Slash your phone bill by 90% – Get an HTC Evo 4G with 100% Free Talk, Text, and 4G Data

freedompop-htc-evo-4g (2)

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.

    this is a horrible deal. First, WIMAX is not 4G and Not only are you on one of the crappiest networks that is outdated but you are on a 3 or 4 year old phone. This might be good if your like 80 years old and hardly use the phone and don’t require a fast connection. Other wise, I would rather go pay 30 dollars a month for tmobiles 100min, unlimited text and 5GB of lte a month plan.

    • What?

      Is this like an ancient T Mobile plan? Starting T Mobile plans begin at $50/mo, which include 1 GB of 4G LTE data and unlimited talk and text. If you want 5GB, it’s $70. Your plan would be great, you know, if it were still available.

        They have that plan available only at Walmart I believe.

      • hp420

        It’s only available to new customers online and only if you bring your own device.

    HTC Evo 4G sucks tbh

  • Sean

    It was a great phone 4 years ago. I had one, but even kids have newer phones than this, and yeah, nobody used Wimax except Sprint, and they killed that off awhile ago

  • Not Sean

    I tried to take advantage of this for my mom, who is a light user and got a not available in your area yet message, but we’ll let you know. I couldn’t even get that far without giving them an email and an address first.
    The coverage map says 4g LTE available.
    They did offer a deal on a refurbished wireless wifi deal. I don’t need that, I can Mobile HotSpot with my T-mobile date (at least for well over the 500mb they were going to give for free).

  • donger

    Interesting but a old outdated phone?

  • netboy

    i bought a used samsung galaxy s3 from ebay hoping to activate it on freedompop, it said phone not supported! WTF.
    i also have a 29.99$ freedompop hotspot bought from amazon.
    it works great in San Francisco/Oakland area, got excellent signals.
    getting around 7mb down and 1mb up, not bad on WiMax.
    yeah. i heard they going to kill off WiMax with LTE, but WiMax is still up and running maybe until end of 2015 ?

  • donger

    Price is great, phone is meh.

  • Chris

    Kind of misleading…

    It says the unlimited only applies to the first month… after that you get 200 minutes & 500 texts each month.
