Freedompop, the same folks who have been bringing free talk, text, and data plans to Sprint-friendly phones one at a time, now has a new (awesome) offer: You can get the same plan on a Samsung Tab 3, or any Sprint-compatible iPad.
FreedomPop's crazy free voice, text, and data plan is awesome, but the one catch was that you had to buy in with a (sort of meh) $100 phone. Not anymore. If you have an old Sprint phone laying around, you might be able to get on the FreedomPop train without spending one single cent.
FreedomPop, promiser of free data, is finally launching the first actually free service plan into beta today. It comes with free texts, free minutes, and free data. All you have to do is front $100 for a phone.
US phone operator FreedomPop is now offering a 100% free cellphone plan that includes "200 free anytime minutes (FreedomPop to FreedomPop calls are unlimited), 500MB of free 4G data, and unlimited free texts every month." Additional minutes and data cost extra. The only catch: you have to use one of their cellphones.
We've been seeing a whole bunch of hungry little alternative service providers trying to cut into the big boys with low, low prices, but how about free? FreedomPop, the folks behind hotspots and routers that come with free data, just announced the first free wireless service plan. No, really. Free minutes, free…
You've only got so many options when it comes to home Internet. Don't like the folks who own the Internet-pipes in your neighborhood? Too bad. Well, FreedomPop is aiming to put another option on the table: a $89 4G router with free data built right in.
TechCrunch is reporting that FreedomPop, a company made by Skype founder Niklas Zennström, is working on creating a case for your iPhone that'll pull double duty as a mobile hotspot. Hmm... sounds interesting! Even more interesting, the case will pump out free 4G data.
