What do you think when someone first offers you something for ‘free’? What’s the catch, right? Well, the team at FreedomPop believe that you should get what you need for free and only pay when you’ve decided that you want more. FreedomPop is a ‘freemium’ cell phone carrier that has gained massive amounts of traction thanks to their core service: the FreedomPop plan. However, many people still remain skeptical about such a thing as a free phone service. Is it worth getting into? Let’s take a look at why FreedomPop is turning the page on the world of mobile phones.
FreedomPop was a something of a gimmick start up out of Los Angeles only a couple of years ago. Yet, somehow the company has continued to grow and grow and now they are one of the biggest mobile carriers in the United States. The reason that FreedomPop grew so quick was because of their core program, a deal so good that people just had to try it in order to believe it. The core FreedomPop offering includes 500 MB of mobile 4G data, unlimited texting, and 200 minutes of voice chat. These limitations may not seem like much but they come completely free to any subscriber without any sort of contract or catch. You will only ever pay if you choose to upgrade your plan or if you go over your limits.
What makes FredomPop so special is that they are more than just a gimmick. Users who decide that they like the core service can upgrade to the ‘premium plan‘ which includes unlimited talk and text as well as up to 2GB of mobile data. The price for this premium plan is just $19.99. Compare that price to any of the other major providers that are out there and you will find that it is, well, better than most.
Still, customers need more than just a solid and affordable phone plan — right? FreedomPop has gotten into the game of selling hardware and now they are partnered up with Sprint phones as well. If you have your own Sprint device you can go straight to FreedomPop and activate it with the core plan, no fuss and no headache. Otherwise you can purchase a refurbished or new phone straight from the company. With continued success we see FreedomPop challenging even the best carriers around for the top spot in the market.
