FreedomPop is now offering 100% Free Talk, Text, and Data on Android Smartphones. Founded a little over two years ago by Skype co-founder Niklas Zennstrom with the idea that “The Internet is a Right, and not a Privilege.” Since then, it’s added coverage with Sprint’s Nationwide network. Deal hunters have described the small carrier as a great way to save money every month. Consumers can save up to 90% on their smartphone bills, which is something larger carriers just can’t replicate.
You might remember that we previously featured a deal for a mobile hotspot from FreedomPop. As I just mentioned, though, FreedomPop recently added smartphones to its lineup, and so we are partnering up with it again for a deal on its smartphone offerings.
The device in question is the HTC Evo 4G, which may be an older device, but is also worth a look for a light smartphone user that would like to save hundreds of dollars a year on a smartphone plan. For only $10.99 per month, you get unlimited voice and texts. Compared to Verizon’s ALLSET prepaid offering that costs $45 per month, FreedomPop is a steal. With this promotion, you can get unlimited talk and text plan for free for the first month. As with all of FreedomPop’s plans, there is no contract involved, and if you find that you won’t use more than 200 minutes or 500 texts in a month, you can always drop down to the free plan before that first month is up. That’s 200 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of data for FREE each month. These plans and services are available on Sprint’s 3G and 4G WiMAX network. You can check their coverage map here.
Something to keep in mind about all of the FreedomPop plans is that once you get within 100MB of your data limit for the month, you’ll automatically “top-up” with 1GB of data for $10 unless you turn that setting off. That isn’t a bad price by any means, especially since the $10 is added as credit to your account and never expires. If you stick with the free plan and go over your 200 minutes or 500 texts, you will be charged 1 cent per minute/text.
Does FreedomPop sound like something that might work for you or someone you know? Our special offer this time around includes the refurbished HTC Evo 4G, one month of unlimited talk and text, 500MB of data and free shipping on your order, all for just $79.
