FreedomPop brings free mobile service to the masses
In honor of its first anniversary, hybrid carrier FreedomPop is offering free mobile phone service for life. Every month, 500MB of data, 500 text messages and 200 minutes of calls will be available at no charge. Customers can upgrade to unlimited voice and unlimited texting for $10.99 a month which is a savings of 80% to 90% from other name brand carriers, saving consumers as much as $1000 a year.

The service will be available on FreedomPop's HTC Evo Design smartphone, which will be available for $99. That already is a 65% discount. Freedom Pop says that it will offer customers more choices later this year with a selection of popular Android models. Stephen Stokols, FreedomPop's CEO and co-founder, said that a consumer paying $1500 a year for a mobile service can save up to $1000 a year for the same plan with his service.

FreedomPop offers free 4G data through hotspots and fills in the gaps using Sprint's network. Earlier this year the company started using 4G service from Clearwire and added Sprint's pipeline in April.

And once again another using Sprint's garbage network! as there backup. Maybey this is part of Spint's problem! They obviously don't care or they would have fixed there issues by now. Sorry couldn't resist commenting lol.

P.S Not saying it's not a good deal or wont help some people who need it. But it wont be very good reliable service is all.

There's always a catch in the end. I use Sprint's 3G and 4G LTE. I can tell you that Sprint has work to do to improve customer satisfaction. But I will wait and see how this works out for Freedompop.
