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.

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.
