin phone plans.
In addition to the popular iPad mini and Samsung Tab 3 tablets, users with existing LTE tablets can also move their existing tablets to FreedomPop and get the same 500 MBs of LTE data, 200 voice minutes and 500 texts absolutely free. Users can bring their own iPad or Tab device or purchase one from FreedomPop. The iPad mini will sell for $319 and the Samsung Tab 3 for $199.
We’re happy to announce our official expansion into LTE with the Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, and Samsung Victory and a new Unlimited Everything Plan for only $20. We’re also launching our newest free app: FreedomPop Free Voice and Text for Android that provides Free Calls, texts, and voicemail.
All new FreedomPop LTE phones will come with the same free service that hundreds of thousands of Americans already enjoy, which includes 500 MB of data, 200 voice calls and 500 texts free each month. Our new “Unlimited Everything” plan for $20 per month provides unlimited talk, text, and data. Tethering will also be included on certain FreedomPop LTE phones so that they can easily and affordably be used as hotspots. After 1GB of data has been used for the month, LTE speeds will be limited to 3G speeds.
The deal hungry moderator’s at Slickdeals did a great FreedomPop review on our Platinum Photon hotspot and Free Internet service last week. He actually got an incredible 9.86Mbps when positioning the device near a window. Get more tips and learn more on their blog: How to Get Free Internet Every Month – FreedomPop Review
On a budget and can’t pay for the monthly fees for a wifi hotspot? Freedompop could be your solution.
FreedomPop offers free wireless internet access for up to 500MB each and every month with the purchase of a hotspot. If you need more, you can easily find 10 Freedom Friends using this not so secret Slickdeals thread where tons of FreedomPop users have left their email address so you can connect, earn, and share. If that’s still not enough, upgrading is another option. 50% of FreedomPop users have opted into larger paid plans or services like Data Rollover. This is a great value for light to moderate internet users who need something on-the-go.
We’re happy to introduce the first free mobile service plans for the FreedomPop Apple iPhone. Since launching the world’s only free mobile phone service late last year on select Android devices, we are now adding the popular iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 models to our growing portfolio of smartphone service plans. We’re also announcing the launch a brand new iOS app, FreedomPop Free Voice and Text, which will provide any iOS device user 100% free voice, text, and voicemail. This allows any iPhone user stuck in an existing contract to save hundreds of dollars per year by downgrading their voice plans and leveraging FreedomPop’s free voice and text service directly from their existing phone.
Adding the iPhone and launching our iOS app allows us to deliver our free service to a market desperate for a break from high-cost plans. We will sell the iPhone 5 directly through our website for $349. Customers can bring their existing iPhone 4 device and activate on our website upon signing up for service. Both devices are offered the same low-cost, disruptive pricing plans as our other smartphones. The free plan will include 200 voice minutes, 500 text messages and 500 MBs of data per month. Unlimited voice, text and data plans will start at under $5 per month.
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.
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.”
