FreedomPop Tablets Launched: Get Free Talk, Text, and Data on Tablets

without comments

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.

without comments

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.

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.
